  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Behind an RV
  • There isn't an attachment to fit the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 to the tow hooks on your 2000 Jeep Cherokee. What you can do is use Roadmaster base plates # 1418-1 or # 1418-3 with adapter # RM-025 but it is not the best fit and the parts haven't been tested together by the manufacturers. But instead of doing all of that I would just go ahead and use either of those base plates listed above with the Roadmaster Tracker tow bar # RM-020. Fewer adapter pieces means a...

  • Tow Bar Compatibility with Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plates
  • The Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar - 2" Ball - 5,000 lbs # RM-020 is not compatible with the EZ5 Base Plate # RM-521448-5. The Roadmaster EZ5 series base plates will only work with Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch and will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball. For a compatible tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520 which would not require the crossbar for this combination. To use the Tracker...

  • My technical contact at Blue Ox confirmed that Blue Ox does not have an adapter that will fit with a Tow Master tow bar to the Blue Ox base plate for your Jeep. I also spoke with my technical contact at Roadmaster who confirmed that the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 1425-1 will fit your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To attach to your Tow Master tow bars you will need the Roadmaster adapter # RM-025. The last part is the Roadmaster Quick Disconnect Kit # RM-201. I have attached a brief...

  • Can a Jeep Wrangler be Flat Towed by the Front Bumper
  • I have a solution for you, however, I would not recommend mounting a tow bar directly to a bumper on a Jeep, whether it is OEM or an aftermarket bumper like the Pavement Ends Front Bumper, # PE4390801. Jeep does not recommend towing the Wrangler with the OEM bumper because it was not designed to pull the weight of the vehicle. Also, mounting a tow bar to a bumper would require drilling. I spoke with my contact at Pavement Ends and she said drilling into this bumper would void the warranty...

  • Base Plate for 2004 Jeep Liberty Thats Compatible with Reese Tow Bar
  • As long as your Liberty doesn't have a brush guard on it, the Roadmaster # RM-521423-5 base plate kit would be a good choice. If you DO have a brush guard, use # 521426-1. In order to be compatible with your Reese tow bar, you'd also need an adapter like part # RM-025. I'm not sure which Reese tow bar you have, but keep in mind that some of the Reese towbars have a limited speed rating of 45 mph. The # 40602 bracket you referenced is more suited to something that would have a completely...

  • Are Roadmaster Base Plates Compatible with the Curt Adjustable Tow Bar for a 2000 Chevy Tracker
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and she stated that the adjustable tow bar 19745 has brackets on it that are universal. In other words, he could not say if it was a fit with Roadmaster base plates. Also, Roadmaster does not list an adapter for the Curt tow bar. Based on this information I cannot say whether or not the Curt tow bar is compatible with Roadmaster base plates. What I recommend is to stay with a Roadmaster tow bar or at least a tow bar that Roadmaster does make an adapter...

Some vehicles require modifications such as a drive line disconnect, transmission lube pump, freewheeling hubs or axle disconnects.

  • Can a 2008 Honda CR-V be flat Towed Behind and RV Using a Tow Ready/Reese Tow Bar 63180
  • I would actually advise against using Tow Ready tow bar # 63180 for a couple of reasons. First, this tow bar is rated for a maximum of 45 miles per hour which is fine for short hops around town but useless for highway use. And second there are base plates required, # 40602, but they are going to require major modifications to the bumper and need to be reinforced so professional installation is recommended. The other option is to use custom base plates # RM-521559-4 with an adapter # RM-025...

  • The Roadmaster base plates, # 521434-1, will work with a Reese tow bar as long as it is Reese model 74950 and you use adapter # RM-025 with quick disconnects # RM-201. If it is a different model tow bar then it will not work. based on my research I found that the compatible Reese tow bar is only rated for 5,000 pounds so it is not likely the base plates will be compatible.
