Why would I select a Blue Ox Alladin or Aventa over a Blue Ox Ambassador? What is the advantage of the sliding (?) arms? I will be towing a vehicle which has a curb weight of 3700 pounds, and my hitch is warranted to carry 4000 pounds. Also, is the Brake Buddy Classic just as good as the Vantage? Thank you for your replies. Am new to this game and want to do things right.

The sliding arms make for easier hooking and unhooking. You can release the pressure if there is some torque on the arms when unhooking. You also don't have to be exactly perfect when lining up to hook up.

wyojay, I started out with a Blue Ox Ambassador and recently upgraded to the Acclaim. Believe me it is a different world of hooking and unhooking as RV Wizard said. Just have to remember to set parking brake on toad when using a driveshaft disconnect (won't go there) like we do. I have learned a lot from the forum as you will also. Take care and RV safe...Jim (N5IIG)
