I used this one on my conventional as it's fairly universal at 32 inches (I think that's the width, don't quote me on it)

However, on an RE I'm guessing you're probably going to need something custom fabricated. On my International RE buses the frame stops at the engine compartment, and there's a subframe there for the engine mounts and bumper. That subframe isn't really designed for tow weight so some custom fab work is in order. Not saying for sure that's how Bluebird did it, but that's how IC did.

Hopefully someone else will have done this before on a BB. Best of luck!
