Question Tow Systems

I purchased a new to me motorhome, our second coach, and now have 2 complete tow systems. Question which is the best performer?

System 1 is Blue ox Alladin tow bar (5000 lb rating), Brake Buddy Classic.

System 2 is Roadmaster Sterling Tow bar (6000 lb rating), Blue ox brake system similar to brake buddy.

I'm interested in your opinions and experiences as I don"t need two.

Thanks

I would be interested in buying whatever option you decide not to use. My wife and I just bought our 1st Class A today. I will be setting our Saturn as a toad and will be buying a braking system and a tow bar.

Hi colemole,
Both systems are brand names and work. The question is, which one works best with you? Or, which one do you work best with? Every product has its' own little quirks. Keep the one that you interface with the easiest and best. It seems you already have a buyer for the other system.

Keep the tow bar that fits the baseplate on your toad!

I am in Virginia. When you decide which system works best for you let me know and we can discuss it. Thanks for considering it.

Both good systems. I went with the Roadmaster Sterling because I believe the vehicle mounting system is more durable. The cross bar that Roadmaster uses should take some side-to-side pressure off the TOAD's frame rails.

I will sell the Blue Ox Alladin Tow hitch and the Blue Ox Apollo brake control. I also have a 4 inch drop hitch if you require one. If you are still interested I'll take some pictures and email them to you.

We went with the Roadmaster brackets on our Buick Rendezvous and the Sterling All Terrain Towbar. Love the installation on the Rendezvous and the towbar is a snap to use.
