2009 JK Tent Trailer Tow Question
I have the following question, sorry if it's been asked before.
I have a 2009 JK Rubicon. It's tow rated for 2000 lbs, max trailer tongue weight 200 lbs, with a standard factory tow package installed.
I would like to buy a 2013 Rockwood Freedom 1950 tent trailer with a base axle weight of 1492, and a base dry hitch weight of 240. Total dry weight of 1732.
Are the "max tongue weight" and "dry hitch weight' referencing the same thing?
Since the 240 pound dry hitch weight exceeds the 200 pound tongue weight, am I out of luck? Does anyone have experience towing a tent trailer such as this? Would a weight distributing hitch solve my problem, if I have one to begin with?
As far as tent trailers go, it's on the very light side. It would look great behind my rig!
