jeep tow bar

I currently have a roadmaster tow bar on my jeep tow vehicle. I was
wondering if I could attach this tow bar to the back of my motorhome
instead of the front of the jeep? any advantages or disadvantages to
the back of the motorhome instead of the front of the jeep?

has anyone switched to the back of the motorhome? I would think it
would be better on the back of the motorhome as u would not need to
remove the tow bar while u are parked at the rv park? pros and cons?

all comments are appreciated.

I used to have a Jeep attached tow bar. Either left it folded on the jeep or removed it. Both a pain, with removal the bigger pain. Then bought a motorhome attached tow bar. Most definitely much better. Disconnect it, stow it on the motorhome, drive the clean jeep away.

We have a blue ox bar that stays with motor home. It is convenient and you cannot even tell we have tow attachments when driving the Jeep or Suburban. Yes , we have attachment points on 2 vehicles and one tow bar.

You would need to buy a whole different towbar

jeep tow bar

My Wrangler is proud to display the finest, strongest front bumper ever made. Why take it off?

Looks like it cuts into your ground clearance a bit? Does it ever bang when you're off road?

Nope. But it can take it.
