If you have towed for any length of time you may have used or are still using the old try and true A-frame style tow bar. But these tow bars can be difficult to connect and disconnect, especially if your by yourself or are on an uneven surface. The arms are a fixed length and the tow vehicle has to be positioned perfectly to make the connection to the baseplate tabs. This is not necessary with the Aventa LX, you can make the connection by getting the vehicle close to the tow bar arms and then move the arms in position even if your on uneven terrain. The industry first ball-in-socket design allows for infinite movement of the tow bar allowing for unprecedented range of motion. Blue Ox motorhome mounting tow bars also self align themselves once the motorhome is pull forward and the adjustable arms lock into place. Although, you may here some say that the tow bar arms are non-binding, and for the most part that is correct, but there maybe an occasion when you have stopped at a sharp angle putting more stress on the release mechanism than can be released by the lever. In these cases you may have to pull forward slightly to release that binding force to then get the lever to release. Another innovation by Blue Ox is the tapered triple lugs that give the tow bar arms the proper towing angle while in use and a secure connection to the baseplates tabs. This results in a sturdy connection that is stronger and more rigid for a safer, more dependable 4 wheels down towing experience. The Aventa LX also offers a simple and easy storage method right on the back of your motorhome. After you have disconnected the tow bar from your towed vehicle, the arms of the tow bar are brought together and the integrated pin is then inserted into the storage slot. Now your Avent LX is stored neatly and out of the way until it is needed again.

This tow bar is an upgrade of the old Aventa II Tow bar which was around for about 10 years and had a great track record. Having evaluated both versions the Aventa LX ball and socket design is a great improvement over the bi-directional joint the Aventa II utilized. The ball and socket provides infinite movement between the tow vehicle and the RV and greatly reduces the maintenance this area required in the past. We also like the angled triple lug tabs they incorporated for easier hookup. Our evaluation unit has about 30,000 miles on it and the only maintenance has been to replace the nylon washers and tighten the bolt where the 2 arms come together and lube the ball and socket.
