In part one I discussed the towability of the Jeep making it one of the most preferred vehicles to drag along behind a motorhome.
Now on to the other reasons a Jeep is such a gem of a vehicle for the RVer who drives a motorhome. While it isn’t the most fuel efficient, it typically is far better than what a motorhome delivers in mileage. I always point out to those asking about which is better a trailer/5er or a motorhome that with the motorhome they can tow a high mileage comfortable riding vehicle to use. Whereas they would be driving for pleasure trips the same stiff riding, fuel guzzling and hard to maneuver pickup truck when they aren’t towing their home on wheels.
While you will see a variety of vehicles being towed behind motorhomes, probably one of the most popular are Jeeps. Why?
While they aren’t necessarily the most comfortable, cheapest to buy, most reliable or economical to drive they are probably the easiest to “setup” to be flat towed. It is also due to the fact that, more and more of the newer vehicles on the road today can’t be flat towed. And if they can they often require extensive and/or expense modifications to do so. Here in lies the strength for Jeeps being so popular a choice.
