    Tᴏᴡɪɴɢ Qᴜᴇsᴛɪᴏɴ

    So Im selling my toy hauler 5th wheel and putting a 9-1/2 camper on my truck with the intent of towing my lifted 2011 JKRU. Any suggestions or warnings?

    Ill mostly be going a couple hundred miles from home (northern CA) or less... but maybe occasionally as far as Moab or Colorado.

    Id still put the Jeep up on a light weight aluminum trailer verses flat towing it. Just worlds easier maneuvering it around.

    Get a trailer big enough to put the camper and the Jeep on it.

    Depending on the truck you have, you really need to be choosy with your trailer purchase because you can quickly get into class A cdl territory these days and not know it.

    It must be a state to state qualification. Ive talked to the Michigan state police here and as long as I am towing for personal use, my 32 gooseneck does not require one. Ill need to start calling other states before traversing west.

    There are a couple things that can get you into trouble. For example, we use our work trucks as personal vehicles on the weekends, even though its recreational at that moment youd have a hard time explaining that to a trooper If the vehicle is registered commercial. Or they will get cute with the definition of commerce in some states depending on the use of the towed vehicle on arrival.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
