Jeep towing question

I have a 2007 Jeep Commander with a Hemi and tow package (group IV). Can I tow a 25' airstream assuming a proper weight distribution hitch?

Look on the driver side of your AS. There you will find the GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) Then look on the door post drivers side of the Jeep and there you will find another plate OR sticker which will give the towing capacity of your Jeep. Those two should answer your questions.

There are certainly plenty of opinions out there, and anecdotes about the miracles that can be worked with the proper "set-up," but ultimately, weight distribution does not change the mfg's max tow rating, and just because someone can tell you they did it without problems, doesn't mean you should.

Your best bet is to look up your Jeep's published "official" tow rating, and then to compare that with the published gross weight of a loaded trailer of your choice. When you see how the actual numbers compare you can then decide how much risk you are willing to take. Remember also, that it isn't always how much you can pull, it is also how much you can stop.

good luck!
