Wanting to rent travel trailer for a 3 night camping trip for 4 (wife and I and 2 small grandchildren)
2.0L turbo with factory tow package is rated at 4000lbs and 400lb tongue weight.
Cargo in Cherokee would be 400 lbs for 4 passengers , assume up to 400 tongue weight, leaving about 100lbs for remaining car cargo.
Any particular travel trailers would anyone recommend to safely tow?
Or what weight specs should I be looking for when renting? Not familiar with all the front axle, rear axle specs and what particular weights I should be paying attention to.
If anyone knows of any particular brands/models that could sleep 4 that I would be able to safely tow, it would be greatly appreciated

Make sure you use a weight distribution hitch if you are pushing close to the max. It will help put some of the weight back on the front tires. Also, the receiver, propane tanks, and battery aren't included in the tongue weight they advertise, most of the time.
