As the Wrangler can handle a wide range of weight, it can be used to tow a variety of campers. You should only tow small, aerodynamic trailers and campers while on the road to avoid any issues.
Here’s a basic breakdown of the sizes and weights of campers that a Wrangler can handle.
- A Jeep Wrangler can tow between 600 and 4,000 pounds of dry weight when it comes to popup campers.
- Depending on the model, the Jeep Wrangler can tow 2,000 to 5,000 pounds of dry weight with its hybrid trailer.
- Jeep Wranglers are capable of towing 520 to 2,500 pounds of dry weight when it comes to teardrop campers.
- The Jeep Wrangler can handle weights ranging from 2,500 pounds to 4,000 pounds when it comes to Airstream campers.
Towing capacity is not an issue for this camper since its dry weight falls within its capabilities. They are only measured by their size, not by their dry weight. The weight of your pack will increase if you pack all your camping gear and essentials. Jeep Wranglers are likely to exceed their safe towing weight when towing large trailers or campers.
Despite its towing capacity, the Wrangler may not be able to safely tow the others. Since popup campers are small and lightweight, they can be safely towed behind Jeep Wranglers.
The pop-up camper: what is it?
Jeep Wranglers are capable of towing popup campers. There is a range of weights for pop-up campers ranging from 600 pounds to 4,000 pounds dry, but it can also be lighter or heavier than this. Wrangler owners might not want heavy or larger popup campers since they exceed its maximum towing capacity. As these are the lightest popup campers, choose a basic or midrange model that weighs 1,600 to 2,000 pounds. There are usually three beds, a living room, and a dinette in popup campers in this weight range. Popup campers are lighter and easier to carry than campers and trailers with rigid walls. It simplifies towing. If you’re not planning to camp in the winter, pop-ups can handle the elements.
