    • Crossbar-style brackets sit far back for a supremely clean look
  • 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

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.

Watched the videos of the install.. Uber easy. Was able to do by myself in about an hour and fifteen minutes. I recommend running the bolts through all the tab nuts before trying to assemble (clean the paint out of threads) Otherwise easy peasy. Spoke to customer service pre-sale to make sure I had everything. Rep was very understanding and found the listings for the parts I needed and put them all in a cart for me. Will continue to shop etrailer FIRST as install videos and customer support are in a league of their own and miles above everyone else.

Typical excellent Roadmaster quality. I installed these myself in something less than two hours. These are very heavy duty and give me confidence that my 2016 F150 will stay attached to my motorhome using the Roadmaster Sterling towbar. I am very happy with the purchase and the service I get from etrailer.

I purchased the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit w/ Removable Arms, The Roadmaster Nighthawk Tow Bar, Quick Disconnect Crossbar, Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, and Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard in order to tow my 2020 Ford Raptor behind my Class A. Everything bolted on beautifully and the craftsmanship was fantastic. Ordering from etrailer was easy and the parts arrived within a few days with no problem. I watched numerous [online] videos to learn how to install everything and they saved me a lot of time. Overall, I'm very happy.

Followed directions and completed job in a little over 4 hours. had trouble reinserting some pins in difficult locations. Later in the month I installed the wiring tow package. Goofed up and crossed a wire and it took me two days to get back under the truck and rewire. all is working great according to directions...……. I will use etrailer again, good service, great service representatives...……..jt

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


The Jeep project went very well everything fit great and worked well. I really love Roadmaster products and quality and your company is the best place to purchase them. I sold the Jeep and replaced it with a new 2019 Chevy Equinox 2.0 L AWD and just purchased and installed the following items from you and installed them, RM-156-25 & RM-156-75 Battery Charge Line Kit, RM-146-7 Flex Coil Kit, RM-523193-4 EZ4 Plate Kit, RM-88333 Custom Seat Adapter, RM-751489 Stop Light Switch Kit and a RM-98160 Second Vehicle Brake Kit w/brakeaway. All these parts were in stock and arrived quickly and normal with you people, I really enjoy the o-line vidios as I do all my own installs. Thank you so much for your great service. I will attach pictures of my install, you will see how I was able to fab a bracket and attach it to the existing mount on the base plate to mount the brakeaway switch and the air connection for the brake system. I also fabricated a tail light bar as I didn't want to use mag-lights or splice into the factory lights and bulbs installed into the lights would not work as the factory brake lights will come on when the brake system is applyed and the turn siginals would not be visable. Thanks for all you do, I would and do recommend you people to everyone who needs your products. Rob


Comments
Everything is working great, I installed a base plate kit, battery charging kit, stop light switch kit, second vehicle air brake kit w brakeaway and seat adapter on our 2019 Chevy Equinox and towed it about 14000 miles behind our motor home this past year and everything worked perfect not a problem with any product. These are great products, everything fit perfectly and performed perfectly. Thank you for great service and great products. Rob

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


I ordered this base plate to be installed on our 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited to allow it to be used with a Roadmaster Tow Bar that we purchased originally in early 2000 to tow our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Yes, 20 years later we are back into RVing and wanted to tow our 2020 Jeep behind our new Jayco Seneca Super-C motorhome. The only difference between 2000 and 2020 is the fact that we needed a brake activation system for our 2020 setup, something that wasn’t required in 2000. Etrailer also sold us the Roadmaster Invisi Brake operating system which we had our local welding fabricator (also RV hitch installation expert) instal. Everything works perfectly and safely. Thank you Etrailer!

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


The base plates were easy to install (great step by step installation instructions)- it is an easy configuration for towing the vehicle. The attaching plates are well hidden from view when not in towing configuration- It is so simple to install the attaching hardware to the base plates sand fool proof -you will know you have the attaching plates properly installed every you use them-


Comments
due to the current pandemic- we have not use the product as we intended-we have use it for several miles for towing our truck- so far it shows to hold its torque and stability-little bet of rust between base plates and engagement parts- i an happy with the hardware as it was recommended by your staff- Installation instructions were impeccable- reminded me of assembly instructions for critical hardware- i am happy with its performance so far

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Hobbyist/Do-it-yourselfer: Installed on my 2016 Ford Fiesta. I was honestly amazed at how simple it was to install this product. Highly recommend watching the video on this sight that is specific to your vehicle before purchasing though. The installation process is pretty involved, and I had to take the entire front end of my car apart. It does come with very detailed installation instructions with pictures included for each step. This reassured any questions that I may have had during the installation process. It has a very snug fit. I only had problems lining up one of the bolt holes, but that was easily corrected with my Dremel. Only advice: Don't try to pry the bar into place through the bolt holes. You can/will damage the threads if you try to do this. Just use a Dremel to widen the hole on the car's crash bar very slightly. Widening the hole a small amount won't have any negative effects on the structural support of your crash bar, and it will make it even easier to install the inserted bracket.


Comments
After one year, this product has proven to be well worth the expense. We flat-towed our 2016 Ford Fiesta all the way across the country without any issues. The product worked exactly as described, and was very user friendly. Highly recommended.

  • Difference Between Crossbar Style Baseplate and Direct Connect Baseplate Towing 2019 Ford F-150
    The main difference between the Roadmaster Crossbar Style Baseplate # RM-524431-4 and the Roadmaster Direct Connect Baseplate # RM-524431-5 comes down to the ease of installation of the tow bars; typically vehicles that require some extra stability will only have the crossbar style available. Crossbar style tow bars are traditionally going to be much heavier and more difficult to install on the tow vehicle than the direct connects, but once you're pulling I don't think you'll notice a considerable...

    Roadmaster has confirmed for us that the base plate kit part # RM-524431-4 that you referenced does fit the EcoBoost models of your 2018 Ford F-150. The arms of the kit come out below the front bumper of the truck where the tow hooks normally are at so the license plate would not be an issue. I looked up as many pictures as I could find that showed the front end of your truck and was not able to see any ecoboost models that had a license plate covering where the base plate kit would install.
