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

This is my 4th Blue Ox Tow bar. The last one went with the a class bus we traded on a 5th wheel, (what a mistake to get a 5th wheel, a real pain to deal with). Picking up a new Jayco Precept A Class tomorrow. I checked the blue wire thing with my truck to my toad and all is still well with the wiring and lights. The tow bar speaks for itself. We have traveled over 250,000 miles in the US and Canada tugging a toad with now trouble thanks to Blue Ox and now especially thanks to etrailer. All is good and just in time to travel again next week. Thank you George for a job well done an a great company! Your prices on my 3 items saved me over $ 450.00 compared to buying at the theses 3 items at the dealership. The dealer said the car base plate tags simply were not available everywhere. HA! They didn't research etrailer. 370089

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

I have now installed the following on my 2017 Wrangler: Brake light relay kit . Hopkins Towed vehicle Tail Light wiring kit. Blue Ox base plate. Blue Ox Patriot Portable RF Braking System. All of this has taken about 3 days of work spread out over a week or so. Overall it went well. Not too many surprises. Crawling around under a car at 71 is a bit of a strain but I'll get over it. I must say that Donna P. has been a wonderful source of great information and has stayed right on top of the process. eTrailer has been a great source for this project. I would recommend you all with no hesitation. 396393

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

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

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar?


  • 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....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Chevy Equinox Behind an RV
  • You are correct about active air shutters; they are motorized. Since your 2017 Chevy Equinox does not have them or adaptive cruise control you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1689. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar is rated for up to 6,500 pounds and it comes with safety cables. For lighting I recommend the diode kit # RM-15267. It also comes with a coiled umbilical and...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Factory Tow Package
  • The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56208 mentioned in your question is compatible with your 2017 Jeep Cherokee that has the factory tow package installed. This is a custom, plug-in harness that will connect behind your vehicle's tail lights and provide a 4-way flat plug at the front of the Jeep to connect with your motor home. If your RV has a 7-way connector, then I recommend adding the Hopkins Adapter for 7-Way to 4-Wire Flat # HM47065. To complete your...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Rock Edition Behind a Motor Home
  • There are 2 base plate kits that will fit the Hard Rack models of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Roadmaster base plates # 1444-1 and Blue Ox base plates # BX1134. In both cases the front cross member will be visible. These are the only options so there isn't anything that is any more hidden than them. the Blue Ox base plates cost a little less so I would go with them. For a compatible tow bar the most popular option for Wrangler owners is the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Class A Holiday Rambler Arista 300
  • First, you will want to consult the Jeep owners manual to determine the proper procedure for towing. If you find that you can flat tow the Jeep, there are 5 items you will need to flat tow your 2012 Jeep Wrangler. First, you will need base plates to provide a secure attachment point for a tow bar. For your 2012 Wrangler, if you do not have an aftermarket bumper, you can use Blue Ox base plates, # BX1126. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Next, you will...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Blue Ox does make some good products and the Patriot # BRK2016 is one of the best braking systems you could use. It is relatively easy to install, much more so than some other braking systems out there. And it can be used with active power assist braking systems. I would go with it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on supplemental braking systems for you to view. For the BX2258 base plates, make...

  • Difference Between the Blue Ox Alpha and Avail Tow Bars
  • Both tow bars you referenced will work with the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1721 that you just bought. The biggest difference will be that the Avail part # BX7420 is designed to allow for better maneuverability in tight turns. This is accomplished by having longer arms than the Alpha # BX7365. The Avail also has a 10k capacity whereas the Alpha only has a 6,500 lb capacity. If you think you will need to make some tighter turns I would highly recommend the Avail.

  • Flat Towing a 2016 Chevy Sonic Behind a Motorhome
  • To flat tow your 2016 Chevrolet Sonic you're going to need several items. For starters, I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 which connects to your RV by your trailer hitch receiver. The arms swivel, making it easier to connect to your Sonic and the Alpha comes with safety cables. Next you'll need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1703 which is compatible with your Sonic. It's fairly easy to install, with no welding and is barely noticeable when the tabs are removed. For...

  • Recommendations on Flat Towing a 2017 Honda Fit with a Manual Transmission.
  • According to the Owner's Manual, the 2017 Honda Fit is towable behind a motorhome if it has the manual transmission. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) model cannot be flat towed. The base plate that I recommend for the Honda Fit is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2261. The Blue Ox base plate is a custom fit piece that is hidden beneath the vehicle's body. Blue Ox also provides all the hardware needed. Blue Ox does state that the bumper fascia will have to be removed and...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk I recommend the Blue OX Base Plate Kit # BX1136. All base plates for your Cherokee will require about the same amount of trimming. I've attached a video of the install on a 2015 Cherokee you may find helpful. You should know that your vehicle may have Mortorq fasteners that require a special bit from Snap-On to remove. I recommend going with the SMI Air Force One # SM99243 for your supplemental braking system. The wireless systems will work but...

  • 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....

These base plates mount to a flat, metal section of your vehicle's bumper. Most bumpers will need to be modified for use with these brackets. It is possible that you could use an adapter with the bumper. If the bumper has D-ring mounts in the front that can be removed and the hole diameter is 7/8 of an inch...

  • 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...

  • I wish we had a cut and dry yes or no answer to your question, but when it comes to deciding if any given vehicle can safely be flat towed with all wheels down that determination goes to the vehicle's manufacturer. I reviewed the online version of the owner's manual for the 2016 Honda Fit EX-L and in the section titled Emergency Towing there is a statement on page 428 that says "...towing behind a motorhome or other motor vehicle can damage the transmission."

The technology package and lane control features should not be a factor and the active braking feature is only something to look at when we cover supplemental braking. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500 pounds and comes with safety cables. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit...
