Sturdy, Built-to-Last Tow Bar

The etrailer SD tow bar is tough and built to last. Sturdy, modular steel construction offers the strength you need to pull up to 6,000 lbs. 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 SD makes connecting your towed vehicle to your motorhome a breeze. Unlike most tow bar arms that move together along a single plane, the SD 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 Direct-Connect base plates, sturdy adapter brackets are included for compatibility with the ends of each tow bar arm. These clevis-style ends attach to the base plates using the included hardware and provide a tight, stable connection for a safer and more dependable towing experience. Roadmaster base plate pins (RM-910029 - sold separately) are required to complete the connection to the base plate.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

The built-in trigger releases make it easy to disconnect the SD. 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.

etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plates - 2" RV Mount - 6K - e74ZR

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (45 Customer Reviews)

Flat tow your vehicle with the hitch-mounted etrailer SD tow bar. Independent, self-supporting arms won't fall to the ground when unfolded, and smooth operation allows for easy hookup and disconnect, even on unlevel ground. Built-in rise/drop.

Overall the tow bar does what it is supposed to do. It’s sturdy and flexible and has not let us down in its primary duties. However the locking pins and bright yellow plates are extremely prone to become badly bent during normal use. This is a clever system to restrain the tow bar arms when the unit is parked out of the way when not being used to tow your toad. Even taking great effort not to misalign the pins and slots things still get bent. It’s just not the best system IMHO.

Easy to use and I like the way it stows. Also the safety cable hangers on the arms are a very nice touch, no dragging safety cables

Review from a similar SD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


I purchased parts to turn my 2007 Minni Cooper into a toad. After selecting the items I was able to have an initial conversation to verify I had selected the correct parts. I had a few questions along the way and there were a couple pins missing from one item. All these conversations were super helpful and I achieved a perfect install. Thanks to the etrailer team. Best customer service I’ve ever experienced. Especially in the last few years.

Review from a similar SD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


Upon close inspection, the tow bar appears to be extremely well made. The powder coating is evenly applied without any thick, thin, or bare spots and the baseplate adapter hardware seems to be of comparable high quality. As soon as I work out a couple of fascia clearance issues with my Blue Ox baseplate installation, I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Review from a similar SD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


Recently I purchased a new car to tow behind my motorhome which required new tow equipment. I was scheduled to leave on vacation in two weeks and was pressed for time to be able to tow the new car. Etrailer delivered all items in record time to allow me to set up the car to be ready to tow. I have used etrailer many times over the years and have never been disappointed.

  • Tow Bar that Can be Used with Roadmaster D-Ring Adapter RM-035
    The Roadmaster D-Ring Adapter part # RM-035 that you referenced is the correct adapter to use with your bumper but the etrailer tow bar part # e74zr cannot be used with it as its inner arms (where the adapter attaches to it), are different from a Roadmaster tow bar like what this is designed for.

    With a wiring kit that has straight cables like your Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - 7-Wire to 6-Wire Straight Cord # RM-152-98146-7, all you need to do is wrap the wiring cables right around the arm of your etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e74ZR. This is the common practice for straight cable wiring kits; this will safely allow your cables to be up off the ground so they don't drag or get damaged.
