I think so. It makes disconnecting much easier if the terrain is a bit off level or the toad is at a slight angle to the coach, as is often the case when disconnecting at a campground. We had an older Falcon 5250 without the All Terrain feature and it was a pain at times. We now have a Blue Ox Aventa LX and it's a dream by comparison. I believe the All Terrain would be just as good.

Is there any serious offroading involved? All of the commercial towbar mount points are below the front bumper. Easily damaged if you use the Wrangler for extreme trail riding.

Since I go offroad I had special knuckles for the tow bar to attach it to the aftermarket bumper (1/8th inch wall, square tubing) on my Wrangler. This bumper has integral d-ring mounts on the front and either has the d-rings (shackles) mounted or the tow bar.

Of course any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well as any advice you all might have.
