Practicing for my retirement a little early

Finally took the plunge and bought a 2018 ventana LE NEWMAR. love love this coach so beautiful inside. I am 14 years from retirement but what the heck y should I have to wait soooo long to enjoy the RV LIFE.. I Might be the only PAKISTANI AMERICAN who drives a big ass RV....lol. The only problem is I canít tow my FERRARI with this rig so I guess I will be buying a JEEP soon.

Congrats on the new coach. We have a 2017 LE and they are very nice. Hope you have great travels and be sure to weigh it yourself to get correct GCWR and tire pressure needs.

Oh yes, I quite understand. I can't find a tow bar for my Veyron and am forced to tow the 2016 Austin Martin instead.

Well, if practice makes perfect, you should be doing pretty good in 14 years.

I wanted to buy an RV for a long time but always backed out since i run my own business and have little time. However i will be taking short weekend getaways and enjoying my part time RV life. Just went out to a camp ground last week and it was a blast...wife and kids loved it..i am really excitied and cant wait to take a long 2 week trip but first i must learn to master this beast and practice towing my new jeep i just purchased as a toad. I have installed the roadmaster night hawk tow bar with airforce air braking system. Does anyone know what i need to do to the jeep before i pull it? I heard jeeps were the easiest to tow and didnt require disconnecting the drive shaf.i hate reading manuals, if anyone knows what i need to do to my 2017 jeep wrangler JK I would appreciate the input.

There should be specific instructions in your Jeep's manual for 'recreational towing behind a motorhome'. Copy those instructions and keep them with you as you travel. Follow instructions to the letter. Go to a Jeep dealer and ask them if you can't find it in your manual.
Congrats and enjoy.
