Yes, a 2018 Forest River Forester Motorhome on the Ford E-450 series chassis with a V10 engine should be capable of towing about 7,500 lbs. But I suggest you verify this with your vehicle specific owners manual and/or the vehicle tags installed by the OEM.

To safely flat tow a 2020 Jeep Gladiator you will need five basic components, a base plate kit, tow bar, wiring for indicator lights, safety cables and a supplemental braking system.

- Base Plate Kit, etrailer Invisible Base Plate Kit, # e98948 (fits models with factory plastic bumper - excluding Rubicon and Mojave)
- Tow Bar, etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar, # e34ZR (includes needed safety cables)
- Wiring, Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles, # RM-152-1676-7
- Braking System, Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO, # SM99251 along with the stop light switch, # RM-751497

Please consult your owners manual for any other manufacturer requirements/recommendations for flat towing your Gladiator. You may also need a high-low adapter. I have included a help article that goes over how to measure for this.
