Forget that it was on Facebook

The point is this is an ad from Jeep showing the Gladiator towing an Airstream that is significantly to heavy to be towed by the specific vehicle. A standard Gladiator can tow 4500 lbs. Even the one with the max towing capacity would be overloaded with a 25FB

Sorry to derail your thread. I was just having a little fun. I was going to make one more post about how the Russians might have put up that pic, but I’ll stop.

I agree with your thoughts on the overly optimistic advertisement. It seems like a pretty big stretch for a Gladiator to pull a big Airstream like that.

Based on the windows, I think it's a 26U; but it does appear to have more on the side along the bottom than is actually on a 26U (but, could vary from year to year, back when they made a 26U perhaps?).

You'd have to really shoehorn it in to stay under limits by loading it to near 11% tongue weight, and even then it won't be a stable combination for sway at highway speeds. The engineering and test teams, clearly, were not consulted.
