Sprinter chassis towing Jeep

It am interested in a small motorhome based on the Sprinter Chassis, haven't decided exactly which model yet. Does anyone tow a Jeep Wrangler with this type of MH? Any issues with power? Secondary choice for a toad would be a Mini Cooper, but kind of want the open top and 4 wheel drive for some exploring.

Thanks for any comments

I have had two Sprinters the last one was the 188 hp...The vehicle I towed weighed 3700 lbs a Honda Element...I had no trouble but I did
not go out west to the Mountains with either...Go to the scale weigh and the vehicle do not overload you will be sorry..

Good friend tows his TJ Wrangler with his Sprinter Conversion and has no real issues. Takes some of the mountains slowly, but he gets everywhere he wants; this includes a number of trips into the mountains of Colorado. He has a brake controller for the TJ to help with the braking, which should be high on your list if you do it.

Thank you for the information. Overall did you have any issues with the sprinter MH? I have talked to a couple of people that have owned them and they were very happy with them.
