Whilst your vehicle is capable of towing your rig, there is a regulation which states that if the kerb weight of the towing vehicle is less that 3.5 tonnes (which I think your Jeep is) the maximum lengh of trailer you can legally tow is 7 metres. See http://www.dft.gov.uk/stellent/group...ds_506866.hcsp
There is a lot of debate as to where the draw bar stops & the trailer starts when measuring a trailer. The Police will probably not bother, but you can bet your insurance company will in the event of an accident.
It maybe worth getting approval in writing from your insurance company.
