Roadmaster Base Plates - 1555-3

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

Designed specifically for heavy-duty applications, direct-connect brackets install onto your vehicle'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.

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. 782347

Great Roadmaster tow brackets. Much cheaper than any where else and wonderful people to deal with. They answered all of my questions, changed the bracket to a better one and were very helpful. After i changed my order 2 days after the order the packages arrived on the earlier promised date. 204422

Great! We have towed our Equinox all over Texas. All we have to do is take out one 5 amp fuse shift to neutral and go as stated in owners guide.

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. 436995

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. 752714

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. 719311

Product is fine, but the packaging was almost destroyed. I would suggest you ship the bolts and nuts in a seperate box, as there were some missing. 822504

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Base Plates

  • Compatibility of Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar with MX Base Plates
    According to my Roadmaster representative, their older # 5250 Falcon tow bar is indeed compatible with MX base plates. To wire the tow vehicle and the CRV together, there are some different alternatives. A wiring kit like # RM-154 from Roadmaster would permanently tap into the vehicle's wiring. I've linked a video of the install for you. A bulb and socket kit like # RM-155 would permanently install an extra bulb into each taillight assembly. The installation is permanent, but allows...
