Hi MikeW,
I will not go into my whole history on towing with Jeep GCs since it gets pretty boring but I have made numerous posts on my experience with them, which in a nut shell, is very positive. My 2003 4.7 HO towed a 25' 97 Safari for 300,000 k, using a Reese dual cam, and it currently has about 500,000 k on it, but has been put out to pasture, ie, one of my sons is towing his 20', 67 Globetrotter with it and can be seen in the photo below on his way to Northern Alberta last week, and the other photo is at Christmas in Florida Attachment 212927ATTACH]212925[/ATTACH]. I have a new 14 GC Diesel, replacing an 08 GC Diesel, which is just awesome, and even though I have been extremely pleased with all previous Jeeps, this one is better in all departments, period. A photo In a recent previous post shows my 30' Signature in Saint Andrews taken on Sunday. The caveat on my comments pertaining to Jeeps is one of having no experience with any other type of vehicle. Small correction to Andy's post in the event you want more history from my previous posts, my name is singular. Bottom line, I would get the Safari and go camping. Jim

In the end, for modern tow vehicles utilized for Airstream duty - Max Payload is the biggest limiting factor...
