What Base Plate Do I Need to Flat-tow My 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk With My Motorhome


I am purchasing a motorhome that I will want to pull my 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk behind. What do I need to use to tow my Jeep Cherokee.


Expert Reply:

The base plate I recommend for your 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521451-5. I recommend this Roadmaster base plate because the Direct-Connect option makes it very easy to connect your tow bar to the base plate.

You will also need a tow bar to link your motorhome to your Jeep Cherokee. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520. I recommend the Falcon 2 because it is telescopic inner arms that make hookup quick and easy.

I recommend the Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System - Proportional # BLU37TR, because it is a portable system that can move from vehicle to vehicle easily.

The other components of flat-towing I recommend:

Tow bar wiring - Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - 7-Wire to 6-Wire Straight Cord # RM-152-98146-7

Safety cables - RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000 lbs # RM-643

You may also need a high-low adapter, like the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW, 400 lbs TW # RM-048-4. You will want to be within 3" "Safe Zone" of being level. I have included a link to an article that will show you how to pick the best high-low adapter for your setup.

As always, you should consult your owner's manual for restrictions and steps you should take to flat-tow your 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk.
