Which tow bar set up would be lightest, easiest to use and would work with an rv that has a center rear door. I'm assuming that the tow bar needs to be attached to the car rather than the MH because of the rear door. New to rving and have never towed before. Plan to tow a manual Ford Focus. Need a light weight setup due to back problems.

Thanks,

Tony

To, Tony G,

Welcome to IRV2.

You didn't post if your moho has a receiver in back, If it does, you can use any tow bar and set-up.

I use Blue Ox

Hope this info helps.. Tel us more about your rig.

Thanks==== Aime== AJBJRVERS====

Probably something like the Roadmaster Stowmaster series tow bar would work best for you. It stays mounted on the toad and folds up when not in use.

See Stowmaster

However, a basic A-frame type bar would work too. Just not quite as convenient. Tracker tow bar

Blue Ox has bars similar to the Tracker.

All of these connect to a simple ball hitch on the motorhome.

Have a 2006 Born Free Built for Two 22.5 Ft. that has a class III hitch. Will be towing a ford focus manual transmission. Born free has a center rear door with automatic step so I think this would be in the way if I got a tow bar which attached to the motor home.
