stated, you may want to go with a V8 Durango or Jeep GC. And if it's either one, go with something bigger than the 4.7L.
We pulled an '08 23SS Roo with an '04 Jeep GC with a 4.7 High Output engine. 60mph was the best I was comfortable with - I wouldn't have wanted a smaller engine nor would I have wanted any bigger trailer. I figure I was pretty much maxed out. Going over the mountains here in Western MD, I was always bogged down and running high rpms. Pretty much at the ragged edge of my comfort zone. When we went to a bigger TT and much bigger TV, I found how comfortable pulling a trailer could actually be. DW even commented on how relaxed I was compared to pulling the Roo with the GC.
Congrats on the new Hybrid.
