Simple, Hidden Design

Blue Ox Base Plate With Arms AttachedBlue Ox Base Plate Arms Removed

This base plate's hidden design creates a clean and seamless look. The bracket arms are easily removable, creating a slick appearance when you're not flat towing. Because the arms can be removed, you also won't have to worry about banging your leg into any protruding arms when you walk by.

Blue Ox Base Plate Removable Arms

Attaching and removing the bracket arms is a breeze. To attach the arms to the base plate, simply insert them into the receivers and rotate them until they lock into place. Once you're finished towing and want to remove the arms, pull the pin to disengage the lock, rotate the arms, and remove them from the receivers. Finally, plug up the now empty receivers with the included receiver covers to help keep dirt and debris out of the base plate and provide a finished look.

Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.

There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.

Towing Basics

The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motorhome's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

Jeep Liberty

It was easy to install and works excellent - videos that you provide are very easy to follow. It fit perfect on our Jeep Liberty and hide well when not in use

Item is still preforming well finish is not rusting out either which shows good quality workmanship. Love that it hides well when not in use
Lisa - 02/13/2022


The only thing negative would be the bolt holes on the base plate were not exact to my 2004 Jeep liberty not real bad so I was able to make it work just fine. Overall good product. Can't wait to hook up to the RV and go.

Fantastic. Dont even know the Jeep is behind us.

2003 Jeep Liberty

The etrailer service was great as usual, but like other was very disappointed in the fasteners that were provided. Two of the four main bolts stripped when torqued to the recommended level. $20 trip to the hardware store to get grade 8 bolts solved the issue, but I should not have needed to make this upgrade. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed.


Works great. Very happy with it.

2002 Jeep Liberty

Easy installation. Great product

2004 Jeep Liberty

Base plate bx1119 and wiring kit hm56203 both were very easy to install , just follow the easy directions .I'm 73 and it only took me 4 hours to completely install both. I did it with the jeep sitting flat on garage floor.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates

I watched the video and installed it myself. I had to buy a hole saw, but other than that I had all the tools. It took about 3.5 hours. The only odd thing is the Edge hook up is very high. I had to purchase a 6 inch riser class III hitch.


Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates

I ordered a Blue Ox Base Plate for my Ford Focus. Blue Ox said they were out of stock, and would have to make one, six or more weeks? I Order the Blue Ox Base Plate from etrailer, and it was delivered to my house in three days. Getting ready to install it, directions look very well detailed. Look forward to towing our Ford Focus this summer, with our Motorhome, on our camping trips

It is working fine, have not had any issues. I installed it, fit as described.
