Used Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar

I am looking for guidance, suggestions and information on the quality of this tow bar and what to look for as far as wear and tear. I just found one and I am considering driving a couple hours to look at it but would like opinions as to what to ask when I call before I go. I have never owned a tow bar before or towed a vehicle. I have towed a great many miles pulling bumper hitch trailers, campers, fifth wheels and a plethora of other things but never a car so I am trying to bone up on what tow bars and brakes work best and what doesn't. I would also be interested in what has worked well for anyone towing a Honda CR V.

MH is Phoenix Cruiser 2400 (24') on Ford E350 chassis and we purchased a 2013 Honda CR V last Saturday preparing for the future when we travel much more. We really like this MH but we also know that it is too small for staying in for extended periods of time so we are looking to move up to a larger one. Looking at a Thor 34' maybe. I am no great hurry to make this big change as I enjoy the work I do. My father always said if you enjoy what you do you never work another day in your life. Once I no longer enjoy my work it will be off into the wild blue yonder.

First, Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bars are outstanding! I've used them exclusively for the last 12 years. You might want to read this before purchasing a used tow bar.

Thanks for the heads up! I am new to this so anything helps. I talked to the guy that owns it and got pictures of it. He got downsized soon after getting the MH and toad. He tells me it has less than 2k miles on it. From the pictures I have seen it looks new. I am going to look at it Sunday so I can see it up close. He also has other accessories that he says I will need. I will find out Sunday and get educated as much as I can before I go. Thanks for link Stealth01.
