Forester 3051S, Blue Ox addons

Recently placed an order for a 2016 Forester 3051S.

Has anyone added any of the Blue Ox items: Trucenter, Trac Bars or Sway Bars?

What has been your experience with them? Was it worth the expense?

Anxious to hear replies on this, too. We have a Falcon 2 hitch and have had to unhook twice due to tight turns. Recently read an article in the Jan 2016 Motorhome Magazine regarding the Blue Ox dinghy tow bars. "The Avail provides an improved turning radius for better cornering. Its nonbinding latch design releases easily under any conditions. The Avail features a no-interference, low-profile handle design, allowing RVers to maneuver around gas station pumps with greater ease, while keeping the dinghy safely away from the motorhome in tight turns." Definitely sounds like something to check out. If you get more insight, please share. BTW congratulations on your new Forester. We enjoy ours very much!

I have the Trac Bar and True Center installed on my Georgetown. I did the Trac Bar a year ago and the improvement was significant. No more being pushed over by large vehicles as they passed, both from behind or from the front. This past summer, I had the True Center installed. Again, a big difference. Cross winds no longer bother me. I just set it and can drive like there is not much wind at all, if any. I will note, gusty winds still have to be dealt with, but not nearly as bad. Have never had a front blowout - and don't want one - but True Center is supposed to help with that also. Well worth the money, imo.
