We have friends that he pulls a trailer behind their motor home and she drives their car to their camping spot.
Along these lines, I could pull our 5th wheel, while the wife drives the Jeep.
This way, she has all the comforts, while I can explore with the Jeep.

really appreciate how well they seem to be made... of course, pretty pricey... more info at link below...

This was our first trip with my 2011 JKU. It pulled the Popup pretty well.

This one has gone nicely over the mountains, service, forest roads and in the canyons without problems...behind my F150! Now with the Jeep I am selling it and gonna build a Jeep capable trailer. It has served me well though!

|Knockabout||rirrgang your right but this was a quick trip to NC and the maiden voyage with the new JKU, and I hadn't been told by the lady we would be bringing back a few hundred pounds of apples for her friend, and I used what I had--not the greatest idea I admit. However I'm installing a lift next month and I only wanted to spend those $ once on a receiver setup. After lift and tires we remeasure and get it right.|

|rirrgang||You really need to get the right height ball on that hitch. A set of air bags on the JK wouldn't hurt either.|

|Knockabout||here's our "squared off" teardrop--gives an extra shelf inside and in the back kitchen, a huge benefit. I know it looks low in the tongue but the back is loaded with bags of apples and I haven't installed the lift yet. 14" clearance does well of FS and BLM roads. The AC is really nice if you can only make Moab in August! Great in Florida.|

I have a 1999 Aliner Classic ( sorry no picture handy) I have pulled it with my 82 Scrambler, 05 LJ so I don't think it will be no problem for my new JKURX.
I haven't been on their website lately but they had off road / expedition model. Try dannyscampers.com . Aliner has several sizes and flor plans, even a small bathroom.

Thought I'd share some pics from downunder on a recent trip about 6 hours north of home in the Flinders Ranges.
The trailer is an ex Australian Army Engineers Trailer complete with lunette and towed by the JK with a Pintle Hook attached.
I had a local supplier adapt an existing camper top to fit the trailer and it worked out just great.
Tows really well up to 60mph and follows the Jeep really well. The trailer runs Land Rover rims and 7.50x16 Steeltreks, from the Army and has plenty of space inside under the camper top for whatever I want to carry.
This trip started very wet and slippery and ended on the last day, heading home, at 106F, when I got a flat on the Jeep.

So, both the M1101 and the M1102 can haul 1.4 tons. To do this safely, the tow vehicle is the determining factor.
I do not plan on hauling any more than 1000 lbs., so total weight would be 2460 lbs. Our JKUR is rated for 3500 lbs. so we could haul a payload of 2000 lbs and still be under the 3500 lbs. maximum for our Jeep.
We have a 2012 Ford psd that we will be able to use the full capacity of the trailer.

When I used my TJ, no pics with it behind my JK sorry, I never had any issues. 6cyl. My JK will tend to wobble a bit at certain speeds but never an issue towing the weight. My trailer is decent sized for a pop up but I have no idea what it weighs.

|rirrgang||How about a Jeep behind a camper instead?|

|RemoJK||Can't wait for nice weather to go camping|

|scipio337||Love the M1101, but they're 3/4 ton, unloaded. Is weight towing in a Wrangler an issue? They're certainly cheaper than the lighter M416/100 variants.|

We just purchased a M1101 trailer. It is a 2011 and has brand new tires. They are 37x12.5 hummer type tires and wheels. I will sell the tires and buy shorter tires and modify the tongue so the trailer rides level and uses a standard hitch. We will install a camper top to keep supplies dry and dust free while being towed behind our Jeep. I will also change it from 24 volt to 12 volt system. Once I get it finished I will post pictures. The trailer looks great and should work fine, after the modifications. The below picture looks just like ours.
Surge brakes, individual locking wheels, aluminum bed, numerous tie downs, outriggers are some of the amenities of this trailer.

I saw a new model VW Beetle towing a Scamp this week. Should be no problem for a Jeep.
Might want to check this one out as well. I have been wanting one for years. I drive by their factory/office about twice a month. Just haven't pulled the trigger.

Got my eye out for one of these-
Travel Trailers: Great Small Lightweight Campers - Scamp Trailers
The 13' has an option of for a toilet. A camping girl's best friend. Anyone have any experience with one of these? Less than 2000 lbs. The Fiberglass RV forum (there is one; I kid not) seems to like them- saw several Jeep owner profiles.
