Let’s face it, there’s a lot to learn when entering the world of motorhomes.
One of the more confusing aspects of ownership is how to safely tow a vehicle behind a motorhome. Simply stated, there’s quite a few terms associated with towing that can sound like a foreign language to a new owner. Adding to the information overload, there’s quite a bit of conflicting information online about which tow bar or towing accessory a new user should consider. It’s safe to say that much of that decision is based on the type of vehicle you’re towing, the availability of qualified installers and how you’ll use your vehicle once you arrive at your destination.
With more than 10,000 miles of flat towing two different cars behind my two motorhomes, the Blue Ox tow bar I’m using has proven to be reliable and relatively easy to setup
Instead of providing recommendations on specific products or manufacturers, I took a different route and will show you the equipment I use. Allow me to point out that as always, I pay for the products I feature online and no consideration is provided for highlighting a specific product or service. With more than 10,000 miles of flat towing two different cars behind my two motorhomes, the Blue Ox tow bar I’m using has proven to be reliable and relatively easy to setup.
After watching a few videos online and finding inconsistencies related to the proper setup procedures, I contacted Blue Ox to arrange an interview with a knowledgeable professional to address questions such as:
- How to select the correct tow bar for a specific vehicle;
- The manufacturer’s recommended method for safe and efficient setup;
- What to look for to make sure your tow bar is safe to tow;
- How to avoid tow bar binding;
- When to have maintenance performed on a tow bar;
- And more.
Below you’ll find two videos, with each one focusing on the specific setup of a Blue Ox Alpha or Ascent tow bar:
