Blue Ox Avail Arm play

Just got a 2 yr old Avail towbar. At fully extended how much play should I expect. It slides smoothly but does have some wiggle room is this normal? Thanks

Wiggle room where it attaches to the toad? Yes, after initially attaching lock pin but not after you start towing.

Once the arm is locked, there is no play. It’s as solid as if it was one piece.

Never noticed any side play in the fulltime rear view camera while towing. It is very soidly attached. So suggest contaacting Blue Ox https://www.blueoxtowbars.com/?msclk...wing%20Systems with your question
