Default new to me fun finder x-214wsdf and towing it

I am possibly purchasing my Grandpas 2012 fun finder x-214wsdf and my tow vehicle is a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. That year Jeep is rated to tow 6200LBS. The 2012 214wsdf is 4,100lbs dry. I already towed it 3 hours home and it did do the job, but I was trying to stay at about 68 MPH. I think I need to go a little slower because it seemed a lot happier at 60MPH. anyone have any experience towing a trailer like that with with a 14 or newer grand Cherokee or Durango? Those years they are almost the same car. I am purchasing my Grandpas who has passed away so it's not like I can just pick a smaller trailer, It has a lot to do with sentimental value, and I am not ready to trade in the Jeep. Just trying to get others experiences. thanks!

Stick to the 75% rule and you will be fine.
A 4100 lb trailer will 5000-5500 in real life.
Your vehicle is rated for 6200 lb. 75% of 6200 is 4600.
While you squeeze under IF EMPTY, you will wear out your JGC quickly pulling so much.
The 14 JGC unless it has lots of extras, like aux cooling, and other "trailer package" add ons, was not made to pull a 21' trailer.
If nothing else, make sure you have working trailer brakes, and a good weight distributing hitch, properly installed, based on the tongue weight rating of you vehicle.
