Thanks everyone! I just picked up a lightly used Roadmaster blackhawk 2 and storage bag for $235. I'll order the rest through etrailer.

You may need a drop down receiver. My Bounder hitch is 22" high and I use a 10" drop down receiver.

Gorgeous!! Congrats and enjoy! We use an 8" drop receiver, Bounder to Jeep Wrangler. If your Jeep is lifted or has huge tires, you may not need such a long drop receiver.

When you drive a Fleetwood gasser, you learn the meaning of the phrase "high-tailing it."

Thanks for the tip Sarah, I will have to measure up my Jeep, it has a 3 inch lift and 33 inch tires.

Nice!

It may be better to "high tail it" versus "dragging it's tail".... Lol

Great looking rig!!

I have aftermarket bumper on the Jeep and tow from brackets there - no need for a base plate. With your lift and tires may need zero to small receiver drop methinks. On my PA with 5" lift and 33's need no drop. Suggest to consider to install ReadyBrake for stopping.
