Sturdy, Built-to-Last Aluminum Tow Bar

Dominator Tow Bar

The Dominator - the lightest weight tow bar in Demco's Victory Series - is tough and built to last. Lightweight aluminum with durable steel components integrated throughout offers the strength you need to pull up to 7,500 lbs. And durable, anodized aluminum inner arms keep the weight of the tow bar down and allow for smooth operation. Quality-engineered pivot points and hardware ensure both strength and maneuverability. Two hitch pin holes allow you to position the tow bar closer to or further from your RV, without sacrificing load capacity.


The aluminum arms are naturally rust and corrosion resistant, and the anodized finish protects against the elements and flying road debris.


Dominator Tow Bar

Fast, Easy Hookup

Dominator Independent Arms

With independent, easy-to-maneuver arms, the Dominator makes connecting your towed vehicle to your motorhome a breeze. Unlike most tow bar arms that move together along a single plane, the Dominator tow bar arms operate completely separately from one another. A vertical bolt through the head of the tow bar keeps the arms positioned one on top of the other, allowing for a more fluid hookup. The arms pivot horizontally on this bolt, allowing for an unlimited spread so that you can hook up to base plates with almost any spacing. A built-in joint at the base of each arm allows for vertical movement so that you don't have to tilt the entire head when positioning the arms.


Dominator on GMC

The arms telescope for easy extension to your base plate connection points, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV. The self-supporting design of the arms also allows you to telescope one arm out and attach it to the base plate without having to worry about supporting the opposite arm at the same time. The arms lock into place when you're ready to tow, and the extra length of the arms allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motorhome and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motorhome without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Dominator Non-Binding Design

The built-in trigger releases make it easy to disconnect the Dominator. Tension can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed vehicle are not perfectly aligned. Engaging the trigger on each arm releases pressure and allows the arms to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates, even if you are at a hard angle or out of level.


Each trigger release latch is positioned on the side of the tow bar arm. This allows for a comfortable yet firm grip, unlike latches that are positioned on the tops of tow bar arms, which can be difficult to grab. This out-of-the-way placement of the latches also creates a clean look for the tow bar.


Base Plate Compatibility

Dominator on Jeep

Towing your vehicle behind your motorhome is simple and stress-free with the Dominator, especially when paired with Demco custom-fit base plates (sold separately). Victory Series tow bars are designed specifically for use with Demco Classic and Demco Tabless base plates, which means they allow for easy hookup without the need for a bulky crossbar.


When using the Dominator with Demco Classic base plates, simply place the lugs inside of the base plate brackets and use the included pins and clips to secure each arm in place. Demco Tabless base plates include brackets that mount on each tow bar arm, eliminating any protruding brackets from your vehicle and allowing for a quick, quarter-turn hookup of each arm.


If you have base plates from a different manufacturer on your towed car currently, an adapter may be available. Demco makes adapters for use with other manufacturer's base plates so that you don't have to go through the added hassle of replacing the connection points on your vehicle.


Type of Base Plate Use Adapter
Roadmaster Crossbar-Style (XL, EZ, EZ2, and EZ4 series) DM9523001
Roadmaster Direct-Connect (EZ5, MS, MX series) DM9523032
Duncan DM9523017
Reese Tow Champ and Valley Industries DM9523019
Blue Ox DM9523041


Straight, Vinyl-Coated Safety Cables Included

Dominator Vinyl Safety Cables

Two straight, vinyl-coated safety cables provide added protection should the tow bar ever disconnect during towing. The cables are held off the ground by the included mounting clips. These clips keep the cables from dragging on the ground, preventing damage and tangling. Steel S-hooks with spring-loaded latches connect each cable to your towed vehicle's base plates and to your motorhome's trailer hitch.


Dominator Storage Rod for Cables

The tow bar also offers a convenient storage rod for securing your coiled electrical cord (sold separately). The rod holds your power cord neatly out of the way and up off the ground.


Versatile, Secure Storage

Dominator Bar Storage

Independent arm movement also allows for storage versatility. Easily store the tow bar out of the way, alongside your RV. The arms can be folded up to the right or to the left, or you can fold one arm to each side so that they are parallel to your motorhome's bumper. Just pivot each arm into position and a peg at the base of the arm will snap into a built-in tab, latching the arm in place so that you don't have to worry about it coming unfolded during travel.


Dominator Arms Store to Left or Right

For added protection, slip on the Demco tow bar cover (DM9523042 - sold separately) while the tow bar is folded up either to the left or the right against your RV.


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.


Towing Basics

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 Demco Tow Bars - Hitch Mount Style - DM9511008 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Demco Dominator Tow Bar. This tow bar allows you to securely tow your vehicle behind your motor home. That way, you can take your vehicle along with you wherever you're going. This is a durable tow bar that's made from steel and aluminum. They created this in hopes to create a lightweight tow bar, so that way when you do need to take it off the motor home, it's easy to do, it doesn't weigh a lot. I think this one ways around 30 pounds so it is a lightweight unit.

Again, it's made from steel components and aluminum. The unit slides into the two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your RV. There's no ball mount necessary or anything else. It secures inside your hitch with the included five-eighth inch diameter hitch pin and clip. There's two pin hole locations on this unit so you can choose whatever one works best for your application.Now, this unit uses a vertical bold design, which allows each arm to move independently.

These are self supporting arms so they don't fall to the ground when you're hooking up. It features a non-binding design, which allows you to release your vehicle really at any time, anywhere, even if you're on unlevel ground. I do want to point out that right here, we have the angled internal latch block that allows the trigger release to activate under pressure so there's no extra tools required for hooking up or for releasing. It also features a self-aligning design, so really all you have to do is hook up to the base plates on the towed vehicle and simply back the towed vehicle or drive the RV forward. As you do that, these arms will extend into tow-ready position and they automatically lock in place.

When you're ready to release it, just push the lever, and the arms can slide back in.The head on this unit is adjustable. It has an adjustable joint, or an adjustable head joint, which allows a lot of versatility. This head, as it is, is designed to pivot an inch a half up or an inch and a half down so that joint can adjust to keep your tow bar level or parallel with the road as you head down the road or as you're traveling or towing. Safety cables are included, these are vinyl coated or vinyl covered safety cables that attach securely and out of the way. This end would attach to the vehicle, this end over here would attach to the RV or motor home.

It has the safety cable mounting clips; they are included, already pre-installed. That keeps the safety cables from dragging on the ground. The unit also offers simple, secure storage along side the motor home. That way, when you get to where you're going and you want to get the vehicle out, you can detach the vehicle and then, so you don't have these just hanging off the back, you could actually fold them to the side.Now, a lot of tow bars fold together and then fold up against the RV, this one actually folds directly to the side. Both arms can fold to either side together or they can separate and fold one on each side, so that way it's completely flat up against the RV and not upright. The arms can be stored to the left, to the right, or one arm each way. Again, lightweight design, we're looking at 30 pounds. The product is covered with a limited lifetime warranty. It's easy to use, easy to operate, every single piece on this unit has a protective finishing on it. The aluminum is coated, the steel is powder coated to resist rust and corrosion. It will look good for a long time. It does come with the tabs and the pins and clips to secure it to base plates. It is designed to work with Demco base plates, as well as Roadmaster and Blue Ox, but those those, just keep in mind that adapters may be required or necessary. Those are available and sold separately.Last thing I want to show you is on this side, we have this bar that comes right here with a clip on it. What that does, is if you have a coiled electrical cable, what you can do is you can fit the coiled section over this and you can keep it from dragging on the ground. That's a nice design and it's built in. That's going to do it for today's look at the Demco Dominator Tow Bar. Again, it's designed to fit into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver and it has a capacity of 7,500 pounds.

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Rock Edition
  • Your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited likely weighs approximatley 4,500 pounds. Even if you've made some modifications to increase that a 6,000 pound tow bar is going to be enough. I personally like the Demco tow bars because of the independant arms that make it easier to hook up to the base plates on your Jeep. The Commander # DM9511010 is rated up to 6,000 pounds but if you'd like some wiggle room you can go with the Dominator # DM9511008 for 7,500 pounds or the Excali-Bar # DM9511009...

  • Can 2004 Ford F-250 4x4 Automatic Transmission be Flat Towed
  • I did some checking and it looks like your 2004 Ford F-250 4x4 with an automatic transmission can be flat towed as long as you have a manual transfer case. For a base plate kit then the # DM9517109 that you referenced is the correct fit for your truck. 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 compatible tow bar is the Demco Dominator # DM9511008 which has the needed...

  • Can a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk be Flat Towed with an RV Rated for 5,000 lbs Towing
  • According to my research a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has a 4,250 lbs curb weight (when the Jeep is empty). This means that as long as you don't have much equipment in your Jeep you can flat tow it safely with your 5,000 lb RV weight rating. I recommend using a Demco tow bar and base plate kit because all of their tow bars (aside from the entry level Kwik-Tow # DM9511011) are non-binding and can be used with different adapters for different base plate kits which means it should be...

  • Recommended Flat Tow Setup for a 2014 Chevy Captiva Sport
  • I can definitely help you out with parts to flat tow your 2014 Chevy Captiva Sport. I really like the Demco setup you were looking at because Demco offers a few kits that include just about everything that you need, plus they have very nice tow bars that will last you a long time which you can use on future vehicles you choose to flat tow. For a base plate kit use part # DM9518218 and the the Demco tow bar I recommend is the Dominator # DM9511008 because it has a 7,500 lb weight capacity...

  • Troubleshooting Demco Base Plate Kit on a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Binding When Connected to RV
  • The Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519340, for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, only use 1 pin to keep them in place with the actual mounting brackets. I spoke to my contact at Demco who said that if you are having trouble disconnecting these then you likely still have your Cherokee hooked up to your RV with the Dominator # DM9511008 and you are facing a downward slope. He said if you get in the Cherokee and back up just a little that will relieve pressure on those pins and you should be able...

  • Equipment Needed for Flat Towing 1993 Dodge Dakota 4 x 4 w/ Manual Transmission
  • To flat tow a vehicle, you'll need base plates like the # DM9517031 kit from Demco. You'll also need a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. I like the Demco kits because they pair right up with Demco tow bars. Demco tow bars have independent arms to make it easier to hook up plus they include safety cables already. Because of the Dakota's weight I recommend the Dominator # DM9511008. It's rated up to 7,500 pounds. For wiring, I'd recommend...
