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.


FlatTowing Components

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.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar Road Test

Now we will take out our RV with our towed vehicle behind it. You'll notice how the tow bar keeps our vehicle tracking true and straight behind our RV. Also, as we go around corners and make maneuvers, you will notice how the towed vehicle handles and isn't being jerked around behind the RV. When we go over bumps, you'll see how well that the tow bar handles with the uneven terrain and the changes in the terrain, keeping the vehicle in line behind the RV.

Very happy with etrailer for the purchase of a Blue Ox tow bar with needed hook ups for lights, etc and an Air Force One Brake system for my 2018 F150. Crystal did a great job of comparing options and matching pricing from across the web. She offered free installation. The Installer, Shane was awesome, I wanted all hookups hidden by the front plate on the F150 when not towing, Shane came through and then some. Finally, the manager Robert was excellent on follow-up as we had some air leak once we got home. etrailer stood behind everything and follow was exceptional. Very pleased! 553939

I have towed a 2 door Jeep Wrangler with this tow package in excess of 4500 miles behind a 30 ft. Class A motor home (Ford V10 chaises ). I'm in Glacier National Park from the Gulf coast of Texas as I write this review. Towing the jeep with the Blue Ox has actually made for a more stable ride. I highly recommend this tow package due to quality craftsmanship, ease of installation and ease of connect and disconnect from the jeep. I also bought the jeep tow bar and wiring kit. Installation was easy, just look it up on u-tube! The cover keeps things neat and clean. W. 264013

I was about to rebuild my old Blue Ox Aventa tow bar when I saw a review of the Avail tow bar in Motorhome magazine. As advertised, the release handles work no matter whether you were traveling in a straight line (required for my old tow bar) or are partway through a turn. Still no help when the car is facing uphill - it is impossible to pull the pins attaching the arms to the car - fixing that would be quite an accomplishment! For now, I will continue to avoid the situation or have my wife pull the car forward while I hold the release handles down. 286044


Comments

It is still the best tow bar I have ever used. Just yesterday I was unhooking my Honda CRV that was still in the middle of a turn. The release required a little effort and when it released the car jumped about an inch showing the tremendous load on the bar and latch. My old Aventa would have required several blows from a heavy object to get it to release.

Comments

Its been working well for me. The paint is starting to erode and rust. Seems like this problem always exists with tow bars. I would suggest you change to SS or plate them instead of painting them. You could offer an upgraded version for extra cost for this feature. Also want to compliment the added length of the arms. I had to use your extension before to keep the vehicles corners from rubbing in tight turns. The longer arms addressed that issue nicely. The upgraded release levers seem to work well on this unit as well. I had your rotating ball unit before this new one. It also worked well for a while and then suddenly the ball mechanism became very loose. Also the shorter arms were a problem. I still have that unit and wonder if it can be reworked? I would then have a backup if needed.

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar?


  • Flat Towing Equipment Recommendations for 2016 Ford F150
  • The first thing you'll need to do is confirm that your truck is capable of being flat towed. According to my research, 4WD models can be towed without modification as long as the procedures outlined in the owner's manual are closely followed. 2WD models need a transmission lube pump installed before they can be safely towed. To flat tow the vehicle, you'll need a tow bar, base plates, a wiring solution so the lights on the RV and towed vehicle act in tandem, safety cables, a supplemental...

  • 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....

  • To keep a maintenance charge on the battery I recommend using a harness such as # BX88206 with the tow bar wiring you will be using so that you can run a wire from the connector at the front of the truck to the vehicle battery. There are a couple of ways to do this. First, you can tap into the running light circuit in the tow bar wiring but to provide power to the battery the RV running lights would have to be on all the time. Or if the connector at the back of the RV has a working 12...

  • Yes, disconnecting the battery with a Quick-Disconnect, like the Deka part # DW05312, will be the easy way to go when it comes to disconnecting the battery on your 2017 Ford Edge so it can be flat towed. Disconnecting the battery prevents it from draining while you are flat towing. Since the owner's manual states that the battery must be disconnected I strongly recommend following those instructions and not trying to get by it somehow. That is one of the down sides to flat towing with...
