With the Rubi 4.10 gearing you can two 3500# (4 door). Same goes for 4 door with 3.73 gear ratio

2door is limited to 2000# regardless of gearing

I got a chance to see them at the bantam jeep heritage fest. I was really impressed. I am considering one also. Although they seem a bit pricey.

I have always liked the Tab trailers! I'm a retro guy. Let us know how it went... pics? I prob will get more of an off road trailer and have seen some "Tab looking" off road ones. I think they are very cool!

The trip was great, but the gas mileage sucked. It tows easily, and I have a 3.8 with 3.21 gears (6-speed manual). The trailer has good road manners and is nicely insulated very useable.

Built this one in 2006 to go behind the F150. Redoing some interior and repainting white, to SELL IT! Got the bug to build another but MORE offrad to go behind the Jeep and with the fold out tent style.

I know you're looking specifically at campers, but have you seen the Liberty tent? Apparently it used to come with the jeep liberty. I picked one up on ebay and the thing is gigantic. I would say it's probably the same size as some of the smaller campers that folks have been posting on here.
It might broaden your options of where you can camp.
It's stored in a duffel, has color-coded poles, and connects directly to the jeep (or not, as you prefer). There is a big room and then a sort of entryway that can either be used apart from the jeep or connected directly to the jeep and (mostly) sealed. If you google it for images, try googling "jeep liberty tent" ... it's the red/white/grey one.
If you've got a JK, you can fold down the seats and have it be part of the tent.
It's a bit of a gimmick, but so are a lot of jeep things

Finishing up some details on that teardrop, the GT/HOT Bullnose, to sell it. I want to build a "JEEPABLE" Expedition trailer now.

Hi, curious to know how you did with it (mpg).

Ours is a 2dr 2012 3.6l, 6 speed manual with 3.73 gears. We have made a 1600 miles road trip with our trailer.
On our way there, it did 17.7 mpg at an average of 65 mph. On our way back it did 17.2 mpg at about the same speed. (Calculated, not taken from the computer).

We are pleased with these numbers, same trailer with our previous 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara V6 2.7l auto was doing only 14.8 mpg

How on earth did you get that while towing? I struggle to get that even if I'm not towing and most of the miles I put on it are highway... (and no, I don't drive it like a racecar )
