What considerations are there in choosing a tow bar?

When choosing a tow bar, you will need to consider whether you want a car mounted tow bar or a coach mounted tow bar. Make sure the bar you select is rated in excess of the towed vehicle and it's contents. Besides that, are the two different basic varieties of tow bars:

  • Rigid A-frame
    The rigid A-frame design is the least expensive but due to it's nature, requires that the towed vehicle be precisely centered behind the coach when hooking up.

  • Collapsible
    The collapsible models are designed with self aligning arms and are much more easy to engage. After hooking up and driving away, the tow bar arms will extend, self center and lock for safe towing.
