Budget-Friendly Tow Bar Keeps It Simple

Blue Ox Adventurer Adjustable Arms

You don't need to spend a fortune to get a tow bar that's going to work for you. The Blue Ox Adventurer is a simple but sturdy option that is more than capable of getting your vehicle from point A to point B.

Because the arms are adjustable - able to match up to base plates tabs from 16" to 34" apart - you can use this tow bar with almost any vehicle within the weight limit. Adjusting them is easy: loosen the hex nuts attaching them to the coupler and push the arms in or out as needed. Then, when you're not using the Adventurer, the arms can be folded together to take up minimum storage space in your car, garage, or RV.

What You Need to Flat Tow

Flat towing can be a much more convenient way to take your car RVing with you than using a trailer or a tow dolly. It'll save you storage space both at home and at the campsite, and it takes less time and hassle to hook up.

To flat tow your vehicle, there are 5 basic components you're going to need: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a flat tow braking system.

For the RV Between the RV and Towed Car For the Towed Car
Hitch with ball mount and ball Tow bar Base plate
Wiring plug Safety cables Braking system
Wiring adapter cord Wiring kit/diodes

The custom-fit base plate installs on the frame of your toad so you can connect the car to your RV with a tow bar. Hook up safety cables between the vehicles to ensure that the toad does not separate from the motorhome if the tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring syncs your vehicle's signal lights with your motorhome's tail lights, as required by law in most states. Finally, the flat tow braking system - also required in most states - activates the brakes in the toad when you hit the brakes in the RV, making for smoother, safer braking, and preventing wear on your motorhome.

We love you guys, you are excellent from start to finish. Answered all questions products are quality. Will definitely use you again. Katie gets top stars.


A very well made product, though way stronger than needed for a Smart Car, though it all went together problem free. It's barely visible on the vehicle which is great, as many are so ugly.


There is not a lot of information on the internet about pulling this kind of VW. I did my homework and this works GREAT when pulling a standard transmission with key left in "ON" position. etrailer has a lot of variety to offer for different needs.
This is the lower priced, plain Jane, no frills, less moving parts for something to go wrong - exactly what I was looking for tow bar. With little work it folds up for storage easily. Installation on our '98 diesel VW was clean and easy without incident (I do all my own modifications when needed. There is no rattling loose fit in tight corners or straight a ways. We don't even know we are pulling anything behind our '68 Dodge Travco B210 (modified with 5.9 Cummins)


Looks great. Will work fine with the base plate.


Works great, kind of challenging to hook up alone. Send the money on the better one that you can back up to an put on at any distance an angle.

The Blue Ox Adventurer tow bar is an economical choice that will get you where you want to go. For a bit more money I recommend taking a look at part # BX4330 which is also a coupler style tow bar that works with Blue Ox base plates. It does have the telescoping, non-binding arms that gives you more maneuverability when attaching in uneven terrains. Keep in mind you cannot back up your RV with the vehicle attached as it will damage your tow bar and possibly the vehicle.


Received my tow bar in excellent condition , amazing packaging . I was a little surprised that it required adjustment prior to use . My jeep already had a Blue Ox base plate installed so it was simple to slide the bar into the adapters . Much less complicated that my old bar . The only disadvantage is there is no way to keep the bar in an upright position . Looking forward to our first trip with it .

Kenneth W.


No problems whatsoever . One thing that I find interesting is the customer service is amazing. Not only with the tow bar but everything I have purchased .


Very friendly spoke with customer service Tuesday about not waiting on one item not in stock receiver others 3 days later


I bought this Blue Ox 5000lbs capacity tow bar because my Subaru Crosstrek only weighs 3100lbs and maybe 3300lbs while fully loaded with gear. I also wanted a simple tow bar that didn't break the bank.
This item arrived in less than two days. The Tow Bar fits perfectly in the back of the Subaru when not in use.


However I am quite pleased with what I got and it was easily installed.

Shane K.


Doing its job, no problems here.


I purchased this tow bar to use with a Blue Ox base plate for my
1999 Mazda Miata. It is a very simple arrangement, with the 2 arms able to fold down to a smaller and more easily stored unit, but does not slide fore and aft as the more expensive tow bars do. As such, it takes a bit more manouvering of the towed vehicle to get it all lined up with the ball hitch. Not a problem for me, as the Miata is very light and easily pushed back and forth. Others with heavier vehicles may have more of an issue.

The quality of the tow bar is excellent. Price and delivery were also excellent. This is a great choice for a budget level tow bar.


Good product. Did everything I needed it to do. Used it to tow my Jeep. Super easy to hook up to blue ox baseplate. I could barely even notice it back there.. pulled it with my F150. No problems turning. Kept the Jeep under control, even on the Oregon Coast. Another quality product from blue ox. etrailer did a great job helping me out. Customer service was excellent and videos were helpful covering the entire scope of setup and installation. Thank.


Very happy with this purchase. I understand this is more of the lower priced Blue Ox tow bars, but it's well built compared to others I've seen in the same price range.


Due to Ms Chelsea, I placed my order after talking to her. She was so helpful and professional. I will use etrailer in the future for all my orders. Ms. Chelsea deserves a big round of applause. She is the Greatest. Now if I can put this thing together. lol


Using this Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar on my Colorado together with a Blue Ox base plate. Both are a perfect fit and do the job very well. Would buy it again, and yes, I'm very happy with the service I got from Highly recommended. Ordered it from Canada and had it shipped to the border without problems. Thank you for saving me a lot of money.


Our Blue Ox tow bar is just what we needed to safely tow our PT Cruiser behind our 37 ft diesel pusher. Easy to use.


My Blue Ox Tow Bar arrived faster than I expected. It fit the existing mounting brackets on my Jeep Wrangler perfectly. If my oil pump drive gear fails again, it will be easy for someone to tow me home. Now my wife won't worry so much when I'm hunting in the Wyoming mountains.


I installed the hitch myself and it has worked out great!


This is a great budget towbar. It was even easier than I expected to hook up to the car and connect to my motorcoach. I am towing a 2015 Honda Fit and I was able to easily pull my car around by hand after hooking it up to this towbar.


Great product and excellent shipping CV time


I have given this product 4 stars because I have not yet used it. However, upon inspection, I found it to be well made and sturdy. I am currently having the tow brackets and cross bar professionally installed.


Nice bar for money! Works as it should.


I installed this on my car myself It wasn’t too bad. Everything is exactly like it said. It works great. If ever change vehicles I will perches from them again.


Good and strong product, I recommend it.
instructions and adjust the ball latch, check it every trip.


Have used this product to tow my Mazda 3 behind my class a motorhome for 1 year now. Great results. Would buy again.


Fit well, excellent & durable construction. has served me well, and will be utilized again this coming summer in our travels towing my little Suzuki behind my motor home.

  • Recommended Hitch Ball Tow Bar For 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Blue Ox Base Plates
    Unfortunately there is no adapter that will work with the shank on your Alpha tow bar that would attach to a ball on the rear of the moving truck. I called my contact at Blue Ox and they told me there is no way to convert the Alpha to be able to tow with a hitch ball. My best recommendation is to use a tow bar that can be used with a ball and your base plates. I recommend the Blue Ox Adventurer, part # BX7322. This is not terribly expensive and will work with the base plates you have....

    We do indeed have the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar available.

    The Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms - A-Frame - Car Mount - 5,000 lbs # BX7322 does not have a specified speed limit.

  • What Base Plate is Used in the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar Video
    The vehicle in the video for the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar # BX7322 is a 2020 Buick Envision using the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1518.

  • Does The Blue Ox Acclaim Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX4330 Have a Speed Limitation?

    Yes, I looked up the weight of your 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 and since the max weight it can be configured as is 4,784 lbs the 5k Blue Ox tow bar part # BX7322 would work. The correct Blue Ox base plate kit to use with this would then be the part # BX1682.

  • Can Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar # BX7322 Be Used With Base Plate Kit # BX1976 on 2009 Jeep Liberty
    The Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, part # BX7322, will work with Blue Ox base plate kits that have a bracket distance between 16-34 inches. The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1976, that you referenced for your 2009 Jeep Liberty has a distance of 22 inches between the brackets, and uses removable tabs, so it should work well for you. You will not need an adapter. I am including a link to a FAQ page on Blue Ox base plates.

  • Recommended Hitch for a Trailer w/ a 70 Inch Wide Frame
    The highest capacity hitch for a frame that is 70" wide is going to be the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs item # 13703. This hitch is the only one we have that will work with your Forest River XLR Boost Toy Hauler. It has a 2" receiver and tops out at 3,500 lbs capacity. You will want to check with Forest River to see what your trailer's capacity is. I do not think your trailer is going to be rated to flat tow a 5,800 lbs vehicle. They might have a better option for you...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Toyota Yaris with Manual Transmission
    A car-mount tow bar like the Blue Ox Adventurer # BX7322 is not vehicle specific but its fit will depend on using compatible base plates or adding adapters if the base plates are from a different manufacturer. Flat towing requires a few components in addition to the tow bar. You'll also need a lighting/wiring solution, safety cables and a supplementary braking system. Each of these items is detailed in the linked article. We offer Blue Ox base plates # BX3783 for your Yaris hatchback....

  • What Is the Gap Between the Two Tabs On the Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit
    The Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit part # BX88230 is designed to be used with Blue Ox Tow Bars like the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar part # BX7322 which has lugs that are about 5/8" thick. Therefore, the distance between the two tabs is 5/8". That said, we do have adapters that will allow you to use other tow bars as well so if you let me know what you have I can see if we have an adapter for this.

    Yes, there is. To add a set of flush mount crossbars to your 2023 Ford Expedition's raised side rails, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar Roof Rack item # JB0190. These crossbars mount directly to the side rails and have a flush design which means the crossbars do not extend over the side of your roof. This aero bar roof rack system has a 176 lbs capacity. The included locks will help to prevent theft and the rubberized vortex strips in the top channels dramatically reduce drag...

  • Will the Blue Ox Acclaim Tow Bar Fit With the 22 inch Tabs on the Base Plate Kit for a 2013 Fiat 500
    The Blue Ox Acclaim, part # BX4330, that you referenced in your question will fit Blue Ox removable-tab base plates that are spaced between 23 inches - 30 inches, so they Acclaim will not work for your application. The Blue Ox Adventurer, part # BX7322, would be the appropriate tow bar that you will need to use instead. It is rated for 5,000 lbs just like the Acclaim, but it is compatible with Blue Ox base plate tabs that are spaced 16 inches - 34 inches. You will need to make sure that...

This universal kit allows you to essentially create your own base plates and they will simply mount to a flat, metal section on your Jeep's bumper.

The universal base plate bracket kit we offer is part # BX88230, and it is designed to attach to a vehicle bumper.
