Who tow's small travel trailers with their TJ?

I am looking at 14 to 15 foot camping trailers. Not tent trailer's but the square small 2500 pound boxes. I know Constable tow's one, any one else? Any suggestions? I'm going to add auto trans and engine oil coolers just in case, and looking at weight equalization hitches.
Thanks
Bob

With the right gearing, the TJ tows up to 2000 lb. trailers without problem. With 40 years of towing boats & trailers, I wouldn't ask the SWB TJ to tow anything heavier than 2000 lbs, its factory recommended limit.

Your right. I thought it was 2500. My hitch is 2500. The Jeep is 2000.

I just pulled an 8 foot pop up with my wife, 3 year old son and our 3 year old Boxer 400 miles round trip with our TJ. In fact we just unpacked and settled in. I think 10' would be doable, but I certainly would not want to go larger than that. In my 97 owners manual it has a picture depicting yes to pop ups no to any other kind of camper. I think it has to do with side to side sway with the wind. At highway speeds we were ok. 75 mph was groovy, 80 the darn thing was walking right and left. Needless to say we stayed at 5 over or 75 mph.
