2014 Jeep JKU, 2014 Manley ORV Original
For me, a '14 Manley ORV Original which is basically an m416-style trailer. I had this one built with an extendable tongue coupler for being able to pull my boats. It also was one of the first Manleys to come with a Dexter Torflex axle. I expect to use this in the same way I did before, pulling my boats, boards, and bikes, and also for camping and just general utility around the yard and town. Having the Bronco's integrated roof rack on the hardtop will be nice as I'll be able to move some things off of the trailer to the roof.

I haven't changed much about this trailer, but have Monstalined the interior, replaced all the floor tiedowns with HD versions that are tied into the frame, added the DeeZee box, and made some brackets to add the Yakima towers to the side of the tub. It also has the hitch spare carrier and I also have a Kilby offroad max-coupler on hand, but haven't used it much.

It'd be great if I could tow my Dad's enormous popup camper which he currently tows with his 5.7L WK Grand Cherokee Overland.

Here's my ZJ hitched up to move it around his driveway while his WK was in the shop. Even if the hitch were set up properly and the load levelers were on ... I'm not sure I'd want to tow this through West Virginia ...

Other than that, I'd be pulling stuff that my Golf could probably handle if I wanted. Utility trailer with a couple of motorcycles or brush or whatever.

RE; WV: Oh hell to the NO....unless that trailer is MUCH MUCH lighter than it looks, but by the way it's squatting , I think not. That's truck territory by my book.

Otherwise, I'm in about the same boat... probably get a iutility trailer for doing house projects, mulch, etc etc.
Speaking of boats, there's my Dad's Ranger fish-n-ski.... but I'll just borrow his truck .... or buy the Tremor that is catching my eye!

The WK pulls it just find pretty much anywhere but that has more everything. The popup is 3700 dry I think. Probably 5k fully loaded and I mean FULLY loaded.

But yeah, not a chance my ZJ makes it that far before something blows up.

I don't have anything I tow regularly, but every so often it's nice to be able to bring someone else's broken rally car home:

Ouch. I had an 07 Urban Gray STi. Street duty only though. No rally for me:)

Would've been this:

Just sold it last week though. In the last month, I've found out that I got into grad school for an MBA, AND my wife is pregnant. Definitely excited, but sucks to see my fun stuff (besides guns) have to go (for now).

Heaviest things I have regularly towed would be a single car, a Polaris ranger, and a hay round bail or two. So if the Bronco hits around 5,000 I’ll be fine, I would like the higher end Just in case.

Yeah - I went from 911 to Miata to Jetta for the same reasons a long while back. The outcomes were worth it though. Congrats!
