Well I was hoping for some RV pics and info but ok. Thanks!

I searched for Grand Cherokee towing RVs and of course you'll find lots of v6, diesel and some hemi people but no Trackhawks. I know the TH is not meant to tow large RVs but from the experience I have towing trailers I think it can be a tight contender. Had multiple 3500 Ram diesels that towed bumper pulls and fifth wheels awesome, but time to downsize. Many RV police say get the right vehicle for the right job. If you stay within factory weight limits, properly setup and have the experience I think you'll be ok. I also had a 2500 Suburban that sucked towing. Poor power-to-weight ratio, high CG, lose suspension and high profile tires all allowed trailer wags. I don't think I'll get that from a tightly setup low profile suspension that the trackhawk has. We shall see.

Only a lightweight trailer that is not more than half the weight of the car, otherwise it is simply dangerous. We also took a house on wheels, indeed it is really very heavy and you need to drive carefully with it. But honestly, it is a cool thing and a perfect opportunity to travel and have a rest with your family and friends. To tell the truth, we started to buy all the necessary equipment for it and we took all the bad and kitchen techniques. It remains to finish the shower part and order a compact washer dryer machine so we could keep our clothes clean and do not worry about how to dry your laundry.

TH weighs about 5300lbs and is rated to tow 7200lbs (I think). As long as you are under your rated weight, you will be ok. Where people mess up towing is how the weight of the item being towed is distributed.
