Too much trailer to tow that comfortably with your Wrangler IMO. You could maybe get the numbers to work. Your payload is less than 1k lbs, so after loaded tongue weight (500+ lbs) does not leave you much room for people or cargo in either the Jeep or the trailer. I would look at the new 2019 JL Wrangler or a different TV if you want that trailer. The JL supposed to have much better towing capacity (especially the truck bed version)


GVWR for that TT is 3860 lbs.

E19FBS

Hitch Weight 360 lbs.
UVW 2962 lbs.
CCC 898 lbs.
Exterior Length 20' 0"
Exterior Height 9' 7"
Exterior Width 88"
Fresh Water 37 gal.
Gray Water 30 gal.
Black Water 30 gal.
Awning Size 11 ft

Yep, you need a trailer with a GVWR of 3500lbs or lower.
Plus a LOADED hitch weight of under 350lbs.
Not many TTs are appropriate for the short wheelbase Unlimited.

Remember that the 3500lbs tow rating is for an empty Jeep with just 150lb driver and full gas tank.
Anything above that lowers the 3500 number by its weight.

My 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited on the yellow tag has a payload of 809 and tow rating of 3500. The you have to deal with the short wheelbase I would be looking at smaller popup.

If you would like to stay with the Forest River brand, take a look at the R-Pod lineup. Some of those models might be a better fit for your Jeep!

This is what I was going to suggest - the R-Pod. Very popular unit being towed by smaller vehicles and nicely appointed. Not going to have as much creature comfort as a standard TT, but it works.
