Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter Review

Today, we're going to review and install the Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox bracket adapter, part number RN-031. With everything hooked up, let's go ahead and take it for a short test drive and see how it works. This looks like our adapter's installed on our tow bar and face plate combination. We have a Roadmaster All Terrain Tow Bar here up to this point. Then we have our new adapter right here. This goes to our Blue Ox attachment tab right here. These are very simple and easy install. We'll go ahead and show how to do that next.

With this part number, this is what you get. You get 2 new adapter brackets, pin and clip to hold everything together, and hardware to attach to your Roadmaster Tow Bar. One for each side with this part number. This adapts to Roadmaster Black Hawk, Falcon, and Sterling tow bars to your Blue Ox brackets. For comparison, this is the tab that comes off the Blue Ox base plate. This will work with your adapter that goes to your Road Master tow bar. One last detail to know about these adapters is when you're working with the Sterling tow bars, this will work with serial numbers on your tow bar that go up to 14,500.

If that number's higher than this, then use part number RM-031-5. Now we'll go ahead and show you how we install these on our Roadmaster tow bar. We'll be working with a Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar. On your adapted part, simply replaces this part on the tow bar. All we got to do is remove the hardware right here and install the new adapter with new hardware. To remove our adapter, we'll use a quarter inch hex bit or allen key. On the other side, we use 9 16th.

We'll go ahead and remove the hardware. Your adapters come with all new pieces so we don't have to worry about saving anything. Now we'll get our adapter and we'll use the same tools. We'll go ahead and get it taken apart and put it into place. We'll pull a bolt out almost all the way and we'll make sure that plastic washer stays inside. We'll slide it into place. Now we'll take our second plastic washer, push it in the side there, and we're going to bolt through it.

Then we'll run a bolt out to the outside, reinstall a flat washer, and we can go ahead and tighten down the hardware. After we have it hand tightened, we'll go ahead and torque down the bold as specified in the instructions. We're going to repeat the same process on the other side. We have them installed. Let's go ahead and try them out. Simply slide into your Blue Ox attaching pin. We'll put in this pin and its clip and we're good to go. We'll do one more on the other side. That'll finish it for Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter, part number RN-031.

This adapter saved me having to buy a complete new tow bar. I bought a new toad vehicle that was already rigged with different brand of tow brackets than my current toad. This adapter allowed me to use existing tow bar with new toad. Very easy to install. Fits perfectly. 669366

The Blue Ox adapters on my Roadmaster tow bar work perfectly. 493624



- RM-031
by:

I ordered these on line from etrailer.com 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). 493346


Comments

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

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. 477594


Comments

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

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. 474882

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! 462958

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!! 406304

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Adaptor For Roadmaster Tow Bar

You can either use the Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter # RM-031 or the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Roadmaster Tow Bars # BX88151. Both of these adapters will work well, so if it were me I'd go with the better price option. I've attached an article with an adapter table to show this fit (as well as others) to assist.

If this is what you have you can still use your existing adapters with the Blackhawk 2 as long as they aren't damaged as well.

This is the only adapter, other than # BX88262, to adapt the Blackhawk to Blue Ox base plates and it installs exactly the same way. Depending on the age of your Blackhawk the instructions for the adapter may not apply (entirely) because there was a design change at one point on the nuts at the ends of the tow bar arms.

Apart from the tow bar itself, flat towing also requires a set of base plates, a wiring/lighting kit and a supplementary braking system for the towed car.

You will need to spread the 2 arms apart on the tow bar and then look for the sticker where the two arms come together. That is where you should find the serial number. For serial numbers above 14,501 you will need adapter # RM-031-5 that you have referenced. For serial numbers up to 14,500 you will need adapter # RM-031.

But if you use one maker for both you will save some money and have a simpler set-up.
