Options for Flat Towing a 1974 Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser with a 2011 Fleetwood 32BH Storm

Question:

Will this towbar work for my landcruiser, behind my 2011 Fleetwood 32BH Storm? My FJ40 bumper has a big flat face, so mounting the actual bracket will be easy. thanks in advance

There is a flat towing solution, but if there was a Roadmaster base plate kit available for your 1974 Toyota Land Cruiser you could use a Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar # 63180 if your vehicle weighed less than 5,000 lbs. and you do not plan on towing the vehicle at over 45 miles per hour. However, at this time there is not a Roadmaster custom base plate kit available for your vehicle.

What you could do is install a Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit # BX88230 onto your vehicle to give you a base plate attachment point. From there you could use a Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar A-Frame # BX7365 as a tow bar that will allow for towing speeds above 45 miles per hour. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

Next, you are going to need a tow bar wiring solution. For a more permanent solution I would recommend you get a Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring Kit # BX8848. I attached an FAQ page on this install for you to check out.

Or for more of a temporary lighting solution I would recommend a Magnetic Towing Light Kit # C-ATL20A. I attached an FAQ on how to pick the right wiring kit for you to check out also.

Lastly you will need a supplemental braking system, I recommend you get a Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2010. This will apply the brakes in your tow vehicle proportionately to the amount of braking that your 2011 Fleetwood 32BH Storm is applying.
