Traveling with a dinghy or “toad”, as many RVers would refer, has become exceedingly popular in today’s RV market. Dinghy towing provides the flexibility and convenience to allow you to easily explore and venture outside of your campground or resort. When searching for the perfect towing set-up, the options of tow bars and towable vehicles are endless.
Many of our guests use Blue Ox tow bars for dinghy towing – specifically the Avail. The Blue Ox Avail BX7420 is rated for 10,000-lbs., so it can tow virtually any car or SUV. The Avail is constructed from steel and weighs 53-lbs and comes in a brilliant copper toned powder coat with distinctive badging with gold accents.
The Avail comes with a 2” receiver and longer legs than the Ascent. The longer legs create more room between the RV and the towed vehicle for turns and gives the user more room for hookup. The Avail’s increased leg length also makes it easier to maneuver around obstacles and allows for better tracking for the towed vehicle.
The Avail is extremely easy-to-use with its patented non-binding latches, off-set triple binding lugs which eliminate back and forth movement and will not wear out baseplate tabs, and rubber boots prevent dirt and grime protecting the legs and prevent binding.
You can get a Blue Ox Avail tow bar (BX7420) itself at Lichtsinn RV for $949.00 (plus tax) or get the bar installed by our factory trained and RVDA Master Certified service technicians for $2,475.81 (plus tax). Call our parts department to learn more at 1-800-343-6255.
