Tow Bars

I am interested in purchasing a tow bar to tow four wheels down. I have traveled the lower 48 over the past 15+ years towing a classic cars on a trailer. The classic would double as our local transportation when needed. This has worked out good in the past but with a shorter motor home. I could always back out of a dead end etc. Now we have a 40' Dynasty and it is not as maneuverable as the previous units. I would also like to travel to places that are not destinations for a car show. I see a lot of our Monaco family use the Blue Ox toe bars and I would like to get some input (good and bad) about these as well as other suggestions. I really would like to come across a known good used unit but don't know enough about them to judge their condition. I know that the assembly that attaches to the car is made for a particular year and model and would probably have to be ordered for that car. At present, my toad would a 2010 Ford Fusion. I also need some education about toad brakes.

I have gained a lot of information on this forum and I thank the ones that respond with the many helpful suggestions and tips. I hope to be able to meet some of our members as we travel this beautiful country.

The Blue Ox Aladdin can be matched with the AutoStop for essentially the same setup as the Ready Brute Elite. A little cheaper but does not have as good a warranty.
