We went to the Remco site and discovered we will need a $1050 Lube Kit, a $445 base plate, a $1395 braking system, and a $745 tow bar.
So now my new questions for the group:
The truck is about 3500 lbs. There are two tow bars available, 6000 lb and 10000 lb. Is there any need to move up to the 10000lb bar?
I was told somewhere that the braking system is only required in Canada. Is that true? Is the braking system necessary?
This is my opinion and my opinion only on braking systems.
I think it's a matter of personal opinion, a peace of mind thing.
Some folks insists on braking systems. ..
To me me, it's a matter of choice, there are some states (very few) that require brakes in your toad. I am pretty sure you can go to the Blue Ox website and get that info....make sure it is up to date though.
I have exhaust brakes on my coach and go with that.
So, in summary, I'm not saying yay or nay.....your call.
Just be safe, enjoy your new coach
