Another towing question?

Is any towing a Jeep Wrangler 4-door with a 32 ft class C.
I am interested in how well it tows 4 down. Does the motor have enough power, especially going up hill?

Please I dont want opions from people towing with other vehicles.

I suggest you list the make and model of your vehicle including the engine size, horsepower and final drive gear ratio. By doing this you'll get some real-time info.

Just as a reference, many years ago I had a class C built on a Ford E350 chassis with a 460 CID engine. I had a 4.10 final drive. I pulled a 7,000 lb enclosed trailer with relative ease. Yes, it slowed down on steep hills but that was to be expected.

Final drive ratio???? If it's a 3.73 it will work but much better with a 4.10

Can't comment of how well Wrangler 4-door tows four down but concerning the coach as long as you care not exceeding the weight limitations you should be fine anywhere in North America on improved roads (paved). Higher elevations will slow you down and you won't win the race to the top of Pikes Peak.

Keep the engine RPM high, 3500+, during long climbs which will increase the flow rate of coolant and oil to help keep engine/transmission temps under control. Down shift early on the down hill side rather braking later.
