What is the best towing setup for class B

I'm seriously considering a Forest River Solera or a Navion IQ. And I want to tow a jeep wrangler.

The question in the title is confusing...both of these models are Class C's with the Sprinter Cab/Chassis.
Solera Class C Motorhomes by Forest River
and
Itasca Motorhomes - 2014 Navion & Navion IQ

While they only have a 90ish inch exterior width (over 10 inches narrower than the typical E-Series Class C), they are still considered Class C's.

Anyway...both have about 4,000lb between the GVWR and the GCWR, so towing a Jeep should work. But these RV's are not like a Big ol' Triton V10 powered Class C's that fill American Highways . The E-Series Class C's often have a 18,000-22,000lb GCWR (E350-E450 models) vs. the 15,000lb limit of the Sprinter based unit.

The Sprinter is a nice reliable chassis, but it is obviously smaller and is not going to be able do the same things as the bigger rigs.

Safe travels

Their class C? The sales lady was calling them class B.

Knowledge is power. Check out what the industry sanctioning body says:
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association: RV Types & Prices

Plus both of these factory websites call their rigs Class C's.

A Class B is usually called a van conversion.

Best of luck on your search.

I guess it doesn't matter what it is , Class B or C as long as you like it and it will tow the Jeep !
