Swivel Function

Tow bars are notoriously difficult to connect and disconnect, especially on uneven surfaces. Rigid tow bars have arms that are essentially locked in place so you have to drive your towed vehicle into the exact position necessary for hookup. But with the Alpha, you can connect from the approximate towing position, even on unlevel terrain. The unique swivel design allows the tow bar arms to turn and pivot just enough to compensate for a slight height difference so you no longer have to worry about being on completely level ground.

Self-Aligning Design

The convenient, self-centering arms help to make hookup a snap as well. Once you have connected the tow bar to the base plates on your towed vehicle, simply drive your RV forward until the tow bar arms fully extend and lock in place.

Non-Binding Tow Bar

Non-Binding Release Latch

Blue Ox has defeated the age-old problem of binding by creating a tow bar that is just as easy to release as it is to hook up. Simply press down the locking handles on the tow bar arms until the internal latch disengages. By releasing some of the static pressure from your tow bar you can flex its arms just enough to make disconnecting from the base plates a snap, even when it's out of level with your RV.

Triple-Lug Connection

Triple-Lug Bracket

Blue Ox base plates on your vehicle are equipped with two tabs each that connect to the brackets on the ends of the tow bar arms. These brackets are referred to as "lugs." The unique triple-lug design of the Alpha 2 tow bar creates a tighter, more stable connection by surrounding both base plate tabs. The result is a sturdy, reinforced connection that is stronger and more rigid for a safer, more dependable towing experience.

Hooking up the Alpha to your base plates is as simple as it is secure. Just insert the triple-lug end of the tow bar arm into the base plate so that the center lug is positioned between the two tabs of the base plate. Then insert the 1/2" keeper pin through the lugs and tabs and secure it at the end with the included quick pin.

Simple Storage

The Alpha 2 can be easily stored on your RV when it is not in use. After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. You can then fold them up toward the RV and insert the integrated hold-up bolt into place on the hitch connector. Then pivot the arms down so that they are held firmly in place alongside the RV, parallel to its bumper.

Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.

There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.

FlatTowing Components

The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motorhome's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

I have now installed the following on my 2017 Wrangler: Brake light relay kit . Hopkins Towed vehicle Tail Light wiring kit. Blue Ox base plate. Blue Ox Patriot Portable RF Braking System. All of this has taken about 3 days of work spread out over a week or so. Overall it went well. Not too many surprises. Crawling around under a car at 71 is a bit of a strain but I'll get over it. I must say that Donna P. has been a wonderful source of great information and has stayed right on top of the process. etrailer has been a great source for this project. I would recommend you all with no hesitation. 396393

I purchased a Alpha 2 tow bar and it arrived within the time frame etrailer gave me. Upon opening the package ( thru no fault of etrailer) the hitch pins and clips had not been inserted. I called and Lori in customer service took it upon herself to get me a re-order and ship them to me same day ! You don't get better service than that ! I just got the tow bar yesterday so have not used it yet. Appears of better quality than my old falcon all terrain. 760527

You might be able to use the # BX88230 as this is a universal base plate kit that can attach to metal bumpers.

You'd need a Blue Ox tow bar to go with this to provide the attachment from the vehicle to the tow vehicle.

  • 7 inch Rise/Drop High Low Adapter for Flat Towing a Jeep Wrangler
    You are correct. When you are flat towing a vehicle you want the tow bar to sit as level as possible between the towed vehicle and the tow vehicle. To accomplish this you will need to get the appropriate rise/drop high-low adapter. It sounds like you either need a 7 inch rise adapter or possibly a 25 inch rise adapter (we don't offer one that big). For an adapter that would do 7 inches of rise or drop you would want the Blue Ox Adapter part # BX88241.

  • Is Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar Non-Binding?
    It's difficult to quantify the degree of truth in terms of the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380 being a non-binding tow bar. What I can tell you is that we have not heard about issues with binding, and it is important that you are both in a straight line and on a level surface to make it easier to disconnect; facing downhill and trying to disconnect the Alpha or the (now discontinued) Aladdin tow bar will make the process a difficult one, as you seem to know already.

  • How Much Tongue Weight Does a Tow Bar Apply to Motorhome Hitch
    Correct, when flat towing a vehicle 4-wheels-down the only actual weight on the hitch will be that of a portion of the tow bar's weight. Some of the tow bar weight will be on the vehicle's front end so only a portion will be on the hitch side. Most of the better motor-home-mounted tow bars like the Blue Ox Alpha # BX7380 weigh about 40-lbs so say half of this will be seen by the hitch as tongue weight.
