Cherokee Trailhawk as a Tow Vehicle behind a Motorhome
Our Trailhawk is a very nice SUV. The interior is plush, the controls & convenience features are well thought out. The ride is solid and it has good ground clearance. We bought it used to tow behind our RV. Aside from the usual tow base plate and hookups, this model year Cherokee requires a dealer installed kit to activate the electric steering while under tow. Cherokees newer than 2017 apparently don't need this kit as the factory has resolved the Death Wobble when towing. The kit works as intended but it complicates the towing because the turn signal & braking cable needs a 12 gauge wire to carry RV 12 volts to the Cherokee battery so the steering and braking systems don't drain the Cherokee battery while you are towing the Jeep. All the parts needed to tow (base plate, tow bar, installation labor, electrical hook-up cable, braking system components, and so on) add a few thousand dollars to the cost. Towing a vehicle behind an RV is not for the faint of heart nor is it cheap!
None of this explanation on what we needed for towing has anything to do with Valley View Car Care. They are the team we chose to correct all the other issues our very used car had after bought it. Our local Jeep Dealer did the steering kit install and another 3rd party in Arlington, TX, installed all the towing parts & brake components.
So far, we have been very pleased with the Cherokee's performance and handling. When the time comes to consider another (or newer) tow vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee will be one of the models considered.
