Blue Ox Patriot 3 Braking System

The Patriot 3 Brake System from Blue Ox gives you the comfort needed when you are braking your tow vehicle. Not only is it convenient and easy to store, but it also proportionally applies the brakes smoothly while you’re slowing down to a stop, instead of suddenly jolting your tow vehicle causing costly damage to your brakes. The Patriot 3 even works with Hybrids! The Blue Ox Patriot 3 braking system comes with a two year warranty.

The Patriot 3 works for your motor home and tow car by safely bringing it to a smooth stop with proportional braking.

No More Wires – Monitor all brake functions or manually apply brakes from the comfort of the driver’s seat through a wireless remote control that continuously communicates with the braking system.

No More Power Concerns – Built-in super capacitor battery ensures power is always available to the brake.

No More Mess – By using an electric cylinder there are no air pumps, storage tanks or hoses – therefore, no chance for leaking and greatly reduces power required.

The Ascent by Blue Ox is a Class III tow bar made from aircraft grade aluminum rated for 7,500 pounds. A light-weight, 31-pound tow bar that is self-aligning allowing for quick and easy hook-up. The legs are 2 inches longer, for maneuvering around tight corners and smoother towing. The Ascent’s off-set triple lugs and non-binding latches create ease with unhooking, even if the vehicle is parked on an un-level surface. There is no centering pin, so it is easy to stow and store. Not only is the Ascent highly functional and easy to use, but it comes with safety cables, rubber boots to prevent dirt and debris from getting in the legs, has a Diamond Vogel metallic powder coating, and raised premium gold toned Blue Ox nameplate.

The Avail by Blue Ox is a Class IV tow bar constructed of steel, with a product weight of 53 pounds, and rated to tow up to 10,000 pounds. This is a self-aligning tow bar made to work on wide or narrow towed vehicles. The revolutionary non-binding latch design allows the legs to extend and collapse for easy hookup as well as an easy release under any conditions. The off-set triple lugs make attaching the legs to the towed vehicle simple. The arms of the Avail tow bar are 2 inches longer, creating an improved turning radius for better cornering and smoother towing over uneven road conditions. With the ability to compress the legs, the tow bar can be easily stowed while still attached to the towing vehicle. The Avail comes with safety cables, rubber boots to protect the legs, and is coated in a premium metallic paint with a raised gold toned Blue Ox nameplate.

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.
