Towing equipment...

I am wanting to get a base plate for my Honda CRV 2010 to tow 4 down behind my Jayco Class C. I understand Blue Ox is the best tow bar to get. Which is better and easiest the Aventa or the Aladdin for towing and unhooking, etc. This is my first towing (car) experience. Thanks for your thoughts! is offline   Reply With Quote

I just got a quote from my RV dealer for a Demco system including a base plate for $1816 installed. No braking system. Rated for 6000 lbs. The Blue Ox quote was about $3000 w/o brakes. Don't know very much about Demco, yet.

Check Demco's web site.

Just recently had a Blue Ox Alpha tow bar rated 6500 lbs and base plate installed on my older Honda (2001 Accord). Total price installed was $1482 at a local RV repair shop. Base plate was $439, Tow bar was $545, labor was $255, Shipping was $65, electrical was $101, tax ws $76. Don't know if the newer models base plate is higher, but tow bar and other stuff I would think would be similar in price for all models. Keep shopping around and you can probably save some money. I have towed my Honda twice and was very satisfied with performance, including hoooking/unhooking the tow bar. Good luck and keep looking.
