Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

Reviewing the video on the website I was able to get my grill and bumper off to install the baseplate. I had one issue with a screw bracket but one call to etrailer got a replacement put in the mail to me. Very minor trimming of the bumper to get it back on over the base bracket. The finished look is great, of course you can see the base plate but it blends in nicely and looks professional. The blueox hitch fits perfectly on the base plate. No more having to deal with my mastertow dolly and man handling where to put it after we get to the campground, and no more having to ratchet the tires to the dolly. Now we are looking forward to taking my jeep with us on trips, just release the 2 pins to detach, no more back breaking of pushing the tow dolly anymore 720871

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

I purchased this with the intent of having my local RV repair shop install it for me. I was curious about how it was installed so I read the directions and thought, this doesn’t look that hard. I was right. The directions were clear and accurate and in a little over two hours I was closing the hood on a finished install. Quality all the way around and really fast shipping. Three days after placing my order it was delivered. 667239

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

First, etrailer has come through again. I've been purchasing various components and towing related parts from them for years and never once had an issue. Great work guys. Now on to the product review of the Demco Excali-Bar II tow bar. Right away I liked the fact that it had the breakaway cables pre-mounted and attached to the underside of each tow bar. It makes it very easy to keep it all neat this way. The cables are also polyurethane covered, so fraying shouldn't be an issue from rubbing. The next cool thing is that the tow bar has a built in 3in raise or drop to make the installation parallel to the towed vehicle, plus there is two hitch pin locations for further lateral adjustment. The driver side tow bar also comes with an umbilical cord rod that allows you to keep the electrical umbilical cord attached to the bar without the risk of it dropping down on the pavement during travel and getting chewed up or ripped off - also keeps it clean and eliminates one less thing to consider each time when connecting and disconnecting. Stowing away also gives multiple options as the two bars can either be both on the same side (driver or passenger) or they can be split (one on each side). I purchased the Demco base plates, so no special adapters needed for my vehicle. Tow bar hook up and disconnect takes no more than 5 min. The release levers work as advertised and allowed to disconnect the tow bar even when the towed vehicle wasn't perfectly aligned. These base plates were the only ones that didn't require any drilling or cutting of the trucks frame or other cladding. In all, the Excali-Bar II tow bar is worth every penny. 644474

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

After reviewing the top name brands for tow bars I was really exited first with Roadmaster's pin style base plate connectors, but when I realized that it would require cutting and possibly drilling I took a second look and decided to install the Demco base plates and get the tow bar from them as well. These plates can be installed in a mere 2 hours if you have all the tools ready to go. I have the fortunate luck that my truck is equipped with the air suspension and so lifting it to the highest setting and driving up on 12in ramps gave me ample amount of room to work under the front bumper area. The installation is seriously easy and requires no special tools, other than a set of metric sockets and a torque wrench. The factory tow hooks are removed and these base plates fit in the exact same space without any cutting, not even the plastic cover behind the pumper needed to be removed (though for some odd reason the instructions did and I followed them on the driver side but when I realized that I could install the plate without this step, I omitted it on the passenger side). Despite my initial worry of wanting a nearly invisible look, these bars are remarkably clean looking. 643824

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

If you want one of these for a vehicle that is not all that common, then it is a good idea to give plenty of lead time for manufacture. After waiting a couple of months, I got all the parts together with the help of Dena who is on top of things. Install went well, a couple of more pictures showing orientation would be helpful. The base plate is a good sturdy unit that should give years of trouble free service. 718812

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

Application is for a 2013 Nissan Xterra (manual trans.). I was quite apprehensive about choosing and installing the baseplate. There is plenty of information online, including videos describing installation on several makes and models of towed vehicles, but I didn't find anything specific to the Xterra. The instructions that came with the baseplate are fairly concise, but some of the pictures were not as clear as I would've liked. However, I did "dry fit" all parts before installing, and everything went together well. I was very impressed with the clearances between the baseplate and the Xterra's frame, grill, and bumper - Demco did their homework! One small issue, though: the plastic covers for the mounting tabs don't fit very tightly; would like to see improvement there. Otherwise, very happy! 628247

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

We plan on flat towing our 2015 Ram 1500 tradesman behind our RV and it came with the tow hook when we bought it. I did have to run the truck up on ramps, but then it was about a hour and a half job to remove the tow hooks and brackets and install the base plates. We have not yet pulled the truck, but the installation was okay. 798924

not hard to install, have to drill 2 holes but not a big deal if have equipment, setting up taillights took longer 793877

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

Kind of a mixed feeling review. The baseplate itself is a very nice piece. The instructions given really had not much to do with my application....more like a generic suggested guide. My Chevy Sonic has a turbo which has a whole set of issues to deal with that aren’t even mentioned in the instructions. They sent 1 fish wire to install just 4 bolts...one might think that’s enough till it breaks on the third bolt. The next three hours were spent monkeying the last two bolts into position. Better more specific instructions and at least 2 fish wires and this would have been 5 stars. 777746

Review from a similar Classic in Base Plates

Excellent product. I mounted it on a 2016 Ford Fiesta ST and the pictures showed it being mounted below the bumper. On the ST model there is an intercooler which is in the way of doing this, I had to take the bumper off again, flip the base plate upside down (Demco said this was no problem) drill a few new holes, and mount it above the bumper. tl:dr Do not mount below bumper on ST models, flip and mount above 746111

I usually don't take the time to write reviews. However, Vanessa was such a great help I felt others should know about her commitment to customer service. I was looking for a tow bar system to pull a 1978 Jeep CJ7 behind my motorhome. We talked threw all the options for my purchase and came up with the tow package that was the best fit for my needs. I will be installing the system next week. 730502

Great service - ordered Sunday night, delivered Wednesday lunch time, installed Wednesday afternoon.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2015-2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
    There are a number of parts needed for you to flat tow a 2015-2018 Chevy Silverado 2500, starting with compatible base plates. The correct fit will depend on if you have tow hooks or not. If your Silverado DOES have tow hooks, you need the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit # 3167-3 along with the Roadmaster Nighthawk Tow Bar # RM-676, which I like because of how easy it is to connect to the base plates and the fact it comes with integrated safety cables and LED lights.

  • Flat Towing Parts For A 2011 Chevy 2500 Behind A 2018 Jayco 25 R E450
    Yes you can flat tow a 2011 Chevy 2500 with the Jayco 25 R E450. To do so you will need the following parts: Tow bar, Base plate kit, Safety cable set, Tow bar wiring and supplemental braking system. I recommend the Demco Excali-Bar III Non-Binding Tow Bar - # DM9511013 which includes safety cables so that's one less purchase to make here. Each arm attaches and detaches from base plates with 2 easy-to-access pins and adjustable-width arms fit a wide range of base plates. This saves...

Then there's an 8 foot cord that connects the 6-way and a 7-way on the back of your RV. It also includes the diodes and wiring to install on the Chevy.
