It looks like you have a pretty good parts list together and all of the parts you mentioned are compatible and will work perfectly on your Jeep but there are a few things missing.

Starting with what you do have the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 will fit your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as long as it has the standard bumper with no winch or guard.

This will work perfectly with the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain # RM-676, and since it includes safety cables you will not need to purchase them separately.

Moving on to the tow bar cover # RM-055-3 will fit the tow bar perfectly.

The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56200 will give you a 4-way connector to plug in to the rear of the motorhome and will plug into the factory connectors on your Jeep.

Lastly the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR is a great choice for a supplemental braking system that is very easy to use and install, and since it is completely removed when you are done flat towing it can be used in multiple vehicles if needed.

Now for the components missing there is just two.

The first is if your 2002 Tiffin Allegro Diesel Bus does not have a 4-way connector on the rear you will need a 7-way to 4-way adapter # HM47365.

Next is to install the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR in your Jeep you will also need the 12v outlet kit # RM-9332.

Lastly you may need a high-low adapter to level the tow bar to your Allegro, so I have included a link to a helpful article on how to measure for the correct adapter, and a link to all of our high-low adapters for you to take a look at.

I included installation videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
