Now I look forward to being a part of the community Once we find one that will work for the family, is labeled correctly
and be able to be towed with current vehicle (2014 Jeep Geand Cherokee Overland V8 5.7L HEMI).
The effort spent now will definitely pay off once we take one home.
Good luck with your search!
IMHO, you would do well to visit the scales and get your current weight. Comparing that to the Front/Rear GAWR for your vehicle will give you a much clearer picture than looking at the Max Towing numbers.
The difference between the Rear GAWR and the rear axle weight from the scale is how much cargo you can add to the rear which is where most of the tongue weight winds up. Divide that cargo number by 0.15 (15%) and you will have a decent idea of the MAXIMUM TT weight you can tow. In my experience you will overload the rear axle before you get to the Max Towing number.
