jgorm My guess is that the PO used a tow bar in reverse so that the bar would stay attached to the jeep instead of the motorhome. In theory it would work if you had a strong attachment for the tow bar on the motorhome bumper, but my motorhome bumper is fiberglass and the hitch is WAY stronger. I wouldn't consider running it backwards.

Redrider94 I would not, your tow bar needs to be attached at two (2) points on your jeep to track proper with the tow vehicle and to provide a safe hook up between the two vehicles. The PO may have used the receiver that's on there now for a winch or to spot a trailer. Be safe and tow it correct, not real sure your insurance would pay a claim with out having the proper tow equipment in case something were to happen!!

There are lots of great towbars systems to choose from.
Do you think I can mount a tow bar system into the current hitch that's on the front of the Jeep? Anyone?

Flat Pull Behind - Hitch Help

Hello,

I just bought this Jeep and was told that the prior owner had flat towed it. It was a screamin' deal because I bartered it down pretty far so I didn't focus too much on the front bumper configuration. However, one of the key reasons I bought this is to pull behind my class-c RV.

Can some of you that have set up your Jeep for towing please look at the picture and let me know if I can use the current configuration to pull this behind my RV? I'd appreciate any information that you can share.

Thanks,
Jason
