Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms - 2012 CR-V by Honda

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

Features:

  • 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 Honda CR-V
  • Compatible with Quick Disconnects and all Roadmaster tow bars
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included

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.

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?

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 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

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

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

I installed this base plate system on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited this weekend. My Jeep had tow hooks which were basically removed and replaced by the base plates in the same location. No modifications to the grill were required and the base plates are no more noticable than the tow hooks were. Installation was straight forward. Roadmaster forwarded a PDF file of the excellent color instructions with my order confirmation. I was able to view the photographs on my ipad and zoom in where necessary to get more detail. Overall I would rate the Roadmaster product, instructions and customer service 5 star in every way. 78276

Did you have to do any drilling on your vehicle to mount this system?

comment by: John B - 09/19/2013

Yes, there will be some drilling involved in the installation. Check the instructions link on the product page for more information about the drilling that will be required. I believe it will just be four 1/2 inch holes.

The Roadmaster baseplate and Falcon tow bar are working great with our 2014 Grand Cherokee and Endeavor motorhome. We are in the middle of a 1500 mile trip and have had no problems with the equipment. I have decided that I need to purchase a braking system for the Jeep. Thinking about the Invisi Brake, primarily because it is made by Roadmaster and I had a great experience with your companys customer service when the 2014 Grand Cherokee baseplate kit was being developed. Thanks for the good work.

Thanks for the follow up, very happy to hear that you are pleased with your Roadmaster Base plates. If you are considering the Invisibrake # RM-8700
Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System
$1,249.00
as a braking system this is a great choice. The installation is a long and involved process and if you are looking for a more simplified installation you might like another Roadmaster product such as the Even Brake # RM-9400
Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System
$1,249.00
. This will serve the same purpose as the Invisibrake, but the portable unit will have to be removed after flat towing your Jeep where the Invisibrake is permanently installed in your tow Jeep.

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

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

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

I ordered this online after talking to a rep who was very helpful. The product shipped right away. Installation instructions were detailed and provided excellent guidance for the installation on my 2013 Jeep Compass. 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

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 Rua - 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 Quick Disconnects - Car Side Only
$37.95
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.

I think your best option would be to use the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 521567-1. The removable arms...

  • What Baseplate Kit And Cover Will Fit a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • The base plate kit that fits a 2013 Honda CR-V is the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate kit part # 521567-1. The covers that fit Roadmaster EZ Base Plate is part # RM-210. When the base plate arms are removed when not in use, these inserts cap the ends and keep debris and dirt out of the receivers. The Roadmaster base plate kit you referenced was designed for the Jeep Wrangler and would require a different cap than the EZ base plate kit for your CR-V.

  • Parts Recommended to Flat Tow a 2012 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • First, you will want to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Honda because in the research I did I found that Honda does not recommend flat towing the 2012 CR-V. The LX model may be the one exception but you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual to be sure. For base plates you can use # BX2258 that you have referenced. The compatible tow bars for this base plate set do mount to the RV receiver. These types of tow bars are preferred because they offer a better ride and performance....

  • Can a 2012 Honda CR-V with Automatic Transmission be Flat-Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • Both the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2012 Honda CR-V with automatic transmission can be flat-towed behind a motor home. Honda cautions that before flat towing your CR-V transmission fluid level and condition be checked. If you will flat tow often or for long periods (8 hours or more at a time), then it is suggested to change your transmission fluid at shorter intervals than specified in the manual. It is also necessary to follow a pre-drive conditioning process...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V with a Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • For a base plate kit you would want the Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # 521567-1. This is the bracket kit that will install on your 2014 Honda CR-V that will provide an attachment point for your vehicle to a set of tow bars. The most popular tow bar with other 2014 Honda CR-V owners is the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar part # RM-520 that you have. This is an excellent tow bar and one of the nicest ones on the market because of its non-binding arms and the fact that it stores on the RV when...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home with a Stowmaster Tow Bar
  • The correct base plates for the 2014 Honda CR-V are # 521567-1 and they are compatible with the Stowmaster tow bar. The base plates you referenced, # 521190-1, are for a Honda Fit and would not work on your CR-V. The Honda CR-V is one of the more popular vehicles to flat tow. Just be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on flat towing it. In addition to the base plates and tow bar you will also need safety cables, # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The first thing you will need is a base plate kit to provide the attachment point between your 2014 Honda CRV and your Stowmaster Tow Bar.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • I would need to know what tow bar you have to determine which adapter you will need. There are several adapters available that depend on the model tow bar and the model of base plates you are using on the vehicle. If you have a Blue Ox tow bar you would not need an adapter if you used the Blue Ox base plates, # BX2258. Or if you have a Roadmaster tow bar you could use Roadmaster base plates # 521567-1. If you have some other tow bar or base plates, let me know what they are and I can...
