Default Towing Cj7 with Commander?

We are currently towing our 1 ton Cj7 on a 16' tandem axle trailer with an 01 Grand Cherokee with a 4.7l. The trailer has electric brakes and an equalizer hitch. The ride isn't bad but we have never had a panic situation to maneuver out of yet. We are currently looking at Jeep Commanders with the 5.7l Hemi to replace the Wj. We do realize it will be a compromise but in the grand scheme of things, the amount of times per year we tow the Cj honestly do not warrant the need for a full blown tow rig yet. Has anyone here had any real world seat time experience with a Hemi Commander? What are your thoughts?

My buddy has towed his Blazer on a 16' trailer behind his Commander with the 4.7L. He also regularly tows his 29' camper behind it. He hasn't had any problems, and mentioned the Commander tows better than his previous Tahoe w/ 5.3L.
