I had a Roadmaster Sterling on previous MH & Toad.
Switched to Blue Ox when we changed MH & toad as it came with the BO.
When I closely inspected the BO and contacted them they would not recommend rebuilding with new parts and simply said buy a new one which I did as I was already committed to it with the toad.

I have to say I never had any real problems with either (since replacing the BO) but if I did it again I would go with a Sterling and the removable tab mounts.
Follow mfg recommendations for cleaning & lubing and you should be fine... theybare different and should not be treated the same no matter what internet posters recommend... follow mfg recommendations.

Another vote for the Ready Brute Elite. Been using one for several years, works great. Before that I had the Ready Brake and a cheap, rigid towbar - worked fine but was a pain to hook up, especially when I was alone. When I bought the RBE I gave the old Ready Brake to a friend and he's still using it - it's about 8 years old now.

This is the most recent example I have seen regarding a Blue Ox failure.
There's more info on that one here, by the owner:
