Swivel Function

Tow bars are notoriously difficult to connect and disconnect, especially on uneven surfaces. Rigid tow bars have 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 Alpha, you can connect from the approximate towing position, even on unlevel terrain. The unique swivel design allows the tow bar arms to turn and pivot just enough to compensate for a slight height difference so you no longer have to worry about being on completely level ground.


Self-Aligning Design

The convenient, self-centering arms help to make hookup a snap as well. Once you have connected the tow bar to the base plates on your towed vehicle, simply drive your RV forward until the tow bar arms fully extend and lock in place.


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 Alpha 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 Alpha 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 Alpha can be easily stored on your RV when it is not in use. After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. You can then fold them up toward the RV and insert the integrated hold-up bolt into place on the hitch connector. Then pivot the arms down so that they are held firmly in place alongside the RV, parallel to its bumper.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bars BX7365 Review

Today, we'll be reviewing part number BX7365. This is the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar. This is a motor home mount rated at 6,500 pounds. This tow bar is going to let you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motor home. This portion here slides into your two inch by two inch receiver style hitch on your RV. No ball mount is necessary, it's going to come with a 5/8 inch pin and clip.

This does have a swivel function so it actually rocks back and forth. Our little pivot mouth right here so it's going to make it very easy to connect even on unlevel terrain. This also has a self aligning design which means all you got to do is hook it up to the base plates on your towed vehicle and drive the RV forward. As you drive forward it's actually going to extend one of this arms or extend both arms and it's going to lock the arm in place in a towed position. The bring the arm back in push on that lever and you push it in far enough and it's going to secure back into a stored position. It's got the triple-lug connection here.

You can see, sturdy brackets on the end of each tow bar arm, provide reinforced connection to the base plates. Each arm is going to attach and detach from the base plate with two easy to access pins, very simple to use, they also have indicators on the outside that way you can tell that the outer most portion of the bracket is facing up and that's also going to let you understand what side of the vehicle each arm goes on. Now, other neat things I really like about the Blue OX Alpha is it's ability to store when it's not in a used position or towing application. All you have to do is disconnect it from the base plate, your vehicle and then you bring the arms up and then you bring the arms up into a upright position. This pin right here is going to fit into this slot and then as you rotate the arms over to one side, the pins are going to engage in this portion here. It's going to fold up at a 90 degree angle against the back of your RV and it's going to slant just a little bit to one side or the other for a nice sturdy position.

That's a great feature to have with this tow bar assembly. Has a really nice black powder coat finish on it so it's going to stand up really well against rusting and corrosion as the rubber boost better design to protect the telescoping arms from dirt and grime. It's also going to come with two safety cables that you can attach to the base plate on your vehicle and then loop them up to around the hitch of your RV or your motor home. This is going to offer a capacity of 6,500 pounds. Once again it's designed to fit inside a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. This is compatible for Blue Ox base plates, this can be adapted for use with Roadmaster base plates with the Roadmaster base plate, the Blue Ox and Demco Tow bar adapter.

Sold separately with part number RM-033. The product itself is going to weigh right around 35 pounds so this is a great thing to install by yourself. They'll never hurt seeing extra set of hands to make sure that you're not straining yourself with installing this. The Blue Ox base plate and receiver lock kit is also available and sold separately with part number BX88101. That's going to allow you to get rid of the pins and secure them with pins and locks. Another accessory that's really great to have on hand is the Blue Ox towing accessory kit for motor home mounted tow bars. That's available and sort separately, part number BX88109, you can find all those accessories here on our website at etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at part number BX7365. This is the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar. .

The Tow bar appears well made and of highest quality. We replaced the standard pin with anti-rattle locking pin and my wife made a cover on her sewing machine for the stowed position. I like the fact that it stows well out of the way and our rear RV basement door opens without interference. All the controls and joints move easy enough and all that remains is putting some miles on it. 80812

Still working well, we have knocked some paint off and sprayed a little primer back to keep it from rusting. I have seen no other product that would have been a better choice.Very happy with purchase

I ordered the Blue Ox Alpha tow bar, base plate and curt trailer hitch for my 08 Wrangler on Tuesday and it arrived on Friday. The installation for the base plate and trailer hitch went without a problem. The instructions were well written. Total installation time for both was less than 4 hours. Etrailer readily made good on their low price pledge and reimbursed me the price difference plus 10% when I found the base plate at a lower price than etrailer advertised. On my tow bar the dust boots were not properly attached and Judy at etrailer immediately ordered new zip ties and boots from Blue Ox. I will do business with these folks again. 342833

This is the 3rd time that I have ordered items from etrailer.com. I have to say that I couldn't be more pleased. Ordering on line is extremely easy, I received a verification call later the same day. The units shipped and were delivered within 4 days. I have not had an opportunity to use the products but believe they will fit my needs. When I made my first general inquiry about what Items I might need, John (one of the tech reps.) sent me a list of recommendations along with a link to numerous videos that explain the installation of each of the units. I think their service is one of the best on the market. 323795

We purchased the Blue Ox Tow Bar to use behind our Class C Motorhome. It was easy to attach to the RV as well as the Honda Fit which we are towing. We haven't had a chance to use it since we received it, however, we have had nothing but glowing remarks about the Blue OX products from all our RV camping buds. ETrailer was very prompt in shipping this to us and even reduced the shipping time at no additional cost. We ordered this on Monday afternoon and it arrived by UPS at our residence on Thursday morning. Thanks ETrailer for your followup and your prompt shipping. 98314

Very nice. heavy duty. works great. no problems. Towed a car behind RV all around the country. Makes it easy to connect and disconnect on inclines or odd angles. Installing the associated connections to the front of the Chevy Sonic wasn't bad, took about 3 hours; medium screwdriver/drill/wrench skillz needed. I got the associated fuse kill switch also, makes it all look real nice. The folks at etrailer walked me through all the ordering and needs and were very helpful. Highly recommend them and this product. 317507

When I bought it I thought it was gods gift to tow bars, a year later, after doing a lot of towing with it, my reaction is - meh. Although the adjustable arms to make hooking up easier, it does have a propensity to bind up when trying to get it off - like 3 out of every 4 times. It's not quite a celebration if we can get the two bar off without resorting to hammer. And it still takes two people do hook and unhook. We also have a $125 regular old fixed tow bar, it works just as well. 269742

The Blue Ox BX7365 works perfectly with my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Very easy to install, setup, connect and disconnect. I did need install a 6" drop receiver to level the tow bar between my (Georgetown) RV and the towed vehicle. Just completed a 700 mile round-trip with absolutely no problems. I had no issues with the pins binding, nor getting the telescoping arms to lock in place while using. 347948

The Stay-and-Go brake system is an excellent excellent product.The change I made was the light that mounts on the mirror of the towed vehicle,I ran a wire to the dash of motorhome.Now the light is there in the corner of your eye,and don't need to watch the rear view camera. 349885

Does the job. The only problem I have is sometimes the release latch will not disengage when I disconnect my toad vehicle. I think they have one now that they advertise will never lock-up and might be worth the extra cost. 239745

No troubles so far! I was on the road a total of 93 days in 2016. If your tow vehicle isn't lined up straight the adjustable levers won't disengage. Other than that she is well worth the investment. 332871

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • You can flat tow a vehicle with a Reese Titan Hitch Extender like part # RP45292. For a base plate kit confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee the Blue Ox kit part # BX1128 is a confirmed fit. For a tow bar the Blue Ox Alpha part # BX7365 that you mentioned would be an excellent choice that would work well. The Blue Ox Patriot part # BRK2012 would be a great option as well.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford Edge Titanium with 3.5 Liter Motor Behind a Motor Home
  • According to the 2015 Ford Edge owner's manual you can flat tow the 2015 Edge Titanium if it has the 2.7 liter EcoBoost or 3.5 liter motor and 6-speed automatic transmission. Since you have a 3.5 liter then as long as you have the 6-speed automatic you can flat tow your Edge using Blue Ox base plates # BX2656. And for a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar also comes with safety cables. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A....

  • Installing Winch Mount & Base Plates on 2016 Jeep Wangler Unlimited 75th Anniversary
  • Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1134, which fits various versions of the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited including your 75th edition, can be installed along with a winch mount so long as they do not share the same mounting points on the vehicle. Usually on Jeeps a winch mount will attach to the bumper beam rather than the frame where base plates attach. Flat towing requires a few specific components in addition to the base plates, such as a tow bar like the Alpha # BX7365. The linked articles...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 Behind a Motor Home
  • It all depends on how the truck is equipped. For a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 you can flat tow it only if it has a 2-speed transfer case that has a Neutral and four-wheel drive (4 (down arrow) setting. I would go to the dealer and flip to that page of the manual and perhaps they have the exact same truck that fits that description (if the one you are looking at does not). To flat tow the truck you would need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

  • tow Bar Adapter for Front Bumper with 7/8 Inch Diameter D-Rings
  • There are adapters for 3/4 inch, 7/8 inch, and 1 inch diameter D-Ring hole openings. If your opening is 7/8 of an inch then you would need to use the only one that is for 7/8 inch diameters which is # BX88296 from Blue Ox. The span between the 2 tabs of these adapters is 1 inch which is exactly what you need. This adapter fits on the end of Blue Ox tow bars. I recommend the Alpha # BX7365 which is rated for up to 6,500 pounds and comes with safety cables.

  • Adapter to Level Tow Bar and Other Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Honda CR-V Behind Motor Home
  • Actually, it is 3 inches! But yes, you want the tow bar to be as level as possible. But not to worry because there are adapters called high-low adapters that compensate for the difference in height between the base plates on the vehicle and the motor home's trailer hitch. Blue Ox has a 6 inch drop adapter, # BX88130, and so does Roadmaster, # RM-076. If you determine that a different amount of drop is needed you can look through the link I have provided of all of the high-low adapters...

  • Can a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Be Flat Towed Behind a Motorhome Without Special Equipment
  • I checked on the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and found that as long as the vehicle has selectable 4 wheel drive with a neutral position in the transfer case is towable as is. If the vehicle is rear wheel drive only, and has the 42RLE transmission a transmission lube pump is required. If the vehicle has an auto transmission other than the 42RLE the vehicle is not towable and will need to be trailered. If the vehicle is AWD without a nuetral position in the transfer case it is trailer...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Fiat 500 Lounge Behind a Motor Home
  • The bulb and socket kit # RM-155 is one of the recommended tow bar wiring harnesses for your 2012 Fiat 500. But the only way to know for sure if there is space is to drill a tiny hole in the back of the tail light assembly and then use a depth gauge (straightened coat hanger) , push it in the hole until it stops, mark the depth on the hanger, then measure that distance. You will need at least 2-1/4 inches. In addition to the wiring you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables,...
