Migrating from 19 feet to 23 feet


With retirement fast approaching we're in the process of moving from a 2015 19 foot Flying Cloud to a 23FB. (anyone looking for a 19 or selling a 23?) Right now I'm towing with a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a V8 Hemi. I have no complaints at all.

My question, of course, is will the Jeep handle the additional weight of the 23' foot trailer? I don't generally travel faster than 65 mph when towing but I do live in Montana and travel a lot of passes.

While I realize there are myriad vehicles that will work (many more efficiently than our current tow vehicle) we're on a budget and would prefer not to incur the expense of both a different trailer and rig simultaneously.
