RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee W/Towing Package IV

I have the same Jeep as you, and while I tow my '16 Flagstaff with it a lot, I would never consider a TT as heavy or as long as you are looking at. I come in at just over 5,000# loaded for boondocking, and am only 21 1/2' long. Lighter weight if I am sure I'll be in a campground over night. You only have 114" wheelbase, tow capacity of 6200# with the V6. The V8 gives you 7200# towing, but is still too short. Look for a smaller trailer or a truck to pull the bigger one with.

RE: 2021 Grand Cherokee?

I've towed my 21 1/2 ft (total length) Flagstaff 21FBRS with my '16 JGC for about 25,000 miles over the last 5 years. It has the V6, so is rated to tow 6200#. My trailer is just over 5,000# loaded, and it is only me and the DW in the Jeep, and very little more cargo inside. So we hit the scales at 10,200# I live in AZ, and tow all over the west. Mountains and canyons are not a problem. and wind is very little problem. My Equal-I-Zer is set up very well, so when the wind is bad, like always in New Mexico, I just slow down. I've had no reliability issues with the Jeep. Also, I think the another poster is mistaken is saying the 2021 JGC is on the Alfa base. That is the 3 row that they call the WL and is a 2022. It is starting to be shipped. But the 2021 is a 2 row, known as the WK2, and is still on the Mercedes platform as it has been since 2013.
