Roadmaster Base Plates - RM-521447-5

  • Removable Drawbars
  • Roadmaster
  • Twist Lock Attachment

Designed for use with motor-home-mounted tow bars, the direct-connect brackets are virtually invisible, easy to mount and remove, and they eliminate the need for a quick-disconnect crossbar on your tow bar. Installs on your vehicle's frame.


Features:

  • Direct-connect brackets provide attachment points for your motor-home-mounted tow bar
  • Streamlined design creates supremely clean look
    • No obtrusive quick-disconnect crossbar
    • Hidden brackets sit even farther back than standard brackets
  • Drawbars attach and remove quickly and easily
    • Arms click to lock in place in brackets
    • Built-in pull rings let you unlock arms so you can twist and remove them
  • 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 Roadmaster motor-home-mounted tow bars only
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


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


The drawbars, or front arms, on this 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 each arm, simply tug the built-in pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the arm back and pull it out of the bracket. 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 install was pretty straightforward on my 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude. I found a youtube video on how to remove the front bumper. The only issue is how much grill to cut to allow the base plates to poke through. You have to cut way more than indicated in the instructions.

Installed the baseplate myself. Just followed the directions and it went well. Have used it for about 4000 miles. Easy to connect to the tow bar. Great produce.

I installed the product myself two years ago. Installation instructions were detailed and easy to follow. I have towed the car approximately 8000 miles over the past two years and it has been solid to use and easy to connect to each time.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Regards base plate installation 2021 mini cooper I like to thank you for all your help, everyone at etrailer was very helpful. The quality of the part are excellent and the instructions are right on. One important task before starting is to check all the hardware included in the Kit, on mine was one 1 “ pipe spicer missing which I only noticed during the installation and lost some time with this. One other suggestion in regards to the horn installation mounting it directly to the support bracket will bend the connection clip. I made a little bracket to create more space. Everything else went very smooth. Great product and service.

Everything installed perfectly and the instructions where clear. I didn't care for the instruction to cut up the metal rock guard for the crossbar, but otherwise am pleased with the installation result. We have since travelled 1,200 miles with this set up connected to a Nighthawk tow bar, and are 100% happy with the performance, and are especially pleased with the ease of connection and disconnection.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Was delivered quickly and I was able to install the baseplate assembly relatively easily after having watched a few of the etrailer videos. I did watch multiple different videos as my 2022 Grand Cherokee WK had slight variations from the videos. I did not have previous experience doing this type of automotive work so I will admit to some trepidation along the way but all ended perfectly. My wife was not too happy about me taking the bumper off of her new car with just 100 miles on it but she has regrouped. The only thing I used the written instructions for was to get the parts all organized and to get the correct torque for the bolts

Roadmaster system is top notch. Installation was not bad. Getting bumper to line up with holes in new bracket was difficult, due to very tight tolerance. We have towed 4 down over 4,000 miles with this set up, no issues at all. Towing 4 down is the only way to go!!

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


I have a 2019 GMC Denali and this product from Roadmaster is fantastic. Installation was easy with out having to remove the grill or valance or bumper. There was no trimming on the Plastic. The baseplate installed from the rear with a little push and nudge. there was one bolt just a tad long but this was fixed with a washer. If this is your model of vehicle and you don't want to trash the front get this base plate.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Solid construction sorta...down right dumb install on older JKs. The secondary plates are not particularly well engineered and a real bandaid on less than perfect design. They are however needed, as mounting to only the vertical frame tubes will likely impart too much torsion on the welds that hold those tubes to the main frame rails. Especially so as the need for aggressive braking, or even a panic stop inevitably arises. I really dislike the mount bracket tubes for an electrical tow plug receptacle. Since I had already had one mounted in the bumper from a previous tow system, I just cut those 1/4" tubes off so that I never get injured on them...along with what ever the flat plate welded on near those tubes was for. There are no holes in the outer frame rails, as all the videos and install instructions show. So? You'll need to try to GUESS where to align and where to drill the outer holes. Guessing that they will be relatively centered in the body frame mount bracket, will cause a fail. You'll need to drill a second hole. Oversizing those holes was about the only way to get reasonable alignment for the bolt to make both holes, the bushing and the add on bracket. OEM power steering hydraulic lines, will rub on the long bolts heads once everything is installed. You'll need to engineer some sort of vibration isolators or stand offs to prevent chaffing through those aluminum tubes. If you're not careful with your drilling you may even drill into the lower corner of your radiator. None of the instructions discuss any of these product design shortfalls.


Comments
In the instructions it mentions that sometimes the outer frame rail will have no holes. I would hold the baseplate up and mark the area needed for the hole to be drilled.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


I purchased this baseplate system for a 2014 Ford Focus. Just finished installing it. Excellent instructions and online video. Make sure you watch it and follow the paper instructions. Let me inform anyone attempting this on your own it is a process. You need to remove the entire front fascia and headlights. The undercarriage plastic air dams also have to come off. This is not difficult if you are a decent mechanic/collision person. If you plan on tackling this yourself allow 3-5 hours if you are a capable individual. If not, take it to a shop you trust. I personally have a shop and all the jacks and tools required. It took me approximately 4-1/2 hours start to finish. But I had a/c, lights, music and my dog kReaping me company. The most frustrating part was drilling the two access hole in the frame. Not sure what that metal alloy is but a dulled my drills and ruined a perfectly good high end hole saw. I ended up using a pnuematic cut off Grinder. I am very satisfied with the end result. Take your time. Don’t let yourself get aggravated and the install should go smooth. Save a bunch installing it yourself. Good Luck. Thanks RoadMaster and etrailer.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Installing the 2020 Chevy Equinox base plate was easy. Perfect directions and videos helped a lot. Taking the front end off a brand new car was scary. Only real hard part came when trying to determine which parts of the from grill to cut the openings for the quick connections and the wiring connector protrusions. The cuts have to be made prior to reinstalling the grill and you can't really see where to cut without the grill in the correct configuration on the fender. So you cut and trim to fit. Then get the grill into the fender connector then check and make additional cuts as necessary. Also I installed a Invisibrake inside of the engine bay, not under the back seat. This was my wife's suggestion and she was correct. It fits and you only have to run the little air tube through the firewall. No taking apart of the interior molding except the driver kick panel for the pneumatic cylinder. Very easy.

9000 miles from Myrtle beach SC to Seattle WA and back with no issues. Our towing system works great. My wife and I are a team when hooking up or unhooking our car from the RV. We can do it in under 2 minutes. Great products, and a fantastic wife.

  • Fit of the Falcon 2 Towbar to the Roadmaster Baseplate part # RM-521447-5

  • How to Disable the Auto Park Brake for Flat-Towing on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee
    According to the owner's manual for your 2018 Jeep Cherokee, "You must ensure that the Auto Park Brake feature is disabled before towing this vehicle, to avoid inadvertent Electric Park Brake engagement. The Auto Park Brake feature is enabled or disabled via the customer programmable features in the Uconnect Settings".

  • Recommended Tail Light Wiring For Flat-Towed 2018 Jeep Cherokee With Bike Rack Blocking Taillights
    The 4-pin on the rear of your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Overland wouldn't have power running to it unless it the vehicle was running so the simplest option would be to just bypass the wiring you installed when you plan on flat-towing your vehicle and hauling your bikes and instead using some magnetic lights instead like the Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights - Red Incandescent # 73864 or the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164 if you would like a wireless connection.
