In 2015, we embarked on a Arizona winter trip, utlilizing a 2 car dolly to tow our 2008 SUV behind our class A motorhome. Although this was convenient, loading and unloading the SUV took between 10-15 minutes each time. It became very frustrating. As we drove through many states we observed the majority of RV's towing, 4 down with a tow bar. This was something that peaked my interest and had me looking into it further. As well, while in Quartzsite, Arizona, at the big RV Show there in January I had seen a few dealers of tow bars, and stuck up conversations. One in particular was Demco.
The Demco dealer at the show, expressed some of the advantages of a tow bar over a 2 wheeled dolly.
- ease of connecting
- 40 lb total weight compared to 1,000 + lbs ( resulting in better gas mileage)
- minimal storage required
I was sold- I decided this was something I just had to have. I ordered the Demco Commander tow bar, and it was delivered with easy to follow instructions. There is time involved however to do the installation of the base plate. It took me in total approx. 6 hours. The end result was worth it and I'd highly recommend one of these!
