Howdy all! We picked up our new 2016 Vision 19RB travel trailer yesterday and brought it home. Used a Husky weight distribution system/sway control and the Jeep had no problem towing it or stopping it (bought brake controller from E Trailer). Traveled about 30 miles to get home on some pretty steep hills. Left it is Sport mode and it did ok...I liked it better controlling it myself (and more fun) using the paddle shifters! Dry weight is approx 3200 lbs and fully outfitted would weight 5200 lbs.
Backing it into our long winding driveway was an adventure in itself...but managed it no problem!
I ll post pictures when we go camping!
18,000 trouble free miles!

I've been thinking about doing something like that. I used to tow our old Airstream with our previous JGC V-8 using weight distribution hitch and air bag lifts on the rear axel. Never had a problem. Keep us posted.
