Welcome to JOF

More importantly, I would confirm that your Jeep Liberty's specified weight limits will accommodate the potential "loaded" weights of the Jayco 1006, and/or the 1206 model. Please note that RV manufactures published UVW and Dry weights don't represent "going camping" weights.

As far as wheelbase, yes, in many cases longer TV wheelbases will enhance some TV handling/ride characteristics,... but you should be fine towing within the Jeep Liberty's and a PUP's specified weight limits.

If you would like to discuss in more detail your Jeep's specified weight limits and how they may associate to a particular PUP, feel free to start another thread over in the "Towing and Tow Vehicle" sub-forum.

Here are a couple recent JOF threads pertaining to the Jeep Liberty that may be helpful:
