It seems to me that kpoulos5 (the OP) was loooking for information about how the Jeep would tow a small travel trailer, and she probably appreciated suggestions like test runs, sway controls, and transmission coolers, etc...

I highly doubt she was asking anyone's opinion on whether she should bring the cat to their new home across the country, or leave it behind at a shelter.

I also doubt she was asking anyone whether or not her 9-mo old daughter should go more than a few hours each day.

More than once she asks about the safety of the rig, and I think that's where we, as a community of Jeep enthusiasts, can offer her the most help.

OP, based on what you are trying to do and the responses given, I think you need to ask yourself the following;

Are you going to use this travel again after you reach your new home?

Do you even feel comfortable doing this trip the way you have it planned?

Will you be tempted to load the trailer down if everything doesn't fit in the moving PODS?

Are you letting your child make your travel plans?

Stopping that often because of a small child is going to make for a LONG trip. Your child will travel fine if you let her.

good luck!
