Tony's 1st Generation Tow Bar Bracket Setup
« on: October 20, 2017, 05:53:50 PM »
To whom it may concern,

I would like to know how many people would be interested in buying my tow bar bracket set up?

You must have an early style Ultravan.
  • It can NOT have angle braces that run all the away under the coach from the lower control arm pivot mounts to the other side.
(That style coach takes my second generation tow bar bracket setup and I'm NOT offering it at this time.)

Last week I had one person who might be interested in my (1st generation) Tow Bar Bracket setup.
I went to the machine shop yesterday for something else and was told that this item can come with a quantity discount.

I will be taking the original ones in to get the quote.
(Hopefully I will have prices by the end of the week at the latest. It all depends on how busy he is.)

(This will help save you money on shipping.)

( 4 ) Custom made Mounts

( 8 ) Spacers (protects aluminum from the steel)

( 4 ) Longer Grade 8 Bolts (for the lower control arm and new tow bar bracket mounts)

( 8 ) Washers

( 4 ) Grade 8 Nuts

( 4 ) Lock washers

NEXT 5 LINE ITEMS ARE OPTIONAL - if you want to do it yourself:

( 2 ) Braces

( 4 ) Smaller Bolts (for braces)

( 8 ) Washers

( 4 ) Grade Nuts

( 4 ) Lock washers

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO BUY and DO:  (I will walk you through how to finish it)

( 2 ) Square Tubing (cut to length and drilled for pins)

( 4 ) Pins

( 1 ) Angle iron cross piece (to size and mount how you want to)

( 2 ) Mounts for your tow bar (to be secured to the cross piece)


1. If you Are interest

2. Your Coach number

Thank you for your interest and support!

Hi Tony,

I just purchased 277 and have Dan Shelby (previous owner of 364) overhauling it. It's a 110 hp but he is going to rebuild it to a 140. I would be interested in your tow bar kit.
