It is a super C, Ford F550 with a 6.7 diesel. It is a beast for power. It is only 33.5 feet long so the wheel base should be OK but it is about a foot shorter in wb than the other models. The XG32 is only available in 4x4 so the front axles are different.

It doesn't wander at all when not towing.

I am using a Roadmaster Set-up, Sterling All Terrain Bar, Roadmaster flat tow Kit on the GC, a Brake Buddy 2, and all the safety stuff, lights, cables, etc...

I have pretty grippy Kevlar Tires (trailhawk) and the tire pressure is 35psi as called for from the door sticker.

Is this just what it is, or should I be doing something different.
A few have asked if the tow bar was level, I think it is. One of the pics is slightly up hill, and one is level.

Yes that would be nice if we could get our own thread for the omni/magnitude. They are so different from the rest of the thor line.

That happens in the summers here where it gets 110. So everything runs great, drives great, it just wanders. I will have the two plate on my JL next week and will see what the difference is. I tow the GC for work and the JL for play. I know, sounds weird, but I am not staying in Hotels anymore.
Tire pressure increases in the summer, it does not decrease.

Jeep fixed the Cherokee starting in 2019. I have one. Have to check the camera to know its there behind my Georgetown 30x3.

Jeep wonít say what the fix was but it replaced the need for a switch. I believe they adjusted the steering geometry and bushings.

The GC didnít have as severe an issue and some had no issue at all but you need to do some checking on your year.

The kit Jeep needed for the pre-2019 Cherokees wasnít cheap. I had them include it in mine for free but Iíve never used it because I learned they had fixed it for mine by the time I could get the baseplate for it. The dealership was clueless. It includes a switch and a fuse.

Your tow vehicle isnít the problem. It is the GC steering.

It sounds like there is a constant drag forcing the coach to pull to the left. It sounds like maybe you have not left the steering column unlocked. That would sure do it
