Base Plates Specs:
Base Plate Features:
Designed for full size pickups and SUVs. Heavy duty frames of those vehicles eliminate the need for a crossbar, making installation of the tow bar easier. Removable drawbars make the baseplates virtually invisible when you're not towing the vehicle. MX base plates only work with tow bars that slide into a 2" trailer hitch.
Trimming of spoiler, air dam, grille or plastic fascia may be required on some models of this vehicle.
This bracket will accommodate any ROADMASTER motorhome-mounted tow bar. However, safety chain anchor brackets for Sterling cables will not fit. To use with Sterling tow bar the Sterling cable anchors must be attached to the frame of the vehicle or welded to the receiver portion of the bracket. IMPORTANT NOTE: this bracket will not accommodate the Guardian rock shield, Tow Defender, Stowaway or the StowMaster and StowMaster All Terrain tow bars.
Product will work on models with Adaptive Cruise Control.
Adaptive Cruise Control systems use a radar or laser sensor mounted in the front of vehicle that automatically adjusts cruise control to slow down when it detects a vehicle ahead and accelerate again to preset speed when traffic allows.
Removable drawbars, held in place with a pin and clip, make the baseplates virtually invisible when not towing the car.
Bumper fascia must be removed and replaced during installation
Requires some trimming of bumper (fascia, plastic, and/or grille)
Requires some minor drilling
Requires some trimming of the air dam
Baseplate has non-24" spaced attachment tabs. Requires either a motorhome mounted tow bar or an adapter to utilize a car mounted tow bar. The BX88153 adapter can not be used on non 24" baseplates. Tow bar adapters are not to be used with vehicles weighing over 5000 lbs.
Use only with motorhome mount tow bars or the BX8833 or BX88151 adapters. Removable tabs with only one hole will not attach to car mount tow bars or other adapters. The Acclaim may only be used with removable tab baseplates that have 23" or greater spaced tabs. The Adventurer may only be used with baseplates that have 16" – 36" spaced removable tabs. The Ambassador may only be used with 24" spaced removable tabs.
