We have everything you will need to flat tow your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited behind your Class C motorhome.

First things first you will need to add a base plate kit. I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 which are a confirmed fit as long as your Jeep has the factory plastic or steel bumper. This kit has removeable arms so when you are not flat towing the base plate kit will blend in to the front of your vehicle.

Next you will need a compatible tow bar. I recommend going with the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522 as it has a 6000lb weight capacity which is perfect for Jeeps like yours, and the non-binding arms make it very easy to unhook the tow bar from your Jeep even when you are parked on un-even ground.

In addition to the above components you will need safety cables, and tow bar wiring which is all found in the RoadMaster Falcon 2 and Falcon All-Terrain Combo Towing Kit with Straight Wiring # RM-9243-1. Not only does this include the needed safety cables, and 6-way connector, wiring, and diodes to allow your motorhome to power the lights on your Jeep, it also includes a case to store the tow bar, and locks to keep the tow bar secured to your vehicle.

Moving on most states require you to have a supplemental braking system installed but even if it is not required it is a really good idea as it keeps your motorhome brakes from having to stop the weight of your Jeep each time you come to a stop allowing for less wear and tear on your motorhome, but more importantly better stopping power which can be crucial in emergency braking scenarios. I recommend going with the Blue Ox Patriot Braking System # BLU37TR as it is very easy to install, and since it gets completely removed from your vehicle when you are done flat towing it can be used in multiple vehicles if needed. You will also need to a the 12v outlet kit # RM-9332 to power the system.

Lastly you will likely need a high-low adapter to level your tow bar to your tow vehicle so I have included a link to a help article that goes over how to measure for the correct adapter, and a link to all of our high-low adapters for you to take a look at.

It is always a good idea to check the recreational towing section of your owner's manual for any flat towing restrictions, and for any special steps required to make your vehicle ready to be flat towed.

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