Self-Aligning Design

The convenient self-centering arms on the Acclaim help to make hookup a snap. Standard tow bars have rigid arms that are essentially locked in place so you have to drive your towed vehicle into the exact position necessary for hookup. But with the Acclaim, you can connect from the approximate towing position quickly and easily. Once you have connected the tow bar to both your vehicle's base plates and your RV's coupler, simply drive your RV forward until the tow bar arms fully extend and lock in place. Before hitting the road, be sure to check that the arms are properly latched to avoid damage to the tow bar.


Non-Binding Release Latch

Non-Binding Tow Bar

Blue Ox has defeated the age-old problem of binding by creating a tow bar that is just as easy to release as it is to hook up. Simply press down the locking handles on the tow bar arms until the internal latch disengages. By releasing some of the static pressure from your tow bar you can flex its arms just enough to make disconnecting from the base plates a snap, even when it's out of level with your RV.


Triple-Lug Bracket

Triple-Lug Connection

Blue Ox base plates on your vehicle are equipped with two tabs each that connect to the brackets on the ends of the tow bar arms. These brackets are referred to as "lugs." The unique triple-lug design of the Acclaim tow bar creates a tighter, more stable connection by surrounding both base plate tabs. The result is a sturdy, reinforced connection that is stronger and more rigid for a safer, more dependable towing experience.


Hooking up the Acclaim to your base plates is as simple as it is secure. Just insert the triple-lug end of the tow bar arm into the base plate so that the center lug is positioned between the two tabs of the base plate. Then insert the 1/2" keeper pin through the lugs and tabs and secure it at the end with the included quick pin.


Simple Storage

The Acclaim can be easily stored on your towed vehicle when it is not in use. Simply disconnect the arm on the driver's side from the base plate bracket and swing it over to the other arm so that they are side by side. Secure the arms to one another with the integrated holding pin. Then line up the folded tow bar with the front of your vehicle so that the coupler is positioned next to the driver's-side base plate. Using the 1/2" keeper pin, connect the holding bracket beneath the coupler to the base plate bracket and secure it with the quick pin.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bars BX4330 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number BX4330. This is the Blue Ox Acclaim A-Frame Tow Bar system. The coupler-style tow bar is going to let you tow your vehicle behind your motor home. It's going to feature the integrated coupler that's going to attach to the trailer hitch ball on your RV. It is designed for a 2" hitch ball. It's also going to have the integrated or attached coupler pin.

Just dor additional security, it goes right in to that hole there. Uses a really nice trigger light system to connect and disconnect from your hitch ball. Now, this tow bar system is going to feature a self-aligning design. All you have to do is hook up to the base plates on the towed vehicle and drive your RV forward. The telescope and arms are going to extend into a rigid, tow-ready position which they already are all the way extended. Then they're automatically going to lock in place.

Now, to disengage them from this position, all you got to do is to push down the handle. It's going to allow the arms to telescope in. Then, as if it was connected to an RV, you drive forward. It's going to telescope the arms out. Until it puts them in the lock position. Now, on the end of each arm is going to be a triple-lug connection.

These are just going to be sturdy brackets on the end of each tow bar arm that's going to provide a reinforced connection to the base plates. Each arm is going to attach and detach from the base plates with 2 easy-to-access pins. One on each arms, really simple system to use. The triple-lug connection is built very well and it's going to provide a nice sturdy connection point. Now, this does offer a simple, secure storage alongside the towed vehicle. Towards the end of the video, I'll show you how to get it to a stored position.

The entire unit's made from a durable, steel construction. It has a really nice finish on it so it's going to last a long time. As well as end up really well against rust and corrosion. Now, you got some rubber boots right here, that are design to protect the telescoping arms from dirt and grind. You are going to get a set of safety cables. These safety cables are made out of air-craft grayed tight material. They got the rubber keeper here over the hook. Then the plastic lining goes around the cables to protect your tow bar system from any scuss or damage that exposed cable could cost. The unit's going to offer a capacity of 5,000 lbs. Again, it is design for a 2" hitch ball. When it comes to compatibility, this is designed to fit Blue Ox removable tab based plates that are spaced at least 23" apart. It can be adapted for use with Roadmaster base plates with the Roadmaster base plate to the Blue Ox and Denco tow bars adapter. That parts going to be sold separately with part number RM-033. You can find that right here at etrailer.com. Now, another great feature about this system is it only weighs about 35 lbs. it's easy for one person to move around and to connect and disconnect. Now, to get it to a stored position, one of the first things that we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and remove the clip from the integrated holding pin. Then we're going to go ahead just loosen up the arms. That's going to give us some flex when it comes to lining up the triple-lug on this side with the pin, the integrated holding pin on this side. This is going to be our passenger's side arm, this is going to be our driver's side arm. To get it to a stored position, we need to disengage the driver's side leg which we already did. Then we need to rotate it over on to the passenger side leg. When we do this, you're going to see that the coupler is going to rotate 90 degrees which is perfectly normal. We're going to go ahead and remove the pin and clip from the driver's side triple-lug connection. We're going to go ahead and rotate this over. The triple-lug connections is going to come down on top of that holding pin. Just like that, then we're going to use the included clip to secure that leg on top of the passenger's side leg. Now, once we have it in this position. Our arm is not going to go anywhere. The triple-lug that's connected to the passenger's side of our vehicle is going to act as a pivot point. All that you have to do is swing the coupler head towards the driver's side attachment of the base plate. That's where this bracket's going to come and use. There's a bracket on the bottom of the coupler. We're going to attach the coupler head bracket to the base plate with a half inch pin and quick pin. Basically, we're going to use the pin that was used to secure the triple-lug connection with the base plate. Now, we're just going to use that up here at the bracket on the bottom of our coupler. That's going to attach to the same point on the base plate of the triple-lug connection attached to. Really simple, basically this is just going to rotate towards the front of our vehicle. Again, using that triple-lug passenger side connection as a pivot point. It's going to allow us to easily and safely move it to a stored position. That's going to do it for today's review of part number Bx4330. This is the Blue Ox Acclaim A-Frame Tow Bar. .

This tow bar works great after the year I've had it and still is as easy to put on and off my vehicle as when I first got it. Now that I'm practiced with it, I can have it on the car and hooked up and ready to go within 10 minutes. The parts hold up and the only ones I had to order were those I misplaced in my previous RV. 337179

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar?


  • Equipment Needed For Flat Towing Vehicle Behind Motor Home
  • To flat tow a vehicle, you'll need a hitch on the motor home, a towbar, a base plate kit installed on the tow vehicle, a tow bar wiring kit so that the taillights on the vehicle work along with those on the motor home, safety cables and a supplemental braking system. You'll also need to determine if your vehicle is capable of being flat towed, or if it must be modified in some way in order to flat tow it safely. I'll link you to some of our help articles about flat towing. If you...

  • What Height/Angle Should a Tow Bar be At When Flat Towing
  • Basically you want the tow bar to set as level as possible when flat towing. You have 3 inches up and down that is considered safe. Check out the picture I attached that shows what I mean. I also attached a help article that covers how to pick out the correct high-low adapter to allow the tow bar to sit level.

  • Connecting Stowmaster Tow Bar # RM-501 to Steel Bumper on Jeep Wrangler
  • Tow bars from RoadMaster and Blue Ox, such as the RoadMaster StowMaster # RM-501, are designed to mate directly to base plates from the same manufacturer. Base plates usually mount to the vehicle frame. There are adapters available to use a tow bar from one company with base plates from another, but this arrangement costs more and increases the complexity and the amount of play in the set-up. Also, not every possible parts combination is covered by the available adapters. Jeep Wranglers...

The tow bar includes the necessary safety cables. You'll need to use a tow bar that's compatible with the Blue Ox brackets, so the Stowmaster # RM-501 you referenced wouldn't be a good choice. I'd recommend going with the Blue Ox Acclaim,...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade Behind an RV
  • I'm glad you asked because there are several subtle things to consider and other not so subtle things when flat towing a vehicle. The first place to start is the vehicle owner's manual. I checked the owner's manual online for your 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade. If you have a 4-wheel drive model it can be flat towed with 4 wheels down behind an RV. If it is a 2-wheel drive model it cannot be flat towed. If you have a model that can be flat towed then the first item needed is a set of...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2002 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motor Home
  • To safely flat tow a vehicle it needs to be equipped with base plates that attach to the frame. All of the base plates that we carry will only fit on the factory U-channel, single tube, or double tube bumpers, see link. You would first need to install the factory bumper and then get the correct base plates for your bumper type. After you have the base plates installed you can safely attach the tow bar. The tow bar you selected, # BX4330, comes with safety cables, but the tow bar only...

  • Can a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Fab Four Lifestyle Bumper be Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • None of the base plates available for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited will fit if the vehicle has an aftermarket bumper.

With these base plates installed you can use any of the following tow bars: Adventurer, # BX7322, rated for 5,000 pounds, does not include safety cables Acclaim, # BX4330, rated for 5,000 pounds, includes...

  • Recommendation for Tow Bar, Base Plate Kit and Wiring to Flat Tow a 2010 Mazda5 Manual Transmission

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4

  • Recommended Equipment for Flat Towing 2004 Ford F250 King Ranch 4x4
  • As long as your truck isn't the Harley Davidson or STX edition, the Blue Ox # BX2163 base plate would be a good choice. If your truck weighs under 5000 lbs, you can use the Blue Ox Acclaim towbar, part # BX4330. This towbar is compatible with the 2 inch trailer ball you were speaking of. If it weighs more, you'd need to use a receiver mount towbar like the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365. You will also need to wire the truck so that the taillights of the truck operate with those of the...

  • Recommendations for Flat Towing 2014 Ford Edge Behind Motorhome
  • If you have a 2014 Ford Edge with a 4 cylinder engine, it will need to be towed on a tow dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes - 4,250 lbs # RM-2050-1.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2002 Ford Escape
  • The first thing you will need to flat tow your 2002 Ford Escape would be a base plate kit. For that I would recommend the Roadmaster base plate kit part # 481-3. This will provide the connection point from your vehicle to the tow bar. The Roadmaster Falcon # RM-520 you referenced would work as a compatible tow bar, but for a nicer tow bar with more features that would make your flat towing experience much easier I would recommend the Blue Ox Acclaim Tow Bar # BX4330. This tow bar has...
