It would be pissed, but it could happen. The size of the trailer and balancing the weight on the trailer is key. I wouldn't recommend it.

It definitely has the ability to. Forseter weighs about 3250#s what model jeep?
You will need a 5th wheel/gooseneck trailer, with good brakes.

It should be able to do it as long as it has the tow package, and as stated I would use a gooseneck trailer. Might be to much on a hitch type trailer. Not sure what they 01 was rated for at the hitch. If it was rated for 12.5k then I would go for it either way but thats my own personal opinion.

Whats the weight of the jeep and the forester? Add that to the trailer weight and see what the total is. That will give you a better idea of what you need to do.

I planned on using a gooseneck. 25 or 30 footer if I can find one. Its an 87 wrangler. The jeep has to be towed it would take to long to get there. I figure I have a truck that can haul why drive 5 vehicles if I can tow two

Curb weight of forester is around 3200. Stock wrangler is around 2800? So max id estimate the jeep at 4200. As far as trailer I don't know. Haven't found one yet but like I said a 25 or 30 ft gooseneck

Heck if thats all it weighs I would have those suckers on a trailer in a minute. I have towed tractors on my old 02 F250 that weigh more than what you got combined. That truck should be fine with those weights and a trailer.

I agree, the trailer in my sig weighs about 7500# empty (a wedge or car hauler would be alot lighter) the tractor is about 12000#. I haul that or the backhoe on a regular basis. but like I said you need to have good brakes on the trailer.
