2009 Chevrolet Avalanche - Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your Chevrolet Avalanche's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar. The visible portions of the brackets can be removed when you are not towing.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design - drawbars are easily removable via 2 pins
    • Improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • Compatible with Quick Disconnects and all Roadmaster tow bars
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


The square drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style base plate kit are simple to mount and remove, easily securing with hitch pins. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

Was very easy for me to install. Have mechanical background. Used 1/2" cordless impact. Bought 3 new milwaukee titanium drill bits. To step up to hole size. I would say in all I spent an hour and a half in a parking lot hooking up a disabled 2008 Chevy Silverado. I followed the video on YouTube. They were several, plus, etrailer.com had a lot of information. Hooked up towmaster bar to 3/4 ton 2020 2500 GMC diesel. The 2008 Silverado towed behind the GMC I didn't know it was there. 912323

Installation was simple. Only minor mods to bumper cover. Towed vehicle on several trips with no problems. Some of the paint on the hitch bar has rubbed off, but can be touched up easily. Overall excellent product, great customer service. I have made more purchases from e-trailer and am a happy repeat customer. 737265

We ordered tow mounts, road master tow bar and some accessories from etrailer for a 2009 Suburban. All the items arrived within a few days and packed in secure boxes. After just a little drilling the mounts went right on, the instructions are very detailed and easy to follow. I highly recommend etrailer.com for your towing needs. 427243

The items were delivered faster than I thought, only six days. Installed the base plate in less than three hours. It helps if you have an extra person to help remove the bumper assembly. No triming or cutting of the bumper assembly was needed in my install on a 2013 Silverado. The wiring kit will be installed in the next few days. 65893

Volvo Cross Country

I have several full size GM trucks with tow bar "base plates" and have towed these vehicles extensively, including cross country. The Roadmaster 3154-1 are by far the strongest to the point of being almost over built and well concealed. etrailer ordering was easy. Delivery was very quick. Price was lower than competitors I checked. What's not to like? Nothing! 8715

The products I ordered from "etrailer" arrived ahead of time and were exactly as described. The sales people at "etrailer" emailed to let me know when I could expect my order and then emailed a follow-up to make sure all was okay with the order! I would definitely order from "etrailer" again. 114538

Review from a similar XL in Base Plates


I just got done with the installation. Overall it was fairly straightforward, however it would have been nice if they had included pictures in the instructions. The larger bolts in the kit could have a more beveled tip like the factory bolts. This would make it much easier to get the bolts started in the holes. The photo attached is of the factory bolt for reference. Shipping was very quick, only took a few days. Price seems pretty high for these base plates. I purchased them for $360 and was even able to find a 5% off coupon online by using google. 658076

  • Flat Towing Base Plates for 2014 Chevy Silverado
    For a 2014 Silverado, the exact base plate assembly you need will depend on whether your truck is a 1500, 2500 or 3500 series. For a 1500 series, you'd want to use the Roadmaster # RM-3176-1. For a 2500 or 3500 series w/ tow hooks, use # 3167-1. I'm not sure what you meant by 'ring assembly'. The base plates bolt to the front of the truck frame assembly, and consist of a receiver and a drawbar. The drawbars are removable, and are meant to attach to the tow bar quick disconnect, which...

    Because they changed the 1500 Silverado in 2014 you will need a different base plate kit. For that you would want the Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # RM-3176-1. 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. For lighting...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2003 Chevy Silverado Behind an RV
    Custom fit base plates should not be welded to your 2003 Chevy Silverado. They are not designed to be welded and doing so could compromise the structural integrity of the base plates. Base plates # 3154-1 are not a fit for your truck but we have other options that are. If your truck is a 1500HD, 2500, or 3500 you can use # 3115-1. If it is a 1500 but not a Z71 or HD then use # 199-10 and the front suspension must have coil springs. And if it is a Z71 with torsion bar front suspension...

    The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if your 2007 Chevy Tahoe can be flat towed and if there are any specific requirements, restrictions, or recommendations. As long as your Tahoe isn't a hybrid model use base plate kit # DM9518200. I like the Demco kits beause there's nothing to remove when you're not towing and you can barely see them on the vehicle.

You should confirm the towability and pre-towing procedures for any vehicle you might select with the owners manual, or you could also contact the vehicle manufacturer for specific towing procedures. The 2007 to 2011 model Escalade AWD is not flat towable and must be towed on a trailer. For base plates use # 3154-1. Other items you will...
