Demco Excali-Bar II towbar ???

Thinking about the Demco Excali-Bar II to tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Any opinion on the Demco Excali-Bar II ?

Ruling out the Blue Ox & was looking at Roadmaster & now just looking at the Demco. Looking for ease of use along with dependable & safety.

I've used a Demco tow bar for over 10 years and 4 different toads. Over the 10+ years I have taken back to the dealer twice for service (basic maintenance) and been very pleased with the results. It connects quickly and never leaves me feeling my toad is at risk.

Same for me, have used a Demco Excalibar for over 10 years with no problems at all. Did my own maintenance on it which was minimal. Replaced it with a new style one 3 years ago cuz I liked the way the bars latch better on the new style. Still great quality, mine is the 10k lb bar.

i just bought mine from amazon at d$539 it was a open box that was missing part and part was repacked in and works great and i have a bad back and its kinda heavy so i leave it hooked to coach with a locked pin. i like the way you can turn upside down and get different heights for which car or truck you have.. i also like the ease of hookup to base plates.. i had my son install the demco base plates on my '11 avy and took him about two hrs as i had a bull bar and 4 lights wired in..i use a brake buddy that i got off ebay and tested perfect for $300.
