Whew, don't give a lot of info to get us started. If you have a diesel pusher with air brakes, a different set of answers than if you have a gasser.
If you are planning to pull something that needs the 10000 Lb tow bar, you must have a big diesel.
So....right off the bat I'll give you a link to the place where I get all my tow equipment, and over the years I have purchased a bunch. Many different RV's from 5th wheels, class C's, class A's from gassers to Diesel Pushers and back again
https://www.etrailer.com
If you go to e.trailer.com they have all the expertise you will need. Shipment is fast, I installed all my tow equipment on vehicles myself. Pulled Jeeps, a Dodge 2500, Dodge regular pickup, but jeeps are my favorite.
Anyhoo, give us some info on the type of RV you have or are thinking about and we can get a little more specific.
Thanks and welcome to the forum.

I run a Blue Ox and have for many years. I have had it rebuilt twice. I have an Invisa-brake installed in the car, I set it once and have not changed it.

Why don't you tell us what you want to tow and what you want to pull it with. Much easier to give you an answer that makes sense.

I use a 10,000# Blue Ox tow bar and the M&G brake system. Excellent setup and easy to use. (only if you have air brakes)

Blue Ox Avail 10000 lb, Patriot II brake control.


Both work very well, but, I now wish I went with a permanent brake control with nothing to put in or take out of the car each time you want to tow or drive it

I'm towing a Jeep wrangler with a Blue Ox and a "stay-n-play" brake system. Like the idea that all I have to do is turn the system on and go.

I have the new Ready Brute Hercules setup 12,000lb rated and it has their integrated braking system. Easy to install and much cheaper than a tow bar with separate braking system. Donít forget to order the breakaway setup as it is sold
seperately. I have used this setup
for the last 9 months. So far I am happy with it.
