1) What connections are on the back of the Sky Deck MH?

2) Is there a hitch and what size?

The easiest thing would be to rent a tow dolly from U-Haul. Hook up the trailer and ride the front tires up onto the dolly and then lock it down.

If you want to tow "Four-Down" or as a "Toad" (i.e. no trailer....all four Jeep tires on the road), that gets a little more complicated. I would sugguest you call a local RV shop to install the proper gear on both the MH and the Jeep.

Hopefully the Jeep is a manual transmission! An automatic might complicate things.

Check the Camping World web site for what things are available. The Motor Home Magazine website has a really good towing section.

A dolly would be easiest, but A roadmaster or similiar tow set up is a breeze to use, and can be quickly connected and disconnected as needed. The lighting has to be wired of course, if you don't aready have that done, but to save time you can get the magnetic lights that will plug into the motorhome end, and ride on the roof of the jeep near the back. I would consider a hitch installer who could knock out the whole job in one day, lighting and all.
