Very timely thread. Looks like I'll be going through this process w/i the next week or two. As of right now I think we'll be towing a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I'm anal enough to want my towed vehicle perfectly level.

Yeah, get your tow bar purchase figured out first. Until the base plates are on the Jeep there's no real way to take a height measurement.

Saw you're flying to TX to pick up your rig. MHSRV?

Yes, they are the worlds largest dealer and all that. Any thoughts on them?

Hey Dan, I bought my rig there, and the experience was great. I'd buy another rig from them in a heartbeat. My paperwork and orientation and delivery was jammed into about 3 hrs (my fault, not theres) and they had me ready to drive off the lot. I'm guessing you're going to spend the night in it at their park? I didn't but would have loved it.

I'd remind your salesman that you've gotta be ready to drive the thing cross country when you leave the lot and ask him be sure and check in with the make-ready crew. Probably unnecessary but asking him to touch base with the crew won't hurt a thing. Should be an awesome adventure for you and your grandson. PM me if you have any other questions.

Update-Stock jeep and wheels were marginal and my installer felt that because we were w/I the magic 3 inches no hi-lo was needed. I put some wheels and tires on the jeep and found that I now need a 2 inch lift from the coach receiver. I ran into the same problem others have i.e. the available hi-low receivers wouldn't clear the coach rear cap. Roadmaster agreed to build me a custom hi-low receiver with a longer stinger so I could get 8 1/8 inches between the pin hole on the stinger and the back of the raised receiver. According to the blueprint I received they will be using solid 2 inch stock rather than the hollow stock on their ready made hi-lo receivers.
