    Hi bdichristina, I love the renovation and your photos are a great help. Did you buy a new mattress for your camper? have you had custom cushions made?

    Thanks bdi, i am playing with the camper in its parking space. I bought a WD hitch with sway control and am having a brake controller installed next week. Still confused about whether i need to buy a special hook up for installing the controller at the under the dash. Lerning something new each day, having fun learning. I hooked up a 50 watt solar panel and charged up the battery and that felt great. Making a sort of punch list as i go along, because i can just see me leaving some important thing hooked up as i try to drive away tethered to something!

    Kit; I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you on this post. I just saw your note tonight and realized I had NOT read this one. I'm sure you have gone and are back already so you must have gotten an education the hard way. Still, if you want to hear what we do when pulling our "Happy Place II", feel free to call. Just send us a private message and I'll reply with our phone number. Bob

    Hey BDI, if you have a list of "do this first" when setting out, can you share it with me. I'm going to do a dry run this weekend, towing to Vallecito Lake in Colorado. Not far from home, about 45 miles, no mountain passes. The campground has water, so I'm wondering if I should wait to fill er up till I get there. And a suggested "punch" list for camping without electric hook up. Cooler will have cold food instead of refrigerater. I just want to play.

    I didn't use a weight distribution hitch when I towed with the Cherokee. In fact, I used a straight ball (without a drop), in the hitch. Read my post about 13" vs 14" tires: https://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f7...res-12701.html , which explains that the trailer rides level with the Jeep. Your WJ will ride about 1.5" higher than ours if it has a the factory towing package. I will say however, that at 65 mph, she tended to sway a bit when a 18-wheeler would pass. This doesn't happen with the Suburban (longer wheel-base).

    Just be careful to balance out the load when you head out, dividing anything you carry between the front and the rear. Keep anything heavy you might pack over the axles. And if you pack the back of the Jeep, remember that also adds to the weight. Here is a site with Jeep towing info I found helpful: Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ - Trailer towing

    Thanks so much for all your info. I'm gonna tow my t1850 with my 2003 jeep grand cherokee, V8 so I have been learning about way more than I expected. Did you have a weight distribution hitch for the cherokee, when you towed using it last year?

    Last summer we towed with our Jeep Grand Cherokee (V-six), and it did just fine. With the overdrive off and in 4-wheel drive, we were able to take some pretty steep hills in stride. We added another tow vehicle this year because we are currently rebuilding a larger Sunny (T-2553). This summer we've been towing with our Chevy Suburban 1500 (V-eight). Obviously, the 1750 is no challenge for this freight train and you sometimes forget she's back there.

    What do you tow your trailer with?
