Can I tow my Jeep with 99 HR?

I'm brand new to RVing and just bought a 99 HR gas engine 36 ft. I am curious about what I can tow. I have a 2011 Jeep Grand cherokee. Will I be able to tow this vehicle with my RV?

Even if it's 4wd it depends on which transfer case you have LINK. Then if it has one that is flat towable it depends on what your rig will tow and the ACTUAL weight of the GC, not the book "curb weight" which is almost never the actual weight.

Your rig's tow capacity depends on its weight (actual again) when ready to travel subtracted from the GCVWR. or the hitch capacity whichever is less.

Good luck, I strongly suspect that, as heavy as the GC has gotten over the years you may be a bit over.

EDIT: Sorry, almost forgot and enjoy that rig!!!

What is your hitch rating?
What is the GCVWR?
What is the actual weight of the GC rigged to tow?

I suspect the rig and hitch are 5,000# rated and the GC itself is about 4,000#'s

Thanks. Guess I have a lot to learn. My CG is 4x4, and I think it weighs around 4700 lbs. How about towing it with a dolly so only 2 wheels are down? The owners manual says I can tow it if I put the transfer case in neutral, but I'm not sure about the RV's capability.

If you do a search on "jeep toad" you will learn a lot.
If you have the proper transfer case you can tow 4-down. Jeep 4wd cannot be towed on a dolly, will destroy transfer case.

Your owners manual for your jeep should have a towing section my 1995 wrangler manual spelled it out quite clearly.
