Hitch question

Ok, I have a fleetwood providence 40X I want to hitch a blue ox to the hitch, do I use a "L" shape step down hitch coming off the RV or a straight hitch coming off the RV?

Thanks

Tom

If you talking about using a tow bar, it should be fairly close to parallel with the ground. You may need a drop down hitch so that your tow bar is level.

RVlunin is correct, you want to keep your tow bar as close to level between your RV and the towed vehicle as possible. So it really matters where the tow bar mounting plate is located on your toad, and the difference in height from the ground that your tow bar connection points are with the toad and RV. I believe most tow bars manufacturers recommend no more that a 4" difference in height from one end of the tow bar to the other end. The info that comes with the tow bar should confirm this, or you can find it on the manufacturers website.
