Anyone heard of Safe Tow?

I have a tow plate on the front of my Jeep from when we towed it with a Class A. I have a new Class A and think I'll try towing the Jeep, which still has the plate on the front. I took it to Camping World today, and they thought the plate was a Roadmaster, but when I returned home and found old records, they say we purchased a Tow-Me Combination from Safe Tow in 1997. Googling turns up nothing; anyone ever heard of Safe Tow? I'm thinking I may be in for another $500 surprise when I go to get the tow bar installation.

Just a question of getting from the connection lugs on your baseplate to the lugs on whatever tow bar you are going to have. If there's not an already convertible pieces made by your towbar manufacturer or a third party supplier, I'm sure a good machine shop could come up with something for a far lower price than $500.

Went to a second RV dealer to get a price comparison, and they confirmed that the plate will work with a Roadmaster tow bar. (I had found another piece that had made the plate work with the Safe Tow). I have a price of $2,152.80 for the Falcon All Terrain tow bar and the RVI2 braking system, almost $700 cheaper than similar equipment from Camping World. (Camping World was the same tow bar but with a BrakeBuddy.)
