Video Transcript for Roadmaster Base Plates RM-031 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster tow bar to Blue Ox base plates adapters. Now this part will adapt your Roadmaster's Blackhawk, Falcon, or Sterling tow bars to Blue Ox base plate brackets. They will work on the Sterling tow bars with serial numbers up to 14,500. Now if the serial number on your Sterling tow bar is higher, then you need to use the part number RM-031-5, which we do sell separately on our website.Now this part will include these two pieces, one for each arm of the tow bar. Basically what happens is right here, this bolt will go through the arm of the tow bar, and then this bracket here with the pin and clip, you would slide out your clip and your pin. And then this bracket will attach to the Blue Ox base plate brackets, and once they slide in there, you just slide your pin through.

And then put your clip on there like that, and it will hold it in to place.It does include the two swivel ears, the two base pins and clips, the two Allen head shoulder bolts, four plastic washers, two metal washers, and then two lock nuts. And it does have a nice detailed set of instructions on how to install it. And these parts are made in the USA. But that should do it for the review on the Roadmaster tow bar to Blue Ox base plates adapter.

Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter - RM-031

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (133 Customer Reviews)


Exactly as described. I chose this adapter bracket from Roadmaster over the adapter bracket from Blue Ox (although it looks like beefier metal) because it is a solid piece of metal instead of the Blue Ox that is welded (and more expensive). Probably both are fine. Also I figured it would fit the Falcon Roadmaster tow bar exactly, and with accurate instructions, since it is made by Roadmaster. (Again, the Blue Ox one would probably be fine too.) So I have used the instructions and assembled the adapter brackets and it appears to be fine. I will now need to get a torque wrench.



Work perfectly. I like that they are manufactured as one piece rather than pieces welded together as another supplier has done.



I need a base plate and tow bar for a 1998 Ford explorer 4 door

I have some options for you! I recommend the Blue Ox baseplate part # BX2141 if your Ford Explorer is a limited edition Explorer. If it is not a limited edition, you will need part # BX2119. Please keep in mind the owner's manual of this vehicle requires a "neutral tow kit" from the dealership before flat towing behind a motorhome. I recommend the etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar part # e47ZR which is designed to work with the Blue Ox base plate and features a non-binding trigger to easily release the tension when disconnecting the tow bar. There are many other components needed to flat your 1998 Ford Explorer such as: wiring, a supplemental braking system and a high low adapter so please let me know if you need anything else.


Happy to find a clean conversion from blue ox to roadmaster sterling tow bar.


We've had a Roadmaster Falcon 2 towbar for several years and now have a Cadillac SRX with a Blue Ox baseplate. Purchased these to adapt the car to the towbar and they work perfect. They arrived quickly and were easy to install. Well-made product and highly recommended. Leave it to etrailer to always have the solution.


These adapters fit just fine. Shipping was very fast and staff was great. Highly recommend this company.


These things are heavy duty. They are designed to join two different systems (Blue Ox and Roadmaster) together. Great product. You can tow with confidence.


I the adapter worked great! Easy installation. Video very helpful.
Sherry S did an outstanding job! Very helpful and very knowledgeable. Also very pleasant and professional!
Thank you!!


Shipping was fast & Adapters are heavy duty -- Exact fit for my Roadmaster Tow Bar --


I ordered these on line from because I had purchased a used vehicle that came with a Blue Ox system already attached but I have been using a Falcon 2 bar for years. They made a very inexpensive option for my scenario. It would have cost hundreds of dollars to put a Roadmaster system on the car. My only complaint is that the clevis pins pop out very easily. For safety, I will secure them with zip-ties before each trip (cheap insurance).



One year later, the system is working out well. I havent had any problems with the pins.


Fits as advertised!


Etrailer has everything!


After requesting to expedite the Shipping, e trailer came through and we got the parts in time for our trip. Good service!
The new adapter brackets fit well and are working well to tow our car.


Delivered as ordered. No surprises.


Well made and delivered fast.


Very helpful and knowledgeable team. My order arrived when promised and was reasonably priced
Thank you to Kate for the assistance she provided.


Product looks great and will work well for us. One piece of advice, package it better.. The box was wide open when it arrived.



Still works great. Would recommend it.


Excellent quality and fit perfectly


These adapters work perfect, quick and easy to install. After a year of regular use with a Falcon tow bar pulling our Chevy Sonic with the Blue Ox tow plate all. is well.


The tabs for Blue Ox base plate fit perfect. The adapter fit to the tabs very nicely, but the swivel ear, where it attaches to the tow bar was too wide, 1 1/2" and the shaft on my towbar needs only 7/8". The directions say a round nut should screw on the shaft and fill the space, but there isn't any threads on the towbar shaft. I talked to a very nice lady, at Etrailers help number, about the problem, and she said, that Roadmaster says it's ok, and so does DOT, to snugly fill in the gap with grade 8 washers.


They work great!


They say that a company is only as good as its employees... Well, etrailer is extremely fortunate to have someone like Shawn B. Working for them! This young lady got me out of a really frustrating predicament, and through careful listening and asking the right questions, she saved me not only a ton of money, but a whole bunch of frustration as well! My dilemma was that I had purchased a Jeep Liberty with a Blue Ox base plate, but I had a Blackhawk 2 tow bar! I thought I was going to have to go out and buy a Blue Ox tow bar to use with the Blue Ox base plate, but through careful review of my situation, and a calm analytical approach, this young lady determined exactly what I needed in the way of adapters and a towing light set up! Today, more than ever, it's all about customer service, and that is exactly what she provided for me!


Excellent product and great price. I have always received great service and shipping with outstanding communication and tracking .
I tow two different vehicles with different brand mounts and these brackets will make my life much easier by just swapping brackets instead of having to use two different tow bars.


Product arrived in a timely manner...
detailed instructions are mandatory to follow to avoid attachment problems...
I'm pleased with this product and would recommend to others that have A Blue Ox Base Plate to use with a Roadmaster Sterling or other Roadmaster Tow Bar...


they were very helpful, i ordered the wrong parts on my own, when i called, they gave me all the right parts to order, and sent me shipping label to return wrong parts. excellent customer service.


We sold our toad vehicle that had a Roadmaster base plate system. We kept our Roadmaster Falcon tow bar in anticipation of equipping our new toad vehicle with a Roadmaster base plate. When we found our new toad we were surprised to find it already had a Blue Ox base plate. These adapters allowed me to use my tow bar and connect to the Blue Ox on the car. Took less than 5 minutes to install and saved me from having to buy a new tow bar. $80 for the adapters versus $500 for a new tow bar - great value!!


I received the RoadMaster tow bar adaptors promptly, they were easy to install and have performed flawlessly for 1,000's of miles of towing my Jeep. has become my go to place to purchase high quality components.
