I have a 2009 gulfstream A class and im in the process of buying a blue ox towing system. I was under the impression that i could just buy the tow hitch and hook it up to the tow mounts on the front of my avalanche( LOL) but i did find out that i need some bracket installed for the blue ox hitch. The dealership here is trying to charge me $600 to install

You can get an idea of the bracket cost by surfing PPL's on-line store. Installation is usually a PITA and probably worth the $250 entry fee. If you have a decent work area and someone to lend a hand, you can do it yourself though.

I think you better look at the towing capacity of your MH. Most MH like that only have a towing capacity of 4000 lbs.

On some (many) vehicles you must take the grill and body "front end (bumper,etc.,.).

Make sure you know what you are getting into. Remember: Loctite red.
