Newmar Bay Star 3308 Towing a Jeep 4 dr

Has anyone with a Newmar Baystar 3308 towed a 4 Dr Jeep. I'm interested how the RV handles towing a 4 Dr Jeep.

If the toad is equipped with auxiliary brakes, I doubt if you'd know it's even back there. 4 down towing is pretty benign, no heavy weight on the receiver, no 'wig-wag' of a badly loaded trailer, etc.

I had a 2010 Safari Simba (34ft) that was on the same 22k Ford chassis and I felt that the RV felt more stable with my 4 door wrangler attached to the rear bumper. The other difference was the initial pull off the line, which of course would be slower, but other than that, I don't think you need to worry.
