Fast, Easy Hookup

This Roadmaster tow bar has a large hookup radius to ensure simple, secure hookup. What this means is that, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV, you will still be able to make the necessary connections. To achieve this, the BlackHawk 2 has stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently. In addition, these arms are able to pivot in and out, changing the spread. So, if your car is angled a bit behind your RV, you'll still be able to hook up by bringing the arms closer together and staggering the length so that 1 arm is longer than the other, allowing it to reach the more distant base plate.


The fact that the arms are extra-long also allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motor home and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motor home without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.


Quick-Disconnect

When using EZ, XL, or Classic base plates, quick-disconnects make it a snap to attach the tow bar to your vehicle. Other methods require you to maneuver each tow bar arm individually and perfectly line up tabs on the arms with tabs on your base plates. Roadmaster's unique design lets you connect and disconnect the tow bar quickly and easily, all by yourself.


The quick-disconnect brackets come in separate pieces. The pieces that are positioned on the ends of each tow bar arm interlock with matching brackets that attach to your Roadmaster base plates. Sandwiched between the tow bar arms is a sturdy crossbar that essentially turns the arms into a single structure. This crossbar allows you to lower the tow bar as a single piece onto the quick-disconnect brackets on your towed car so that you don't have to connect each arm separately. When lowering the tow bar onto the brackets, make sure that the tab on each bracket lines up with the hole in the matching bracket. Then just insert the linch pins through the holes in the tabs on top to secure the brackets together. To remove the tow bar, simply remove the pins and lift the tow bar off of the brackets. These convenient brackets also make it simple to mount any number of Roadmaster accessories, from basic safety cables to the Guardian rock shield.


Quick-Disconnect

If you have MS, MX, or EZ5 base plates, the arms will connect directly to the base plates. Just remove the quick-disconnect brackets from the ends of the arms and you will be left with lugs that fit into the base plate brackets. Once the lugs are set inside of the brackets, simply insert the included pins to secure them in place.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Freedom Latch

The Freedom Latch makes disconnecting this tow bar a breeze. This latch makes it easy to release the tension that can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed car are not perfectly lined up. Just flip the latch to release the pressure, and the arms will be able to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates. This allows you to disconnect even when you're at a hard angle or out of level.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This BlackHawk 2 All-Terrain tow bar has been subjected to rigorous physical and computerized testing to ensure that it meets Roadmaster's exceptionally high standards. Throughout the design process, Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) is done. Each of these tests display a 3-dimensional image of the tow bar while it is put under thousands of pounds of pressure. Areas of stress in the tow bar can then be located and studied so that those areas can be strengthened. This process is repeated until any weak spots, particularly those found in load-bearing components, are completely removed. The result is a durable, strong, and safe product.


Simple, Secure Storage

Storage LatchStored on RV

The BlackHawk 2 All Terrain can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when not in use. After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Fold the tow bar up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically lock it in place.


Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.


There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.


FlatTowing Components

The tow bar links your towed car to your motor home. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motor home in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motor home's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motor home are activated, preventing wear on the motor home and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

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

I used this tow bar to tow my 2013 Honda CR-V behind my motor home. This is a 10,000 lb bar that I used only because the 6000 lb bar was not available at the time of my need. The bar is very easy to install and hook up. The car does not have to be level or straight with the tow vehicle. Once hooked up a small left right movement of the two vehicles as you start moving locks the tow bar in place. Very easy to use. 260492

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

  • If your 2010 Winnebago is built out of a Ford E-350 or E-450, then the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 65053 will fit and you should not have to remove the bumper. However, it cannot be used to tow the RV behind another vehicle. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you do have the E-350 RV cutaway model and it has the same sub-frame as the regular E-350, and you are looking to tow it behind another vehicle, you can use Roadmaster MX Base Plates, # 446-13. The...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Ford F-150 STX Behind a Motor Home
  • The Roadmaster Falcon 5350 tow bar will work with the XL base plates # 495-1A on your 2014 Ford F-150 STX. No adapter will be needed. But this tow bar is rated for a maximum of 5,000 pounds. If your truck is heavier then you will need to use a different tow bar. The Falcon 2, # RM-520, is rated for 6,000 pounds. The Blackhawk 2, # RM-422, is rated for 10,000 pounds. In addition to the tow bar and the base plates you will also need safety cables if you do not have some already. For...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 GMC Sierra 3500HD 4WD
  • For a base plate kit for your 2012 GMC Sierra 3500HD 4WD truck I would recommend the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 3167-1, I will send you a separate email with a pdf of the installation instructions for this product for you to check out. This base plate kit would work well with the RoadMaster Blackhawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-422 that you referenced. To complete your towing setup you will also need safety cables, # BX88197 and a lighting kit such as # C-ATL20A. And finally,...

  • Which is Better, Flat Towing a Vehicle or Using a Tow Dolly
  • I would go with a tow dolly over flat-towing as long as the owners manual of your 2013 Lincoln MKS says there are no restrictions on using a tow dolly. Tow dollies might cost a little more, but you save yourself a lot of time over having to install the components needed for flat towing. Which by the time you pay someone to do the cost wouldn't be that far off. With a tow dolly everything needed is included with the upfront cost of it and it's basically ready to go once its delivered. Tow...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Ford F-150 4x4 Behind an Dump Truck
  • Since your 2007 Ford F-150 4x4 has a manual transfer case and not the electronic shift on the fly feature, you can flat tow the truck. But, you will want to confirm this by consulting the vehicle owners manual for the proper towing procedure. You will first want to install base plates on the truck. I recommend using XL style base plates # 495-1A because there are a lot of compatible tow bar options for the XL style plates. For a tow bar, you you will be using a pintle hitch and want...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1996 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck Behind a Motor Home
  • I am glad you emailed us because there are some things that you need to be aware of. First, the Tow Ready tow bar, # 63180 is only rated for 5,000 pounds and your 1996 Chevy Silverado could easily exceed this capacity. The other problem with the tow bar is that it is only rated for a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour. We need to get you a proper set up. The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the truck owners manual to determine if it can be flat towed and if so what...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2015 Ram 1500 4x4
  • To flat tow your 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 you will need a base plate, tow bar, safety cables, towed vehicle wiring, and a supplemental braking system. When I checked the owner's manual, the 4x4 model can be towed 4 down, but you will want to check the manual for the steps that need to be taken to flat tow your Ram 1500. The base plate I recommend for your Ram 1500 is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1986. The Blue Ox base plate features removable draw armsto help maintain the look of your vehicle...

  • Complete Tow Bar System for 2000 Dodge 3/4 Ton
  • My recommendation for towing your 2000 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton 4x4 pickup with a diesel would be the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 All-Terrain Non-Binding Heavy Duty Tow Bar, 10,000 lbs, part # RM-422, and the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit, part # 249-6. This tow bar and base plate kit are especially designed to tow vehicles with heavy duty frames and the tow bar installs easily into a 2 inch receiver hitch. You will need to be careful of the amount of weight you put in the pickup due to the weight...

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a Ford F-150
  • Flat towing a vehicle requires a number of components including the tow bar and base plates, which are vehicle-specific. The items required, in addition to the tow bar and base plates for the towed vehicle, are safety cables, a lighting/wiring kit to operate the toad's lights and a supplementary braking system (required by law in most states). For use with the Blackhawk 2 tow bar I suggest you stay with Roadmaster base plates. You can use part # 495-1A for the 2004 F-150. These base...
