2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 - Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

Designed specifically for heavy-duty applications, direct-connect brackets install onto your Chevrolet Silverado 3500's frame to provide attachment points for a motor-home-mounted tow bar. Front arms are easily removable when not in use.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design - drawbars are easily removable via 2 pins
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • No crossbar needed - faster hookup and sleeker appearance
    • Crossbar not required because these direct-connect base plates are designed for strong, heavy-duty applications
  • Compatible with all Roadmaster tow bars that slide into trailer hitch receivers
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


Note: Direct-connect base plates will work only with the Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch, such as the Sterling, Blackhawk, Blackhawk 2, Falcon and Falcon 2. These base plates will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball.


Direct-connect brackets do not require a crossbar because of the heavy-duty nature of your vehicle's frame. Thus, installation is simplified, the hookup process is faster, and the total appearance is enhanced.


Note: The EZ Hook safety cables included with Roadmaster's Sterling tow bars will not work with direct-connect base plates. These cables connect to an anchor plate on the Quick Disconnect crossbar, which will not be present when you are using these base plates.


The drawbars, or front arms, on the direct-connect base plate kit are simple to mount and remove, easily securing with 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.

Review from a similar MX in Base Plates


Another great product from etrailer. Arrived on time came with everything I needed. Had to trim a little more plastic trim than I expected but it’s all good. Took me about 3 hours including the wiring to the tail lights and breakaway switch for the brake buddy.


Comments
Perfectly. Still operates and works as good as the day I installed it. Great product.

Review from a similar MX in Base Plates


Very solid and relatively easy to install. However the directions were written by lawyers rather than mechanics. The two side plates look almost identical but are different, and the directions do not say anything about this or advise how to tell them apart. Pictures in the instructions could be larger. This item was installed on a 15 year old vehicle. etrailer did their part - good pricing and fast delivery. Their website can be difficult to navigate but help is available by calling. The installation video is excellent, and is what convinced me to buy this and to install it myself.


Comments
The baseplate is sturdy and fit the holes in the frame. Once I accepted that the front license plate needed to be relocated, installation took about a day. In addition to the baseplate itself, the safety cables and brake wiring need connection points, which result in more holes in the grille. The design of the baseplate ignores the fact that wiring connections from RV to tow are needed - having a mount for the wiring plug would have been a big help. We have towed several thousand miles with no problems with the baseplate.

Review from a similar MX in Base Plates


Bought this to be able to flat-tow our 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser which some say can't be done (w/o damage to the tranny) - however - we're a couple thousand mile into the experiment and all seems to be well. The device itself - although a bit awkward to completely remove/reinstall on the vehicle - shows no sign of weakness or operational malfunction. For those of you who may consider doing this same thing with your Toy and are using (or intend to use) Roadmaster's Brakemaster air-actuated brake system, BE ADVISED: you WILL burn up your Cruiser's brakes UNLESS you add their 900002 adjustable pressure reducer to accommodate your "active" braking system. (Bolt hole spacing on the actuator cylinder bracket allows for mounting the reducer right on the unit inside the vehicle ;-) One improvement Roadmaster could/should make to this baseplate setup is to provide mounting points for their Guardian series front-end vehicle protection. It CAN be done!


Comments
After a year of pointlessly hauling around that Guardian rock guard on its storage mount on the back of the motorhome, we finally got the mods to the baseplate done that should be a factory option. Woohoo, it worked!! So far as the baseplate parts themselves, the only possible concerns Ive noticed are: 1 some rust and wear of the hitch pins 2 wear at the holes in the hitch pins where the security lockskeepers pass through them. Looking into replacing the whole hitchpin setup with the same type of locking pins I use in the receiver tow hitch and baseplate arm receivers.

The Roadmaster tow bar mounts were easy to install and fit great. They worked without fail up to Alaska and Canada over 10K miles. Also the tail light wiring kit made for an easy install. I installed both products myself, but in fairness I am a former ASE cert mechanic.


Comments
The Roadmaster tow bar mounts are holding up great and we are still towing on them.

Review from a similar MX in Base Plates


Installed the direct connect kit on our 2009 Subaru Forester to serve as a towable behind our motorhome. Once installed the kit blended well with the car and only minor modifications were required to the fascia. It was not really noticeable at all with the towing arms removed. The tolerance on the baseplate frame holes was slightly off. I had to drill mounting holes and route them out slightly to match the body mounting positions. Our Subaru did not have an body damage so I think the factory got the holes slightly off center. Note- this baseplate replaces the actual bumper on the Subaru so it leaves a gap between the baseplate and fascia that was not there with the factory bumper. Not a problem, just be prepared for that.

Easy to install, have held up well over 8,000 miles. They do need to be checked for tightness as per the directions. Highly recommended!

Review from a similar MX in Base Plates


Excellent product. Easy to install on my 2005 Honda Element. Didn't have to cut anything on the frame or the grill fascia. Went with the Roadmaster over the Blue Ox because it is a less conspicuous baseplate and it wasn't necessary to alter any of the frame/metal on the car. I have a Blue Ox tow bar so I also had to have an adapter kit to hook the two together. Etrailer.com was very helpful getting me the correct parts I needed. Their customer service is A+++. I have attached 'before' and 'after' pictures (I think). I cut the electrical mount and a few tabs off of the baseplate to give it a cleaner look. I will hide the wires behind the grill and bring them out when in use. Also purchased a few plastic caps to cover tubes.

Very good fit. Easy to install. Directions were fairly easy to follow. Will be towing behind our Winnebago Journey. This is my 3rd baseplate from trailer. Great company and customer service.

Read the directions twice, watched install video and everything went together smoothly. It is necessary to pay attention to positioning so holes drill easily, l painted the bare metal at the drilled locations to prevent future rust.

The baseplates were fairly easy to install. I tow my Tacoma behind my Tiffin Phaeton. My first trip was from Eugen, Oregon to Tucson, Arizona; 1400 miles. It was like it wasn't even hooked to my rv.

I did some research and decided this was the best route to set up my 2012 Tacoma to tow behind my RV. Very clean install and the plates are very unobtrusive.

Everything lined up nicely - no holes to ream out and no banging on stuff to make it fit. The paper instructions left me unsure about the placement of a bolt, but the video cleared it all up. Our CR-V looks almost stock with the adapters removed. Good product! Entire installation took about two hours.

Great product. Fitment on our 2008 Chevy Tahoe was as the instructions suggested. Drilling through the frame was required, and took a little time. The first side I worked on took about 3 hours whereas the 2nd side only took about 1.5 hrs. Very happy with the product.

Perfect for our tow vehicle. We did have a local shop do the install for us. We have flat towed our car over 5000 miles since with absolutely no problems.

The base plate is very strong. Shipping was fast. And the YouTube videos were very detailed and easy to follow. Much better than looking at a photo copied picture that has been copied time and time again which is what most companies furnish with their instructions. We are very happy with our purchase.

I love the quality of the products I ordered. Customer relations was very good as well, they kept me informed and even though it took several weeks and etrailer had to wait on items to get to them, I was communicated to well. I know it’s important in who you deal within this day and time and you can trust etrailer.
