9 Small Campers to Pull Behind Your Jeep Wrangler

Let’s take a look at the Wrangler’s towing capacity and some pull-behind campers.

You can go on off-road adventures and have your camper along for meals, sleeping, and storage. Instead of purchasing a different vehicle for a larger travel trailer, the Wrangler can do the job with small campers.

I drive a 2020 Jl on 35s and pull an OG free solo behind it and have taken it on many longer trips. It pulls great and makes an awesome base camp so I can explore the surrounding areas. It is well worth the experience!!!!!
