towing with a 2.0L Patriot?? help!
Can anyone help with towing questions specifically related to towing and Jeep Patriots?? I have a 2016 Jeep Patriot with a 2.0L engine that can only tow 1000lbs.
i'm looking at micro campers made by Runaway. they make one for motorcycles that only weighs 520lbs and then there is a Runaway CoolCamp that is closer to 700lbs. i've read that you are not supposed to exceed 80% of your tow amount so that would be technically 800 lbs. but do you need to count the people and cargo inside the jeep?
what the heck is tongue weight - do you have to add that to the amount you're towing? ahh! so confusing. also, i want to take this to Colorado which means mountains! I don't want to kill my Pat - I LOVE MY PAT!! thanks if anyone can explain this!
