Base Plate Compatibility

Kwik Tow Brackets

Towing your vehicle behind your motorhome is simple and stress-free with the Kwik-Tow, especially when paired with Demco custom-fit base plates (sold separately).

When using the Kwik-Tow 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. This tow bar can also be adapted for use with Demco Tabless base plates by installing an adapter (DM9523128 - sold separately). 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.

Roadmaster Direct-Connect (EZ5, MS, MX series) DM9523032

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.

- DM9511011

Finally got around to installing Demco base plate kit on my 2014 Chevy Spark. Took me a couple of hours to install. I'm sure a younger person could have installed it quicker, but I am bumping 80 and take my time. The instructions were very clear and thorough and parts call out was detailed very nicely. I liked the Demco base plate attach points being low and not blocking air flow to eng. and also, with the covers on the attach points they look like part of the grill. I bought the Demco Commander tow bar and E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit to go with it. I did not want to connect into my Spark electrical system, so the light kit made it a simple installation. The tow bar is a breeze to hook up to the car and RV. It tows like there is nothing behind the RV. I am towing with a Thor Vegas 24.1 I would recommend watching the helpful videos that are available which will make things go smoothly. Another bonus to this tow rig was the price from etrailer which was less than half of what some of my RV buddies paid for a tow setup. Great product, fast delivery and super good prices. I highly recommend it. Wish I had taken some pics, but did not think of it at the time. Besides the tow hookup looks more or less like most.........except better. 635686

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 213 Fiat 500 Behind an RV
    Demco base plates # DM9518300 fit the 2013 Fiat 500 Gucci and Lounge models. If you have a Pop or Sport model you would instead use # DM9518298.

The most cost effective is the coupler style Kwik Tow # DM9511011. But if you are going to be doing a lot of towing I strongly recommend going with a non-binding tow bar such as the...

  • Will Curt Tow Bar With Bumper Brackets Work on 2004 Jeep TJ
    You can use the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 that comes with bumper brackets on your 2004 Jeep TJ, though you will need to find a way to mount the bumper brackets. These will require a flat metal part of your bumper, which nearly always has to be fabricated - if you take a look at the accompanying photo a customer sent in you can see how they attached these brackets to their Jeep; the brackets will need to be drilled into the bumper. There are no tow bars that do not...

  • Tow Bar, Wiring, and Base Plates Compatible with 2019 Jeep JL Rubicon with Stock LED Tail Lights
    The Demco Kwik-Tow Tow Bar - Car Mount - Adjustable Width Arms - 2" Ball - 5,000 lbs # DM9511011 you asked about is compatible with your 2019 Jeep JL Rubicon as long as you don't overload it. The curb weight is 4,439 based on my research but if you load it up with cargo it could easily exceed the tow bar capacity. The vehicle capacity is 5,800 lbs. If you are careful, that tow bar will work for you. My recommendation is to use a tow bar with greater capacity like the Roadmaster...

If you do have a manual transmission then you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, flat-tow wiring harness, safety cables, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. I have attached my recommendations for each of these parts below. For a base plate kit I recommend the Demco Classic Base Plate Kit part #...

    Yes, you can use the Demco Classic Base Plate Kit # DM9518060 with a tow bar to tow your 2WD 1998 Ford Ranger as long as the Ranger doesn't have tow hooks or a tow hook crossmember. This base plate kit is compatible with both Demco and Blue Ox tow bars (that use the standard Blue Ox connector).

  • 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...

It looks like this particular base plate kit is the only one available that is confirmed to fit your 1980 Jeep CJ-5 (as long as you have the standard factory bumper), so in order to flat tow the vehicle you will need to upgrade...
