Newbie to Class A motorhome.

I'm new to the class A motorhome RVing world, I recently purchase a 1992 Coachmen Royal 360RD, with 66000 miles on it. It seems to be in very good condition over all and appears to only need some TLC. I plan to pull a 2012 Jeep Liberty behind it. What is the best towing set up for this, and should I take both vehicles to a dealer to have the tow set up installed?

Thank you all in advance for your assistance and advice.

When we set up our MH for towing we went with the Blue Ox adventa tow bar and baseplate with the blue ox light system. We also had the air force one installed (this was for a DP). They all work great so far. Only towed for about 1400 miles and have been pleased with the set up.

There are many different set ups and I am sure others will have excellent results with their systems. Best of luck.

Baseplate installs on Jeeps are pretty easy to do yourself. I would save the $$$ and go that route.

Blue Ox Baseplates come with detailed instructions, including pictures, for your make and model so I prefer them.

As far as tow bars go, I have used 3 different types and the ready brute tow-bar is the best because it doesn't bind and you can release the toad from an position. However they all do the job. The Ready brute barking system is the most economical and if you like the idea of a surge brake than you can have a perfect system.

As mentioned earlier if you have a Diesel than I suggest the Air Force One, if you have a gas there are a bunch of systems out there that both have pros and cons.
