I have a 2004 Rubicon, and am wanting to tow behind a motor home. The jeep has 37" Good Year Wrangler tires. My concern with towing it is how well it will track behind the motor home and respond to curves and turning?

Yeah should follow you right along since it's so short.

With those tires and 4" suspension lift your caster may be off and it could reduce towing stability - how is your return to center now? ... you will have to give it a try - not a big investment.
I had (still have) the same tow bar setup and towed my 04 Rubicon over the cascades a few times when I still have 33" tires. I had experienced death wobble and lived in fear that it would happen while towing. Also did not relish the panic stop with the un-braked tow even though I was towing with a dually. Eventually I got a trailer, but I keep the tow bar as a back up.
