unnamedRespondents in Trailer Life’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Survey picked Blue Ox’s tow bars as their No. 1 choice in the tow bar products category and earned the company the Gold Award.

“As manufacturers and suppliers of RV products, it’s easy sometimes to get bogged down with budgets, market shares and marketing issues so we often might loose site of what we are really doing–and that’s providing useful products to real people,” said Blue Ox President and CEO Ellen Kietzmann in a press release. “Earning this recognition from real RVers, however, brings it back into sharp focus. Everyone at Blue Ox is so proud and appreciative to receive this award and the recognition from those who buy and use our products.”

Trailer Life’s Reader Choice Awards are a result of thousands of RV owners participating in an online survey that encompasses over 100 brands in 20 product categories.
