How about some more info on your class c rv. Been thinking alot about getting a class c to haul the Jeep around to the offroad parks. How well does it handle towing your TJ? What brand and how long is your car hauler?

It's an '06 we bought in Feb of '07. It is a 26' Four Winds 5000 with the Triton V10. It has one big slide out.

I bought this one because it is the smallest class C that FW made with the E-450 chassis. It has the same chassis as the 30 footers, but without the long rear overhang. I figured it would gain me a little more as far as towing and packing stuff in it. The next smaller one is only on the E-350 chassis.

It tows the Jeep just fine. The trailer is a 18' dovetail.
I have not had any major problems with it at all. We like it.

I'll just add: my parents had the 30 footer with the E-450 and the Triton V-10. We hauled a Durango around the mountains with it just fine. Gas mileage was non-existent, but it worked. We flat-towed though. I am curious, why would you use a trailer for a Jeep? It adds weight.

Thanks for the info. How are the MPG when you are towing the Jeep? Its a nice looking RV. We are looking at RV in the 26' to 28' range.

BTW do you have any idea if one of these would work on a WJ with no rear tire on the back. I'm wondering how long the straps are . I figure it could be rigged to the roof rails on even carried on top I guess.
I watched a video of a guy with a trasharoo on his tire. he slid backwards while on a fairly steep climb. tire hit a rock, crushing a glass bottle in the trasharoo; the bottle then slices all the way into his spare tire.

certaintly a fluke, but it happened once, itll happen again.

Tip of the day, don't bring glass bottles with you!

I flat towed for years before I finally bought a trailer. Why I trailer?

1. Any major breakage I can still get it home.
2. Trailer tires are much cheaper than 35" MT's
3. The trailer comes in handy for a whole bunch of other stuff at home.
4. The wife says it makes a great dry patio if it rains while camping.

That makes sense. We weren't towing an off-road vehicle. I mean, it was, but we didn't use it for that.

Anyways, latest camping pic with the Jeep: (no pics of the campground that include the jeep though)

I have a 99 Fourwinds 22ft on E350 and V10 and tow my jeep on a 16ft dove tail with electric brakes. The two most important reasons I tow is (1) save on the odometer on the Jeep (and trailer tires are cheaper than my BFG's), and (2) I can "always" get my Jeep home if I break something that cannot be fixed on the trail....accidents happen. We can also tow my Explorer on it if we are not going off roading and the wife wants a nicer ride once we arrive at our destination. I just don't like racking up the mileage. Gas mileage difference is miniscule at best when you are talking about a motorhome. The peace of mind is worth it to me. I only go camping/off roading once a month and usually keep to the SE...Georgia, Tenn, Ala, NC, etc. Take it when we visit family during large family gatherings and there is insufficient space for everyone to sleep.....gives me an opportunity to escape the chaos (in laws)
