Edit: There is a problem with the towing capacity of the Jeep... I do not think that my Jeep or any Jeep will handle the 2006 Jayco Jayflight 31BHDS Camper Trailer that my uncle has that I was PLANNING on towing to the OBX for beach week....
how much does the camper weigh.

damnnnnn... oh well, looks like I was have to take the Dirtymax instead.

Edit: It is a 2007 Chevy 3500 4-door long bed dually with the LTZ package if anyone wanted to know.

Do you think the Jeep can even pull a camper? One this around 5K pounds?

Even though a WJ with the H.O. V8 probably could pull it, you'd want trailer brakes with a brake controller, and I just don't see it being feasible. The drivetrain was not designed for it. The engine was not designed for it. The unibody was not designed for it. You're better off with the p-u truck. Yeah, I said it. Now learn to camp in the Jeep like best of us. No pansy-ing out by sleeping in a camper.

It doesn't sound like you'll be doing much Jeep-related stuff then? Just camping, and not at a location that requires a Jeep to get there? Not that you'd want to try to get that trailer anyplace like that. Where are you headed to camp? "Camp" though is a loose term here, as you're going to be in a comfy trailer. I'm just messing with ya though.

4k shouldn't be too bad with trailer brakes and a brake controller.

Heading to the obx after grad. Wanted jeep for driving on beach. And the amount of people that were planning on coming. So the camper would be optimal. I don't have that much money for a house. Figured the smaller space in the camper would keep the girls closer to me.

Edit: I am going to look into a smaller lighter camper could rent for a week.
