Karen, regardless of what you may have read I'm not sure this a Jeep problem.
I have a Jeep Cherokee that I have towed for 10,000 + miles, at one point at 70 mph, and have never had a problem with it not tracking just fine behind the coach. I see a lot of Cherokees being towed, so if the 'death wobble' that affected many Wranglers was as prevalent on the Cherokees, I think we would be hearing more complaints.
Now a couple of caveats; I did have the alignment checked prior to taking delivery of the Jeep (it was fine, no adjustment necessary). I also self installed the towing brackets. This was the first vehicle I had installed the two individual tab type brackets to, all my others were one piece baseplates, so I made sure they were installed correctly, and geometrically in line with the tow bar.
What I mean by that is, with the Jeep connected to the coach tow bar, I measured the distance from the center line of each tab to the center line of my tow bar. I then took it for a trial drive to make sure it was tracking correctly. This was all done prior to reinstalling the fascia, which is not fun to remove or reinstall.
So here are my suggestions.
1. Have the alignment on the Jeep checked
2. Check the geometry of the tow bar tabs on the Jeep to the tow bar on the coach.
If those two steps check out then there may in fact be something wrong with your particular Cherokee.
In any event I hope everything works out to your satisfaction.
