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 Falcon 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 Falcon 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

Stored

The Falcon All Terrain can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when not in use.


Storage Process

After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, collapse the arms and push them together so that they are side by side. Then fold the arms up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically engage to hold the tow bar 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 Falcon 2 All-Terrain Non Binding Tow Bar Review

Today we are going to show you part number RM-522 from Roadmaster. This is the Roadmaster Falcon all terrain non binding tow bar, rated for 6000 pounds. A couple facts are that it comes with a non binding freedom latch that disconnects the first time every time. It also features an auto lock towing mechanism which allows both tow bars to extend or retract for a quick connection. Also if you drive away the arms will self center and automatically lock themselves together. The use of the stainless steel components allow for smooth and trouble free operation which prevents corrosion that will bind up moving parts. Now we will go ahead and install it in a typical 2 inch receiver hitch and show you some more features it has. This part number does come complete with the base bar and the tow bar itself. Also the base bar itself, the hardware it mounts to on your base plates on your vehicle it does come complete with the hardware to attach to that.

Now we will show you a typical application of a tow bar. It has 2 axis of movement. It has up and down and also left to right movement. And we will show you when it is time to disconnect your vehicle from the RV it is pretty simple. First off what you want to do is disconnect it from the base bar itself. And that is pretty simple by just undoing the snap pin here and pulling out the actual pin itself. At this point you would pull away your car. When you are not using it you can fold it up and store it on the RV and out of the way. All you have to do is lift up on the bar, fold it together, push it up, and this little bracket here will hold it in place and you leave it like so. Or you can fold it to either side to store it out of the way. When you do need to use it, you just unfold it and attach it back to your car. When you are ready to use your tow bar, to reverse the procedure pull this latch out of the way and extend your arms out. They do not have to be an even length either. The car does not have to be perfectly aligned with the adjust ability of the arms going left and right and independent movement of them. Plus with the telescoping effect you can get your car close to it then pull them up and adjust them from there. We have the base bar crooked so that your car does not have to be straight on. So you can go ahead and leave it just like that. So when you take off do a couple left and right turns and that will help center the tow bar and it will actually lock itself into place. Also built to the inside of these tow bars are extra guide rails on the outside that you can run your safety chains or electrical cords through. There you have it for part number RM-522 from Roadmaster, the Falcon all terrain non binding tow bar rated for 6000 pounds.

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well. I researched tow bars thoroughly before choosing the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain. Both Roadmaster and Blue Ox have excellent customer service departments and answered many questions before I decided to go with Roadmaster. The reason is simply my preference to have the extra stability of the cross bar and for future mounting of the Guardian rock shield. The Blue Ox tow bars are simpler because of no crossbar and that is nice and clean. But I like extra assurance and beefiness on the lateral torsion forces when towing. Just my preference. The Falcon unit is well made and heavy. The channels on the sides allow a neat installation of the wiring harness and safety cables. Pulls my Honda CRV with no noise and easy to hook and unhook. I would recommend this product to anyone. 234533

Jeep


This item is great, saved our Jeep. Had the hitch on with the Jeep and got rear ended. The hitch absorbed most of the hit and the Jeep was relatively unscathed. The hitch was bent like a pretzel but it still held together the Rv and the Jeep. The bar was bent beyond saving so I called Etrailer and they sent me a new one within two days so our vacation was not ruined. Thanks all and definitely recommend this hitch!! 154956

I installed it the day after I received it and it seems to tow very well. Took it for a test on local roads and an Interstate. I have been having some trouble unlatching one of the arms but it may be that I am simply unfamiliar with it and don't fully understand the process. The one arm does seem to be binding up a bit???? However, generally it seems well constructed and I'm looking forward to many great miles with it. Also bought a 6" drop hitch adapter. Works well getting our set up level between the toad and the motorhome. 185808

The Shank Assembly on our RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar was loose and showing signs of wear, so I ordered a replacement for it as the user's manual suggests. Etrailer didn't have one in stock but arrranged to have it drop shipped directly from the manufacturer in time for our next road trip. If you go this route, you will need access to a powerful impact wrench to remove and replace the nut on the main pivot bolt. You will also need a long armed 5/8 inch hex key. 34614

I really like the retractable arms on thi "all terrain" unit, makes installation & removal easy. The length and pivoting work great towing my 04 Honda CR-V, was able to follow fine when making as tight a turn as the RV could make. Also like the channels that keep the safety cables up. Shipping from eTrailer was fast and I recieved shipment notification and tracking numbers so I knew when to expect it. 223178

I had a roadmaster tow bar before and the car was ready to accept this tow bar, soothes was an extremely easy install. I found the website a bit difficult to use and called etrailer. The person who answered was very knowledgeable and pleasant and the transaction took only a few minutes. The parts were derived when they were suppose to be. A very good experience. I would use this site again. 248974

Seems to work pretty good. Only been able to use it twice. It came with two locks but no information on where to use the locks. Contacted the company about the locks. Their explanation wasn't very clear and they could provide no images of where the locks were to be used. Guess you have to guess! 28687


Comments

The locks are designed to replace the linchpins used to secure the quick-disconnect at the base plates. See the picture on part RM-302.

  • According to my contact at Roadmaster, there are two different stinger assemblies available for the Blackhawk 2. The # 910019-20B is black in color, and there is a # 910019-20C is charcoal in color. Either assembly would be the correct replacement part for your towbar.

  • Safety Cables for a Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar
  • The Falcon tow bar, # RM-522, has a channel to run the safety cables through so you will want to use straight safety cables like the 64 inch Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables, # RM-645. Safety cables are not included and must be purchased separately. We also have a towing combo kit, # RM-9243-2, that includes the safety cables and accessories needed for the RM-522 Falcon tow bar. Let me know if you need further assistance.

  • Difference between the Roadmaster Falcon and Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar for 2002 Honda CRV
  • For your 2002 Honda CRV with brush guard I would recommend XL Plate Roadmaster Base Plate, part # 1541-3. The MX base plate, part # 1541-5 is designed for heavier vehicles and does not require a crossbar, but a crossbar is required on the XL base plate, part # 1541-3. For a tow bar with this application, I would recommend part # RM-576, for your 2002 Honda CRV. Part # RM-576 has a capacity of 6,000 pounds, and is compatible with the XL Base Plate, part # 1541-3. Part # RM-576 already...

  • The Right Tow Package for a 2000 VW Beetle
  • The Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 521225-1 will fit your 2000 VW Beetle but you will have to remove the fog lights. For tow bars, I recommend the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 which has the convenient Autowlok locking mechanism and quick disconnects for effortless, one-person mounting and removal. And it is made to work with the recommended base plate. Another option is the RoadMaster Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522 which features the hassle-free Freedom Latch which lets...

  • How To Clean Tow Bar Arms On Roadmaster Tow Bar
  • I contacted Roadmaster about instructions on cleaning their tow bars. The representative at Roadmaster informed me that you will want to start by soaking the arms with a degreaser. Then, you will want to move the arms in and out and rinse off with water. After rinsing the arms, you will want to dry the arms thoroughly and finally spray a dry silicone spray on the arms. The representative at Roadmaster cautioned NOT to use WD-40. Also, if the rubber boots on your tow bar are torn or worn...

  • Recommended Flat-Towing Setup for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • The items you will need to flat tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee are base plates, tow bar, tow bar wiring and a brake controller is for towing a trailer with electric or electric/hydraulic brakes. For a flat towed vehicle, a supplemental braking system is needed. The base plates I recommend are the Roadmaster # 521440-1B as these will work with several versions of your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.

  • Base Plate Kit for Flat Towing a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4

  • Best Flat Towing Setup Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox flat towing setups are excellent choices that would work well on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In my personal experience with both systems I prefer the Blue Ox setups. Our installers feel the same way. The removable portions of the base plate kits are a bit easier to take off, and the tow bars seem to operate smoother. For a tow bar I would highly recommend the Blue Ox Aventa LX part # BX7445. This tow bar is the easiest to connect and disconnect on level...

  • Flat Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-150 STX-4x4
  • I checked with Roadmaster and the part # 495-1A that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F-150 STX so it would work well for you. The InvisiBrake part # RM-8700 that you referenced has also been confirmed to fit your vehicle. There is a Hopkins wiring harness that will fit your vehicle, but the # HM56005 that you referenced would not fit your truck. Instead you would want the # HM56000. The Falcon Tow Bar part # RM-522 that you already have would work great...

  • Everything Needed for Towing a 2009 Smart ForTwo
  • To tow the Smart ForTwo, you will need base plate kit # 52285-1. This will require a rather lengthy installation which requires removing the front fascia from the car. Also, a helper would be needed. It requires trimming of the fascia on some models. With this EZ2 kit, you will be able to remove the base plates when not towing so the brackets will be hardly noticeable. After you install this kit you will also need a tow bar to attach the towed vehicle to your pulling vehicle. If you...
