Roadmaster Base Plates - RM77VR

  • 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.

4500 miles of flat towing my 2022 Jeep Gladiator JT Mojave through 12 states with no issues. This was the base plate recommended for the Mojave model by eTrailer and it worked perfect. The skid plate needed to be cut, but it did not affect functionality. Great service, good prices, and fast shipping, thank you!

This did not fit my 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. It was about 1/4 to narrow to fit.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. For a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon with a steel or plastic bumper you would need part # RM-521453-5

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


etrailer.com site was easy to use and place my order, plus it arrived on time.
The base plate fits perfectly on my 2021 Nissan Versa. I had the Road Master Falcon 2 set up on my motor home towing a 1999 Toyota Solara and it was time to get a new Toad. After a lot of searching we settled on the Versa and I will say that the base plate fits perfectly and looks great with and W/O the "ready to tow" set-up installed. I would recommend Road Master to anyone looking for a cost effective 4 wheel down set-up.


Comments
Still working great. The only thing I wish I could get is “plugs or covers” that go in the holes on the “baseplate” that are exposed after you remove the tow setup components.

The baseplate kit was very easy to install and a perfect fit! Unless you look close it’s hard to notice the factory tow hooks are not there.

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.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


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


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.


Comments
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


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

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


This base plate is for the 2021 Lincoln Navigator. I have a 2022 and it fits fine. The instructions are nearly the same. Use Roadmaster Wiring Kit W Smart Diodes For Led Bulbs and splice into the stop light.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


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!!




by:

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Instructions were great however the passenger side required that I spend some time widening some holes as they didn't line up. I read another buyer had the same issue. Thankfully I was able to make it work. I also have a block heater which apparently isn't supported but I made it work.

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.

For the installation the instructions were good, but watching some videos made it much easier to take apart a brand new car. All went well. Installed on a 2020 Chevy Equinox 2.0

Great fit - The instructions were spot on. etrailer’s instruction videos are extremely helpful. I rate the level of difficulty on the GX to be moderate due to the difficulty removing/installing the front fascia.

    We have a base plate kit that will work for you. The Roadmaster # RM77VR EZ5 base plate kit is compatible with the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave. Because its a direct connect style base plate, it'll work great with the Roadmaster # RM-676 Nighthawk All-Terrain tow bar.

  • Base Plate RM67VR VS RM77VR Comparison And Compatibility With RM-422 Tow Bar
    Both Item # RM77VR and Item # RM67VR are the same cross-bar style base plate but with different connection arms so installation will be the exact same for both. Since you're using the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 10K Item # RM-422 both base plates will work with this tow bar but the RM67VR will be slightly less time to connect because the # RM-422 comes with the same connection plates already installed.

    The difference between the # RM-154 and the # RM-152-98146-7 is the trailer connector and the umbilical. The # RM-154 provides 4 circuits to the towed vehicle, right turn/brake lamp, left turn/brake lamp, running lamps and ground.
