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.

1) The unit arrived very quickly. 2) Instructions were not clear as to whether or not the spreader bar was required with the Roadmaster base plate I had previously purchased for the 2003 Explorer. There is no obvious to way for the pieces to attach without extensive drilling. This base plate is the style that allows us to remove the front pieces. But it dosen't seem to be compatible with the Roadmaster tow bar I bought. Clearly the tow bar attaches easily to the base plate but I was concerned about what additional stresses would be on the car frame ( if any ) without the spreader. 3) The clearance at the attachment points seemed a bit large and I expect chatter, but no real problem. My guess is that these points have extra clearance to allow for some twisting as the tow vehicle tilts one way while the towed vehicle tilts another. 4) All in all I expect the unit to work well but this review ( as most are ) was requested immediately. So at this time I have no over the road experiences to evaluate.


Comments
During the year since I purchased this tow bar we have towed the explorer from the Canadian border in the Rockies to the Mexican border in the southwest. Hundreds of those miles are over unpacked roads in the mountains. We have had ZERO problems. And would certainly recommend the product.

I've used this tow bar for my little Kia Rio5 Toad behind my 32' Itasca Class A motorhome. Reliable, easy to attach and remove, good construction. Had good experience recent trip from Seattle to Death Valley (7 percent grade in places!) and southern Arizona, over 4,000 miles round trip. It passed the acid test: driving I-5 south in Oregon, traffic suddenly came to a screeching halt ahead of us. We stopped with inches to spare from the car ahead of us. The TOAD stayed right behind, no jack knifing, etc. Good product.


Comments
Great. Use it for towing all the time. Have a tent trailer and a small flat bed for dump runs and what not. Tip: make sure you pay attention to how the light wiring is supposed to run past the bar. Get some good large zip ties.

I purchased both the parts of the tow system. I just purchase a Jeep Grand Cherokee (99) to pull behind our motorhome for week end trips. We just returned from the first week-end with access to a vehicle to move around the area, and short trips to town. It adds a wonderful dimension to the experience. This system allowed us to pull this vehicle with our motorhome, and I can say it pulled as if there was nothing behind me. It was quick to hook up, and easy to un-hook. My labor time to install was about 2 1/2 Hours, and went smoothly. This is a wonderful product, and works as desired. I have attached photos of the After installation, and the camp-site we stayed at, (proving we made it)

Hi.......I read your review of the Roadmaster Tracker tow bar and am considering purchasing this model. I have to admit, a major consideration is the affordability of this model. The RV dealers in my area are quoting me prices in the neighborhood of $4000 to outfit my RV to tow my Honda CRV. Base plate, tow bar, wiring, brake assist,,,,the works. Way over my budget, so am wondering if there is a more economical way to tow my vehicle.I am thinking of asking how much to only install a base plate on the Honda.... then going with this tow bar unit. I can get magnetic lights to use when I tow again, trying to keep the price down. Is this tow bar easy to connect and disconnect? Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thanks....Wayne

Less than 5 miles on the tow-bar at this point, having completed only the "proof of concept" journey around the neighborhood. Simple bar, simple instructions. Keep the toad/dinghy brackets loose until the cross-bar is mounted and snugged - THEN tighten the toad mount brackets.

I purchased the tow bar and base plate so we could flat tow our 2017 Ford focus. I was able to install the base plate myself in about 3 days only because I took my time. Hooking up to our Motorhome is easy and we don't have any problems with the car going down the road. When we get another vehicle I will get another Roadmaster Base Plate.

I already have a "StowMaster" tow bar for my 1999 Chevy Tracker, but found that it interfered with my 4X4's ability to approach and climb steep slopes; It also weighed over 60 pounds,reducing my carrying capacity and producing a harsh ride. The "Tracker" tow bar weighs less than half as much and increases my approach angle while improving the ride. etrailer described the "Tracker"bar perfectly, suggested the appropriate quick disconnect kit,offered it for less than anyone else and shipped it quickly! Whatever my future automotive needs I WILL go to them first (and this comes from a retired professional career mechanic/shop foreman).

Okay! Its been a year now totalin around 7000 miles, covering 6 western states, on everything from freeways to dirt desert tracks and everything in between. I wouldnt change a single word of my original review. To add: there are no signs of wear or need for repair. Even the paint is still perfect. The most satisfying purchase of the year.Add another star!

I purchased both the "Tracker" tow bar and the base plate kit, and had the base plate installed by my local mechanic. I was able to install the tow bar attachment plate to the base myself, using a 1/2" drive torque wrench. We've made several trips, some as long as 1200 miles, through mountains and flatlands, on interstates as well as US highways, State roads, and county roads, and have never had a problem with performance. We are very satisfied.

Haven't actually used it yet, but will for around 2 weeks in about 10 days. Could be a little awkward getting it lined up on the ball maybe. We'll have to wait & see. Seems strong enough though. It's heavy. Although it doesn't fold & stow on the car, it's easy enough to remove & it will fold flat for easier storing.
