Blue Ox for sale

Bill, Thank you for the quick reply. I am formally from Mantua Ohio..so familiar with the snow belt ! Been in South West Georgia for 24 years now. We have just sold a tandem trailer and "think" I have my 1992 Mazda Miata sold. Trailer was just too much work anymore...hate to lose the Miata, but it is over according to my wife !! With that history in mind....do not have a new Toad yet....looking but thinking along the lines of a Fit or Sonic size vehicle..a Jeep at the largest. I am unfamiliar with tow bars, but this one appears that it is rated for 5000 pounds. Realize I would need to purchase the base plate for the vehicle I buy. I assume (or do you know) if this hitch is compatible with standard blue ox base plates? Just getting into this end and unsure of differences of tow packages. hate to purchase and then find out the connecting ends are different on the particular base plate I would need to purchase. Did this unit come with the safety cables, electrical connection, etc? Thanks for any information you might be able to share. Thom

Thom, in the box is the Acclaim tow bar and safety cables and all included instructions. There are no electrical connections with the bar. It will attach to the Blue Ox removable tabs that come with the Blue Ox base plate.

If you go with another base plate mfg. you would need to change the front attachment brackets to what ever brand of base plate you go with. Adapter kits are available form Blue Ox. We use a Blue Ox base plate on our Honda CR-V that is our toad. The removable tabs with the Blue Ox are great. Install them when needed and remove them when not needed.

Leaving Monday for a week in Florida and a visit to the Tampa RV show. Will return on the 22nd.

Bill

Bill, Thank you again for your reply and information. I did some googling and have a better education/understanding as to the tow bars, pieces and parts etc. after our initial conversation. I also looked and there is the same unit on Amazon for $443, prime shipping included. I am thinking that sending a 40 pound unit will cost me over the $43 dollars to ship from Ohio to Georgia. I am certain you can sell on Craig's or other web site for the $400 asking locally...it is a good deal. My apologies for taking your time, but guess we can only learn by asking questions. Safe travels along the highways. Enjoy Fla.....only one week is way too short a time period. Thank you again. Thom

No apologies needed, hope you find the RV your looking for. My wife had a highly modified by Peter Ferrel Super Cars a 3rd gen. (1993) RX7. Top speed 186, only ever had it to 158. Sold it when we put an addition on our boarding kennel. Great car, very hard to get into, no tilt wheel.
