A small one. Wranglers are not real good on towing trailers due to their short wheelbase.

I'm sure that you have this, but, just in case, http://www.airstream.com/travel-trailers/sport/floor-plans- specifications/

like he said, a small one- below 60 mph- with a statue of the virgin on your dashboard-

I would think it's dangerous if your tow vehicle were the same weight as your trailer.

Jeeps are not rated for towing much at all due to the short wheel base. The smallest trailer Airstream currently sells is the Sport which loaded would be about 3,500 pounds which is probably the max that your Jeep is rated for.

Mark, the tow vehicle can be a lot lighter than the trailer depending on what the tow truck is. My F150 can tow nearly twice its weight safely.

If you go ahead with your towing plans, get a weight distributing hitch and sway control and keep the speed down or you will end up upside down in a ditch. Get a good trailer brake controller too!
