rv-pro.com July 2020 • RV PRO • 85 Durable Aluminum & Steel Tow Bars Westervelt touts his corrosion-resistant aluminum and steel tow bars as being best in class, while also offering the best value. They feature non-binding, telescoping arms which are designed to make for easy hook-up, unhooking and stowing. The Ready Brute II and Ready Brute Elite II (which incorpo- rates the company's Ready Brake supplemental surge brake into the tow bar) are both all-aluminum tow bars with 8,000 pounds of towing capacity. Each tow bar stows on the back of a motorhome, has self-locking legs and features easy grip T-handles making it easier to hook and unhook from towed vehicles. Westervelt says the fact those tow bars are made of aluminum means they are lighter in weight (both NSA tow bars weigh 40 pounds), making them easier to handle. "Although this is changing, historically we have been dealing with an older clientele for the most part," he says. "Weight is an issue. So, anything you can do to cut weight without sacrificing safety or functionality is significant." Both products also come with a limited lifetime warranty and can attach to a variety of baseplates. "Since we do not manufacture base plates, it comes ready to fasten to all the brands base plates out there," Westervelt says. "It's just a good, all-around top quality tow bar. "I just spent 6-1/2 years redesigning that product, and in my opinion, it's about as good as it can possibly get, as far as quality and craftsmanship," Westervelt adds. NSA RV Products also makes the Atlas and Hercules steel tow bars, which share many of the same features and benefits as the Ready Brute products but which offer 12,000 pounds of towing capacity. (Like the Ready Brute Elite II, the Hercules incorporates the company's Ready Brake into the tow bar.) Tow Bars Can Pair with Supplemental Braking System While NSA's tow bars are notable in their own right, what really makes them stand out is their ability to pair with the company's NSA RV Products owner Tod Westervelt is pictured with one of his company's aluminum Ready Brute Elite II tow bars, which come fully integrated with NSA's Ready Brake auxiliary braking system. Westervelt touts his corrosion- resistant aluminum and steel tow bars as being best in class, while also offering the best value.
