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 Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plates

If you already have a Roadmaster Crossbar-Style base plate or are planning on getting one, this kit includes the needed brackets to make this tow bar compatible. This crossbar will replace the one on your base plate so the tow bar can connect. All the hardware is included.

Easy Hookup: Self-Supporting Arms

The etrailer XHD 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.

etrailer XHD Tow Bar 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!

Extra-Long Arms Get You Around Tight Turns

The XHD'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 toad, making it necessary to buy a high-low adapter.

etrailer XHD Tow Bar Built-In Rise and Drop Keeps Tow Bar Level

With etrailer 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.

etrailer XHD Tow Bar Non-Binding Triggers

Instead, get out of a bind in one easy step. Simply give the trigger on the arm of the XHD 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

etrailer XHD Tow Bar Integrated 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.

The etrailer safety cables are rated at 14,000 lbs, regardless of the rating of the tow bar. While it's not necessary to have such a high rating, it's nice to know that in the event of an emergency disconnect, these heavy-duty cables will be more than capable of catching your vehicle. If all else fails, these safety cables won't.

etrailer XHD Tow Bar Storage Rod for Coiled Electrical Cord

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

etrailer XHD RV-Mount Tow Bar Storage

The etrailer XHD 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 etrailer tow bars, all you have to do is raise them an inch or two - which you probably would do anyway while unhooking - and swing the arms 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.

At etrailer, we're committed to the products we sell, and to helping our neighbors journey. We don't just sell it; we've installed it, we've wired it, and we've towed with it, so you're getting your answers straight from the experts. Our etrailer technicians perform flat tow installations on a daily basis, so they know all about your tow bar firsthand. For the life of your tow bar, our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via phone, email, and chat to help you with any questions or concerns.

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.

If you would like to add any comments to your review, good or bad, we are all ears!



Very well built.



The tow bar looks good. However, it was missing the large bolts to hold the blue ox adapters onto the tow bar. The hardware kit was not complete. Also, the instructions on attaching the blue ox adapters were NOT CLEAR at all. I think the bar will be very good once I get the missing parts shipped to me.


Very rugged tow bar. You will need this cover: Roadmaster Tow Bar Cover
Item # RM-055-3 because the arms don't lock in the short position so they just slide out to the extended lock position when stowed without a cover.


Finally had a chance to use the new tow bar, we traveled 1,800 miles, this was to replace a older Avail Blue Ox). i like the design that it holds the safety cable up off the ground and no coils to mess with, for a lower cost than the rest i seen with at least a 10K rating, this tow bar is easy to work with and due to design and does NOT flop around when connecting it.. there are pros and cons with everything, over all this design is very nice. the bottom bar is lower than the top by design, once i installed this and got it perfect level one arm goes down a inch the other goes up a inch, the big con for me is here is no cover for the shafts as the Avail has, i sure i can find and buy some some where to help protect them, other than that this tow bar is a winner and can pull 10.5K, also the XHD is the same as the name brand just for less cost.. would recommend this to any one who needs and wants a HD tow bar..


Very much like the Etrailer XHD tow bar. Works great.


We use this tow bar on 6 vehicles that gets used multiple time each month I pull a 3/4 ton Ford , Ez to hook up and well built, we are very happy with this tow bar, I would buy again without thinking twice about it.


Just received havent used yet but looks like it will handle what i need
Used etrailer on previous truck and great support and vidieos fairly easy to install and if you have questions you can call and they will walk you through.


I use the XHD non-binding tow bar to pull a Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my Class-A motorhome. The XDH tow bar works great. It is easy to hook-up and stores nicely to the side when not in use. I especially like the Non-binding release, which makes it easier to unhook.


First time buying a tow bar. Great experience with Jesse at errailer. etrailer videos are excellent.


XHD is a great product! Pulling a 2019 Ram 1500 easily, I connect up in driveway, although not perfectly flat. Capacity is great, we can carry bikes and other supplies in truck. It takes longer to get truck into neutral than to connect up to rv. etrailer staff super helpful to get what you need, just ask.


1st tow bar I had to send back, due to chip powder coating. 2nd two bar came a week later Great job etrailer. It was easy to do a return and get a replacement. etrailers whole team was great getting me what I wanted. I replaced a 10-year-old tow bar and wanted to replace it with their new XHD you can tell its LBS is higher than my old tow bar.


Easy to set up. Love the extra features. Very well thought out design, highly recommend it


It’s tough, reliable, quick to connect- only 3 issues:
1. Because it’s tough, VERY heavy, awkward to install and uninstall, much less store…if there was a way to more easily collapse, break it down into more easily compact size…
2. Safety cables sometimes bind and easily corrode, and the spring loaded snaps at the ends are unusually and annoyingly hard to open… And on more than a few occasions snapped causing much pain to one’s fingers and thumbs
3. There is a frequent clicking sound as though the hitch has suddenly shifted slightly (1/2-1”?) somehow when rounding a corner or merely driving along. This despite all connections double checked for proper hookups.


The tow bar works well. I am not a fan of the way it stows. The Blue Ox tow bars swing to one side or even stand up so they can be covered, but this one has one arm sticking out each direction and is harder to cover.


I have not installed the Tow Bar yet, but what I see it's an excellent product. My greatest pleasure was dealing with Madison H, what a jewel. Very helpful and knowledgeable


The eTrailer HXD tow bar is an excellent choice! I generally spend less than 5 mins hooking up or unhooking from my 2020 Ram Rebel with baseplates installed. Highly recommend this setup for flat towing.


It is so convenient to have the safety cables and wiring plug attached to the towbar. I have had no problems getting hooked up or unhooked. Very pleased with this towbar.


Everything has its place. folds nicely and can be covered when not in use. Easy to hook up.


Tow bar is operating flawless. I love the ease to store, no more need for drop down hitch, and disconnecting from Toad is very easy. Have not had a bind. Can not beat the quality for the price.

    The etrailer tow bar part # E64ZR does work directly with the Roadmaster Crossbar Base Plate kit # RM-524448-4 without needing to also use the crossbar you mentioned. So you'd just need the tow bar and the base plate kit without the crossbar and you'd be fine.
