Obviously, I still have to add a braking system (Undecided), and a rock shield (Undecided.

The reason I went with Blue Ox, is the same reason I went with Tiffin. After Sale Reputation for Customer Service,,,,Period; and I believe a quality product at a competitive cost.
The reason I am posting the setup costs on the forum, is folks are always interested in costs associated with RV'n,
I have gleaned a lot of beneficial information from this site over the years, and hope this will be somewhat helpful to others using the forum.
One final thought, the costs associated with Labor for installation, to me, was $$$ well spent; especially considering the amount of time to personally install and I am sure unexpressed headaches associated with a self-install. As CE said, a man has to know his limitation.
