I saw another thread about where to get this done - RV dealer or elsewhere, so I'm wondering - where all did you guys get your tow bars done?

I'm am not mechanically inclined, so an involved process I would defer to a mechanic.

RoadTrip I installed it myself but Camping World and I'm sure local dealers will install everything including the electrical for a few hundred dollars.

You can hire me but I charge by round trip mileage on top of the installation costs so I guess me travelling to MO is out of the question.

Has bought me a 16' alum.trailer with duel axles electric brakes on all 4 wheels #7000 gvw 7.6' wide. now will load my bike victory vision #906 and drive fiat in and go. He says that will make it easy for his momma and me. It is a box trailer he says that way the car and bike won't get as dirty.He is the only child we raise a good one.

My mind's already wondering how I can get my Sunseeker AND toad over to AZ....

hmmm, maybe rent a uhaul car dolly? Surely they'd rent those separate from a truck....

Maybe you can catch me on my way to Florida. We leave in about 10 days. I will be the Georgetown pulling a red Fiat behind.

Well shooooot - I ain't even ready yet! I still have to research tow bars, become terminally indecisive about that, then research braking assist thingys, and flip flop on those - and then finally I have to debate in my head whether we even need a toad with a class C...

We got plenty of time....
