Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Apollo Tow Bar - Hitch Mount Style - BX7470

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Blue Ox Apollo Motorhome Mount Tow Bar for a two and a half inch hitch. It has a 15,000 lb weight capacity. Now this Apollo tow bar is an all steel tow bar, it's rated for larger tow vehicles, like a full-sized truck or SUV up to 15,000 lbs. This tow bar lets you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motorhome.

This portion right here is what'll slide into your two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver on your RV, no ball mounts are necessary. It comes with the included hitch pin and clip for attaching it. Now this is a self-aligning design tow bar. You can hook up to the base plates on your tow vehicle, and then when you drive your RV forward, these arms will extend into a rigid tow-ready position and automatically lock into place.So once you get these hooked up, you can see as you drive your RV forward, these arms will extend out and when they get far enough you'll hear them, just like that they'll lock into place. The handle goes down that locks them into place, same on that arm.

These longer arms will improve turning range to easily maneuver your rig. You can move around gas, pumps, other obstacles with ease and you can take corners without worrying about your towed vehicle contacting your RV. The non-binding latches have these low profile handles, make it easy to unhook your tow bar from multiple angles, just push down on it and that'll release it. You can push it all the way in and lock it into the storage position. And again, just to show you when he extended out, once you get it out long enough, it'll lock it into place.If you notice, it has rubber boots to protect the telescoping arms from dirt and grind.

It does usually triple lug connection, you can see the triple lug design here. These sturdy brackets are on the end of each tow bar arm, they provide a reinforced connection to the base plates. Each arm attaches and detaches from the base plates using these included pins and clips. There's one on each arm. And then when you go to store this, you just release this and push it all the way in just like that.

You can squeeze these together, raise them up and then once it's up against the motorhome, you can put them to either side for storage alongside the motorhome, very easy to store. This is made of a heavy duty steel, helps resist corrosion. The finish on it is a real nice dark gray metallic powder coating.And again, it comes with the safety chains. It has 15,000 lb rated safety cables with the heavy duty drop forge steel hooks that have these spring loaded latches for added security. And on the cable itself, they have a vinyl coating which keeps it from scratching or chipping your tow bar. This part is made in the USA. Again, the application is for two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receivers. Weight capacity is 15,000 lbs and the total weight on this tow bar is about 49 lbs. That should do it for the review on the Blue Ox Apollo Motorhome Mount Tow Bar for two and a half inch hitch with a 15,000 lb weight capacity.
