Thanks footdoc, but after a second call to Roadmaster they're saying now that they discontinued making separate front arms for my frame brackets with the 1&1/2" receivers(XL series)...well, unless you buy the brackets AND front arms as a unit. They say they are a matched unit...
Up until they told my that, I was prepared to go straight Roadmaster from frame brackets to RV receivers.
I'm to the point now that I'm seriously thinking I'll get rid of the RM brackets and start from scratch with Blue Ox base plate. That way I'll eliminate the cross/draw bar of the RM and get the BO towbar of my choice. I DO like the dust boots of the Blue Ox Aventa/Aladdin and the fact they don't use a draw bar for my Wrangler.
I really dislike the thought of spending the extra cash, but I just don't think there is another way...well with the exception of buying ANOTHER set of RM brackets and front arm assemblies.
I'd still have the conversion to blue ox to contend with plus the crossbar
The wife and I are REALLY anxious to get this RV thing going, but I'm still open for any suggestions. I'm just glad the weather is still a little nasty for traveling...think: He's trying desperately to justify the delay in his mind!
Just as an aside, it's not my intent to offend any RM owners, Roadmaster's whole system looks to be very robust and I like the way they protect the wiring by running it thru channels on the tow bar arms. I am just trying to save some weight/mass of the cross bar and like the dust boots on the Blue Ox tow bars.
