Dinghy towing or towing your vehicle behind your motorcoach with all four wheels on the ground is by far the safest and most convenient way to bring your passenger car, truck or SUV. Although no manufacturer has yet to engineer a plug-and-play setup directly from the factory, it’s never been simpler to equip both dinghy and motorhome for road usage. Lichtsinn RV’s parts department sells Blue Ox’s family of products for sale including the Ascent and the Avail tow bars.

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.
