The lighter aluminum ones sometimes fail (snap right at the yoke in the motorhome receiver when on heavy bumps after years of use).

With blue ox all steel, you'll spend more up front, less in the long run if you plan to RV many years, and a steel blue ox won't break on you (keep your tow bar angle within specs though). Use a drop or gain receiver extension on the motorhome if you need it, to get the tow bar angle almost level.
What is the cost of the blue ox setup?
