I use Blue Ox, tow bar, base plate and tail light system. However there are others just as good. Look for one where the tow bar folds up cleanly on the back of the MH and leaves nothing but two small tabs on the front of the toad.

Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain tow bar and M&G Engineering for brakeing. Takes 3 minutes or less to hook up both systems.

I use the ReadyBrute Elite towbars with built-in ReadyBrake from NSA Rv Products. I think it's the best value out there!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Demco Commander tow bar - mainly because it provides 1.5 inch drop or rise setting built into the hitch head plus ability to adjust bars for even more drop or rise and it is cheaper than many.
Readybrake from Night Shift Auto for stopping. low cost reliable system. Had 30,000 plus miles of troublefree use towing our Jeep and just now moving it over to our new toad.

Blue Ox tow bar and Brake Buddy. Why? Because I got a good deal on them used via Craigslist. Bolt on brackets to my Jeeps aftermarket bumper, lights, cables, etc. I have about $600 all up invested. Works well. I have used for a few years.

The Brake Buddy having to be removed and reinstalled is a bit if effort. I have a used ReadyBrake sitting in the workshop waiting to replace the Brake Buddy. Then the Brake Buddy will be back on Craigslist. .

Blue Ox for us, as said before there are several good brands. We chose B O because they attend Rally's and give good factory support.

+1 along with a Blue Ox base plate. Great value. Easy hookup.

Love our ReadyBrute Elite with built in braking system. It's a no-brainer to use and a great value.

Blue Ox Tow bar, Used to use a US-Gear "Decelerator" on the car. but will go with the Blue Ox Auto Stop on the new towed.

I agree, Look for a system where it "Stows" on the MH. Way nicer than the ones that "Stow" on the car.

Agree. My BO works well. However if I were buying again and buying new I would go with ReadyBrute with ReadyBrake built in.
