Video Transcript for Review of Roadmaster - Tow Bars - RM-201

Today we're gonna take look at the Roadmaster tow bar quick disconnect kit. Now these quick disconnects will allow for a nice quick, easy one person connection and disconnection of your Roadmaster car mounted tow bar.The set will include two car side components, which are these two right here. These attach to the tow bar mounting brackets on your vehicle and it includes two tow bar side components that attach to the crossbar on the tow bar assembly, and the car side ones, the design of the quick disconnects on the car side ones are nice 'cause it will let you mount various towing accessories, has an extra hole here so you can use safety cables. Has a place where you can attach the guardian rock shield, the tow defender deflector can also be attached to these car side quick disconnects.Now the hardware all laid out here on the table, everything on the table here is included and again, it's the two tow bar side quick disconnects. There's a driver's and passenger side. The two car side quick disconnects, driver's side and passenger side, the four backing plates, the four 1/2" bolts, four 1/2" washers, four 1/2" lock washers, and then four 1/2" nuts.

Nice set of detailed instructions on how this all goes together and then the two lynch pins right here on the car side disconnects.But basically what happens is these are connected again to your tow bar mounting brackets; just slide out your lynch pin and then this is attached to the crossbar on your tow bar assembly so when you get together, you just drop the pin in there, over the top one and through the bottom one, and then take your lynch pin, line it up, slide it through, and once you slide it all the way through, make sure it's fully closed. The pull is even large enough you could put a lock through there if you would want to, but again then that'll hold it together and then to disconnect it, just take off the pin, remove the tow bar side and then there be your car side.But that should do it for the review on the Roadmaster tow bar quick disconnect kit.

The entire Roadmaster tow kit fit my 2015 Jeep Wrangler perfectly. The quick disconnects are really trick and easy to install and use. With this system I can unhook at the campground and be ready to drive off in a couple of minutes. Alignment during hookup is also very easy. Nice safe, reasonably priced set up. Thanks, Dave 176206

I'am in the process of setting up my 2017 Equinox to tow behind our motorhome. I've placed 4-orders with etrailer. So far I've installed the base plate, the wiring from the rear tail lights to the front end.I also received my Tow bar and the quick release parts. my next project is to install the invisi brake system. I want to send Kudos to Cathy T for her help and her great customer service. I'am also thanking James A for his quick response to a question about the wiring harness. I'am extremely happy with the quality of everything I ordered at etrailer. Thanks 421656

Quick Disconnects are a must for using this Roadmaster towbar on a Jeep GC. Installation was a little difficult since we did not have the carriage bolts from the towbar. I bought some grade 5 bolts as suggested. Aligning the QDs to come on and off is not easy, took about a half an hour with a helper. The safety cable is a little short so we will have to add another C-link before we go. I like the economy shipping option though. 132212

    There are adjustable width tow bars but I am not sure you have all the components you will need to flat tow the 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon. The first thing you are going to need are the base plates. The receiver base plates you mentioned do not sound like they are for tow bar use to flat tow a vehicle. For your Vanagon, you would need the Roadmaster Standard Base Plates, # 1208-1. These base plates provide a safe a secure attachment point for a compatible tow bar. The most popular tow bar...

    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...

  • Are the Roadmaster Quick Disconnects # RM-201 Necessary for the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar # RM-201
    If you want to easily hookup and disconnect the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar, # RM-020, from Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 1012-1, then I strongly recommend using the quick disconnects. This is the easiest method of hooking up and an disconnecting. It would seem easy enough to remove the pins holding the base plate draw bars or removing the pins for the tow bar arms, but those are points that will be subject to binding. After towing, it will not be very easy to remove either of those...

  • Tow Bar, Base Plate Kit, and Accessories Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 Ford Ranger
    To start off with, you will need a base plate kit for your 2011 Ford Ranger. The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, item # 477-1, is the correct kit for your vehicle. Next, you will need a tow bar. If you are towing with a motor home that has a 2 inch receiver, the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, item # RM-520, would be a great choice. You will not need the Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit, item # RM-201, that you selected with this tow bar, because the Falcon 2 comes...

The adapter will bolt to the mounting bracket and use the mentioned Quick Disconnects for attachment.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.

  • How to Flat Tow a Vehicle Level with a Car Mounted Tow Bar
    It sounds like the problem you are trying to fix is that your tow bar does not sit level while your vehicle is being flat towed. Since you have a Roadmaster Stowmaster part # RM-501 that is a ball mount style tow bar all you would need to do level the setup would be to get the correct ball mount. Without knowing what it would take to level your tow bar the best recommendation I can make would be to check out the help article I attached that details how to pick out the correct rise/drop...
