Demco Aluminator Tow Bar
Okay, we got our "new to us" 2003 Winnebago 34.5 ft with two slides last summer. Hubby retired mid December. Bought 2009 Chevy HHR last month after verifying it can be towed four down.
We have shopped around for baseplate, tow bar, and braking systems.
We were decided on a Blue Ox baseplate, Demco Excalibar self stowing tow bar, and Unified Tow Brake system. Decisions made after much researching as we could, reading on here, and, of course, price.
Just phoned the dealer/installer to make an appointment and they offered us $250 less for the in store demo Demco Aluminator tow bar. We said yes, but now am wondering if that was a good choice.
The Excalibar is steel and rated for 10,000 pounds, the Aluminator is aluminum and rated for 6500 pounds. the HHR curb weight is 3208 pounds, GVRW is 4173.
Sorry for being so long winded about this, but I am hoping for some reassurance that the weight rating will be okay for the aluminum tow bar to the car.
Thanks for your help.
