Roadmaster makes excellent products; having said that, this bracket system required much drilling to make the bolt holes line up properly. Nonetheless, the brackets are installed,an work as they should.l 144736

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


The Real Story - The real story regarding what it takes to install the base is that it takes about 4 hours and . . - You will need a small sledge hammer to pound the unit into the frame cross tube such that the attach points are solid against the frame and align properly at the center point bottom of the frame. - You will need to remove the wheels to gain access to the side of the vehicle’s frame for drilling the attach points. - You may need to jack the car up for ground clearance, to drill the bottom hole. - I had to cut an access hole through the bumper cover to get the backing plate into the frame channel. - You will need to pry off the frame mud guard, if your car has one. - You may need to make a ruler like metal shim to hold the back plate while you screw the bottom bolt. - A 6 ft pole lever is needed to force the front of the base down and thereby pivot the back flange up to align it to the slot like hole in the frame. This area is critical so make sure the hole you drill is match centered!! - Drill small attach point holes first to make sure you have sufficient clearance on the back side, for the large washers and proper hole alignment with the base flange - If it all goes well . . plan on a 4 hour job. - The base is a real beast and could haul a Mac Truck! - It is by far the easiest base to install, of any I evaluated. - Would you recommend etrailer.com to a friend? Oh hell yes! 137381

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


I received the Towbar and brackets complete this morning. During the interim I tried to get the bumper off to put onto my drill press once it arrives. A the Torx screws were rustlocked onto the Jeep and created a massive amount of pull to get off. First they didn't budge so I heated the screw to 700 degrees using a soldering gun (torch would also work) then I soaked for two days using WD40. To get the T55s to turn required taking the handle off the floor jack to and place the handle of my 1/2in ratchet in the handle. It worked -Just a note you will struggle with getting the bumper off. Once out and the bumper is off, put the screws in upside down about 3 threads and pour WD40 to soak in the hole. This will help you later in re-installing. Use the brackets as a template using whiteout and draw a line thru the center. You will need to start with a small still 1/2 then 3/8 then 1/2 and finally 17/32 to mount. Its easier to control the walking small bit with a centerpunch. Just a little tip to help out with the product. Biggest drawback with the bar is you cant back up (reverse thrust on the bar). Unhook and turn around then rehook. This happens where turnarounds are required and no space to make a turnaround. 179269

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


The product was received as expected. The brackets aligned with all points and bolted up first time. The hardware was great, except two lock washer short (but not a problem as I had extras in my parts bins) and double the number of flat washers (extras for the next project). But is was great to have all optional bolts, washers and nuts supplied. Instructions were easy to follow and complete with one excepting. I need a bracket part from the old brackets and that was not included in the instructions, but was clear as I aligned everything in the pre assembly. 86945

The brackets have performed as expected, no problems or concerns.

These were easy to install and exactly what I needed to tow my Jeep. 93169


Comments

Can these base plates be mounted if I have a winch on the front bumper? and do you use holes already in the bumper or have to drill new ones? can a Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow bar be connected to these mounts?Thanks Bob S.

-- comment by: Bob S - 01/03/2014

That is all dependent on how the bumper mounts to the vehicle, if it is an aftermarket bumper. If it is the factory bumper, then the bolt locations should be clear. The question then becomes, how wide is the winch and will it interfere with the face of the base plates. There is a link to the instructions on the base plate page, I have linked back to it below. Check out the instructions and they will show you how and where the base plates will mount.

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


Product was as advertised. It arrived earlier than expected. The installation instructions were simple and easy to follow. The install had no problems. You need to center punch where you are going to drill because the surface to be drilled is not flat. You need to drill a pilot hole to ease drilling the larger hole. On the my '93 Ranger Splash the bumper came off with only the removal of 4 easy to reach nuts. A wrench is not required on the bolts as they were welded to a metal strip between them that made re-installation simple. The plastic air-dam on the bottom of the bumper can be removed easily to cut holes for the base plate to extend thru. Don't replace it until the bumper has been re-installed. 159816

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


I received the "Classic" base plate kit (model 1528-1) for my 2000 Honda CRV about a week ago, but just had it installed by a local mechanic. Prior to installation, I inspected the package contents, and found it to contain all of the required parts. The material from which the parts were manufactured appear to be somewhat heavier and more substantial than I anticipated. The fit to my car frame was very good, and although the attachment points on this model are not the quick-release design, they are not overly obvious. I can't speak concerning performance, as we haven't had occasion to actually use it yet. 254972

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


I purchased a small Geo Tracker to tow behind my RV. So I needed the mounts the would allow me to tow it safely. After serching on the internet, I decided to purchase the mounts from etrailer because of low price andsimple design. (Some of them are really large.) The product was received 2 days earlier than expected. It fit like a glove. After drilling the Frame (per Instructions) the mount is as solid as if it came from the factory. What a PHENOMENOL job your company does!!! I would HIGHLEY recommend your company to anyone that needs Towing products such as this. Thanks, Chuck Thomas 10011

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


IT DOES NOT FIT WELL on a 1989 Jeep Cherokee limited! The instructions that came in the box were painfully over simplified. It will fit, but it won't be straight.The side brackets are out of square so they won't mount in line with the frame.The holes in the cross bar are undersized and had to be drilled out before the carriage bolts would fit, so now there is bare metal showing. The parts look strong enough to do the job, but that's it! If this wasn't the only option out there for my vehicle, I WOULD HAVE SENT IT BACK! 409462

Review from a similar Roadmaster Classic in Base Plates


Thank you for very fast delivery of the base plate kit. Once installed, the tow bar fit perfectly. I had to remove the front tire to get to the spot to more easily drill the four holes needed to install the brackets. It would be helpful to see a drawing in the instructions to assure proper installation of bolts, washers, nuts, etc., in addition to the written instructions. With careful reading, I completed the installation but "a picture is worth a thousand words." Thank you for a well-made and well designed kit. 99286

The base plates for my older geo tracker installed as the directions indicated they would and without any unwanted surprises.The plates themselves have quality welds as well as a good apperance. After installation was complete they were even in all perspectives.This product saved me from having to cut holes into the front plastic panels that would most likely not be replaceable.I will be more at ease while towing my tracker behind my motor home 10166

This is an excellent, strong product, that fit my older model Honda CRV perfectly. We just drove cross country. Combined with a basic rigid tow bar, this is a reliable, economic light vehicle tow set up, just be sure your hitch is at the correct height so the tow bar is level, otherwise you will have twisting problems in tight turns. 264942

The braces are very good. The installation was a BEAR. I had a hard time putting in the bolts that went into the frame. I finally fashioned a stick to hold the special nut plates. You should put a little wire handle on the nut plate to hold them in place when you screw the bolt in. 170912

Great product. Strong and holding up to about 6k mi of use so far. Only issue is it is not a perfect fit. I own a 94 and 95 miata and had to trim a little metal for them to slide in. They could fit if you were willing to hammer them into slot, but would most likely cause paint loss. 409135

These mounts fit great on my 97 miata and were easy to install after removing the splash pan and air deflector to gt to the frame. The tow hooks were already removed by a P.O. Use locktite to make sure the bolts stay tight for a long time but check them regularly. 322660

The base plates installed very easily. No need to remove the bumper cover or any other parts to the car. However, the bolts on my tow bar are drilled 3 inches apart which is a bit wider than the bolt holes on the base plates and required extra drilling on my part. 79124
