One and a half years and 15,000 miles pulling a Wrangler Unlimited and no problems. I would call Blue Ox direct and tell them about it before renting a trailer. Willing to bet they would have someone come to you and install a new base plate at no cost. Try it - nothing to lose and they're a great company.

3 years no problem is the tow bar level never try to back up or make sharp turns
Did it brake at the weld or did the steel break last but not lest who installed it
Sometimes when something is off a bit you. Get some rockt scientist who uses a bit of heat and a vice to make it fit

Yes. Mine become useless after towing my Jeep Cherokee to the Yukon. The quick release stack got bent and no help from Blue OX. Buy a different make. I would switch to Road Master. Sorry for your trouble. Blue Ox use to be a good company but now I don't know?

Thumbs up

6 years with Blue Ox and no trouble. Just did 6290 miles from Wisconsin west,and down to Texas. Lots of mountains, never and issue. First year we had it, 10000 mile Alaska trip. Have every confidence in Blue Ox, contact them first.
