Video Transcript for Curt Tow Bars - Coupler Style - 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 etrailer.com. 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.

Disappointed. I purchased this equipment to allow me to tow home a jeep I bought. The hardware provided was incompatible. The bolts and nuts had different machine threads. I had to drive 15 miles away to find a hardware store that had the right nuts to match the bolts. When I contacted e-trailer they were only willing to credit me $15. Hardly appropriate for the inconvenience to the seller and myself. I would strongly recommend test fitting all parts provided before installation. Sincerely, PJ 592610

For what the tow bar cost it is the best value I could find. I was disappointed that it did not include safety chains, so be prepared to spend more. It was easy to install on the Jeep. It is light weight and easy to install and remove. 558540

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

I purchased this tow bar for my 2002 Chevy S10. I did so thinking that it needed no adapter plate per the website. It will not work without an adapter plate of some sort. Do you know of anything I can purchase to complete this tow bar? 583294


Comments

The bumper brackets that come with the tow bar part C19745 attach to a flat, metal section of your vehicles bumper. If a flat metal surface is not available then modification and fabrication maybe required. The coupler on the other end of the tow bar attaches to the 2 inch ball on your motorhome.

I ordered a towbar from etrailer. You guys never let me down. The towbar is great and the instructions were very complete. I got it all installed very easily and I am now ready to tow my Jeep to Big Bend National Park. If you need to tow a Jeep or any vehicle that weighs less than 5,000lbs you can't go wrong for the price. 613364

This is a great product. Strong and very basic, therefore very easy to use. Ensure that the bolt holes match your base plate or you will be visiting a local welder. 612769

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar?


  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 Jeep Wrangler with Roadmaster Base Plates and Curt Tow Bar
  • In order to use the Curt tow bar # C19745 with Roadmaster EZ4 base plates # RM-521448-4 you would need to add adapter # RM-025 and also quick disconnects # RM-201 (to make the base plate arms easily removable). In addition to the base plates and tow bar you will also need safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your 2011 Jeep Wrangler. For cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting the diode kit # RM-154...

  • 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....

  • Is There a Speed Limit for the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms C19745
  • If you will be doing a one time only move from California to Texas then I suggest a cost effective tow bar like the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms part # C19745. In order to install this towbar you will need to remove the bumper and attach it to the vehicle's core support somewhere. There are no speed restrictions for tow bars like the above. If a speed restriction is present, it will be from the owner's manual to protect the vehicle. The Curt Tow Bar will maintain its warranty...

  • Can Front Bumper be Removed to Install the Curt # C19745 on a 2000 Ford F-150
  • The Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 is a universal tow bar system and the instructions basically say to make sure to attach the clevis mounts to the frame of the vehicle. You can mount it to the bumper or you can remove the bumper to avoid drilling holes into the bumper as well. I have attached a link to the instructions for you to reference and a helpful article on making sure your tow bar is at the correct operating height. For a complete flat towing setup you will...

  • Will Roadmaster Base Plate Kit Fit with Curt Tow Bar for a 2017 Chevy Spark
  • If you already have the Curt Tow Bar # C19745 then you will need to use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1725 with the Adapter Kit # BX8833 for your 2017 Chevy Spark. If you already have the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # RM-523185-5 then you will need to use a Roadmaster tow bar that slides into the hitch receiver like the Falcon 2 # RM-520. Unfortunately there are no adapters from a Roadmaster base plate kit to a Curt tow bar. For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate...

  • 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...

  • 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...
