Roadmaster Tow Bar Base Plate

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Draw Bars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your vehicle's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar. The visible portions of the brackets can be removed when you are not towing.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design - drawbars are easily removable via 2 pins
    • Improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • 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 tow bars with use of quick-disconnect crossbar (910021-00 - sold separately)
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


The square drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style base plate kit are simple to mount and remove, easily securing with hitch pins. 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.

Recently, we decided to setup our 2008 Wrangler JK to be towed behind the motorhome. All I needed were base plates because we had a previous tow car. After doing a search for parts, I decided on etrailer.com to be the source. The product search was easy and the descriptions along with the large photos helped me determine my mechanical skills were enough to install the plates. The order process was quick and easy and the tracking info was helpful. A three day delivery delay occurred due to a snow storm in the mid-west. Once the parts arrived, I installed the parts in about four hours. The instructions were easy to follow, the pictures helped determine the procedure for installing, and everything fit as expected. I could not be more pleased with the base plates and etrailer.com. Thanks very much!

All of the parts work perfectly. They make connecting the Jeep easy and we are very happy. Thanks very much!

I ordered these brackets to tow my Jeep Wrangler behind my motorhome. Having used this brand before I knew the quality I would get and was not disappointed. The original order had 2 left side brackets and no right side brackets so after a call to customer support the correct part was sent. They even gave me a follow-up call to make sure I was taken care of. Mistakes happen but how a company responds to those mistakes is what really matters. These are people you can count on. I am a customer for life.

I bought these base plates from eTrailer for my 2008 Jeep Wranger. They bolt right right on the Jeep with the included hardware and work great. I have been using my Stowmaster Tow Bar for over 20 years and have never had an issue with it or the many different base plates I have purchase for my vehicles in that time. I highly recommend Roadmaster base plates and the Stowmaster tow bar.

Always great dealing with etrailer, their customer service is excellent. They give great suggestions and guidance on the right products for your needs. They are a fantastic resource...saving you both time and money.

The Roadmaster cross-bar base plate kit works great, was at a fair price and shipped quickly. We have had it a year now with no problems. Works as advertised and is the right towing solution for our motorhome.

Purchased base plates for my Wrangler on line and was very impressed with the service from etrailer. product was delivered a few days earlier than expected and exactly what was ordered. Installation was implemented according to the instructions provided with no surprises.



by:
2007 Jeep Wrangler

It was a great fit to my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I struggled with some crusty bolt on the Jeep but no issues with the base plates. I might suggest to Roadmaster that the installation would have been easier if they had included 4 of the threaded backing plates instead of the two they provided. Some of those bolts were in some pretty tight confines.

Brkt fit perfect and after 9000 miles of towing is still just like the day I installed it. I also used the custom brkt under the seat to mount my air brake piston to activate the the brakes in the jeep while towing..thanks

Great customer service. I was sent an email with tracking number, and also a video attached on how to install the item. I will be ordering more from etrailer.



by:

The brackets fit perfectly and were pretty easy to install. The nuts with the wires were tricky to get in place but overall I am happy with the product and the way they work.



by:

No problems with installation. One thing that could be changed is that the outer bolts should be the same as the iner [ with a threaded plate}

  • Recommended Base Plate for a 2007 Jeep Wrangler
    The Roadmaster StowMaster Tow Bar item # RM-501 uses a crossbar style base plate. The correct one for your 2007 Jeep Wrangler is the Roadmaster item # 1429-1 if you have the standard factory bumper or item # 1430-1 if you have the Mopar or Warn bumper. I have linked an installation video below for the first one to help you get it set up. I have also attached both sets of instructions.

  • Base Plates, Tow Bar, and Accessories Needed to Flat Tow a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X
    The Roadmaster MX base plates, # 1429-3, that you have referenced will fit the 2008 Jeep Wrangler X. However, the Hidden Hitch tow bar that you have is not compatible with the MX style base plates. You have 2 options. First, you could use the MX base plates and also get a compatible tow bar, the most popular of which is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. Or, you can get different base plates, # 1429-1, and use an adapter, # RM-025, with quick disconnects, # RM-201. The Hidden Hitch tow bar that you...

    For your 2008 Jeep Wrangler you would just need a base plate kit and would not need to replace the front bumper to connect to a tow bar. For a Roadmaster base plate kit you would want the # 1429-1 which has been confirmed as a fit. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle.

    Flat towing your Jeep Wrangler behind your Class A motor home will require the tow bar, a lighting/wiring kit, safety chains, base plates and a supplemental braking system. The linked article will give you background on each of these. The Quick Disconnect system for Roadmaster tow bars consists of both vehicle-side and tow-bar-side parts.

  • Recommendation For Flat Towing 2009 Jeep Wrangler Behind RV
    Yes, either braking system will work. Both the Blue Ox Patriot, Item # BLU37TR, and the Roadmaster InvisiBrake System, Item # RM-8700, are good options. Both will need power connections so you can connect the Patriot with a 12V Outlet Kit like Item # RM-9332 and the InvisiBrake will connect directly to the battery. Of the two, I recommend the Roadmaster InvisiBrake System, Item # RM-8700, because it is a one-time install and then you are good to go. Because you will need to disconnect...

As long as your Jeep falls into that category, the base plates are a fit. The RM-585 is a version of the tow bar you have referenced, but this tow bar is designed for Blue Ox base plates.

For that you would want the part # 3136-1 which is a confirmed fit. Looks like you have coiled safety cable already too.

    There is not an adapter available that will allow MX style brackets to be used with the RoadMaster Stow Master tow bar.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind a Motor Home with Stowmaster Tow Bar
    In order to flat tow the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will need base plates that attach to the vehicle frame. Because the bumper structure is attached to the frame and not part of the frame, you do not want to attach tow bar parts to it to flat tow the vehicle because there is a possible point of failure between the bumper and frame. For some base plates, you have options, see link to right. I like the XL style base plates, # 1429-1, because they have fewer restrictions that the MX...

    Unfortunately, flat towing a vehicle can be expensive because there a number of parts involved and many of them are pretty costly.

Using the InvisiBrake will give you great, reliable braking and once it's installed you never have to worry about it. With your 2009 Jeep Wrangler you'll also need...
