2013 Honda Pilot - Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Twist Lock Attachment

Roadmaster's crossbar-style brackets are virtually invisible, easy to mount, and simple to remove. Brackets install on your Honda Pilot's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design provides improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Drawbars are easily removable - just twist and pull
    • No pins or clips required
  • 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 drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style series base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove, simply twist the arms back and pull them out. 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.

I purchased this EZ4 base plate to work in conjunction with the Falcon2 tow bar. It fit perfectly on my Wrangler Unlimited, and is tucked mostly out of site when not used. The two baseplate arms bolted to the cross bar of the Falcon2 are easily removed and stored away when not in use. Installation because of the weight and tight fit to the Wrangler frame, was found to be much easier with two people. 554274

Amazing how much bulk there is to this base compared to the base I used on my Pickup truck. Going to get them mounted on the new vehicle and give them a test soon 572894

This is the adapter kit i needed for my 2019 Jeep Cherokee to flat tow it behind my Class A Motorhome. At the time I first ordered this kit the factory still had to finish the design process as we had purchased the Jeep when it came out in 2018. It took about 6 weeks for the factory to call me to say it was done and could be ordered. My RV mechanic installed it and it went very well according to him. I towed the Jeep this weekend and it worked flawlessly. It replaces the tow hooks on the front of the Jeep. Everything arrived very quickly and in perfect order from etrailer. 694234

I installed the trailer hitch first and it was quite simple, total time about 1 hour. Next I installed the EZ4 base plate kit on our 2017 GMC Terrain, a little bit more difficult, but the step by step video made the whole process much simpler, in fact, I kept my laptop in the garage while I was doing the installation and stopped/started as it did the work. I can't thank you enough for the video clips, they are a tremendous help. We will be leaving in a week or so, can't wait to try it out. 515670

Great product with good directions to peel back the "plastic" front end parts to reach where they mount. Plus etrailer staff backup to answer any questions that may come up. 429596

Great product for my 2014 Wrangler. Good materials, solid attachment to vehicle, and looks good. The e trailer installation video was great for assisting installation. Made the install much quicker and easier. The most difficult procedure for me was disconnecting the wiring harness on the back of the bumper. An old tack puller (or tool of similar design) would have been great for leveraging the pins out of their holes. Cutting the air dam was a slow process to ensure I didn't cut too much. A paper template to mark where to cut the air dam would make this process much simpler. Again, I can't emphasize enough how great the installation video was for making the steps easier. 126011

2014 FIAT 500L Trekking. Shipping was pretty good... received product in 9 days. Kit includes removable arms. Good Instructions. We had never installed anything requiring body removal. Overall the installation took us 4 hrs. Someone familiar with bodywork could shave an hour or 2 off the job. We took some time carefully working the base plate around the AC tubing. Overall it was easier to install than I expected and looks great. 186478

We have towed the FIAT 10K miles with no problems. Working good for us.

All was delivered and I have installed it. Only thing wrong with the RM-521448-4 Roadmaster Crossbar-Style base plate kit was that one of the 1-*1/2" x 3"threaded backing plate would not tighten down. Had to toss it and put in heavy duty washer and Nut and tighten it down. Otherwise great product and easy to install. 658514

Very Happy! The shipping was fast; 3 days, including Thanks Giving. I was able to instal the base plat myself, just following the installation video on their web site. I watched it a couple of times while I was waiting for delivery, and then followed it step by step during installation. I wouldn't have dared attempt it myself without the video. I also installed the Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs-RM-155 using the same method. Everything went without a problem. I will be buying from eTrailer again. 588968

Installed it myself on a 2017 Ford Focus. Watched a few videos on how to pull front bumper and install mount. The hardest part was making the holes in the steel front bumper. I like the fact I can remove the outside mounts that the hitch mounts to. I’ve pulled the car about 5,000 miles behind the rv with no problems. 698216

The units went on my Chevy truck great and they work well the only problem is I can't take off my tow bar unless I unbolt it from the base plates so I have to leave the unit on all the time. It would take 4 bolts to remove . Then I could unlock the base plates and turn them in order to remove them. 443465


Comments
The base plates they are working fine I dont remove them they stay on all the time it has been 2 years now the tow bar that I use is bolted on so I would have to remove them to get the s out I should do this some time so they dont rust in place but real nice right now .

The Base Plates are performing as expected, unfortunately chipping paint has plagued these Base Plates. This chipping paint has occurred along both of the leading edge of where the tow bar mounts. This has not been caused from abuse/misuse, it started happening soon after began using. Should not have happened so soon. 710582

Review from a similar EZ4 in Base Plates


The Roadmaster base plate kit is well made and fit the Jeep JK very well. The assembly instructions were detailed and accurate with the exception of how to cut the plastic splash/rock guard under the bumper. I questioned the dimensions provided and checked prior to cutting. I was able remove less material resulting in a better fit. The threaded plates with wire attached are not long enough to prevent spinning when torqueing the bolts attaching the bracket to the vehicle frame. I was able to use a 7/8 open end wrench to hold the plates while torqueing the bolts. A little frustrating but as there isn't much room to access the upper plate. Roadmaster should consider manufacturing those plates longer to prevent spinning. The customer service from Etrailer was excellent. Tammie expedited my order and provided notification when shipped and delivered. Tammie is a 5 star representative and I appreciate her attention to my order. I recommend Roadmaster products and Etrailer. 876649
