I have sold over 40 tow bars at this point and have only heard from about five people about their performance. If you bought a tow bar from me post how you feel about it. Good, bad, things that could be improved or whatever. Even tell me how you feel about how I did handling your orders. Thanks

I bought one of your first towbars that you did. You know the ones when you didnt have your jig made yet. We had a problem with the first one not fitting and you sent a new one out to me at no charge. Even covered the shipping cost. I am still having troubles towing a bus with a brake booster. Very pleased with your bars though. I used one from Texas to Illinois 1,000 miles with no problems.

Are theses bars just for splits or do they work for Bays as well?

The tow bars work on both splits and baywindows. Great heavy duty bars well worth the money.

Hey Dan, I remember that one. What type of trouble? Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, that was tow bar prototype #1 with zero rise and a hitch ball that was way too high. Thats why I started putting the rise in them. It would have worked better with a lower drop hitch on the tow vehical. I have built a new club tow bar since then. Although Ian still has Ole #1.

I bought one of Jeremy's tow bars...
My only complaint is that it is HUGE, but it works great. I have pics using it to tow away my old bus to the junk yard.
I don't think that there is a way to make it smaller without compromising quality, but it is a nice thought.
I give Jeremy two greasy thumbs up for his work.

I bought one. The first time I tried to use it, it didn't fit over the axle and had to be sepated a little, but no big deal. The second time I used it as we turned a corner it broke where the two arms become one. Tow vehicle went one way the bus went another, big problem. I wrote to you about the problem but never got a reply. Needless to say I'm not to happy.

I bought one and shipped it to the UK. Jeremy was helpful and shipped in a timely manner. I told Jeremy the wrong hitch size due to poor measuring on my part, so I have to remove this and replace with a larger one - Again MY FAULT. The workmanship looks good, but I think I will add extra gusseting and safety chains - Just for my peace of mind.

I'm sorry to hear that. This is the first I have heard about it. Did you try to call my home # or email me directly? Did you unlock the steering lock when towing? I sent you a PM. I would like more info.

Keep in mind that the bars that Jeremy is selling are used to tow a bus, not tow with a bus.
