RBR50 - 2 Routers

 I have an RBR50 today with one satellite station at my home. At another location, an apartment, I have Cox service where I'm renting a modem/router. I'm wondering if I can get a compatible Orbi modem/router at the 2nd location so I don't pay a rental fee, then later on when I leave that location use it at my home as another satellite station, disabling the modem/router features. Any ideas?

Check with your ISP first to see if they support BYOM and if so, check there supported cablem modem list to see what if offically supported on there network system then buy accordingly. 

My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80(Modem Mode)>RBK853 v3.2.16.6(Router Mode)

Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, RBK853, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111

You state that your using cox service. The CBK40 is compatible with Cox. The only downside is that you can't use the cbk40 and rbr50 at the same time (without disabling cbk40's routing function and using it only as a modem). The satellites are all interchangeable but not the main units.
