Roadmaster Base Plates - 521567-1

Roadmaster's EZ Twistlock series brackets are virtually invisible, easy to mount and simple to remove. Brackets install on your vehicle's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar.


  • Hidden bracket design provides improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Drawbars are easily removable - just twist and pull
    • No pins or clips required
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • Compatible with Quick Disconnects and all Roadmaster tow bars
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA

The drawbars, or front arms, on the EZ series base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove, simply twist the arms back and pull them out. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

The baseplate for our 2013 Honda CRV is great and is barely noticeable. I had a local body shop install it and the installation only took them two hours. They said you could tell it was designed specifically for the vehicle and went together perfectly. The install only cost me $100.00 and was done professionally. This is a great product and looks terrific. 87999

Hitch base plate assembly was ordered and shipped on time. I called and asked questions pertaining to the kit for my 2013 Honda CRV and talked to a very well informed technical person. It has been installed, with no problems and fits as advertised.61828


Will this base plate fit a late 90s early 2000s Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar?

Do you have any more information on the tow bar? It is tough to say just by a year range. A model name or part number? Could you send some photos?

Installation went just like it was supposed to. Instructions were very good. Took me about 6 hours for the first installation. The second time would be probably 3 to 4. etrailer did an excellent job with the purchasing process and shipping. I especially like them providing the shipping status, from UPS, on their web site.123305

Very happy with product. Roadmaster installations instructions which we had, could be explained a little clearer on how to release clips to remove front facia, rather that pull carefully, on our 2014 Honda CRV.117409

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

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

The product was received a day prior to the promised date in good condition. Etrailer's price was significantly lower than the manufacture's price plus you shipped immediately whereas the mfg was backordered I'm passing your web site to my friends and guests at Lake Timberlin Camp Resort.58467

Pretty amazing... I placed an order after lunch on a Sunday. In less than 3 hours, I had a confirmation that it was in stock, and was waiting for UPS to pick it up. UPS had it to my front door by early afternoon on Wednesday. Who could ask for more?53567

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, I checked with Roadmaster and base plates # 521567-1 are listed as a fit for the 2014 Honda CR-V, all models, but excluding models that have a brushguard or extra bumper trim package.
