Hello fellow rv'ers.

Hello Fellow RVers, I'm Jim and I am a rookie in the RV business. However, I did extensive research and last year I bought a used 2011 Coachmen Concord 301SS, 32'. My son's RV friends helped me get through the winterization and de-winterization process, among other things, and I think I am now ready to roll. One of the capabilities I would like to acquire more info on is towing a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport behind the RV. What's a good tow-bar, wiring harness, hitch, brake system, etc? I visited a friend in Maine and looked at his rig and Jeep towing apparatuses and I have a general idea what it is supposed to look like. Any info you can provide such as a specific forum or other website, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi & .

Your best bet for researching tow bar information is to search the threads in the Toads & Motorhome Related Towing Forum. Tow set ups have been extensively discussed there & you'll find a lot of opinions on which are best. Just open the Forum & over on the right side, choose Search This Forum & type in tow bars or braking systems.

Hi Jim! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the gang!

I highly recommend the ReadyBrute Elite towbars with built-in ReadyBrake from NSA RV Products. It is rugged (8000 lb. rating), simple to install, easy to use, and will save you HUNDREDS of dollars over any other out there that I am aware of!

BTW, you will get much better results on your questions if you post them over in the appropriate areas of the forum. In this case, at the top click on "RV Forums" , then click on "toads and MH Towing". Maybe one of the Moderators will move this post over there for you!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
