13 Best Campers For Jeep Wrangler In 2023

Towing with a Jeep Wrangler is pretty easy when you choose the right camper trailer for camping.

Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic and popular off-road vehicles in the world, which work with all small or lightweight campers. No doubt, it can take you to a place that other cars cannot reach. The SUV still follows the same boxy design with improved towing capacity and few off-roading mechanisms.

However, it offers more power, new features, and most important for any trailer owner – towing capability. Still, I’ve seen people questioning capability and towing limits.

In addition, there are various questions Wrangler owners ask online. Well, I’ve covered a few of them. Let’s understand in detail, shall we?

Which is the Best Camper for your Jeep Wrangler?

Jeep offers excellent practicality for all camping lovers. Whether it’s ground clearance, camping ability, or enormous power, Jeep can track any terrain without any issue and tow a wide range of campers. Keeping towing limits in mind, I would prefer Black Series Dominator for looks, Cricket Camper for looks and great practicality, and Sylvan Sport Go for being one of the lightest.

Since the 2022 Jeep Wrangler can tow up to 3,500 lbs safely and you might need to add extra luggage, gears, or other essentials during camping. Let’s check more from the list and see a perfect sync between your Jeep & camper.

What is the Towing Capacity of a 2022 Jeep Wrangler?

The 2020-21 Jeep Wrangler can tow up to 3,500 pounds without any mechanical issues. However, it depends on the model and variant of the SUV. All 2-door Jeep Wranglers have a maximum tow limit of up to 2,000 pounds, whereas all 4-door models can bear up to 3,500 pounds.

Few common variants come standard across 3 or 4-door configurations, but only the Sport Altitude, Sahara, and Sahara Altitude models can give you a towing capability of 3,500 pounds.

Always Mind the Maximum Tow Capacity of Jeep Wrangler!

Now that you are aware of towing capacities of several Wrangler variants, it is time to learn 2 basic towing rules in mind.

  • Never break the towing threshold of your Jeep Wrangler
  • Always try to tow between 60 to 70% of the capacity.

Even if the manufacturer promises a towing capacity for a particular Jeep model, you should not break that threshold. Towing up to the maximum number can give your Jeep multiple problems like – mechanical failure, low pick-up, and unbalanced ride quality. You should also check the average travel trailer weight for more information.

There is no strange that GO doesn’t come with any stand-out features, and there’s not enough space.
