Would be nice to know the brand of the tow bars and if they were at fault, or just the home built hitches were at fault.

Eagle I towed 2 of them in and all brand names hitches it's the mounting brackets on toads or on one it looks like someone pulled hitch pin out.

After any stop do your walk around and check that hitch.

 On my Eagle last year the tow hitch on the bus broke it's bolts, a Reese Hitch and factory supplied bolts. I caught it when I stopped for the night. No damage to tow vechile.

It looks like folks are playing with our equipt in Quartzsite a fiver lost yesterday they stopped at big tent show for a few hours and made it about a hundred yards and fiver came off pickup hitch handle was pulled when we lifted it up.

So padlocks on hitches may be the way to go.
