Sturdy, Built-to-Last Tow Bar

The heavy-duty etrailer XHD tow bar is tough and built to last. Sturdy, modular steel construction offers increased weight capacity and strength to pull up to 10,500 lbs. The XHD is perfect for towing a full-size truck or SUV. Two hitch pin holes allow you to position the tow bar closer to or further from your RV, without sacrificing load capacity.


The black powder coat finish protects against the elements and flying road debris. And stainless steel inner arms provide additional durability and allow for smooth operation. Quality-engineered pivot points and hardware ensure both strength and maneuverability.


Fast, Easy Hookup

With independent, easy-to-maneuver arms, the XHD makes connecting your towed vehicle to your motorhome a breeze. Unlike most tow bar arms that move together along a single plane, the XHD tow bar arms operate completely separately from one another. A vertical bolt through the head of the tow bar keeps the arms positioned one on top of the other, allowing for a more fluid hookup. The arms pivot horizontally on this bolt, allowing for an unlimited spread so that you can hook up to base plates with almost any spacing. A built-in joint at the base of each arm allows for vertical movement so that you don't have to tilt the entire head when positioning the arms.


The arms telescope for easy extension to your base plate connection points, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV. The self-supporting design of the arms also allows you to telescope one arm out and attach it to the base plate without having to worry about supporting the opposite arm at the same time. The arms lock into place when you're ready to tow, and the extra length of the arms 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.


Base Plate Connection

In order to be compatible with Roadmaster crossbar-style base plates, a sturdy adapter bracket is included for compatibility with the ends of each tow bar arm. This bracket attaches to the base plates using the included hardware and provides a tight, stable connection for a safer and more dependable towing experience.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

The built-in trigger releases make it easy to disconnect the XHD. Tension can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed vehicle are not perfectly aligned. Engaging the trigger on each arm releases pressure and allows the arms to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates, even if you are at a hard angle or out of level.


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 of the latches also creates a clean look for the tow bar.


Straight, Vinyl-Coated Safety Cables Included

Two straight, vinyl-coated safety cables provide added protection should the tow bar ever disconnect during towing. The cables are held off the ground by the included mounting clips. These clips keep the cables from dragging on the ground, preventing damage and tangling. Steel S-hooks with spring-loaded latches connect each cable to your towed vehicle's base plates and to your motorhome's trailer hitch.


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.


Versatile, Secure Storage

Independent arm movement also allows for storage versatility. Easily store the tow bar out of the way, alongside your RV. The arms can be folded up to the right or to the left, or you can fold one arm to each side so that they are parallel to your motorhome's bumper. Just pivot each arm into position and a peg at the base of the arm will snap into a built-in tab, latching the arm in place so that you don't have to worry about it coming unfolded during travel.


For added protection, slip on the etrailer tow bar cover (e99008 - sold separately) while the tow bar is folded up either to the left or the right against your RV.


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.


Towing Basics

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.

Video Transcript for Review of etrailer XHD Tow Bar - Hitch Mount Style - e64ZR

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at, the C trailer XHD Two Inch RV Mount Non-binding Tow Bar for the Roadmaster crossbar style base plates. And this has a 10,500, pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this tow bar will let you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motor home. The shank portion right here, it'll slide into your two-inch trailer hitch receiver on your RV. So there's no ball mount necessary.

If you notice on the shank right here, there are two hitch pin holes that are about two inches apart. This will allow you to position the tow bar either closer to or further from your RV, depending on your application, without sacrificing any load capacity. Right here, you can see the pin and clippers is included for attaching it to your hitch.Also, there's no need for a high-low adapter on most setups. This adjustable head right here, will tilt up or down three inches to keep your tow bar parallel with the road during towing, and also on the shank here, you can see we have it in the drop position. Basically it has a built in one and a half inch drop, or if you turn it around and install it, it'll have a one and a half inch rise for additional height adjustability.

The arms on here are telescoping self-supporting arms, which make for a nice, fast, easy hookup. And the main feature is the self-supporting feature of the arms. And in other words, these arms won't fall to the ground when they're unfolded.Some of your tow bar systems that are out there, will require to try and balance both arms at the same time while you're trying to hook them up. These will self-support. So I'm just going to demonstrate that for you.

So this one I don't have hooked up. So just to show you, you can see if you lift up on the arm and then when you let it go, it'll stay in that position. If you push it down a little bit, it'll stay in that position. If you lift it up again. So wherever you let it go, it'll stay in that position, which will help you to attach this to your tow vehicle.Also, these arms do have full articulation, so they will allow for unlimited spread to fit your application.

The arms can actually disarm here if you go all the way out this way, this one could rotate all the way up this way so about 180 degrees of articulation on both the arms to give you what spread you might want. They are also a self aligning design. So you just hook up and then when you drive your RV forward, the stainless steel arms will extend. Let me just show you that. So basically when you pull it after you hook this up to your RV, and then you start pulling forward stainless if you can see here, these inner arms extend into an ice rigid tow ready position. And then once you get far enough, you can hear that they automatically lock into place and you're ready to tow.They are a nice non-binding design. So it allows you to easily release your vehicle. Even if you're on unlevel ground, have these trigger releases on each arm right here, one over here, one over here. It's locked in place, you just push down on that trigger and now let go of the arm, even if it's under pressure to release the arm. So again, you go and you're locked out and then when you go to release, as soon as you push down on that trigger, it'll release the arm. Also on each arm. If you can see down at the bottom here and over here, they have these integrated cable mounting clips that'll help keep your included safety cables off the ground to prevent any dragging. And if you notice the safety cables have a vinyl coating all along the cable to protect it. And at each end, they'll have these nice steel S-hooks with the spring loaded latches for nicely added security.If you'll notice on this one arm, you have this rod here, this is a built-in storage rod, and that's designed to keep your electrical cord in place and off the ground. Now the electrical cord is not included. You would have to supply that, but basically what happens is once you plug in your electrical cord and its coiled cord, instead of having that just dragged down low, you'd take this clip out, put the extra coils up on this rod, put the clip in and it'll hold it in place and keep it off the ground. Also, this tow bar has a nice, simple, secure storage alongside your motor home. Basically these arms can be folded together and then you can store them to the left, swing it all the way to the right, the lock in place on these holes on these plates, right here are. As I mentioned before, the other ways you can actually take this arm all the way, this way and it'll lock in place, this one all the way out here.It does have a nice e-coat finish on. It provides corrosion resistance. This part is made in the USA. Now the compatibility for this part number, this is designed to work with the Roadmaster Crossbar Style Vehicle Specific base plates. Now the base plates are sold separately. The base plates they work with are the XL the EZ, the EZ2, and the EZ4 series model base plates. As you can see this part does include the crossbar adapter and the hardware for installation. Application on this again, we mentioned is two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receiver. Weight capacity is 10,500 pounds. One note I do want to mention is we also sell a SD tow bar, which is a lower weight capacity. And when you quick look at both of them, they look the same, but I do want to mention the difference on this XHD tow bar, the reason you get the higher capacity is the stainless steel arms, the inner arms, they are in larger diameter compared to the SD model. So those larger diameter arms gives you that extra weight capacity.Total weight on the whole tow bar is about 46 pounds. And then a few dimensions I want to mention is the arm length, in other words, if we put both these arms together, so it's just a straight line here and then we measured from the center of this hitch pin hole at the end of the shank right here. And then with these arms retracted, if we measured to the center of the base plate pinhole retracted measurement would be 39 and a quarter inches. If we measure from this hitch pin hole and then extended those arms out and measured the pin here would be 51 and three quarter inches.Also, the distance from the hitch pin hole back here at the end of the shank to the beginning of this drop or rise, whatever position you have it, right about here, is going to be five and a half inches. And then from that same hitch pin hole at the end of the shank to the bolt vertical bolt here in the head, it's about 12 and a half inches. It does come with a nice operator's manual. That'll describe how this all goes together and how it operates, but that should do it for the review on the etrailer XHD Two Inch RV Mount Non-binding Tow Bar for the Roadmaster Crossbar Style base plates. And this has a 10,500 pound gross towing weight capacity.

Review from a similar XHD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


Recently purchased the e67ZR tow bars for Blue Ox base plate. The tow bars are are made by Demco but labeled etrailer which didn't bother me at all as I have purchased etrailer branded items before and have always been happy with them . The bars came two weeks early but had a safety cable that was damaged in transit that etrailer replaced immediately. The customer service by Dawn was exceptional and the product exactly what I wanted at a savings of over $xx.xx from the identical Demco labeled bars. The product is great, the service exceptional but watch the prices as they change daily which is the only reason I did not rate it 5 stars.
