Fast, Easy Hookup

This Roadmaster tow bar has a large hookup radius to ensure simple, secure hookup. What this means is that, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV, you will still be able to make the necessary connections. To achieve this, the BlackHawk 2 has stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently. In addition, these arms are able to pivot in and out, changing the spread. So, if your car is angled a bit behind your RV, you'll still be able to hook up by bringing the arms closer together and staggering the length so that 1 arm is longer than the other, allowing it to reach the more distant base plate.

The fact that the arms are extra-long also allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motorhome and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motorhome without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.


When using EZ, EZ2, EZ4, XL, or Classic base plates, quick-disconnects make it a snap to attach the tow bar to your vehicle. Other methods require you to maneuver each tow bar arm individually and perfectly line up tabs on the arms with tabs on your base plates. Roadmaster's unique design lets you connect and disconnect the tow bar quickly and easily, all by yourself.

The quick-disconnect brackets come in separate pieces. The pieces that are positioned on the ends of each tow bar arm interlock with matching brackets that attach to your Roadmaster base plates. Sandwiched between the tow bar arms is a sturdy crossbar that essentially turns the arms into a single structure. This crossbar allows you to lower the tow bar as a single piece onto the quick-disconnect brackets on your towed car so that you don't have to connect each arm separately. When lowering the tow bar onto the brackets, make sure that the tab on each bracket lines up with the hole in the matching bracket. Then just insert the linch pins through the holes in the tabs on top to secure the brackets together. To remove the tow bar, simply remove the pins and lift the tow bar off of the brackets. These convenient brackets also make it simple to mount any number of Roadmaster accessories, from basic safety cables to the Guardian rock shield.


If you have MS, MX, or EZ5 base plates, the arms will connect directly to the base plates. Just remove the quick-disconnect brackets from the ends of the arms and you will be left with lugs that fit into the base plate brackets. Once the lugs are set inside of the brackets, simply insert the included pins to secure them in place.

Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Freedom Latch

The Freedom Latch makes disconnecting this tow bar a breeze. This latch makes it easy to release the tension that can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed car are not perfectly lined up. Just flip the latch to release the pressure, and the arms will be able to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates. This allows you to disconnect even when you're at a hard angle or out of level.

Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This BlackHawk 2 All-Terrain tow bar has been subjected to rigorous physical and computerized testing to ensure that it meets Roadmaster's exceptionally high standards. Throughout the design process, Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) is done. Each of these tests display a 3-dimensional image of the tow bar while it is put under thousands of pounds of pressure. Areas of stress in the tow bar can then be located and studied so that those areas can be strengthened. This process is repeated until any weak spots, particularly those found in load-bearing components, are completely removed. The result is a durable, strong, and safe product.

Simple, Secure Storage

Storage LatchStored on RV

The BlackHawk 2 All Terrain can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when 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. Fold the tow bar up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically lock it in place.

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 like this tow bar having replaced it with a lighter version of a Roadmaster falcon all terrain that came with the coach when I bought it. But neither one really releases as well as I wish that they did. There is a learning curve to it I guess but I've been using this for a year now and still have trouble with binding sometimes I have to use a hammer and punch to get it released from my vehicle. Still I do like it it tows my Jeep Grand Cherokee without a problem. Recently a friend of mine had his pickup truck come off of this hitch and slam into the back of his foretravel nimbus causing extensive damage, so a good towbar is essential. I like Roadmaster products. I wouldn't say they're the best just that I like them.

Roadmaster BlackHawk looks like it is very well made. This is a replacement foe a Roadmaster Sterling that I had for over 10 years. I was going to rebuild it, however after reading different comments that the life of the tow bar is 8 to 10 years, I decided to replace the tow bar instead of rebuilding it. The sterling tow bar was rated at 6k while this new tow bar is rated at 10k. I hope this new tow bar will last another 10 years. Etrailer service was great and fast. Receive the new tow bar in just 2 days. Have not used it yet, but real soon I hope. I will be flat towing a Jeep Wranger or a Ford F-150. I am sure this tow bar can handle these toads. Thanks again etrailer for providing great service at the best cost. I did fine the tow bar at a lower price and they provided their 110% match.

- RM-422

I am very pleased with my purchase from etrailer! The product and service are excellent. The package arrived a day before scheduled and I was promptly notified of its arrival. I can't say enough about etrailer at a time when other companies are making delivery promises, that they can't deliver, etrailer comes through!

- RM-422

Excellent product, heavy duty and well built. So well built it has a cross-bar system in it that wasn't required for my recommended base plate. Seems to be a lot of extra money for something that can not be used with the products recommended.

Still works great. Excellent, sturdy product.

Towing a Wrangler 4 door behind my motorhome, have gone 20K miles now and no issues, i am not using the cross bar as my vehicle mount does not require that. Due to the road dust and everything it gets quite dirty of course. It has been working well along, easy enough to connect. If you have to disconnect on a hill it gets a bit tricky to unlatch and such, but just takes practice.

- RM-422

Easy to install and easy to use. Being newbies to the motor coach world, this tow bar is made for ease of hookup. It took less than five minutes to unhook and hook up. Love it! We did not use the base plate that came with it but chose to add the direct connect base plate with removable arms (RM-521424-5) This combination made it excellent to use!

WE have only used the tow bar a couple times but have to say it is REALLY easy to hookup! Takes less than five minutes to get our Jeeep attached. Love it!

We bought a Blackhawk Roadmaster 2 tow bar approximately a year ago. We have nothing but good luck with it. Hooks up easily to our Jeep. I could even do if need be. So much easier than the long trailer to tow. Don't even feel it behind the motor home. Definitely recommend it.

- RM-422

Very nice tow bar. I pull a full size pick up and don’t worry about it. It does make hooking up and disconnecting the tow rig much easier than my old Falcon tow bar. Highly recommend.

- RM-422

I used this tow bar to tow my 2013 Honda CR-V behind my motor home. This is a 10,000 lb bar that I used only because the 6000 lb bar was not available at the time of my need. The bar is very easy to install and hook up. The car does not have to be level or straight with the tow vehicle. Once hooked up a small left right movement of the two vehicles as you start moving locks the tow bar in place. Very easy to use.

This hitch is so easy to hook and unhook when I fell ill my wife absolutely had no problem getting the car hooked back up and getting us back on the road.

If you are looking for a great tow bar, the BlackHawk 2 for you. I have an older Roadmaster (10) years old and it was still working great but we got a larger tow close to 6k so the 10k looked good. EZ to hook and EZ to unhook plus I like the Non-Binding.

After a year on the road, this has worked well. The Non-Binding has never failed to get me unhooked. Before I unhook I wipe the rods down with cleaner and lube, hope to have this one 10 years.

Purchased my road master black hawk tow bar a year ago I pull a f150 crew cab it’s it and absolutely love it , it is easy to hook up and unhook good strong tow bar

- RM-422

Well made, beefy product. Nice finishes on exterior. It arrived quickly via UPS with slight packaging damage but the contents were undamaged. A protruding bolt worked its way through the box. Hook up to the towed vehicle MX style removable base plates was straightforward once the vehicle position was close. This is the first towbar I have used, but I can't imagine one being easier to use. My first outing was approx. 175 miles each way. The towed vehicle tracked nicely and smoothly. Unhooking the vehicle at the destination was equally easy even on an unlevel alignment with the motorhome. My only complaint is that the safety cables would not fit through the cable channels to keep the cables out of harms way. The cable are Roadmaster products so I feel there should have been some acknowledgment regarding this.

This was my first order with them and being completely satisfied with them will be placing additional orders.

    There are several possible causes for the severe tire wear you are seeing on your Ford Focus.

That extra force can lead to not only tire wear but also potentially damage the tow bar and base plates.

The base plate I recommend for your Ram 1500 is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1986. The Blue Ox base plate features removable draw armsto help maintain the look of your vehicle...

  • Troubleshooting BlackHawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar Arm Sticking
    It sounds like you need to give your BlackHawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-422 a good cleaning. I reached out to my contact at Roadmaster who said that you want to extend that inner arm out all the way and then apply a liberal amount of dish soap that fights grease (he specifically mentioned Dawn works really great). After that you want to be sure that the silicone spray you are using is a dry silicone spray (which I'm pretty sure Blaster isn't one) to lubricate the arm. If the problem...

    To flat tow a vehicle you will need at least 5 items: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting solution, and supplemental braking.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Ram 2500
    The first thing you need to flat tow your 2018 Ram 2500 4x4 is the correct base plate kit which will give you the connection point for a tow bar to attach.

  • Using a Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 Tow Bar with a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit
    It sounds like you're using the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 # RM-422 with a Blue Ox base plate kit. In which case the tow bar will use adapters, either # RM-031 or # BX88262, to connect. The picture I've attached shows the Blue Ox connector that mates with a Blue Ox base plate kit. If this is what you have you can still use your existing adapters with the Blackhawk 2 as long as they aren't damaged as well.

  • Everything Needed to Flat Tow A 2014 GMC Acadia Behind RV
    I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2014 GMC Acadia. It states if the vehicle is either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, it can be flat towed with all 4 wheels on the ground. I just recommend verifying this information in your copy of the owner's manual, as it's possible that you have a slightly different model Acadia. The owner's manual will also detail the correct procedures and steps to take before heading out on your trip. In order to flat tow your 2014 GMC...

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500
    There isn't a Sportsman model, so I assume you have a 2015 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman 4x4, I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-52289-5 if that is the case.

  • Base Plates, Tow Bar, Safety Cables, and Wiring to Flat Tow a 2006 Hummer H2
    In order to tow your 2006 Hummer H2 using a tow bar, you will first need to install base plates. I recommend base plate kit # 2506-3.
