First tow.

Well after several years of working full time and living full time in a motor home we are finally towing our Cherokee. In the past we would rent a car if we needed one when we were traveling or my wife would follow in one of the cars.

We just finished our shake down cruise.
We're using the Ready Brake Elite tow bar and integral brake system with wireless Tow Mate light bar. Everything worked great. Price was great too, more money for gas.
Thanks to all of the folks who replied to my posts over the last few months asking questions about towing.
Camp happy.

Several trips we did this year really pointed out the need to finally spend the money and start towing a vehicle. Our prior motor home was smaller and more maneuverable then this one. We were in Cape May NJ which has a lot of small streets and really had a hard time getting around. Plus we now have slides and jacks so there is more work to do to setup and break camp.
I think towing will be a good thing.
