Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


The Real Story - The real story regarding what it takes to install the base is that it takes about 4 hours and . . - You will need a small sledge hammer to pound the unit into the frame cross tube such that the attach points are solid against the frame and align properly at the center point bottom of the frame. - You will need to remove the wheels to gain access to the side of the vehicle’s frame for drilling the attach points. - You may need to jack the car up for ground clearance, to drill the bottom hole. - I had to cut an access hole through the bumper cover to get the backing plate into the frame channel. - You will need to pry off the frame mud guard, if your car has one. - You may need to make a ruler like metal shim to hold the back plate while you screw the bottom bolt. - A 6 ft pole lever is needed to force the front of the base down and thereby pivot the back flange up to align it to the slot like hole in the frame. This area is critical so make sure the hole you drill is match centered!! - Drill small attach point holes first to make sure you have sufficient clearance on the back side, for the large washers and proper hole alignment with the base flange - If it all goes well . . plan on a 4 hour job. - The base is a real beast and could haul a Mac Truck! - It is by far the easiest base to install, of any I evaluated. - Would you recommend etrailer.com to a friend? Oh hell yes! 137381

Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


The product was received as expected. The brackets aligned with all points and bolted up first time. The hardware was great, except two lock washer short (but not a problem as I had extras in my parts bins) and double the number of flat washers (extras for the next project). But is was great to have all optional bolts, washers and nuts supplied. Instructions were easy to follow and complete with one excepting. I need a bracket part from the old brackets and that was not included in the instructions, but was clear as I aligned everything in the pre assembly. 86945

The brackets have performed as expected, no problems or concerns.

Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


I purchased a small Geo Tracker to tow behind my RV. So I needed the mounts the would allow me to tow it safely. After serching on the internet, I decided to purchase the mounts from etrailer because of low price andsimple design. (Some of them are really large.) The product was received 2 days earlier than expected. It fit like a glove. After drilling the Frame (per Instructions) the mount is as solid as if it came from the factory. What a PHENOMENOL job your company does!!! I would HIGHLEY recommend your company to anyone that needs Towing products such as this. Thanks, Chuck Thomas 10011

Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


Thank you for very fast delivery of the base plate kit. Once installed, the tow bar fit perfectly. I had to remove the front tire to get to the spot to more easily drill the four holes needed to install the brackets. It would be helpful to see a drawing in the instructions to assure proper installation of bolts, washers, nuts, etc., in addition to the written instructions. With careful reading, I completed the installation but "a picture is worth a thousand words." Thank you for a well-made and well designed kit. 99286

Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


The base plates for my older geo tracker installed as the directions indicated they would and without any unwanted surprises.The plates themselves have quality welds as well as a good apperance. After installation was complete they were even in all perspectives.This product saved me from having to cut holes into the front plastic panels that would most likely not be replaceable.I will be more at ease while towing my tracker behind my motor home 10166

I haven't yet installed but I will say that the delivery was prompt and the package appears to be complete as necessary and promised. Everything in the box was well packaged to protect contents (pretty impressive considering that these contents probably don't actually need a whole lot of protection by nature). Thanks. 14004

Comments

Can these base plates be mounted if I have a winch on the front bumper? and do you use holes already in the bumper or have to drill new ones? can a Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow bar be connected to these mounts?Thanks Bob S.

comment by: Bob S - 01/03/2014

That is all dependent on how the bumper mounts to the vehicle, if it is an aftermarket bumper. If it is the factory bumper, then the bolt locations should be clear. The question then becomes, how wide is the winch and will it interfere with the face of the base plates. There is a link to the instructions on the base plate page, I have linked back to it below. Check out the instructions and they will show you how and where the base plates will mount.

Review from a similar Roadmaster Standard Base Plate Kit


The base plates installed very easily. No need to remove the bumper cover or any other parts to the car. However, the bolts on my tow bar are drilled 3 inches apart which is a bit wider than the bolt holes on the base plates and required extra drilling on my part. 79124

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow My 1991 Honda Civic

Just keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar, # RM-020, which is designed for towing long distances and more frequently.
