Hi Michel and welcome to!  8)

The 5000 lb max towing for the Jeep Liberty assumes an empty vehicle and no passengers - just the driver aqlone. Everything you carry in the Liberty must be subtracted from the max tow number. Even the weight of the hitch! And we usually recomend that you stay under the max by a least 10%, especially on a smaller vehicle. I'd say you should confine your trailer shopping to those with a GVWR (not unladen weight or UVW) of 4000 lbs or less.
