Please refer to the linked article which provides details for each of these items. I have also provided a link to our main page for tow bars where you can identify correct base plates, wiring and braking systems for your setup.

  • Base Plate Adapter Recommendation for Duncan TowMatic II to Connect to Roadmaster Base Plate
  • We have just what you need. Your Duncan DM7007 is the Towmatic II which we have an adapter that allows it to attach to Roadmaster base plate kits. The adapter is the part # RM-038. So then for a base plate kit you would want the part # 1429-1 which is a confirmed fit for your 2008 Jeep Wrangler with a standard bumper. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow...

  • Adapter Recommendation to Connect Demco Towmatic II Tow Bar to Roadmaster Base Plate
  • The part # RM-038 is the correct adapter you would need to connect your Towmatic II tow bar to the Roadmaster part # 278-1. You would need the entire adapter to safely make the connection so I would not recommend trying to just use a single part of the adapter. Plus the portion you referenced is not available.

  • Will the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit Work with a Towmatic II Tow Bar on a 2014 Equinox
  • The Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, # RM-523160-4, requires the tow bar adapter, # RM-038, to work with the Towmatic II tow bar. The base plates on your Honda should have required this adapter as well, so if you already have the adapter, you could simply reuse it with your new base plates on the Chevy Equinox. The only other part you may be interested in is the Roadmaster Quick Disconnect Kit, # RM-201. This will make it easier to disconnect the tow bar from the adapter when you are not towing....
