Screaming Deal on a New Tow Bar Plus

 Today we came across a deal too good to pass up. One of our neighbors here at the Tinker RV Park, switched from towing his vehicle 4 down to getting a small trailer to tow. We were talking and he offered to sell us his Falcon tow bar and rock guard shield at a very good price. We had looked at the Falcons before, but even used they were out of our price range. Of course you maybe asking, what's the difference between this one and the one you already have? The main difference for us is, the new one stays on the back of the motorhome when you are unhooked and our old one stayed on the Jeep. Now you can take the old one off, but it's heavy and with my arm giving out more and more, it's much more difficult to throw around (usually store it under the rig when not in use). So, this new one will be much easier to deal with and also be easier to hook up and unhook.

 Along with the tow bar, he threw in his Roadmaster Rock Guard. This mounts to the front of the Jeep via the tow mounts. Best part is, it's light weight and very sturdy and will keep the Jeep looking much nicer.

 The Rock Guard also stows away on the rear hitch when not in use, nice. So that was our big score for the day. We actually have been pretty busy lately and also fighting a couple of colds. One big decision we made was to keep our current motorhome, instead of trading it in for a diesel. As nice as a diesel would be, we couldn't justify doubling or tripling our payments along with the added expenses that come with a diesel rig. Besides ours will be paid off in 2 years, got to love that!!! Since we had planned on trading in our rig, we had been letting a few things go, on my next entry I'll go over the improvements and other items we had fixed or modified, so stay tuned and we'll see you then.


  1. I think you made a wise decision to keep your gas rig. Our next rig will be a gasser, while I do love the diesel pusher we have now, it is really expensive to maintain. A gas RV will do us fine with cheaper fuel and more reasonable maintenance costs.
