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.

The size of the box terrified me but I had to do this one myself.
This project is not for the faint of heart. When you think about what could go wrong you could wet yourself. I went with my gut and just opened the box. Hmmm, packaged very well with everything you need for the install. No going to the hardware store for this or that. Sat there with a cold sarsaparilla and read the very detailed instructions, went back to the etrailer web site and checked out some vids and pics. Hmm, it didn’t seem that daunting of a job. On my 04 Lexus GX470 most of the holes were drilled. Before I knew it 5 hours had past and I owned a toad! I took it to my local Rv service center for an inspection and it was deemed safe to use.
This thing is awesome, tracs straight as an arrow.
Now, I have to figure out this diode lighting kit. Camping is fun! Yah!!! :) Noah and etrailer made this a tolerable project. I urge everyone to take advantage of the resources that are on this sight. I always learn something when I’m there. See y’all on the trail….Rod


everything bolted up easy, i simply drilled hole’s into were needed and supplied my own bolts straight through for easy installation.


I am really happy, not only with the product but the customer care I received. Very quick and helpful!!

I would make one suggestion. Take the headlights out when doing this on a Chevy Cobalt. It will make it much easier to get to the 3 bolt holding the fender to the fascia.


Pretty easy to do my self but the instructions could have been a bit larger with more pictures. I think the hardest part was drilling the holes to attach the two brackets as there was only one hole on each frame. Getting the square nuts with wire attached were difficult to get both aligned because the wire on the first one got in the way each time


Bought it at etrailer as I have with other trailer hitch related parts. Installed it myself, and it was a real job. I figure about 10 hours to get it right so I didn't have to worry if my 'toad' would pass my motorhome as I tooled down the road. Fit was perfect for my 2008 Honda CRV, but make sure you keep that oil cooler line up as high as possible or you will be redoing the fit to get the front cowling back on the car. Bought an angle grinder with cutoff wheels and that made the frame notching a lot easier. Note that if the removeable attachment pins are a tight fit into the base plate, they will loosen up with a good silicone lubricant and the wear of towing. I have towed with confidence for a year without a hitch (pun intended).


It turned out fine but my opinion is that you should have some average or above mechanical skills to install this yourself. As you can see, the base plate protrusions are hardly noticeable at a distance with the tow pins removed. One thing worth mentioning is I had to mount it more rearward on the frame because the front valance would not mount back on correctly. Overall, good base plate.


This Base plate was fairly simple to install in about 1/2 a day. I also installed brake kit and wiring so actually spent most of the day. This baseplate combined with the etrailer tow bar have been great. already pulled over 5000 miles with no issues at all. I love this setup and will never go back to tow dolly


The Bx2692 is the better tow bar solution because it is higher up to hopefully keep your tow bar flat. I modified a Base bumper to install this because it is only available for the "Modular" and "Capable" bumpers. The base bumper option from bluox is for lower tow hook delete option. Took about 3hrs with the help of a grinder jigsaw and multi tool.


The item I received must have been a returned item. The box label was proof it was shipped to someone else before. Reason I'm not happy is because the bag of screws was open and most of it slipped out of the holes of the damaged box that was opened before and re-taped. The end of the crossbar was bent and not much packing inside. I needed this for our trip, so I didn't return it and had to fix and find screws to make it all work.


First dealing with etrailer has been the best experience hands down. Great staff, immediate support if I had questions. And the part I ordered was the blue ox tow adapter plates for my 04 hummer h2. It only took about an hour for the install and all parts came with it. All were very well made. I usually pull a 20' closed trailer behind my 41' coach but having the option to take my h2 is awsome and looks good too! Thanks etrailer!!! I would definitely recommend etrailer for all your trailer needs and I will be purchasing more in the future.


My only complaint...the box failed during shipping, it arrived wet and open. The saving grace was that the baseplate and all hardware arrived undamaged.


I have been using this Blue Ox tow bar kit for a year now and have put over 10,000 miles on it. It has performed flawlessly and in my opinion it is an excellent product that I would highly recommend. etrailer is a great company to work with and their website is easy to use and has great information.


This is the seventh Blue Ox baseplate I have installed on my personal vehicles. All have been pretty straight forward until this one. I had noticed on the installation video that positioning the base plate was skipped over and went directly to drilling and bolting into place. Now I know why. It was impossible to get the baseplate into position on my 2012 Jeep Patriot. After 2 hours of fruitless attempts I took a break and gave it some thought. I decided to remove the bumper and attach baseplate and bumper together. I used 2 carpenters clamps and old reliable duck tape. Set the assembly on stands and inched it into place. Worked great, slid easily into place for drilling and bolting. I had previously trimmed the frame but it would have been much easier with the bumper removed. I believe this is a reasonable alternative, maybe better method of installation.


Perfect fit and simple instructions with pictures saved me hundreds by doing it myself...Thank You Blue Ox and etrailer!

  • High Weight Capacity Blue Ox Tow Bar to Use with Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2675 on Ford F-350
    Since the Blue Ox Trion part # BX7520P has an arm width range of up to 32 inches and the distance between the arms of the Blue Ox kit base plate kit part # BX2675 is 34-1/2 inches this tow bar would not work for you but the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 that you also referenced would work so it would be your best option.

  • Pintle/Lunette Ring Style Tow Bar for Flat Towing 2018 Ford F-250
    Due to the weight of your 2018 Ford F-250 the lunette ring style tow bar you would want is the Blux Ox Allure part # BX7460P which has a 10k capacity. The Roadmaster Stowmaster part # RM-581 that has the lunette ring only has a 6k capacity so it would not be what you would want. So then that would mean the base plate kit you would want would be the Blue Ox part # BX2675.
