Nebr.-Blue Ox’s innovative new Avail™ motorhome mounted tow bar is getting high marks from motor coach owners who want to take their cars or trucks with them as they travel, according to Blue Ox President and CEO Ellen Kietzmann.
Kietzmann added, “The Avail has many new features that appeal to motor coach owners that were previously unavailable on motorhome mounted tow bars including improved turning radius with better cornering, more maneuverability and smoother towing over rough roads.
“With the Avail , the motorhome maneuvers around gas pumps with greater ease and keeps the towed vehicle safely away from the motorhome in tight turns.”
Dave and Joanne Cartaglia, Blue Ox representatives, said, “The Avail is and will be for the rest of the year the hot new product. The look attracts people right away. They love the color because it matches their motorhomes, and they also really like the non-binding latches.”
Mrs. Pat Walbrecht (pictured above), Lincoln, Nebraska, said, “I love the look of the Avail, but more importantly, I can easily hook it up all by myself.”
Avail owner Jim Huston, Yankton, South Dakota, said, “It looks really sharp, but looks only goes so far–it has to perform as well.
“The design is very, very clean — no extra pieces sticking out. A lot of other tow bars have things sticking up and your cables and wires get hung up. On the Avail, there’s nothing there to get hung up on.”
The Avail has a 10,000 lb. tow capacity accommodating virtually all cars and pickups and features patented non-binding latches that release easily under any conditions, and no interference, low profile handle design. It is constructed with high-quality tempered steel ensuring long life and durability and backed by a three-year warranty.
Huston said, “The Avail is longer which means there is more room between the car and coach. I carry bicycles along on a bike rack mounted to the receiver hitch. On other tow bars, it’s pretty tight between the car and coach, but with the Avail, there’s enough room to get hooked up pretty easily.
“That longer distance also makes it possible for tighter turning radius. If you have a wider car, there’s less chance of it hitting. I have fairly narrow car so I don’t have a problem with that.”
“Last but not least, every tow bar I’ve ever had, when coming to stop when turning, these will bind and it is difficult to get them unhooked. No matter how hard I try, I cannot bind the Avail’s latches.”
Blue Ox representatives Jim and Gayle Sharlow said, “The Avail is, without a doubt, the hot new product of the year. The Avail is a winner, the color appeals to men and women. They love the increased turning radius and easy disconnect.”
