I've been towing a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited (soon to move the base plate to the 2012 Wrangler Unlimited) without incident for two years.

We also have a gasser, 2011 Coachmen Encounter with a 5K hitch. No problem tugging the Jeep along behind us.

We use the BlueOx base plate and tow bar and the BlueOx brake system as well. Patroit I believe is the name of their brake system.

Congrats on your new rig and Jeep.

[Edit: Should have added that the base plate when installed on the wrangler puts the tow height about 5" below the hitch height of the coach meaning that I had to buy a 4" drop hitch to level out the two. You want your tow bar to be level when hooked up.]
