I'm shopping for a tow bar. Like to get some feed back on Blue OX or Towmaster.

I see a Blue OX for $400 on Ebay. Brand new. The cheapest Towmaster I've seen is around $700 new.

Input ??

Many years with the Ox and never a problem. I would buy the Ox again.

I have a Blue Ox Avanta II 10k lb rated tow bar which has a lifetime warranty. I especially like their base plates over the competitors. I have installed many and these are just my drathers and I have never had a problem.

I'm not that familiar with Towmaster, but I'm happy with our Blue Ox. Blue Ox has a reputation for standing behind their products.
