Video Transcript for Roadmaster Base Plates RM-032 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter. This units adapts Roadmaster base plate brackets to fit multiple tow bar setups. I'm going to go ahead and go through the names of those. It's going to adapt Roadmaster base plates brackets to fit the Blue Ox Acclaim, Adventurer, Aladdin, Alexa, Alpha, Allure, Ambassador, Adventa, Adventa II, Adventa LX, Carbar as well as Blue Ox A frame tow bars with one or three pronged attachments. It also adapts Demco Illuminator, Commander, Dominator, Excalibur, and Quick Tow tow bars. This is made from a very strong and durable steel construction. It's gonna have a protective black powder coated finish which is going to keep it safe from rust and corrosion.

The brackets which are going to be these components right here. These brackets are going to bolt to your Roadmaster base plate brackets. It's going to bolt to those with the included hardware, so this plate goes over the holes and then you simply bolt them on with the included hardware, so you're going to pass through . I'm just going to go ahead and show you how to do one. Really simple installation. You take this bracket, you place it up to the Roadmaster base plate bracket, this spacer goes on there.

Take a bolt, pass it through, on the back side you're going to put the large flat washer, split lock washer, and the nut on there and then you're going to get it tightened down properly. Repeat that for all of them, so then this bracket right here is now bolted onto the Roadmaster base plate brackets and gives the attachment points for the adapter bar. The adapter bar engages through that bottom hole. The bracket engages through that top hole and then basically that's going to get one of these pins and clips attached to it. That's really all there is to it. Very quick and easy, very easy to do.

Everything's going to match up perfecting. The distance from this hole to this hole on center is 28.5 inches. I do need to mention that this adapter does not work with Roadmaster MX, MS, or Easy Five series brackets, but it does come with the pins and clips so you get the arm attached at this point here. That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter.

I am a big fan of Roadmaster products (I own a 2006 Honda CR-V outfitted with a Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms) and this Tow Bar Adapter is no exception. Roadmaster products are designed with quality and ease of use in mind and I especially like the quick disconnect aspect of this hardware. To make things even better, working with etrailer is a pleasure. Their product line is robust and items are delivered in a safe, timely manner and I love the tracking feature. 19757

  • Recommended Roadmaster Baseplate And Accessories For Flat Towing A 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • For your 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata, I recommend eh Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-524450-4 you mentioned. I recommend using the Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube # LT37420 for this installation. The adapter that is compatible with those baseplates is actually the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 and that will work very well with your Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar. If you don't have the safety cables, I recommend the replacement...

  • The Roadmaster EZ5 baseplats are not compatible with the Demco tow bars. The only tow bars compatible other than the Roadmaster tow bars which do not need an adapter are the Blue Ox tow bars when using the # BX88185 adapter. The Demco Excalibur tow bar is compatible with the Standard Roadmaster baseplates using the # RM-033 adapter you mentioned. It is also compatible with the Roadmaster EZ, EZ2, EZ4, and XL base plates using the # RM-032 adapter. It is also compatible with Blue Ox...

The arms for the Ambassador tow bar measure 24 inches and the distance between the brackets on the Blue Ox base plate kit is 22 inches. You can use the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, # 521557-1, with the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter, # RM-032. This base plate kit is designed for 4 door models. If your Civic is a 2 door model, then you will want to use the Roadmaster Base Plate...

  • Adapting Demco Towbar to Roadmaster Base Plate
  • Yes, we do have a Roadmaster Towbar Adapter, part # RM-032, that will adapt your Demco Excalibur to Roadmaster XL Brackets part # 1411-2. It will work with all Roadmaster Base Plate kits except for MX and MS series. I have also included a video link reviewing the Roadmaster Towbar Adapter.

The quick disconnect kit will make it much easier to attach and remove your tow bar. Also, it makes it so you can easily remove the base plate arms when not in use. I included a couple installation videos for you as well.

  • Fitting the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 to Roadmaster Base Plate Kit 1432-1
  • I believe the problem that you are seeing is that you do not have the arms for your Roadmaster base plate kit. You can order new arms by going using part # RM-ARMS and filling out the replacement arms form. Once you have the replacement arms you will then have a fully functioning base plate kit like part # RM-521448-4 which replaced the kit 1432-1 that you mentioned. This will then allow you to use the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 with your Blue Ox Aventa II tow bar.

  • For your 2005 Jeep Wrangler with double tube bumper, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1124 is a confirmed fit as is the Blue Ox # BX1120 with fixed arms. I recommend you go with one of these options instead of the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521424-4 which will not be compatible with the Blue Ox Removable Arms you currently have.

To still use a Blue Ox tow bar like the part # BX7365 you referenced with this kit you'd need the adapter part # RM-032 and you'd be set.
