Tow bars plates and wire harnesses are vehicle specific and when you change vehicle you have to buy more parts.
I went with a KarKaddy SS got a great deal from PPLMotorhomes, 5 minutes to load up and tied down after the first time which took 15 minutes because I was reading the instructions on the fender.
2600 Miles on the first trip and it was Perfect, no regrets and looking forward to the next trip.
I would agree. We used a dolly to tow our Buick over 25,000 miles and never had a problem. Later we switched to towing a Jeep 4 down. I would have continued to use the dolly but it isn't an option for towing a 4wd Jeep. We still have the dolly and will probably switch back to towing another Buick at some time.
Since you're new to the game the dolly would be the less expensive introduction. It will also allow you to tow a number of different cars without additional expense. Should you decide you don't like the RV lifestyle or prefer not to tow in the future you won't have invested over $10,000.00 in a depreciating asset.
In addition to the purchase price of the Jeep and the towing hardware there's the contimued expense of insurance, maintenance and license. If you plan to replace the Toyota with the Jeep it's a wash, but if you plan to keep both it's added expense.
