On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


Very good product at a great price. Instructions and video are for a 2013 terrain and things were a bit different on my 2015. When all screws and clips are removed the front piece cannot be just pulled forward. There is a rear facing clip and you have to pull to the side to remove from this piece. (pics attached)There was no PS cooler attached in front on mine. Remove washer bottle totally which consists of 2 nuts and 1 bolt otherwise you will never get back up plate for top brackets in. If you remove horns it also makes installing the top brackets much easier. 188383

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


Very happy with this product. Installation was pretty easy. I see no reason to pay someone to install this. True you have to take the bumper off and a large metal support beam but it was pretty easy. You just have to take it slow and not get frustrated. The bumper on the Honda Fit is held on with a gazillion little plastic clips and snap joints. Everything fits tight on a Honda so you have to be patient. My only complaint is they don't give you the exact torque settings. I had to consult a shop manual to get the correct torque values. They give a table at the end of the instructions that gives common torque values for various bolt sizes. I thought that was lame they could have given the correct value from the shop manual. Certainly not enough to lower my rating. This bar is awesome and when the drawbars are removed the base plate is almost completely hidden. My wife wanted nothing to show on the front of the car. She was very pleased with it. In the picture attached the bar is almost completely hidden. All you see are two small black circles. It takes about 2 seconds to mount the drawbars, just twist and go. VERY sturdy. I tow my Honda behind the motorhome with confidence. 80709

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


Thanks to the staff at etrailer they pointed me in the right direction for the base plate I needed for 2014 Honda CR-V that match up with my Roadmaster tow bar. After some thought and checking around for installation prices and reviewing the etrailer video I would save about $700.00 on labor doing it myself. Being backyard mechanic in my younger days what did I have to loose!!!! Took my I pad out to the shop so I could review each step by step as I took apart. I'm telling you I don't think I could have done it without the video. The paper instructions and pictures are ok but no comparison to someone walking through on video. I might make only one comment on the video, where the front bumper attached to front fenders it didn't show how they come apart. After a little probing in the seam I could feel some clips about one inch apart (three of them )taking small screw driver pushing down on them and pulling on bumper at same time to release (same type clip but smaller than what's under the headlights ) Sorry guy's I should have taken a picture of that maybe etrailer can come up with one. To all who may be a little mechanically inclined look at the video's and go for it. A special thanks to etrailer & staff for taking the time to help the customer keep making those videos I'll keep buying. 172684

Received both of our orders in just a few days. With the help of our 2, 21 year old grandsons, we were able to install our base plate in about 4 hours. If we ever have to do it again, we should be at least an hour faster. This is do able. Thanks for the prompt service and the excellent instructions. 93185

We havent experienced any problems with the base plate. On our way to Fl, E of Dallas-Ft. Worth a semi traveling ahead of us in the left hand lane, blew a trailer tire. With no where to go, a chuck went under our truck and did some damage to the cowling on the CRV. But, that was all that happened. We have only towed the car once, I guess we like it in FL, we renewed our work contract.

Purchased the towing adapter for my GMC Terrain a few week ago, received it on time & boxed not damaged. Watched the videos’ about three time on how to do it myself and started one evening and finished it the next morning about three hours with Beer Breaks, LoL. All the parts fix perfectly, had no problems with any of the parts, Product is real sturdy and if you don’t know where to look at the bumper you will not see the hide away receiver brackets. Very nice product, do it yourself and save Up loading two photos if it will let me one is with hide away brackets installed and the other one you can see is my complete tow bar attached to the hide away brackets 200736

Doug, just purchased a 2014 Cadillac srx 4 looking for base plates which you have. Now I have a roadmaster falcon tow bar that I tow my jeep wrangler with, will I have to change anything besides the new base plates to tow the SRX ???

comment by: Henry R - 06/05/2014

I have checked with our contacts at Roadmaster and in addition to the EZ Base Plate kit that is confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Cadillac SRX, you will need a set of the Quick disconnect plates # RM-222
Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnects - Car Side Only
$39.95
to connect with your Falcon Tow Bar. These will mount to your Cadillac base plate and will connect to your Falcon Tow Bar crossbar. These quick disconnects will allow you to easily change from towing your Jeep to your Cadillac. In addition to your tow bar and base plates, please make sure that you have all the necessary components needed for a complete flat towing system for your Cadillac like: safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Depending on how you have things set up for your Jeep you maybe able to transfer all of these components to your Cadillac.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


Sequence of events can aid in easier installation. 1. Problem: I found threading the bolts into the weld nuts that are located on the bars that slide into the frame was very difficult. Solution: I took off the baseplate and chased the threads with a 1/2 - 13 tap to clear out the powder coat paint and the bolt easily threaded in by hand. 2. Problem: When I tried to get the base plate bolted on, I did the front facing bolts first then tried to align the slide in 3/4" bolts next. I couldn't get them in. I read a review where someone had to grind the frame to get the slide bolts to align. There had to be a better way without modification. Solution: When the front cowell has been removed and the baseplate is hand held in position on the FIT, thread the 3/4" head bolts into the slide in brackets BEFORE putting the 12 mm bolts into the brackets that face forward. In my case the bolts went in without any difficulty. If you follow my suggestion you too can avoid grinding. 34374

It has been working perfectly on the 2012 jeep liberty. In fact, the baseplate I used on my previous vehicle jeep grand cherokee was more difficult to connect and disconnect than this new style push in and rotate to lock into place. For whatever reasons this new style baseplate is faster connect and faster disconnect than the previous style.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


Amazing customer service, very fast shipping, a good shopping experience overall. The installation instructions for my 2000 VW Jetta TDI were pretty good but not totally accurate. The passenger side base plate didnt quite fit right and had to be tweaked quite a bit in order to get it to match and align with the drivers side. I got it to work out, but I suggest taking your time making sure of the accurate placement of both baseplates before doing ANY drilling into the frame. Also, the passenger side, once installed, make it difficult to reinstall the intercooler, and the air duct needs to be trimmed way back in order to fit again. It's installed now and works great, but it was more challenging than I anticipated. Take your time, take a lot of measurements, and you'll get it! I'm. happy with the finished product! 188143

Installed on 2005 mini cooper convertible. Choose this base plate for our mini since it provided highest attachment height for tow bar (12 inches off ground, only requires 3 inch drop from back of RV), and attaches to mini frame more substantially that blue ox. Installation directions are nearly perfect, we had to widen holes on passenger side to line up with frame. Modification was approved by Roadmaster. 195240

The installation on this was surprisingly quick on my 2011 Fit (base/non-sport version). Everything fit well (no pun intended). A few minor changes over the video as my car was slightly different: - I didn't have to trim anything on the air dam -- the tubes lined up perfectly with the slots on my grill. - There was a in the wheel on each side where the plastic bumper meets the steel body panel. I didn't realize they were there (they're hidden somewhat) so I ended up cracking the hole this screw was in, but everything came back together nice and tight anyway. 48006

Base plate was delivered on time and in good condition. Directions were very clear and fairly easy to install. My son helped me.Its easier with 2people. The light kit was also easy. We ran the 4 flat wire through the firewall driver side .We found a rubber gromet near the top and popped out. We ran the wire under the plastic trimon bottom of door all the way to compartment for jack to tailight assembly. We drilled hole in bottom circle of light to accept light and then under rear bumper and up other side to right assembly.Wired according to instructions. They work great. I like the ease of taking the hitch off when not in use. Thank you for everything. 134468

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


This is my second Roadmaster baseplate to install on a Honda CRV. The first, a 2009 used the XL and this 2013 uses an EZ. Installation was as described in the, well illustrated directions. It took me about 3 hours. New cars with soft plastic parts might be better than older models with brittle plastic. Once installed I felt the XL baseplate on the old car was easier to use because I could slide the tow unit on in one piece. With the EZ, I have to separate the bar from the arms, twist each arm in, and then place the bar across. This adds complexity to assembly and disassembly. 89460

I called in the afternoon and the lady said it wood shipped that day which is normally not the case. But it was shipped that very day. The other thing I had called Road Master and they had gave me the part # for the rubber caps that goes on the end of the hitch which the order lady said wasn't right. She put me on hold and called Road Master and she came back and Road Master had gave me the number for the 1 1/4" instead of the 1 1/2" that I needed. Now that is what I call good service. I sorry I forgot her name but she deserves a Atta boy. Thanks again for the great service 201622

I took my time and carefully read everything prior to performing the installation. I was finished in under 4 hours. I could easily do the same installation in 2 hours now that I've gone through it. All the necessary parts were included in the kit along with a couple of spare nuts, washers, etc. Great experience. Product works as advertised. 104537

The installation when well. The only issues are: 1. The directions do not tell you how to unbolt the front fascia from the fenders (drivers/passengers) side. It required unbolting 2 bolts on each fender. 2. Need to put a note in the instructions to have a step drill bit for the front bumper core. This metal was very hard and I used up 12 drill bit before I went to the store to get one for hardened metal. Other than that the items went together very well and have already tested the tow bar. 101083

Base Plate went in without any problem. The on-line video helped tremendously especially when removing the plastic bumper. A little more information could have been prided on disconnecting the fog lights on the Sports model of the Honda Fit. But I was able to take out a few more screws and get access to the plugs. The base plate is barely visible and I love the twist and lock feature on the base plate. Much better than the old pins and clevis on older base plates. 121119

Great Product-hard to install Installation took about 4-6 Hrs. The most difficult part was drilling the 4 half inch holes in the bumper. The sq. tube that forms the internal bumper is made of a vary hard steel (spring steel??) I went thru 3 or 4 drills. they should have recommended drill types in the instructions. I found that carbide tipped drills worked the best. When using this type, do not run the drill at high speed and use some oil on the drill bit. 3479

The installation went well and everything fit as best as you could expect on a unibody vehicle. I only found one issue with my Terrian SLT, on step 7 it states there are 4 bolts on the bumper and mine only had three. Not an issue until you install reciever brace on step 8 and find out the 4th hole in step 7 that didn't have a bolt in it is not threaded. The bolts that you took out in step 7 are self threading. So I used one of them and it worked out great. 7230

Not an easy task of course. I've done a 2006 Liberty once before, so I was somewhat familiar with the installation. The directions were great and installation went well. Only the finder flare rivets were a problem because I did not have a plastic rivet tool and there were none available near here. I had to use vise grips, a pair of pliers with a small grip hole at the end and a foot. Gotter done, Thanks for the prompt delivery. Dan 46740

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ in Base Plates


first class company etrailer! Purchased base plate on 8/21 and it was delivered on 8/26 at 1:00PM; by 2:30PM installation was complete! This is a simple installation and the 521190-1 matched my Honda Fit Sport 2009 perfectly. "Life is Good"!! 2304

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Ram EcoDiesel Behind a Motor Home
  • I spoke with my contact as Roadmaster and 2014 Rams with the EcoDiesel are not exactly the same as other models where the base plates mount so they will not fit. But I have great news, Blue Ox has base plates that will fit EcoDiesel models. For a 1500 ST, Sport, Laramie Limited, or Express use # BX2409. Or for non-Sport models use # BX1986. For either set of base plates I recommend the Aventa tow bar # BX7445. It is rated for 10,000 pounds and comes with safety cables. For lighting,...

  • Is an Axle Disconnect Required for a Vehicle to Be Towed if it is a Manual Transmission
  • The accepted rule on manual transmission vehicles is that if it is in neutral it should be fine to be flat towed. With that being said, you should still consult the owners manual of your 2014 Ram 1500 to see if there are restrictions for your vehicle for flat towing. There are several companies that do axle-disconnects, but we don't unfortunately carry them. The RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes # RM-2000-1 would be an excellent choice for your truck as long as it weighs less...

  • 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Will Not Shift Out of Neutral After Being Flat Towed
  • I located an online copy of the owner's manual for the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and checked the section regarding flat towing. On page 617 of this online manual there is a warning that the 2-wheel-drive version cannot be flat towed because damage to the drivetrain will result; the 2WD model also cannot be dolly towed with the front wheels off the ground, only with the rear wheels off the ground. 4-wheel-drive models can be flat towed if the manual shift and electronic shift transfer...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Ram 1500 Big Horn
  • The front end of your 2013 Ram 1500 Big Horn is the same as the non-Sport models of the Ram so for a base plate kit for your truck you would want the # 52289-1. This will work well with your Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520 as long as the weight of your truck is under 6,000 lbs. Otherwise you would need to upgrade the tow bar to the Roadmaster Blackhawk part # RM-422 as it has a 10k capacity. From the research I did the weight of your truck is right under 6k, so you might verify that it...

  • Can Base Plates be Installed on a 2012 Ram 1500 with Brushguard Already Installed
  • Unfortunately, the base plates for the 2012 Ram 1500 require a stock configuration meaning the brushguard you have would have to be removed to be able to install them. Since you want to keep the brushguard in place the best solution is to use a trailer to tow the Ram instead of flat towing it. If you decide to go ahead and remove the brushguard then the base plates # 52289-1 are compatible with the StowMaster tow bar # RM-501 as long as the truck weighs less than 6,000 pounds. If the...

  • For an EZ base plate kit confirmed to fit your 2015 Ram 1500 you would want the Roadmaster base plate kit part # 52289-1. For this vehicle Roadmaster does not offer an EZ-4 or EZ-5 base plate kit.
