Is the draw tite front mounted hitch 65009 the right hitch and how does it hook to a motor home. I am looking for a hitch to put on my jeep and tow it behind my motor home
asked by: Michael W
For towing your 1998 Jeep Cherokee behind your motor home you would want Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, part # 1418-1.
The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65009, is the correct front mount hitch for your Jeep, but it would not be the correct attachment point for towing your Jeep with your motor home. You would want to use a base plate kit like I recommended above.
You will also need the following to complete your tow setup:
RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar with 6-Wire Electric Cord, part # RM-576
For a permanent lighting solution you would want a Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, part # RM-154
For a temporary lighting solution you would want a Magnetic Towing Light Kit, 20 ft. Long Cord, part # C-ATL20A
I attached a link on tow bar lighting below for you to check out also.
You may also need a supplemental braking system for your towed vehicle, if so, I would recommend you get a Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System, part # RM-9400.
Some states require a supplemental braking system in towed vehicles, you should check your local laws and regulations for that, as well as any other state you plan on towing your Jeep through.
