But seriously, the Wrangler can be tops off along the coast, mountains, desert, off road, on road, it's a Swiss army knife. It's like they're made to flat tow too. I love it.

A motor home towing a Jeep is not only the coolest thing to see going down the road, it's a package that screams adventure! You heading some place beautiful and fun, your in a motor home and when you get there you have the perfect vehicle for further examination. A total adventure package.

Have you ever been to the scales with the Jeep on the trailer? How does the FR3 handle the trailer?

Looks like you have some good times with that setup.

So I didn't do a car hauler as I couldn't find anything that could get under 5k lbs. with my JKU and mods I am right at 5k flat towing. Total weight I have about 400 lbs left based on advertised weights for the entire load

I plan on stopping and weighing this next trip

The question ----will it pull it is yes. Being legal is another question....which leads to liability if there is a problem.

The ecoboost Ford taught me it doesn't matter what it can tow->. Payload limits are reached way sooner than the max tow

Inspecting everything for "safety" also means more than just what your towing. You really might want to consider weighing your jeep/trailer. I have a feeling that, combined with whatever you load in the MH and all that you carry on your trailer, you may be well over the GCWR that your unit is built for. Putting excessive weight can cause excessive wear and tear on your coach. Not to mention having to stop in an emergency causes an extra amount of pressure you need to stop the MH (even if you have surge or electric brakes on the trailer). JMHO
