Kind of large, but keep the weight down and you should be able to tow.
Not sure about your state and no trailer brakes...this one does not have them.
You will need brakes, as it is not what you can move,(tow), but what can you stop!
Many folks get into too much trailer weight, and don't have, or don't hook up the brakes.
Consequently...."the tail wags the dog!"

That is a M105 it is ment to be towed with a Duece 6x6.
Air brakes and way to heavy for a jeep. 2750 lbs empty
Find a M101A2 they are smaller and weigh 1350 lbs empty.
