12 Great Campers For Jeep Wrangler Owners: 2024 Models

Few vehicles on the road can boast such a high level of popularity and borderline obsession from the people who drive Jeep Wranglers. As rugged as they are, Wranglers don’t exactly have a massive towing capacity. Thankfully, there are quite a few options out there for campers that are perfect for Jeep Wrangler owners.

Jeep owners aren’t cruising highways and spending their camping trip inside a luxury fifth wheel. They are out exploring and looking for new unspoiled locations. Although Jeep campers may be small, they serve the exact purpose Jeep owners require.

Mike and Susan, the owners of RVBlogger.com and TravelTrailerPro.com, own a 2 door Jeep Wrangler they have towed around the country with them for 2 years! They provided the recommendations in this article for the best campers to tow behind a Jeep.

Let’s take a closer look at Jeeps, what they can tow, and some of the best Jeep campers on the market right now.

Can A Jeep Wrangler Tow A Camper Trailer?

The 2-door Wrangler is the biggest lightweight in the family when it comes to towing. Due to this, the only real Jeep camper options here are teardrops and pop-up campers. 4-door Jeeps have a bit more power, giving them a larger variety of options

Broadly speaking, the answer is yes. But, what you can tow will depend on exactly which model of Jeep you have. And even more powerful Jeeps still have fairly limited towing capacities. 

There’s also the Jeep Gladiator truck, which is quite a bit more powerful than its Wrangler brothers. Because it’s beefier, the Gladiator can tow a much wider range of travel trailers, including mid-sized ones. 

How Much Can A Jeep Wrangler Tow?

So, we’ve seen that Jeep Wranglers can tow some trailers. But how much exactly can they tow?

For a 2-door Wrangler, your towing capacity tops out at 2,000 lbs. That might sound like a lot to the uninitiated, but in fact, it’s less than many cars can tow. This seriously reduces the number of Jeep campers available.

The 4-door fares a bit better with a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, in part due to the longer wheelbase. This still isn’t exactly impressive, but it at least opens your trailer options up a little more.

There are also rumors of the 4-door Jeep Wrangler towing capacity increasing to 5,000 lbs for the next model year, so keep your fingers crossed. 

How Much Can The Jeep Gladiator Tow?

Jeep’s Gladiator truck is, unsurprisingly, a bit beefier in the towing department than either Wrangler option. It more than doubles the 4-door Wrangler’s tow capacity with a max of 7,700 lbs.

This means the Gladiator is your best bet if you want a Jeep with decent towing capacity. When you compare it to other trucks, however, it’s still a fair amount weaker than other trucks on the market. 

12 Small Campers You Can Tow With Your Jeep

Since the 2-door and 4-door Jeep Wranglers have different tow capacities, we’ll break things down by model, with 5 Jeep campers for each.

The Gladiator’s beefier towing capacity means it’s easier to find trailers for it, but we’ll also give you a couple of options there too, including a truck bed camper!

Why Are Jeeps So Popular?

Jeeps are massively popular vehicles, and they have a cult of personality around them that few other cars can even hold a candle to. For example, we have mastered the “Jeep Wave” and we get ducked on a regular basis. But just why are they so popular?

Part of it is their classic and iconic design based on American military vehicles from World War 2. The Jeep’s versatility is also a big contributing factor to its popularity. It can be driven as a daily driver to and from work during the week, then taken out for off-road adventures on the weekend. 

The thriving community of Jeep lovers is a big source of its popularity as well. You’re likely already familiar with the “Jeep wave” that owners share whenever they pass one another. But this is far from the only part of Jeep Mania—rubber duckies, meetups, and more all help contribute to the unique culture around these special vehicles. 

Of course, even considering all this, there’s one main thing we can point to that makes Jeeps so popular: they’re just awesome! 

How Much Do Jeeps Cost?

Jeeps are great vehicles, but they aren’t exactly affordable. Prices start around $30,000 at the low end, and go all the way up to $90,000 at the high end for the 392 Hemi version. 

While you can save some money by buying a used Jeep, you’re still looking at paying a pretty penny. Jeeps hold their value well, meaning even a 10-year-old Jeep with significant mileage can still cost over $20,000. 

Is It Safe To Haul A Camper With A Jeep Wrangler?

Yes, it is safe to haul a camper with a Jeep Wrangler, but you’ll have to keep a few things in mind first. 

First and most importantly, you’ll need to pay careful attention to your Jeep’s specs. Ensure your trailer, plus gear and supplies, doesn’t exceed the tow limit for your Wrangler. If you don’t, you could end up damaging both your Jeep and your camper. 

Are Jeeps Hard On Fuel?

Are Jeeps Hard On Fuel?

While newer Jeeps have somewhat better fuel economy than older models, overall, Jeeps are not fuel-efficient vehicles. In fact, they can be pretty hard on fuel, owing in part to their not-so-aerodynamic design.

While the stats place the Jeep Wrangler’s fuel economy at 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, as is the case with most vehicles, you’ll likely get worse mileage in the real world.

If you’ll be towing with your Jeep, your fuel economy will be even worse. Some statistics show that every extra 100 pounds on your vehicle reduces MPG by about 1%, so a 3,000-pound trailer means a 30% drop in fuel economy. And this is before factoring in things like drag which will also drop your miles per gallon. 

Final Thoughts About Campers You Can Tow With A Jeep

The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic vehicle, and for good reason. While they don’t have the highest towing capacity around (especially for the 2-door), there are still plenty of amazing Jeep campers on the market right now.

Jeeps scream adventure so combining yours with a compatible camper can make for some epic trips.

Whatever option you choose, you’re sure to be the envy of the RV park when you roll up with your Jeep camper in tow.
