We are considering FLAT towing the Jeep. We wouldn't be using a trailer.We check into towing our Jeep behind a rented RV for a trip out West. Absolutely no one will rent a RV and allow the Jeep to be towed. All the rental places we contacted said the Jeep and trailer were to heavy. We are going to trailer the Jeep behind our truck and stay in motels.
How did you get that information about the insurance? Was it from RV Share, or your insurance company? I've spoken to numerous owners that are ok with it. But I want to know for sure what the insurance company would say.We are actually looking at renting through RVshare.com. It's a private owner renting deal, similar to air bnb or Turo. We are looking at a few class A RVs or motorhomes. The owners that I have spoken to so far have no issues with towing.
We looked into RVshare. The insurance company excluded towing. Double check. You don’t want to be buying a Motor Coach.
RV Shares insurance does not cover towing. Read the FAQ section. It clearly states they do not cover the RV if it is towing something. I thought we had run into owners who didn’t want anyone towing with their RV.How did you get that information about the insurance? Was it from RV Share, or your insurance company?

I'm just finishing up getting my JLUR tow ready. RVI brake unit $1200, Mopar tow light harness $350, RockHard Alum bumper $1400, LOD frame tie in brackets $100, Custom towbar lug plates $100. Miscellaneous tools and materials ~ $200 for self-install. So ~ $3500 and I did all the labor. Not far off your $5k estimate.I spent almost $5,000 to fully equip my 2018 JL Rubi for flat towing. The upside is that I can now tow it behind anything that has a two inch receiver hitch and a 7 pin connector. My brake package goes with the jeep and is wirelessly connected to the tow vehical with a slap on the dash transmitter in the tow vehical that takes about 1 minute to connect.
I have towed my JL about 4400 miles since march of this year (so far). Worth it to me. A small side note: my rubi odometer does not register the toad miles. They are free (warranty is mileage restricted) so I can 4 wheel in Arizona and then 4 wheel in Maine. The between mileage is free.
