Video Transcript for Curt Tow Bars C19745 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at a Curt tow bar. This is a coupler style tow bar that let's you tow your vehicle behind your motor home. It's going to feature the integrated coupler that attaches to the hitch ball on the RV. This is designed for two inch hitch balls. It's also going to come with these universal bumper brackets that let you attach the tow bar to almost any vehicle. These bumper brackets attache to a flat, metal section of your vehicle's bumper. If that's not present, then just keep in mind that modification and fabrication maybe required.

Basically what these do is they eliminate the need for vehicle specific base plates. Hardware to get the bumper brackets installed is included. The adjustable arms of the unit fit the span of most applications. That's another great feature of this system. The arms attach and detach from bumper brackets with these easy to access pins. Basically the bumper bracket.

I'm going to rotate this around, make it a little bit easier to see. This bumper bracket right here would be attached to the vehicle. The arm has this swivel connector on there. It lines up with the holes right here on the bumper bracket. Then attaches and detaches with this easy to use clip system right here.

It's very quick, very easy to attach and detach the arms of the tow bar from the bumper brackets installed on the vehicle. Again, the adjustable arm design is a great feature to have. I do want to mention that the adjustable arms can adjust anywhere from 26 inches wide to 41 inches wide. In the instructions it is recommended that the spacing is right around 33 inches. Again, can be set from 26 to 41 inches. It's going to use a trigger style coupler latch that insures simple, secure hook up and disconnect that's very easy to use.

Again, the unit is designed for a two inch hitch ball. It's going to be constructed of a steel construction with a powder coated finish. It's going to do a great job of resisting rusting, corrosion making sure that the unit looks good and lasts for a long time. Safety cables are going to be sold separately as well as a coupler pinning clip or a coupler lock. If you need any of that stuff you can find it all right here at The capacity for this unit is 5,000 pounds. Again, it is designed to fit a two inch hitch ball. Adjustable arms spacing, 26 to 41 inches with a recommended spacing of 33 inches. The coupler lock pin hole, or the pin hole for a coupler pin is going to be quarter inch diameter. The unit itself weighs around 31 pounds. Please note that according to the instructions, do not back up while the vehicle is attached. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt tow bar with a 5,000 pound capacity.

Great tow bar for my 1995 Wrangler, only reason I’m not giving it 5 Stars is bc I couldn’t use the predrilled holes on the bumper....but that’s a minor complaint in my book, I ended up using the 2 inside predrilled holes on my bumper as the outside holes for the brackets.....this made it hard to get the tow bar wide enough to fit, but it did fit. Once I got it together, I tightened everything down. Tows like a champ 528526

Ask the Experts about this Curt Tow Bars
Do you have a question about this Tow Bar?

  • Do Safety Chains Attach to Curt Tow Bar C19745
  • Safety chains don't normally attach to tow bars. They normally attach to the safety chain loops of the tow vehicle and then to the base plate kit or frame of the vehicle that is being flat towed. That way if the tow bar some how gets disconnected the chains are still attached to the vehicle and RV. A lot of people really like the coiled safety chains like part # RM-643 which you would coil around the arms of the tow bar to keep them off the ground.

  • Tow Bar Recommended to Tow a 2016 Ford F-250 Behind Farm Equipment
  • With a truck that heavy you're kind of limited on your options. The easiest to connect each time is the Blue Ox # BX7302P but you need a pintle hitch on the vehicle that's towing the truck. If you prefer not to use the lunette ring it can be changed out for a standard couple # BX88248, receiver adapter # BX88249, or clevis hitch # BX88250. You also need a base plate kit for the F-250, part # BX2618. Once you have the base plates installed and connect the tow bar to the base plates...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1996 Geo Tracker
  • You would need to have an all flat metal bumper on your 1996 Geo Tracker for the Curt tow bar part # C19745 to be able to connect. Since your vehicle does not have that you would need to go a different route. You would need to install a base plate kit. For that you would need the part # 118-15. For a lower priced tow bar we have the Roadmaster part # RM-020 which would be an excellent option. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Chevy S-10 Behind an RV
  • Curt Tow Bar # C19745 isn't vehicle specific so you can use it on your 2000 Chevy S-10. It comes with universal bumper brackets that will need to mount to a flat, metal section of the vehicle bumper which does require modifying/reinforcing the bumper/vehicle. This tow bar is fine for moving vehicles short distances but as a regular use tow bar it is not a good solution. If you will be towing the S-10 long distances behind an RV then I recommend a custom flat towing set up. For that you...

  • Will Blue Ox Adapters # BX8833 Fit Curt Tow Bar # C19745
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure both the Blue Ox adapter # BX8833 and the arms on the Curt tow bar # C19745. I am happy to report that the adapter and tow bar will work together! The tow bar arms where the adapters would attach are 1.97 inches tall and they have a slightly larger than 1/2 inch diameter bolt hole. The adapter opening that fits over the tow bar arms are 2 inches tall and they have a 1/2 inch bolt diameter. They couldn't be more suited for each other. The 26 to 41...

  • Recommendation For Safety Cables To Flat Tow 2005 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Tow Bar, Item # C19745, is a basic but durable tow bar that should serve you well. For safety cables, I recommend the Roadmaster Coiled Safety Cables, Item # RM-643, because they are 68 inches long so plenty of length, are heavy-duty, and have a vinyl coating that keeps the cables from scratching and chipping your tow bar or anything else. Besides a tow bar and safety cables, you will need tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system for flat towing your 2005 Jeep Wrangler....

  • What is Distance Between Tabs on Curt Universal Bumper Brackets # C19748
  • The Curt Universal Bumper Brackets # C19748 referenced in your question feature a distance of 2 inches between the tabs. These universal mounting brackets will install on your vehicle's bumper to provide the attachment points for the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745. You will also need to add Safety Pins # C19746-2 to attach the tow bar arms to the brackets. I have attached a couple of short video demonstrations on these products that you can also take a look at.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Behind an RV
  • There isn't an attachment to fit the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 to the tow hooks on your 2000 Jeep Cherokee. What you can do is use Roadmaster base plates # 1418-1 or # 1418-3 with adapter # RM-025 but it is not the best fit and the parts haven't been tested together by the manufacturers. But instead of doing all of that I would just go ahead and use either of those base plates listed above with the Roadmaster Tracker tow bar # RM-020. Fewer adapter pieces means a...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2008 Toyota Yaris Hatchback
  • We have what you need to flat tow your 2008 Toyota Yaris hatchback, but the Curt tow bar # C19745 wouldn't be a great route to go with since we don't have any base plate kits that fit your vehicle that are designed for it. Instead you would want to start with the part # 521181-1 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular...
