Ok you smart RV Guy's help me out. I want to tow an H3, 4 wheels down. I know nothing about this subject but it seems the tow bar is a good place to start. I'm looking at a Aventa II by Blue Ox, I have found it on sale for $400, yea or na?

Thanks Doc, The bar is new from PPL. Looks to be a good price so I think I'll go for it. Next step, braking system!

Bob (rebelsbeach) just had our Air Force One system installed in his 07 H3 after being grossly dissatisfied with his previous braking system. I am sure that you could contact him for more details on how it works, or maybe he will even chime in here...

Brent thanks for the input. I have read all of Bob's post on your product, Air Force One, and I'm impressed. I decided a while back to go with AFO. Now all I need is a local installer, can you help? Knoxville, TN.

Sorry for the delay. We are constantly adding new dealers, so your best bet is to call the 800 number below and ask for Jesse. He takes care of coordinating all of our dealers.

our Hummer dealer, who also has a DP, said we needed to use the unified tow system. We have bought it but not installed yet. Now we're confused as to whether this is the best way to go?

Sounds like your dealer is trying hard,but may not know the basics of the Air Force One.

I would highly recommend you contact Jesse and find a dealer whereby you can have an Air Force One installed....
Brent is correct, as my H3 brakes were almost ruined by the ReadyBrake I was using...

The AFO is proportional braking in my opinion AT IT'S BEST!!

The tech support is second to none as well....We're fortunate to have the SMI gang posting right alongside our members...
