Currie Tow Bar Mounting Plate

I am going to be towing my Sahara behind a motor home. I have a Blue Ox tow bar and was going to use a Blue Ox base plate, but then found this:

Currie Enterprises Tow Bar Mounting Plate-RH3

Does anyone have any experience towing their Jeep using this mounting plate?

I just bought a 2011 JK Sport to tow behind my motorhome and I use a blue ox aventa tow bar. Instead of a Blue Ox base base plate, I bought the Currie Mount. I have not installed it but it appears to be easier from the instructions than the Blue Ox Plate. I think it will look better than the Blue OX plate and it also acts as a front skid plate. Lastly, it was only $199 compared to $360 for the Blue Ox.

Hope someone on this forum has mounted one and can provide insight. Thanks

I have used Blue Ox base-plates on all of my toad Jeeps and really like them. In fact, I moved the plate from my 2007 to my 2011 so I am definitely getting my money's worth out of it. I honestly have never seen or heard of Currie but they look good and the price is definitely reasonable. Let us know if you buy and install. I might be interested for next time.

Do you have any idea what gauge steel the Currie is?
