But this is probably the only RV we'll ever have and we keep it up real nice. So what the heck. It beats payments on a newer model.
Good point! If my RV had slides I would go for it as we'll but not having both, means ill be upgrading at some point.

I picked up a couple of these at Kmart. Around $150.00 each. OK so far.

Rain slick roads along with stop sign at a hill and a curve ...the Honda did very well against king cab pickup on right front. It peeled everything off the car in front of the baseplate and spun us around at least a time and a half. I pulled of all the dangling pieces, drove it back to the rv park, and towed it 340 miles home. The baseplate was solid the most solid part of the front of the car and took part of the side impact. It was 13 yr old, 195k on the odometer plus 55k towed miles. We're replacing it with a 2005 Odyssey ...great vehicle for hauling my recumbent bicycles on the road, and very reliable too.

Bought a low mile 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4X4 for toad. Towing 4 down is so much easier to hook up than tow dolly. Also, as an added benefit, I can haul my Honda Silverwing in the bed of the pickup too. Next will be a base plate for the Roadmaster tow bar. Oh well, it is always something.

Scooter,

Look at the Demco baseplate. It shows almost nothing in front. The Roadmaster baseplate has a ton of metal showing by comparison. Also, the Demco has no assembly required.

Blue Ox baseplate is also virtually all hidden, and I have seen adaptors to use Roadmaster towbar on one.

Roadmaster base plate is invisible on our Jeep Liberty? OK, wait, to be invisible you have to unhook the base plate first (takes all of about 30 seconds). But, after that, you'd never know it was a toad? Not to derail the thread.....we just purchased throw rugs including a runner for the kitchen on line. We were a little worried about site unseen purchasing, but when they arrived they were better than all the flooring stores we had shopped in.

Got steer-safe installed at a FMCA rally this past weekend.
DH really likes how the MH handles now, so much so, he pulled over on the
I-10 and had me drive for the first time. Attendees at the rally told us it was well worth the money and that they have them on their MH.
