  • Choosing Between the Brake Buddy Select 3 and the Blue Ox Patriot II Supplemental Braking System
  • When it comes to choosing between the Blue Ox Patriot II # BRK2016 and the Brake Buddy Select 3 # HM39524, these systems are extremely similar in their setup and functionality. Both of these systems provide proportional braking in a compact and easy to install braking box and there are a ton of great reviews for both of these systems. In regards to functionality, I've seen some reports of the Patriot II being a little bit slower in the response to the braking on their RV, which I have not...

  • Towing Mirrors For 2020 GMC Sierra 1500
  • Yes, the Longview Custom Towing Mirrors # LO54FR are custom fit for your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500. They install very quickly and easily, just slip them over your factory mirror and tighten a hand knob. I prefer custom towing mirrors rather than universal because they fit better, and seem to blend into the factory mirror and look that much nicer. I attached a few photos for you to check out and a video for reference.

  • Comparing Hollywood Racks Destination vs. Swagman XTC 4-Bike Rack
  • The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack # S64665 and Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Rack # HR4000 are two of the best values in regards to 4-bike racks, and when taking everything into consideration I highly recommend the Destination # HR4000. There are a number of reasons for this, starting with the fact that the Destination is going to be easier to load your bikes on because of its large and curved wheel trays compared to the hoops of the XTC-4 that make you plop the bikes in just right....

  • Comparing Curt Hitches for a 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • The differences between the between the Curt # C13149 and the Curt # C13406 for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 are that the 13149 has a visible crosstube and is rated for use with a weight distribution system while the 13406 has a concealed crosstube (for a more sleek look) and it isn't rated for use with a weight distribution system. If you plan on towing I recommend using the 13149 but if you just plan on using it for recreational items like a bike rack or cargo carrier then I recommend the...

  • Are Extra Supports Needed for the Reese Eclipse When Used with Womens/Kids Bikes
  • Yes, the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack part # 63124 should work just fine with your two adult and two kids bikes. However, because of the alternative frame on the womens bike, you will also most likely need to use the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005. I have attached a photo of the adapter bar in use. In regards to the kids bike with training wheels, I don't see any issue as to why this would be a problem for the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack so long as the horizontal top...

The receiver tube unbolts from the cross body of the hitch. When you put the receiver tube back in the hitch you have to tighten the bolt down.

  • In order to flat-tow a thirteenth generation (2015-2018) Ford F-150 with all four wheels on the ground behind a motorhome you are going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tail light wiring harness, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. There may also be a few other smaller components that are needed depending on options the vehicle is equipped with. For a tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk...

The first is the style, with the Curt hitch being a concealed crosstube which only shows the receiver, while the Draw-Tite is a visible crosstube, so the Curt is going to maintain your Escape's look better than the Draw-Tite.

The difference is an extra safety measure built into the Patriot 3. The Patriot 3 has new software that will alert you of any unwanted pressure on the brake pedal. For example, if the seat was positioned too far forward and put pressure on the brake pedal without you knowing the Patriot 3 would alert you to this whereas the Patriot...

The B&W OEM Companion # BWRVK3715 and the Curt A25 # C24FR for the factory pucks on your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 (congrats on the new truck, by the way!) represent the very peak of fixed 5th wheel hitches on the market. Between the two options though I do recommend the B&W Companion # BWRVK3715 and I will go over my reasoning below. Both hitches feature a dual jaw design that's built to provide a really secure connection with the trailer as well as...

  • Which Enclosed Hitch Cargo Carrier is Most Secure from Theft

The locks are similar to what you'd see on a briefcase and the lid is position in such a way that it would be the easiest to pry off. The winner in my opinion is the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # H00604 when used with a padlock part # ACC3250 because not only is the pad lock more secure than the Thule Combi # TH665C lock the way the carrier...

There is no fascia or bumper trimming at all. This also has more than enough capacity as the hitch is rated for up to 6,000 lbs trailer weight. The install is the same as the Curt # C13421 but this hitch has a lower capacity of 5,000 lbs trailer weight so I recommend the Draw Tite. To tow a trailer you will also need trailer...

  • How do I Pick the Right Roadmaster Active Suspension Enhancement Kit for my 2018 Ford F-150

In my experience it also helps the handling characteristics of the vehicle by reducing the body roll of the truck. The Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom...

  • Does Draw-Tite Hitch 75600 Require Bumper Fascia Trimming on 2016 BMW X5
  • Yes, Draw-Tite hitch # 75600 does require rear fascia trimming for installation on the 2016 BMW X5. The linked photo shows you an underneath view of the trimmed fascia.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft. The hitch ball platform of this mount actually flips underneath the shank to face your truck, saving you from accidentally slamming your leg into it when walking behind your F-250. Additionally, when the Tow & Stow is in your...
