Quick, Easy Hookup

The Falcon 2 tow bar features stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently for easy connection. These extra-long arms, coupled with Roadmaster's large hookup radius, help make hooking up easy. They also provide better maneuverability and a better turning radius when towing, allowing you to have more freedom and less hassle on the road.


Autowlok

The Autowlok mechanism features a spring-loaded pin that locks the arms into place for towing. Once the tow bar is connected to both your RV and to the base plates on your towed vehicle, simply drive forward until the tow bar arms fully extend, at which point they will automatically lock into place.


Once you've reached your destination and you're ready to unhook your vehicle, press the release button to disengage the spring-loaded pin. The arms will be able to telescope again, making it easier to disconnect. However, if you're on uneven terrain, or if your towed vehicle is not perfectly aligned behind your RV, chances are you'll experience tow bar binding. This is the result of tension that can build up in the telescoping arm, and it can make it difficult to disconnect your vehicle. Using a release tool (RM-066 - sold separately) will give you the leverage necessary to disconnect.


The internal self-lubricating nylon bushings help to absorb road shock and reduce wear and tear on the tow bar by eliminating friction between the inner and outer arms as they telescope in and out. Inside each arm, a built-in safety strap provides extra peace of mind by ensuring that the inner and outer arms won't separate in the event of a latch failure.


Triple-Lug Connection

In order to be compatible with Blue Ox base plates, there are sturdy brackets at the end of each tow bar arm. These brackets attach to the base plates using 2 easy-to-access pins and provide a tight, stable connection for a safer and more dependable towing experience.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This StowMaster tow bar has been subjected to rigorous physical and computerized testing to ensure that it meets Roadmaster's exceptionally high standards. Throughout the design process, Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) is done. Each of these tests display a 3-dimensional image of the tow bar while it is put under thousands of pounds of pressure. Areas of stress in the tow bar can then be located and studied so that those areas can be strengthened. This process is repeated until any weak spots, particularly those found in load-bearing components, are completely removed. The result is a durable, strong, and safe product.


Simple, Secure Storage

Stored

The Falcon 2 can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when not in use.


Storage Process

After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, collapse the arms and push them together so that they are side by side. Then fold the arms up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically engage to hold the tow bar in place.


Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or tow dolly. Not only do other options take up much more space, they are not as easy to disconnect and reconnect. 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.


The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-designed base plates on 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 to sync with your motorhome's tail lights and is required by law. Finally, the supplemental braking system, also required in most states, brakes your towed car whenever the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar for Blue Ox base plates. This offers a 6,000-pound capacity and is designed to fit in 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube openings. Part number is RM-525. The Falcon 2 tow bar's going to be an excellent solution for towing a vehicle behind your motor home. It's designed to fit in 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube openings so we don't have to worry about having a ball mount and all the extra adapters that might come with that to make it fit onto the back of your motor home. As long as you've got that receiver hitch, you're going to be in good shape. Now you'll see our connection points here at our car. These are Blue Ox base plate compatible.

That's what's going to set this one apart from our standard Falcon 2. They've got the triple lug design that slides right into the removable arms of that Blue Ox base plate allowing you to use the great Falcon 2 tow bar with the base plate of your choice. So you don't have to scramble around and find extra parts, both the pin and clip for the receiver tube mount and for the arms where they go into the vehicle are going to be included. The Falcon 2's going to offer a cell phone 00:01:06 lining design. Essentially, once we've got it hooked up here, we just drive forward, maybe make a small 's' that extends both of our arms, and our auto lock buttons are going to go from a lower position raised up into our higher position indicating on both sides here that we've got good positive lockout and we won't have to worry about these arms moving in or out. These long arms really help us out whether it comes to parking lots, campsites, just getting around town. We've got our RV turned over as hard as it will go. It's turned as sharp as an angle as it can go, you can see.

Still going to have plenty of clearance room here, so we're not going to have to worry about the back corner of the RV making contact with our vehicle. The Falcon 2 is going to give us a nice long telescoping arm on each side here. That provides good clearance from the back of our motor home and the front of our towed vehicle. All of our moving parts on our tow bar are going to have stainless steel construction from our pivot bolt here to the arms that are going to slide inside, even up to the nut used at the pivot here at the front, and the large pivoting bolt that comes through. These are going to stay in really good condition, and they make our tow bar easier to use so we don't have to fight it so much trying to get it connected. We also have durable powder coat on our other components here that's going to keep the chipping down to a minimum and also help to prevent rust and corrosion. It allows you to disconnect even if your vehicle's not exactly in line behind your RV, maybe it's slightly uneven ground that you're trying to unhook on. Some tow bars just don't like that, and they won't unhook.

You really have to get in there and move them and shake them and try to get them disconnected. That's just not the case with the Falcon 2. It's just going to give you a good long-lasting heavy duty tow bar that will last you for years to come. They've even provided a self-lubricating bushing right here where our inner arm meets the outer arm. That's going to give us years of good service as well. Now with our auto locks popped up in that ready position, let's go ahead, take a lap around the parking lot here, and you can see how it looks. When we're ready to release the tow bar, we just want to push down on the 2 auto lock buttons.

We'll pull the pins and the clips out, put the 1 on each side, bring those arms in, and we kind of just bring them together slightly and push them up until we get into that locked position. Then we can rotate our arms over to one side or the other. Nice compact storage without having to add a lot to the rear of the vehicle if you want to leave it on until you need it next time. The installation of the Falcon 2 with Blue Ox adapters is going to be a very simple thing to do. Essentially, we're just going to line up the hole that is in the shank of the tow bar with the hole in our receiver hitch. Once those are lined up, we'll take our provided pin, we're going to slide that through, and we'll secure it on the other side with a clip. That's all there is for the connection to the motor home. Now we can release the lever located right here on the back side, pull out on that, and we'll rotate it down closer to the appropriate position. You'll want to spread those arms out a little bit. We're going to pull the pin and clip located at the end of each of our bars and we'll bring that out so it lines up with the removable arms in the base plate there, slide that through, and put our clip in to secure it. Once this is done on both sides, we're ready to hook up the rest of our connections and hit the road. That's going to complete our look at the Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar for Blue Ox base plates, part number RM-525.

I ordered an entire setup to flat tow my Subaru with my RV. Having never done this before I was nervous about missing something I might need. etrailer made it very easy when I called them on the phone. I told them what I was trying to do and they made sure I had everything needed to complete the job. I was given a name and phone number to call the same person if I had any issues. When one of the boxes was opened it was missing two pins from the manufacturer. A quick phone call and they had them in the mail in a matter of hours. This kind of personalized service is missing in our ever changing world. It was a pleasant surprise to find it here. Great Job etrailer. I will favorably recommend to everyone. 493273

Review from a similar Roadmaster Falcon 2 in Tow Bars


The Falcon 2 was a replacement for my old Falcon 2 bar which had well over 130K miles on it. The new Falcon 2 bar appears to be better built than the old one so I expect much longer life. 135490

I have put 5000 miles on the bar and am very happy with its construction

Review from a similar Roadmaster Falcon 2 in Tow Bars


In February 2016 I bought a used Class A Motorhome with came with a Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar. After a couple of trips around the country in my motorhome, I quickly realized why the majority of motorhomes I saw had a vehicle in tow. I searched for a decent tow vehicle and in June purchased a 2003 Chevy Tracker. I didn't know anything about Raodmaster or the quality of their products so I started reading reviews from satisfied owners and quickly realized I had a very good tow bar so I researched what I needed to hook it up on my Tracker. I got acquainted with eTrailer when I purchased the Base Plates to attach my Raodmaster Falcon tow bar to my Tracker. Derek at eTrailer was very helpful and took the time ensuring that I had the right parts to use with my used tow bar. The customer service I received was outstanding. I actually received my base plates the next day with free shipping! The installation instructions were clear and concise and I installed the base plates in about 1 hour and was ready to go. I took several trips (about 4,000 miles) with my Tracker in tow behind me and never had any issues. My Falcon Tow Bar I got with my RV is at least 10 years old and I considered buying a new one but I didn't want or need to spend the extra money since there really wasn't anything wrong with it. Then my last trip of the year (end of November) I was about 75 miles away from home running 75 mph (in traffic), when my Tracker (in tow behind me) was rear-ended on the highway. This accident could have been catastrophic but it wasn't. My old Falcon Tow Bar absorbed the majority of the impact! Needless to say, the tow bar was destroyed but the RV and Tracker never let go of each other. After settling up with the insurance company and fixing my Tracker, when it came time to buy a new tow bar, the Roadmaster Falcon II and eTrailer was a no-brainer. In my opinion, the quality of the Roadmaster product saved lives last November! 342114

The EZ4 base plates installed as per instructions. Taking my time so as to not miss anything the procedure took just over 3 hours to install by myself. I haven't had a chance to use the roadmaster falcon 2 tow bar but I'm sure all will be good when I do. My motorhome is having a couple of repairs done so as soon as I can I will test the falcon 2 . This is the second time I have purchased from etrailer and I have nothing but good things to say. Thanks to all involved. 575221

I bought all the equipment to hook up my 2018 Ford Focus to my motorhome and had the equipment installed by the folks Ford recommended as they do all there warranty work. It all work great and several people that seen me asked where I got the equipment. and I told them etrailer. I had one small problem with a ground and etrailer help me out and got me back on the road. The best thing I like about the roadmaster 2 set up as it is so easy to connect and disconnect. several others said they could not believe how fast it was to connect and disconnect. 697030

I bought this Roadmaster Falcon 2 to replace an old RM 5250 that an arm had frozen on and no parts available for one 20 years old. I looked online for pricing found a great price on another site did not order for a few days kept looking and ran across Etrailer. I called and got Angela W. Told her what I wanted she matched the price. Great price, excellent customer service placed order then 3 hours later I realized I had given her wrong shipping address called and got David G. Told him what I did told me he would get it corrected. Received it 5 days later it arrived at correct address exactly as scheduled. Bottom line I will use etrailer for future needs because of great customer service. Ken M. 588180

I didn't want to give "It looks like a good item" type of review. I have put 5k miles on this tow bar system and it has honestly been the best investment so far. It is simple to attach your vehicle to ( usually less than 3 minutes to have it attached and chains hooked up) and unhook is even easy by yourself. I would 100% recommend this product and etrailer.com for the customer service they bring to you. Thank you for everything. 577858

A year later and this tow bar still going strong. After my initial WA-Chicago trip, Ive driven to KY, FL, PA, VA, TX, CO, UT, and back to WA without a hitch. Worth every penny!

  • Recommendation for Flat Towing System 2014 Chevy Traverse LTZ
  • The RoadMaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain Combo Towing Kit - 10,000 lbs # RM-9243-3 and the Falcon tow bar will be similar to the # RM-520 or Falcon 2 # RM-525 and will work well. There is no reason why these cannot be used on your 2014 Chevy Traverse LTZ. For your base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 523175-4. This is a custom fit for your vehicle and will work well with the tow bar. There are some additional wiring switches you will want...

Unfortunately, there is no way around using an adapter as none of the towbars will come off the shelf ready to couple to this bumper. You will need to use an adapter like part # BX88303 for Blue Ox tow bars or part # RM-035 for Roadmaster tow bars.
