Demco Tow Bar Dimensions

Note: If you add a hitch extender to your setup, you may need safety cable extensions (sold separately) to reach your tow vehicle's hitch.

Works with Blue Ox Base Plates

Compatible with Blue Ox Baseplates with these Adapters

If you already have a Blue Ox base plate or are planning on getting one, this kit includes the needed brackets to make this tow bar compatible. Simply unbolt the existing brackets and bolt on the new ones in their place. All the hardware is included.

Easy Hookup: Self-Supporting Arms

The Excali-Bar III has a lot of smart features that give you the flexibility to hook up your toad (towed vehicle) to your RV, without the need for your vehicle to be perfectly level or in the exact right spot.

Demco Tow Bar Fast Easy Hookup

First of all, the arms are self-supporting, meaning that they hold themselves up without your help and won't fall to the ground when you let them go. They also move independently of each other, so you can focus on getting just one arm connected at a time. You'll never be stuck wrestling with a heavy tow bar.

Just slide the tow bar into your hitch and pin it in place. The telescoping arms will extend, pivot, and tilt to the needed length and angle to reach the tabs on your base plate. You can get hooked up and on with your adventure.

Once the tow bar's connected, slowly pull forward and the self-aligning arms will fully extend and lock into the towing position. Double check that the arms are properly latched and you'll be ready to hit the road!

Important: The arms need to be set up so that the storage rod is on the outside of the arm. Otherwise, the tow bar could be damaged when taking turns.

Extra-Long Arms Get You Around Tight Turns

The Excali-Bar's arms are longer than average, giving you an above-average turning radius. You're going to be able to get around obstacles and make sharp turns with no worry of clipping the corner of your RV. Maneuver through gas stations and the campsite no problem.

Built-In Rise/Drop

It's important that your tow bar is as level as possible while you're flat towing, with no more than a 3" difference between where the tow bar sits in the hitch receiver and where the arms meet the base plate. It's fairly common for the hitch on an RV to sit too high in comparison to the base plate on the toad, making it necessary to buy a high-low adapter.

With Demco tow bars, the rise/drop is built right in, so it's less likely that you'll need an extra adapter. The head joint is also able to tilt up and down so you can make the tow bar level for your particular setup.

Non-Binding for Easy Disconnect

Uneven ground and sharp angles can put the arms of the tow bar in a bind and make them stiff and immoveable. Once you get to your destination, the last thing you need is to spend several minutes wrestling, yanking, and kicking at them to get your car disconnected.

Demco Non Binding Arms

Instead, get out of a bind in one easy step. Simply give the trigger on the arm of the Excali-Bar a squeeze to disengage the internal latch. This releases the pent-up pressure so you can unhook and get on with your adventure.

Each trigger release latch is positioned on the side of the tow bar arm. This allows for a comfortable yet firm grip, unlike latches that are positioned on the tops of tow bar arms, which can be difficult to grab. This out-of-the-way placement also creates a clean look for the tow bar.

Organized Setup: Integrated Safety Cables

Demco Tow Bar Safety Cables

Two straight, vinyl-coated safety cables are integrated right into this tow bar, keeping them from dragging on the ground and getting damaged. They won't get lost or tangled either; your whole setup will be streamlined and organized.

These cables, required by law, will keep your toad behind your RV if there's ever an accidental disconnect while you're towing. The steel S-hooks on each end of the cables connect to the toad's base plate and the RV's trailer hitch, with spring-loaded latches to ensure that they stay connected.

Demco Tow Bar Storage Rod

The tow bar also offers a convenient storage rod for securing your coiled electrical cord (sold separately). The rod holds your power cord neatly out of the way and up off the ground.

Ridiculously Easy Storage

Demco Tow Bar Storage Positions

The Demco Excali-Bar III is incredibly easy to store on the back of your RV. Most RV-mounted tow bars require you to lift the heavy arms all the way up; they have to be fully vertical before you can secure them in the stowed position. With Demco tow bars, all you have to do is raise the arms an inch or two - which you probably would do anyway while unhooking - and swing them to either side. When you lower them down again, the locking pin will automatically slide into the built-in tab. They can store to the left, right, or with one arm each way, however is convenient for you.

For added protection, slip on the Demco tow bar cover (DM9523042 - sold separately) when you're not using the tow bar.

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 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.

The smart design of this tow bar keeps it easy to use. Heavy-duty but not heavy: arms support their weight during hook-up and swing to one side for storage. Integrated safety cables keep setup organized. Convenient built-in rise/drop.


I have ordered other products before from etrailer, and this order was no different. Very easy to do, Demco Tow Bar came as advertised in a timely manner and setup was quick as directions were precise. This is the second Demco Tow Bar I have had and like the first I am very happy with how it functions, it's simple operation and ability to safely tow my GMC Sierra 1500 Denali.


I think this brand of tow bar is the best out there, because the wire is supported and the safety cables are attached and it all stores on the motor home. I had a lighter weight Demco bar for eight years and really liked it. I bought this heavy tow bar because we will be towing a Ford F250 and needed the heavy rated tow bar. After owning a Demco for eight years, I would recommend this bar for a heavy super duty truck.


Due to Covid, we haven't used it yet so just assuming it will be excellent





everything i expected









This tow bar is easy to use and maintain. I do wish they shipped a cover for the arms when they are not in use.


Put a ram 3500 mega cab diesel with 800 lbs of motorcycles in bed and towed behind tag axle diesel pusher RV flawless, easy to use.


Great price, great product. Wish Demco would put a locking hitch pin with their product. Pay the company that much money and you get a standard pin. I think Demco should send a locking hitch pin standard with all of their tow bars and a normal hitch pin with the cotter pin clip optional. Or, just include both, but definitely a locking pin standard with all tow bars.


Towed our Jeep Wrangler JK great!


Good bar towing my modified Jeep Wrangler that weighs 5490 so I went with 10k bar. Towed about 9k miles so far all good


Been using this product now for well over a year. Works flawlessly.


Easy to line up and lee. The attachment hold when connecting to the tow vehicle are great feature. Removes concern related to stable towing our Wrangler with our Super C.


Excellent product, fast shipping!

  • Recommended Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plate Kit on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler
    I'm not quite sure where you found a difference of $500 dollars between the (discontinued) Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar BX7445 and the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar # BX7420 but my guess would be that since the Aventa LX has been discontinued that it is at a much lower price-point. It was a good tow bar but definitely not priced that much lower than the Avail. Personally out of the two I recommend going with the Avail because it is still being made and you can have confidence that you are more likely...

  • What Flat-Towing Parts do You Recommend to Flat-Tow My 2010 Ford F-250 4x4?
    I went ahead and checked your owner's manual for your Ford 2010 F-250 super duty, and there are some restraints. The only way Ford recommends flat-towing your truck is if you have the 4x4 model that has an automatic or manual transmission with the manual-shift transfer case. However, Ford says not to flat-tow if you have the 4x4 model that has a manual or automatic transmission with the electronic-shift transfer case. If you have this second model, Ford says that the vehicle should not...
