Many of us tow Jeep Wranglers behind our motorhomes. To be safe, you need to check the towing specifications listed in your Georgetown chassis owner's manual, as well as the rating of the hitch. According to Jeep, a base 2014 Wrangler Unlimited 4 door weighs 4231 pounds. You didn't specify a model year for the Jeep, but the weight has remained about the same since it was introduced in 2007.

Aside from a suitable hitch on the motorhome, you will also need a tow bar, baseplate (or a new Jeep front bumper that accepts a tow bar), and a braking system for the Jeep. I use an NSA ReadyBrute tow bar with a built-in surge brake, and a Blue Ox baseplate for towing my Jeep Wrangler 2 door. There are many different tow products to choose from, but this works well for me. You will also need to wire the turn signal and brake lights on the Jeep for towing. There are several options available for the lights such as connecting the existing bulbs, adding new bulbs to the tail lights, or even using add on lights.

Or, on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/2007-2014-Wran.../dp/B009VGYSPW

Is there anything not sold on Amazon?

I am in the process of rigging my 2015 Rubicon Hard Rock to tow behind our 2015 377TS as we speak. I bought the ready break brute elite from Amazon for $700 (a great deal) and the Blue Ox tow plate plus the Mopar wiring harness. I also bought the Gen Y drop hitch to get the tow bar level with the jeep and motorhome. Love the Gen Y because it has four 2 inch slots for moving the hitch ball or other attachements t different heights. You can also hook more than one thing to the motorhome hitch with it for example, hook up the toad plus a bike rack.

It sounds like you have the same towing setup that I use, except that I purchased a Roadmaster drop receiver that also holds my bike rack. The Blue Ox baseplate has two studs in the center of the bar for attaching a large trailer lighting socket. I made an aluminum plate for the front of the Blue Ox baseplate to attach the Ready Brake cable and a smaller size lighting socket. It worked better than drilling the Jeep bumper to install the brake cable:

I like that idea. I have been trying to decide how to mount the brake cable on the hard rock bumper but this sounds like a better idea. Thanks.
