Yes, it has a heater, air conditioning, a tv, stereo, 22 gallon fresh water tank, sink, wifi booster, digital tv antenna, microwave, two big batteries, led lights, USB ports, 12v and 110 plugs. roof rack,Just curious..Does a camper like that come with some kind of heater... I guess I could just br8a space heater though...
Great setup. I think it’s about the perfect size/weight for the jlu. With MarioC it’s a sample size of only three, but .If I keep my speed between 60-65 mph on the interstate I will get 10 MPGs I tow a Geopro 15tb and I use a sway bar which is a big help. It tows great.
My Geopro 15tb has a hitch weight of 327lbs. The newer ones do have a higher hitch weight like you describe. I added a second battery to the front and have one full tank of LP, this increased my hitch weight to just over the 350 limit. To counter some of the hitch weight, I placed my recovery gear and tools to the rear of the Travel Trailer. If you have to, you could disconnect and move your battery and LP tanks inside over the Axles and try to secure them so they don't move around while driving. You don't want to overload the tail end of your trailer because of fishtail issues. make sure your hitch weight is at least 10 % of the total trailer weight and get a good sway bar. Make sure you Have/Get a break controller installed on your jeep I believe a weight distribution hitch will only be of value when used for trailers over 4000 lbs, It won't do you any good at 3500 lbs. When you are hitched up and driving at night, every oncoming vehicle will think you have your high beams on so try hard not to watch oncoming traffic because they will regularly bombard you with their brights, its best to look away from them at all times and watch your lane.Hi all!
I am so glad I found this post and the information was so helpful but I am still not 100% sure that the travel trailer I am looking at is going to be towable without any issues.
I have been considering my options for a travel trailer and have narrowed it down to the E-Pro 15tb or the 19fd. I will be taking this from Washington to Arizona and have never towed with the JL before. I am used to towing large loads with an F350 but don't want to have to take the truck and fifth wheel. I want to make sure I get the right one for me (love the 19fd for the space but the 15tb is more weight appropriate). My biggest concern is that everything I read says that the JL has a 3500/350 towing/hitch capacity and even though both of these are under that 3500 they are not under the 350. I have researched and see many people who say the 19fd is no problem to tow but it starts at a dry weight of 3167 with a hitch weight of 418. The 15tb has a dry weight of 2608 and hitch weight of 374. I would really love to have the larger trailer and see many people seem to be towing it just fine. When I am back in Washington I will be using the husband's F350 to haul it but don't want to take his truck with me in case he needs it for work.
A couple of notes on what I travel with. I will have the bare necessities but travel with an umbrella cockatoo so the extra room would be great. He has a small travel cage so I don't think this will cause any weight issues but think it is about 20 to 25 pounds by itself.
I would appreciate any thoughts and advice that people have.
