Superior Design for Sturdy, Lightweight Tow Bar

Egg Shaped Design

The unique, eggshell design of the Sterling All Terrain distributes stress evenly throughout its aluminum body, resulting in a lightweight yet durable tow bar. Critical points are made even stronger to allow for an 8,000-lb capacity. For example, the shank portion that slides into the hitch is constructed of steel to ensure that the tow bar can handle stress at this point. Stainless steel inner arms provide even more durability and strength.

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 Sterling 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 Sterling 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


The Sterling All Terrain can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when not in use.

Storage Process

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.

Built-In Cable Guides

Cable Guide

Because safety cables and wires all too often tangle and drag, and wrapping them around your tow bar before every use is just no fun, the Sterling features built-in routing channels. These convenient cable guides serve a dual purpose: they keep cords and wires safe and secure, and they create an attractive, streamlined appearance for your towing setup.

EZ Hook Cable

Designed specifically for use with Roadmaster quick-disconnects, the included EZ Hook safety cables connect and disconnect quickly and easily. Unlike standard cables, the EZ Hook cables feature a ball constructed of stainless steel on the end of the cable. This ball fits into an anchor plate that is attached to the mounting bracket. The hook on the opposite end is constructed of drop-forged steel for extra strength and peace of mind.

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.

This is my second Roadmaster Tow Bar. I purchased the first one in 2010. It gave us 10 years of great service. However it was ready for a tune up and I just didn’t have the time to do it. This purchase is very similar to the previous one. It has everything needed to get you on the road. It included safety cables with an improved method of connecting it to my toad. It also has a heavy duty electrical cable. I did have one issue. The box was damaged and I was missing one bolt. It wasn’t a big issue, I was able to get another one at the local hardware store. The tow bar is very well constructed and has a great appearance. I’ll be hooking between my Jeep Rubicon Unlimited and my Tiffin Motorhome. Can’t wait to try it out.

Love it. Highly recommend

Am very happy with the tow bar. Easy to install and use. This was a replacement for a 20 year old tow bar that I was no longer able to refurbish. This Roadmaster Sterling tow bar is a quality unit

- RM-576

I love this tow bar....it can usually be disconnected no matter what angle the towed vehicle is at. Very easy to connect up also. If it does bind I can free it up by starting the towed vehicle and cycle it into drive momentarily.

Have used numerous times without a single issue. Hookups are very easy and the disconnects are usually the same. Once in awhile if the toad is not perfectly straight in line with the coach it may bind.

One year ago I purchased the equipment to tow my Jeep Grand Cherokee 4 flat behind my motorhome from etrailer. I received the items within 4 days, and was able to do the install myself thanks to the fantastic instructional videos provided by etrailer. I have towed it from Iowa to Colorado, and several shorter trips. It is easy to hook up/unhook and tows fantastic. I went with the Roadmaster Sterling tow bar as well as the roadmaster crossbar with removable arms. I would HIGHLY recommend this setup! I also put the roadmaster diode wiring set in the Jeep to use the tail lights. Works flawless! I have used etrailer for several items and have always been completely satisfied. Preston was super helpful in helping me choose the best equipment for my application! Can't go wrong with etrailer!

- RM-576

I installed the Roadmaster tow bracket on our 2017 Ford Cmax Energi and am very pleased with the results. The instructions were good, but the video provided by etrailer was outstanding and made the install much easier. Coupled with the excellent Sterling tow bar, it made a challenging install a reasonable proposal. It took me (I am 66 years old) about 5 hours total (not including wiring) to do the physical installation. Way to go etrailer!

I have now towed my car about 8,000 miles and it still works great. Very happy with Roadmaster and etrailer!

Excellent service from etrailer.com. Their web site is all about helping with the purchase and the installation. The follow up after the sale is a nice touch as well. The All Terrain non-binding Freedom Latch is an important improvement in the RoadMaster Sterling model. I had an older model and almost always had to fight with the release when trying to unhook the towed car.

Recently I ordered a Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar (RM-576) and a Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit (RM-521453-4). The included Roadmaster installation instructions were very good and easy to follow. A few minor questions came up during the installation, but eTrailer's excellent installation video by Shane cleared up any confusion. Overall the installation of both the base plates and the tow bar was pretty simple and straight forward. The tow bar is easy to use and works great. I think eTrailer's product and installation videos are a great help in picking the right item and installing it.

The new Sterling All-terrain towbar is much better than the one that it replaced. Hooking up and disconnecting is much easier, especially on uneven ground. Working with the team at e-trailer was a great experience, with prompt responses to my emails. All promised delivery dates were met and I appreciated the free shipping offer that applied to my order. I'm totally sold on e-trailer's personnel, philosophy, and operation.

Still totally satisfied with the product.

The tow bar is excellent quality and simple to install. Connecting and disconnecting are a breeze. I had the old style tracker tow bar, but had to upgrade for a heavier vehicle. It fits well on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

This tow bar replaces a older model Sterling that I could no longer get parts for. Wow, the new bar is much stronger and heavy duty than the old one. This bar will be towing my crv all over the place now that i'm retired. As always working with etrailer was a pleasure. The fast service and shipping make me return when ever I need a product they sell.

The Roadmaster Sterling tow bar works great so far. Easy to attach to my toad and is non-binding. I did not use the crossbar that came with the tow bar due to purchasing the Blue Ox base plate for my vehicle. I did, however, purchase Blue Ox adapter brackets which were needed. Everything was packaged and shipped in good condition, and the equipment came in as expected.

I own an RV and want to pull a Jeep Wrangler on my trips. After a few purchases, I don't look at any other site when I need equipment for my RV or my jeep other than Etrailer. I talk to Cavin and ask for his recommendation on a tow bar, electrical connections, and a base plate. Per his recommendations, I order the parts. I received them in the same week, the following weekend I installed them. The instruction was perfect, everything worked. I was amazed at how easy the installation went. I highly recommend this company, the people, the instruction and the video, made my job very easy. Thank's

I’ve used an early model Sterling Allterrain for four years. It had had a hard life possibly backed up with. Bought it used towed a Chevy Equinox. I upgraded to tow a 2018 Chevy Colorado. Wow no comparison, it’s very smooth, heavier construction, 2000 lb more on the max weight. I plan on using it without the cross bar with the EZ5 tow plate system.

- RM-576

Outstanding tow bar for our new toad. We did a lot of research on various brands and models, and selected the Sterling All Terrain from Roadmaster. etrailer is a fantastic resource on how a DIYer like myself can install these products ourselves and save some money and better understand how these products work. George and Brittany provided very timely updates to the shipping status and made sure the components that we were ordering were compatible with the installation to my new Honda Fit. We will be returning for additional items soon.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2013 GMC Terrain Behind Motorhome
    Yes, our flat towing recommendations are going to be the same for 2013 GMC Terrain as those for the 2012 model. In order to flat tow your Terrain, you will need the 5 basic components.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    We have everything you need to be ready. Starting with the tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, part # RM-576. I like it because of the non-binding feature to make it easier to disconnect. It also includes safety cables, a 6-way wiring connector to go on the front of the Jeep, and the cable to connect the two vehicles. It also pairs well with the EZ5 base plate kit, part # RM-521453-5. The only catch is the Sterling's safety cable hooks will need to be connected...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 Mini Cooper

  • How Does Vehicle Being Flat Towed Steer
    When flat towing a vehicle with a tow bar like the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain # RM-576 that you referenced, you will want to make sure the steering wheel on your vehicle is unlocked. Unlocking the steering wheel/front wheels will allow the towed vehicle to turn and essentially follow the RV or tow vehicle that is pulling it. The wheels will turn according to the tow vehicle and straighten back out when needed. If you can let me know the year, make and model of the vehicle you are...

  • Replacement Yoke Bushing for Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar RM-576
    When brand new the yoke on the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-576 will be quite stiff, but after some miles it will loosen up. This is normal. If your tow bar is for example only a year old, I would not be concerned, but if it is 5 years old with many miles on it you might inspect it to see if you need a new yoke bushing # RM-200029-10.

  • Flat Towing Setup for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler with a Lift
    If the aftermarket bumper on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler has the 1 inch D-Ring bumper mounts, which it looks like it does, then you can use the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts # RM-035-1 which is compatible with the Roadmaster tow bar like the Sterling # RM-576. You can determine if these adapters are compatible by measuring the thickness of the D-Ring mounts. If they are 1 inch thick then these will work great!

  • Can Base Plates Be Installed on 2016 Ford F-150 That Has Grille Guard
    We certainly have base plate kits available for your 2016 Ford F-150 that will hook right up to your existing Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-576, but they will all require that you first remove the Ranch Grill Guard that you have mounted. This will be the case with any base plate kit as they simply require the same mounting space as the guard. For the base plates I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect # RM-524431-5 that features removable drawbars and a streamlined design that...

  • How to Get Need Replacement Arms for Roadmaster Base Plates
    Yes, you can get new replacement arms for your Roadmaster Base Plates from, # RM-ARMS. Follow the link and then select "Installation Details" that is linked, which is actually a form that needs to be filled out to ensure the new replacement arms will fit. The part number that you linked to, # RM-576 is for the Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar. I am guessing you probably have the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit, # RM-521567-4 for your 2013 Honda CR-V. Please verify before ordering.

  • Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar Arm Removal and Lubrication
    I attached a set of pictures that detail how to remove and reinstall the inner arms of your Roadmaster Sterling # RM-576. When I spoke to my contact at Roadmaster about a similar cleaning question he recommended that once you get the arm out you will want to clean it like you never want to clean it again. Next, you will want to reassemble it and lube with silicone.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2011 Chevy HHR
    In order to flat tow your 2011 Chevy HHR there are a number of parts you need, starting with compatible base plates. I recommend the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 3141-1, though please keep in mind there are no base plates compatible with the SS model of your vehicle. For a tow bar I recommend going with the Roadmaster Sterling # RM-576 because of how easy the tow bar is to connect to the base plates due to its long telescoping arms as well as its included EZ Hook safety cables. To keep...
