Hi from Gilbert Arizona

Need to spend some time reading the forums so I thought I would write and say hi.

Just sold our F-450 and Keystone Avalanche 340th 5th Wheel and are picking up our first motorhome: Thor Palazzo 36.1

Looking forward to getting out on the road with it and my family.

Need to figure out what will work best for us transporting our Jeep Wrangler, flat tow or trailer. Trade offs either way for us.

Matthew

Welcome!

We tow our jeep 4 down. Jeeps tow 4 down so easily hard to not to do so. The folks that use a trailer are those very heavily modified or do extreme off roading and want to be able to get the jeep home if something is broken. For this latter, one could usually rent a uhaul car trailer if needed.

Towing is easier. A wrangler tow bar should be easy to install. Hopefully the jeep is a towable model.
