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 Nighthawk, 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.

I bought and self installed this on my 2021 GMC Sierra Duramax 1 year ago. Install took about 5 hours and wasn't difficult...I could problty install it in 2-3 hours after leaening the tricks. Weve towed the truck all over the USA since then (over 10,0000 miles) and it works great! I've used other brands and highly recommend Roadmaster tow systems over the competition.

Installed on my 2020 Jeep Cherokee for flat towing behind our motorhome . I wanted a tow bar connection that integrated with the front end of the Jeep and the removable arms did the trick . I had one issue with the driver side receiver bracket not lining up with the upper mount bolt hole on the Jeep, image 0547. Had to make a slight adjustment to the receiver bracket so the holes would line up, image 0551 and image 0559. The rest of the install went smoothly
I also installed the Demco braking Stay n Play Duo system , image 0565 which went in without any issues, image 6028. 7 thousand miles of towing later, couldn't be happier with the products

This is a rock solid baseplate. Installed on a 2023 Equinox LT (AWD). I followed etrailer's videos for installation and they are spot on. We connect with a Roadmaster Nighthawk tow bar, charge line kit, smart diode lighting kit, and a Demco Stay-in-Play supplimental braking system. It is fairly well hidden when not in-use. This setup is great!

I installed them on my new RAM 1500. Works great, very heavy duty. I also modified and attached a push bumper and used the Roadmaster base plates.



by:

Installed on my 2020 jeep jl sport s with factory plastic bumper and plastic rock guard. Shane’s video was very helpful but I did not like how the metal plate behind the rock guard was cut away and how the rock guard had two big cut outs so I did some modifications. I cut two slots in the metal bracket and added angle brackets for extra support. As a result i did not use the supplied brackets for the rock guard. I created a template for the rock guard which resulted in two small cut outs. A lot of extra time but i am retired so time is relative. I think it looks great.

  • Can Skid Plate of 2022 Jeep Gladiator Stay On with Install of Roadmaster Base Plate Kit
    You will need to cut a slot in the skid plate of your 2022 Jeep Gladiator for the Roadmaster base plate kit part # RM77VR to fit. This is covered in the attached instructions link. I looked up the Warn winch plate that fits your vehicle and based on how it installs it wouldn't interfere either.

  • Which Rock Guard For Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plates on Jeep Gladiator
    Hey Justin, good question so I checked directly with Roadmaster for you, and verified the correct rock guard for the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM77VR on your Jeep Gladiator is the following: - Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screen # RM-4750 Definitely a smart idea getting a rock guard to keep that iconic Jeep front looking as good as new.

  • What Is The Life Expectancy Of A Blue Ox Tow Bar
    Hi Andy, Blue Ox states that their tow bars have a life expectancy of 8-10 years and recommend servicing them every 2 years. If you reach out to Blue Ox they will service your Aventa LX tow bar or let you know if the tow bar is in need of replacement. If the tow bar is in need of replacement then you'll want to first see what brand/style baseplate is on/going to be on your towed vehicle and then choose a compatible tow bar so that you don't have to purchase an additional adapter to go...

  • Baseplate Compatibility For A 2021 Jeep Gladiator With A Bulldog JL Winch Mount # 341
    Hi Aaron, The Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 you were wanting to install is going to mount in the same space as the winch mount so you'd have to either modify how the winch attaches to the frame in order to mount both. The Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM77VR mounts to the outside of the frame and shouldn't interfere with how the winch plate mounts, but the crosstube could pose an issue since it sits below the the frame rails where the winch plate would....

  • Does Roadmaster Base Plate Kit RM77VR Use Standard Pin Size for Tow Bar
    The Roadmaster Direct Connect base plate kit part # RM77VR uses the standard pin size where it connects to a Roadmaster tow bar like the Blackhawk # RM-422. There would be no need to use a larger pin.

  • Correct Base Plate for Jeep Gladiator Mojave w/ Roadmaster Nighthawk Tow Bar
    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. The etrailer brand # e98967 base plates aren't compatible with the Gladiator Mojave.

  • 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.
