Lift kits are not a problem. Many off-roaders tow their Wranglers with lift kits and larger tires all over.
I have 1 1997 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) that originally had a TeraFlex 4" lift with 33" tires and towed it all over the Western US. Later I switched to 35" tires. It now has become even more extreme with a Rubicon Express Long Arm lift and it still tows with no problems. It is probably over 5.5" of lift now (with 1.25" body lift) and 35" tires.
Actually towing a lifted Jeep behind a gas Class A (Southwind) makes the tow bar drop much more reasonable. As it stands right now I use a 2" rise for the tow bar. DP would need a significant rise.
With a lift kit you worry less about body and windshield damage from rocks thrown by the RV.
You will be pleasantly surprised how well a lifted coil spring Wrangler handles. On the older leaf spring Jeeps a lift could make the vehicle quite squirrely.
BTW: most lift companies are recommending a SYE/CV driveline for lifts over 2-3 inches.
