We are looking at purchasing a 17 foot Casita either the Liberty or Independence Deluxe to tow with our Rubicon. Anyone have firsthand experience with this combo or similar size weight trailer. How stable, any sway issues. The Casita should have a ready to travel weight of 3200-3300 lbs. I did some quick calculations on the HP required to move this setup 60mph-65HP with a 52 square foot frontal area and 8700lbs combined weight. Add a 4 percent grade and the HP required goes to 140 for the same 60mph. With 4.10 gears and stock size tires the Rubicon is turning about 2650rpm at 60mph (4th in auto trans) and makes about 115hp according to dyno charts. Seems from the calculations it should easily pull a Casita from a performance standpoint. I tow my 18 foot bass boat (about 2500lbs) 1-2 times per week and I can barely tell it is there. The frontal area of the Casita is way over what Jeep recommends as max, but the calculations indicate the power should be more than adequate. Used a drag factor .60 for the calculations which is the approximate drag factor for a modern faired semi.
