Good find. I bought an Aladdin off Craigslist for $150. It also came with a 6 pole umbilical and emergency cables. It was an older one with the aluminum hitch connector and yoke. decided I didn't want to risk any failures (as seen on here and other RV sites) of the cast aluminum yoke. I replaced the hitch connector and yoke with the steel versions, replaced all the nylon washers and replaced the bolts for the hitch point adapters. All of that was replaced for less than $100.

I waited quite a while before I came across it. Do be patient!

Last year on EBAY I bought a Roadmaster baseplate for my Honda. Included the 4 strand wire, and two diodes.
My winning bid was .99 cents!
Cost $28.00 to ship it.
They did not have a reserve price and I was the only bidder!!!!
Sometimes you get lucky!

Recently purchased a 2012 wrangler in order to tow 4 down after towing DW's car on a dolly in the past. Bought a new never mounted Roadmaster Stowmaster for $150.00, a used Brake Buddy for $220.00 and a Rugged Ridge XDH front bumper for $305.00. I mounted the tow bar mounts to the bumper instead of buying $400.00 plus base plates and the Rugged Ridge bumper looks much better than the stock bumper. I spent $675 for items that would retail for about $2300, all on eBay. My brother in law wanted to change the color of his Road King but instead of painting his parts, he spent a year buying each paint part on eBay. He spent less than $500 on the complete paint set buying it one piece at a time. I love eBay. I purchase all the parts for the maintainance dept at work, I have learned to check eBay for a lot of things, I purchased 10 cooling fans for servo motors for less than what one cost from the manufacture. I bought a nos ABB contactor for 99.00 when the new one was $600.00. That's just this week.

I, too, shop on Ebay. I got everything(Towbar, BrakeBuddy, baseplates, breakaway switch) to tow my Wrangler 4 down on Ebay for less than $700.00. Bought my Dinosaur board for my fridge, latches for my basement doors, seals for the storage tank valves and just ordered 20ea. 80# struts for my basement doors ($230.00 delivered to my door). I believe you can find anything you want for your MOHO or TT if you just search for it and, by all means, be patient.
