As you drive the motor home away, the arms will self-extend, center and automatically lock. Towing can't get much simpler than this.

NonBinding

Non-Binding Tow Bar

Release your towed vehicle with the flip of a switch in any terrain. Roadmaster's Freedom Latch disconnects the first time, every time, releasing your car even when it is at a hard angle or out of level with the tow bar. No more binding!



Quick Disconnect

Quick Disconnects

Standard on most RoadMaster models, quick disconnects make it a snap to attach your tow bar. Their unique design lets you connect the tow bar to the bracket quickly and easily all by yourself and disconnect it the same way. These convenient brackets also make it simple to mount any number of RoadMaster accessories, from basic safety cables to the Guardian rock shield.



Built-In Cable Guide

Because safety cables and wires all too often tangle and drag, and wrapping them around your tow bar before every use is just no fun, RoadMaster has introduced built-in routing channels for their all-terrain models. Now you can tow with confidence, knowing that your cords and cables are safe and protected.



Storage Latch

Storage Latch

A feature unique to Roadmaster's All Terrain models, the patented Storage Latch makes it easy to stow your tow bar quickly and securely. Just fold the Blackhawk toward your motor home and it automatically locks in place.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bars RM-422 Review

Today we're going to review part number R-M-4422. This is the Roadmaster Blackhawk two all-terrain tow bar. This tow bar has a 10,000 weight capacity. This tow bar will allow you to safely and effectively tow your vehicle behind your RV. Basically these quick disconnects will be attached to your vehicle. This would attach to the it's a hitch mount tow bar. It'd attach to the hitch of your RV or motorhome. This is the all-terrain model.

It features the freedom latch, which is these latches on each arm here for quick and easy disconnect in any environment. Basically this will allow you to disconnect the first time, every time by releasing your car even when it's at a hard angle or out of level with the tow bar. There's no more binding of one of the arms. The telescoping arms will hook up with ease and automatically center and lock as you drive ahead preventing sway and making hookup quick and easy. If you'll notice on the side of each one of these arms, there is a built-in cable guide which will protect the wires like electrical wires and your safety cables from getting damage from hanging down or getting tangled. It enhances the look of your tow bar. This tow bar has a dropped forged steel yoke, has the super weld steel alloy arms to provide superior strength.

It does have the quick disconnect system which lets you quickly and easily mount and remove the tow bar on your own. This tow bar is large enough that it can tow a lot of your full-size vehicles like the Surburbans, the Hummers, the Excursions. This part is made in the USA. On this quick disconnect system, I just want to show you basically what you'll do is to disconnect it from your car; you just pull out the pin. You'll see this is the quick disconnect that is attached to the base plate of your vehicle. We'll do the same over here. You can see the quick disconnect comes off.

This straight base assembly is still on there. You can leave this on the tow bar if you want or you can leave it on the car. If you get into your camping spot and you just want to disconnect the whole thing, what you can end up doing is leave the disconnects and the tow bar assembly attached. What you can do is just disconnect the arms of the tow bar. If we pull that pin out; and then the same way over here if you pull this pin just like that and this tow bar assembly you could actually leave hooked to these quick disconnects on your vehicle. If you just want to store your arms, what you could do is you go ahead and push these in just like that; slides in very easily.

You might want to just compress them together. What you want to do is go to the end here. You'll notice there's this latch that's sticking up. This is your storage latch. This will automatically lock this tow bar in place when you fold it up toward your RV or motorhome provides a effortless and secure storage. Basically this part right here would be on your RV or motorhome. What you want to do is just go ahead and fold this right up. You'll notice as you push it, that will lock onto that big allen bolt head right here. It keeps this up against your RV or motorhome. When you go to attach it, you just pull this down, pull the latch down and then push down on it. You can lower your arm back down and hook it up to your quick disconnect assembly; very quick and easy operation. This does come with a one year limited warranty. This tow bar does work with all your Roadmaster vehicle-specific base plates like the E-Z model, the E-Z two, the M-S, the M-X, X-L, and the standard. That should do it for the review on part number R-M-422, the Roadmaster Blackhawk two all-terrain tow bar. .

Well made, beefy product. Nice finishes on exterior. It arrived quickly via UPS with slight packaging damage but the contents were undamaged. A protruding bolt worked its way through the box. Hook up to the towed vehicle MX style removable base plates was straightforward once the vehicle position was close. This is the first towbar I have used, but I can't imagine one being easier to use. My first outing was approx. 175 miles each way. The towed vehicle tracked nicely and smoothly. Unhooking the vehicle at the destination was equally easy even on an unlevel alignment with the motorhome. My only complaint is that the safety cables would not fit through the cable channels to keep the cables out of harms way. The cable are Roadmaster products so I feel there should have been some acknowledgment regarding this. 171246

Received the item in less than 5 shipping days. Looks like it will be a great Heavy duty Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 10,000 LB tow bay for my Tundra. Best price I found on the web and with the discount code and free shipping. It was a very fair deal. i HAVE DONE 3 ORDERS SO FAR WITH ETRAILER AND HAVE BEEN VERY HAPPY WITH THEIR CUST.

Great heavy duty tow bar. Nicely made. My only complaint was that I purchased a base plate kit that does not need the tow bar cross support, but I did not see a version without it. It must add to the cost as it is a very complex weldment, but now I have a heavy piece of steel that is of no use to me. 175812

  • Complete Flat Towing Package Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • To tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with your motorhome there are several things that you will need. You will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. The tow bar installs on your motorhome and then connects to the base plates on your Jeep. I was able to find that your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a gross vehicle weight of up to 6500 pounds, so a tow bar that is rated for this weight that I recommend is the Roadmaster Blackhawk...

  • Tow Bar Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK
  • The price difference between the Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar, # BX4325, and the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar, # RM-422, is basically due to the fact that the Blackhawk 2 is a heavy-duty steel tow bar designed to flat tow full-size trucks and SUVs. The Aladdin is a lightweight aluminum tow bar designed to tow mid-size vehicles like your 2012 Jeep Wrangler. For your situation, I recommend using the Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar for a few reasons.

  • Recommended parts for Flat Towing a 2003 Chevy Avalanche
  • First, you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if your 2003 Chevy Avalanche can be flat towed. Some models require special parts (such as a transmission lube pump or drive shaft coupling). If you find your model can be flat towed, you will need to start with base plates. For a 1500, use Roadmaster XL Base Plates, # 199-5. For a 2500, use # 3112-1. If your truck came with a brushguard, the base plates will not fit unless the brushguard is removed. Next you will...

The Roadmaster MX base plates, # 3154-3, are generally considered more heavy duty and are recommended for trucks and SUVs.

  • Troubleshooting Excessive Tire Wear on a 2007 Ford Focus when Being Towed by a Motorhome
  • There are several possible causes for the severe tire wear you are seeing on your Ford Focus. First, if the tow bar is not level with the RVs it can put extra stress (downward force in this case) on the front of the Focus. That extra force can lead to not only tire wear but also potentially damage the tow bar and base plates. Make sure that you have the steering on the Focus unlocked so that it is free to turn when being towed. If the steering is locked, it will cause severe tire wear...
