Towing with a 35UN

I will be using a blue Ox and my Jayco is a little higher off the ground at the hitch than my class C. Any problems?

You will need a drop down depending on what your towing.

Fireman, the rule of thumb is 2-3 inches. My 31 UL is 1 above the base plate on my Equinox. I consider this ideal. If your toad is 1-3 below your MH hitch, I would think your OK. More than that, a drop down might be in order. Your installer should recommend what you need. Good Luck

Have towed a Ford Focus and now a Nissan Frontier 2wd, 5 speed. Seems to work fine on both rigs but 8k passes still take some time.

Towing with 31UL in the west

We have a 2015 Precept and live in SW Washington state. Any direction we travel there are mountain passes to go over. We tow a Jeep Wrangler on a Stehl car dolly. No issues at all just be prepared to go 45mph over some of the passes.
Travel safe

I am about to tow a Chevy HHR with my 2016 Alante 31V for the first time. I will be using a Tow Master Dolly. Any advice?

Yes. Remember it takes longer to stop. Also, after you strap it down, go a few miles down the road, pull over to a safe spot and tighten straps again. I towed with a Stehl tow dolly and a Chevy Equinox for awhile then bought me a Jeep Wrangler and tow with a blue Ox. Much easier.

We tow a 2001 Toyota Corolla, Blue OX and Roadmaster mounting plate (none available from Blue Ox).
Use Ready Brake, easy hookup and no issues towing.

We tow a 2010 Honda CR-V. Entire Blue OX set-up and it tows like a charm. Had to use a 2" drop receiver.
