Hello, we have a 2004 Jeep Unlimited V6 (longer wheelbase and okay to two 3500). We are picking up a 16' Love Bug II (weighing less than 2000 lb) on Saturday. Driving it home from Phoenix to Rio Rancho, NM. Just want to make sure we will be alright!
Hi. you sure that trailer only weighs 2000 or less? a 16 footer? I have a scamp
19 it weighs 3300lbs, any way find some truck scales on the way back,( trailer manufacturers have a tendency to understate their weights bigtime) so weigh em both, you know what the jeep weighs, you have a brake controller? or brakes
on the bug? if you do, check tire pressures and after a half hour or so stop, and put your hands on the trailer hubs.. feel too hot to touch? have em checked by a trailer place, feel warm? a little warm is okay, make sure you have the right trailer ball, make sure its tight, no wiggle.. is it a 2 inch? or 1 7/8? they have to match what ever is on the trailer coupler, jeep have an automatic transmission? check the fluid levels 15 to 20 miles down the road, smell the dipstick, smell burnt? take it to the dealer for a t tech, transmission oil change.. I betcha you will do just fine Paul Orlando fl
