Ford F-150 Tow Bars Questions

  • The Roadmaster Stowmaster tow bar part # RM-501 has a 6k weight capacity so it would work to tow your 2016 Ford F-150 as the weights I looked up for it are between 4 and 5.2k. For a base plate kit you would need to go with a new one since a kit from a Chevy truck would not fit. You would have to use the XL kit part # RM-4431-1A as that is what's compatible with your truck and the tow bar. If you were in need of safety cables you would then also need the part # RM-643 which...

  • The Roadmaster Falcon 2 part # RM-520 would be a great tow bar for flat towing your 2016 Ford F-150 as it weighs less than the capacity of the tow bar and because this is one of the nicest tow bars around. You are also correct that the part # 4431-3 does not require the use of a crossbar.

  • First you will want to start with a base plate kit for your 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum 4WD. For that you would want the Roadmaster kit part # RM-4431-1A that has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The arms of the kit are removable so when you aren't flat towing the vehicle you wouldn't have two large metal arms sticking out of the front of the vehicle. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking...

I have included a link to a help article that explains how to measure to...

  • You can use the Falcon 2, part # RM-520 to tow your F-150. The tow bar has a 6,000 lb limit so you will be within the capacity.

If you do not have EcoBoost on your truck you can use part # 495-1A. If you do have EcoBoost on your truck the base plates that will work are part # RM-524431-5. Since you have already been flat-towing you probably...

  • Sounds like you wired for color when you need to be wiring for function. What you will want to do is plug in your 7 way into your RV, then take a circuit tester like # 3808 and test the 4 way end to determine function. You are going to want to wire the vehicle side 4 way round to match the 4 way round on the tow vehicle by function and not according to the video.

  • The first thing you will want to do is consult the owners manual for your 2013 Ford F-150 for specific information on flat towing it. You will need 5 basic components to flat tow a vehicle: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates there are several options depending on the trim level of your truck. Blue Ox base plates # BX2635 will fit XL, XLT, FX2, FX4, Lariat, Limited, and Platinum models all with EcoBoost. Base plates #...

  • To flat tow your 2013 Ford F-150 Supercrew you will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cable set, tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and most likely a high-low adapter. The Tow Bar that I recommend using is the Blue Ox Aventa LX # BX7445 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and comes with safety cables. Since it uses telescoping arms it is much easier to hook up to your base plates over some other models. I prefer the Blue Ox Base Plate kits that allow you to remove...

  • To determine if you can use your Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar, # BX4325, with your 2013 Ford F-150 you have to look at the base plates that are available. All of the Blue Ox base plates for the 2013 Ford F-150 are compatible with the Aladdin tow bar. But to select the correct ones I will need to know if your Lariat has the EcoBoost motor or not. If it does not then you will need to use Roadmaster base plates and an adapter. So, for a Lariat with EcoBoost use Blue Ox base plates...

  • As long as your truck is not an FX2 model, either the # BX2606 or # BX2641 base plates will work for you. If you prefer base plate with removable bars, go with the # BX2606. The # BX2641 features standard, non-removable bars. The Aventa towbar you mentioned, part # BX7445 is a good choice for larger, heavier vehicles like your F150. Safety cables are also included. Your ability to install this yourself will depend on your mechanical ability. The install is pretty involved,...

  • The Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 that you referenced is universal so it should work very well on your new 2013 Ford F150. The base plate kit you would want would be the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2606, and it is confirmed to work with your Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar # BX4325. Your tow bar has capacities of 7,500 lbs and since your vehicle weighs 5,300 lbs you would have plenty of capacity. I attached an FAQ article on flat towing for you to check out also.

  • You are on the right track, the Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar, # BX7445, is a good starting point for flat towing your 2012 Ford F-150. This tow bar includes safety cables so you will not need to purchase those separately. Next, you should check your trucks owners manual for towability and pre tow procedures to make sure it can be flat towed. My information shows that if you have a 2 wd manual transmission, Raptor or SVT, the vehicle is not flat towable. If you have a 4 wd automatic...

  • To flat tow your vehicle, you will need a tow bar, base plates that install on the vehicle and provide a connection point, safety cables, a wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. The Blue Ox Aventa, part # BX7445 would be a great choice. The 360 degree swivel and self-aligning design make hitching the vehicle very easy, even on on terrain that is not pool-table flat. The 10,000 capacity of the Aventa will handle the weight of your F150 with no problem. Safety cables...

  • For your 2011 F150 Lariat with the 5.0L engine, I would recommend the Roadmaster # 495-1A base plate kit. I have phoned Roadmaster and confirmed the compatibility of this kit with your vehicle. According to Remco Towing, which is our go-to source in determining the ability of a given vehicle to be flat towed, your truck will require the installation of a driveshaft coupling in order to be flat towed safely. I would urge you to confirm this for yourself by consulting your owners...

  • First you'll want to check your Ford owner's manual to confirm your particular truck, with its specific mix of cab style, engine, transmission and suspension components, has the required towing capacity for your 6500-lb trailer. If you cannot verify this in the manual your local dealership can look up the truck's VIN to confirm its tow rating. I checked the online manual for the 2010 F-150 and on pages 256-258 the towing capacities of the different configurations are listed....

  • Since your 2007 Ford F-150 4x4 has a manual transfer case and not the electronic shift on the fly feature, you can flat tow the truck. But, you will want to confirm this by consulting the vehicle owners manual for the proper towing procedure. You will first want to install base plates on the truck. I recommend using XL style base plates # 495-1A because there are a lot of compatible tow bar options for the XL style plates. For a tow bar, you you will be using a pintle hitch...

  • You will need to check with your vehicle manufacturer or owners manual for instructions on the proper procedure for towing your vehicle, because some vehicles must be equipped with a transmission lube pump, an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, or free-wheeling hubs before they can be towed. Your 2007 Ford F-150 2WD Super Cab 4-Door can be flat towed as is if it has a manual transmission. The 2WD models can not be flat towed if it has an automatic transmission. If...

  • Since your truck is pushing the limit of 5,000 pounds for some tow bars then I recommend Roadmaster base plates # 495-1A and using Blackhawk tow bar, # RM-422, with safety cables # BX88197. The tow bar and cables are rated for 10,000 pounds. Next you will need a lighting kit like # RM-154 for frequent flat towing or # C-ATL20A for a magnetic kit for infrequent towing. And finally most states require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being flat towed. One of the...
