Small RV or Toy Hauler for Jeeps?

Does anyone here toy some kind of a small rv or small toy hauler with their jeep? I am looking to get something like that but the jeeps towing capacity seems pretty small.

I'm not sure of what your question really is tow the jeep with a recreational vehicle or tow your recreation behind the jeep??

I have a 6X10 high box covered utility trailer. Tow capacity of my jeep is 3500. Limit of the trailer is 2900. I have probably had it close to that limit. I take mine camping for weeks at a time. Kayaks on top, bikes, SCUBA and all kinds of camping gear and kayaking gear inside including a foldup kayak trailer inside. The jeep grunts a little, the gas mileage goes down to about 10mpg but I always get there. Some inclines on the highway I've had to shift down to 4th to maintain above 55 but IMO I figure that is part of the equation when towing something that heavy with a jeep.

I don't see the issue. The more info you gather, the more informed your choices will be.

Robert at Outlander Trailers can make anything you can dream up.

I've met him and seen his creations in person. They're incredible.
