Thanks for posting this, great photos. I will be using the same, Roadmaster Sterling. I have the Cherokee limited so expect it to look a little different with the chrome "mouth". I am still trying to figure out where to bring everything to get the coach set up with an SMI Airforce 1 and baseplates.
This will happen in April for me as my coach is tucked away in storage until then.
As for elegant, I am not sure if any brand is elegant. Way better than the old day. As you said, I also like the rock solid design of the Roadmaster. It does appear that the cross bar give more strength to the setup as the other brand do not have this.
I am also planning on using the Roadmaster tow defender and guardian for as much protection as possible for the Cherokee.
Ordered 12/21/13, arrived 2/7/14. Cashmere Limited, luxury, tow, sun roof, 6 cyl, AD 2. Being Towed behind a Holiday Rambler Navigator, 45 foot motorhome, Cummins IXS 600 HP.
