freeltm I've got the same brackets and I picked up a used Road Master Falcon 5250 towbar on Craigslist. The nicer towbar just makes hooking up a disconnecting a little easier. I used the cheap magnetic lights from harbor freight. Towed about 100 miles with my rv and it towed great. Didn't really even know it was back there. Good luck.

$60

the two rubber bumpers on your front bumper come off and the brackets fit the hole pattern. Just be sure that your tow vehicle has good brakes.

G8RDave Excellent! Thanks. Looks like I'll be swinging by my local U-Haul service center soon.
