I have a '93 Accord and want to tow it with my Monaco Dip, which came with a Towmatic II towbar by Duncan. I can't find this unit for sale anywhere, but I see adapters for Roadmaster and Blue Ox base plates for this tow bar. Has anyone used this set up?

Dumkin tow bar was purchase by Blue Ox a while back so you should check with them about adapters.

I used this set up for at least 40k miles. That is, a Duncan tow bar and Roadmaster base plate and brackets. System works great. As another poster has said, Duncan was bought out be Blue Ox some time ago. I see this tow bar on E-bay occasionally but never any new ones.

I got the Roadmaster adapter setup and had it installed by Pat Rogers Hitches in Marietta, GA. They installed the bracets, adapter, tow bar and did the wiring on my Accord. They did a nice job. It's very inconspicuous when the support bars are removed. The Duncan tow bar has worked great so far. The only negative I have with it is that the tow bar stays with the car when it's unhooked from the MH. Of course, when I'm at home I remove the tow bar and the support arms from the car(just takes two pins to remove the whole thing) and store them in my garage.
