Who is towing a trailer with Jeep Gladiator?

What are you pulling.
Make and model travel trailer?
Any issues?

I think you also need to know the engine. Because of cooling issues, my understanding is the diesel has a lower rating.

Not seeing many Gladiators around me. Don't think I have seen any towing a TT. Maybe a popup? Should be able to handle more.

What is the wheelbase on the Jeep Gladiator. Don't forget wheelbase is important when deciding on length of trailer you can safely tow.

Jeep seems to pride itself on having very short wheelbase. Some Jeeps have a very dangerous wheelbase causing them to flip over easily.

A short wheelbase makes the Jeep more maneuverable, especially off-road. Lifting and making them top-heavy is what can cause them to flip. My DD has a very short wheelbase, yet is nearly impossible to flip.

Wheelbase is a factor, but so is the hitch overhang. With the Gladiator, the hitch is very close to the rear axle (short overhang) making it very stable when towing.

6500 for a diesel 7650 for a pentastar. Puts you in Airstream Flying Cloud territory.

I'd look at R-Pods, No Boundaries and Minnie FLX type trailers.

I looked up the wheelbase of the jeep Gladiator. It is a not too shabby 137.3". That is a longer wheelbase than the mid sized trucks.

I agree

Not much payload compacity on the jeep so these are reasonable choices. the V6 isn't a powerhouse so the hills and small profiles need to be some of the consideration. Yes it can be done for sure.
