I had used a Blue Ox product similar to the protect a tow. It also was installed under the tow bar. It was alright and protected my tow vehicle.
I found that Roadmaster makes the Tow Defender. It connects to the tow bar not the coach so it can be used on a class C. For me it connects easier and when I disconnect it and it rolls up to the tow bar for easy storage. It also sits on top of the tow bar. For me I like it much better, and it protects the tow vehicle.
On my MH the Protect-A-Tow I bolts are attached to the body and the receive hitch is mounted under the body. I have had it this way for 5 years with no problem until this spring. I have a Blue Ox tow bar and the support bar on the Protect-A-Tow lifted up and rested on top of one of the locking arms. When I pulled into a rest area one of the arms on the tow bar retracted causing the toad to pull to the right. I shortened the center loop that the support bar goes through. When it happened I was driving in strong wind and that may have caused the bar to lift.
