Jeep GC Hemi

I am considering the purchase of a 2015 25FC twin. My current daily driver is a low mileage Jeep with a Hemi. My guess is that with a proper hitch, this will serve well as a TV. Comments?

Agree, I am satisfied with my 2011JGC Hemi with my 23. I am considering upgrading again to something in the 26 foot range. I thank the current Jeep will do the job.

We have a 2014 JGC with the 5.7L Hemi and, while its towing capacity is 7200#, it is the limited hitch weight capacity that keeps it from being a second tow vehicle for our Pendleton. Make sure you check that specification and capacity equation between your 25FC and the JGC you are contemplating.

I have a 2013 GC with the hemi and factory tow package. My AS is a 2006 Safari 25 FB. If I said it once, I've said it 100 times: ignore the damn labels and actually weigh the trailer. Ready to use, the Safari weighs between 6200 and 6400 pounds. I'm also using a Propride hitch that adds to the tongue weight. Again, no problems. The only debate might be the GC air suspension.

I have a 2012 Jeep GC Overland, air suspension, 20" wheels, and the hemi.
My trailer is a 2014 20' FC, weight of about 5000# loaded for travel, 700# tongue weight as measured at the scales. I use an Andersen hitch.

I have been very satisfied with the package.
