RV Towing Jeep

I just got an RV and look forward to taking it on the offroad trips. The only issue now is figuring out how to tow my jeep. Does anyone know the best way to tow a Jeep behind an motorhome? I have warn rockcrawler front bumper if that helps. I do not want to have to use a tow dolly.

Thanks,

Tim

I used Roadmaster XL removeable brackets and a cheapo Roadmaster tracker towbar. A fellow Jeeper gave me the frame mounts because they came with his Jeep and he did not need them. Cheapy magnetic towlights I stick on top of the rear bumper. I do not like how the towbar mount part that stays on the Jeep hangs down below the front bumper. But, I do not have to have a very large riser to keep the towbar level. First click forward on the ign. switch, TC in nuetral, tranny in park or 5th gear. You are good to go.

I'd flat tow if I'm not worried about breaking anything. I went over the bumper with my base plate to keep from bending anything hanging below the bumper:



I'll have to modify the plate if I want to add a winch and I've limited my bumper choices. I also had to add a 10" receiver lift to level my tow bar. I run magnetic lights on the rear bumper.

I'd suggest a Ready Brake, Ready Brute all terrain tow bar with built in surge brakes. Best deal out there, simple, and easy to install:
