Roadmaster Base Plates - 1427-1

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your vehicle'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.

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

Put it on a 2014 Ford F150 STX 4X4 with hardly any trouble. However still need an extra part to connect the base plate to my tow bar. You may want to ask a couple more questions than I did and get all your needed parts in one shot. 170491

Etrailer once again did not disappoint. Service was fast, fairly priced, totally complete. Video that was emailed to me was extremely helpful in tackling a daunting task that I was totally unfamiliar with and saved me hours of trying to figure out what had to be dismantled to accomplish the job. Again thank you etrailer and Sal who was extremely helpful. 369757

I purchased these for my new toad . I had purchased the entire towing system for my toad through etrailer I totaled my toad Sept 2018. I had to replace the 199-5 unit that bolts up to the frame of my new toad. This was the second time dealing with etrailer. Fast frendly quick service. Quality products and the sales representatives are extremely knowledgeable of all the products that they offer for your needs. I would rate etrailer Service, Sales dept and shipping dept A++. If you DEMAND Quality products and a sales representative that is extremely knowledge of all your needs. You can't go wrong with etrailer. Best Regards Ray 639676

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    To flat tow your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee you would need to first start with a base plate kit. For that the Roadmaster kit part # 1427-1 is a confirmed fit and would work well. 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...

  • How to Determine if 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo can Be Flat Towed
    I did some checking on whether your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo can be flat towed and if the vehicle has the Quadra Track II or Quadra Drive II 4WD it can be flat towed. But if you have the Quadra Trac I it cannot be flat towed. How you'll know this is if the transfer case has a neutral position. If it does, then it's flat towable. The Roadmaster base plate kit part # 1427-1 that you referenced would then be the correct fit. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a...

    Yes, the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 1427-1 for your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee would work with the Blue Ox Rangefinder II to Roadmaster Bracket Adapter # RM-037.

  • Recommended Tow Bar Wiring For 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I called my contact at Hopkins and asked about your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. They told me that you can look on the door jamb of your Jeep for a sticker that should have the manufacture date. If your Jeep was built from January to mid June then it is the early year model and the correct harness is part # HM56206. If you find that it was built after mid-year then the right harness is part # HM56207. If using a supplemental brake system a brake light relay like part # RM-88400 is required. Another...

  • Base Plate Kit, Tow Bar, Safety Chains, and Light Kit to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Falcon Tow Bar, # RM-520, needs to fit on the base plates that are vehicle specific for your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I recommend the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 1427-1 (will not fit the SRT-8 model or those with a brushguard). These base plates will work with the Falcon Tow Bar. You will also need safety cables or chains as required by law. This is so if the vehicle becomes detached from the tow bar, the chains will keep the vehicle in tow until you can stop and correct the...

  • Parts Needed for Flat Towing 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    If a tow bar like the Roadmaster StowMaster # RM-501 is properly maintained, kept clean and protected during storage periods then it could be perfectly fine. If the tow bar is 10 years old and has never been serviced then a rebuild kit may be in order. For the Stowmaster RM-501 the rebuild kit is part # RM-910003-20. We offer tow bar cover # RM-052-3 for the StowMaster. For a compatible set of base plates I recommend Roadmaster's XL base plate kit # 1427-1. These work with the StowMaster...

    When using the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, item # RM-154, you will need to determine the tail light wiring system on each vehicle. If your motor home has a trailer connector at the rear of the vehicle to start with, or it is a combined system that has the brake and turn signals on the same circuit you will need to use the combined RV to separate towed vehicle wiring diagram, second one down on the RM-154 product page.

  • Will the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit Part # 1427-3 Fit My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    For your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee the base plate kit you will need is either the Roadmaster XL base plate kit, part number 1427-1, or Roadmaster MX Base plate kit, part number 1427-3. Either kit will work on your vehicle, selection will depend on the tow bar you own or select and the features of each style of base plate kit.

  • Base Plate Kit Compatibility with 2004 and Surrounding Years Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I reached out to my tech contact at Roadmaster and he said they don't have what vehicle the 1419-1 fits in their fit guide. They only have that it was listed as obsolete in 2004 so unfortunately I can't help you with that fit. The correct kit for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee is # 1425-1. It looks like you have a model year close to that, so if you have a 2001-2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee you will want # 1419-7. If you have a 2005 model, you will want # 1427-1 which also fits 2006-2010 models...

  • Can Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar be Used to Flat Tow a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Since the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar # RM-020 is rated for 5,000 lbs you can use it to flat tow your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # 1427-1. Just be sure that your Jeep stays under that 5,000 lb weight capacity. To complete your flat towing setup I also recommend using the 68" Safety Cables # RM-643, Optronics Magnetic Towing Lights # TL21RK, and the Brake Buddy Classic # HM39494.

    Roadmaster Base Plate kit # 1427-1 is a correct fit for your 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited so long as it is NOT the SRT-8 version and does NOT have a brush guard installed.
