tow bars

I am just starting to look at towing 4 down. I have seen tow bars that slip into the mh receiver hitch and some that hook to a 2" ball from the receiver hitch. Is one better over the other.

Years ago when I towed 4 down I used a ball hitch. I guess it is where you want the tow bar stored. If the tow bar slips into the receiver hitch it will store on the back the MH. Seems like the choice today. I think the more important choice would be, can I hook up tow vehicle on uneven ground.

Yeah, the ones that connect via that ball are mounted and stored on the front of the toad. Very few folks are using them now. Those you see are usually a temp install to tow a car one time. Get the one that slides into the reciever. There are many threads on the board that discussed the benefits of different makes. The two most common are Blue Ox and Roadmaster but there are others also. Have fun and enjoy the process.
