Blue Ox Announces Alliance with Forest River

PENDER, Neb. -- Blue Ox President Jay Hesse and Ellen Kietzmann, vice president, today announced Blue Ox formed an alliance with Forest River’s V-Cross and XLR divisions. Blue Ox will be supplying SwayPro built-in sway prevention systems as optional equipment on select V-Cross and XLR models.

Brent Stevens, national sales manager of Forest River’s V-Cross and XLR divisions, is premiering the SwayPro system as an optional feature on the new 2014 lineup. Additionally, SwayPro is currently offered free as part of a special limited promotion on the Vibe brand through March 1.

“Blue Ox is the best name in sway control. Our customers will appreciate Blue Ox’s intuitive, easy to hook-up hitch system that prevents trailer sway before it starts for a smooth towing experience. Each SwayPro system is specifically engineered for the weight of the unit it ships with,” Stevens said.

Blue Ox’s SwayPro is the most user-friendly hitch on the market today, said Hesse.

"This built-in sway protection system prevents trailer sway before it starts, under heavy loads, high winds and rutted road conditions with the latest in weight distribution technology," he explained. "SwayPro’s spring bars are made from spring steel and flex to provide optimal weight distribution and improved ground clearance; providing a softer, smoother ride. There are no pins or clips to lose and no adjustments are needed. Blue Ox SwayPro is the only hitch you’ll ever need."

The secure system is tow-ready and comes with a limited lifetime warranty, he added.

This is a very smart move. It will make it a lot easier for new owners and reduce the chances of a dangerous TV/trailer combination.
