Quick, Easy Hookup and Disconnect

This Roadmaster tow bar has a large hookup radius to ensure simple, secure hookup. What this means is that, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV, you will still be able to make the necessary connections. To achieve this, the Falcon 2 has stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently. In addition, these arms are able to pivot in and out, changing the spread. So, if your car is angled a bit behind your RV, you'll still be able to hook up by bringing the arms closer together and staggering the length so that 1 arm is longer than the other, allowing it to reach the more distant base plate.


The fact that the arms are extra-long also 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.


Autowlok

The Autowlok mechanism features a spring-loaded pin that locks the telescoping 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 car, press the release button to disengage the spring-loaded pin. The arms will be able to telescope again, making it easier 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.


Quick-Disconnect

When using EZ, EZ2, EZ4, XL, or Classic base plates, quick-disconnects make it a snap to attach the tow bar to your vehicle. Other methods require you to maneuver each tow bar arm individually and perfectly line up tabs on the arms with tabs on your base plates. Roadmaster's unique design lets you connect and disconnect the tow bar quickly and easily, all by yourself.


The quick-disconnect brackets come in separate pieces. The pieces that are positioned on the ends of each tow bar arm interlock with matching brackets that attach to your Roadmaster base plates. Sandwiched between the tow bar arms is a sturdy crossbar that essentially turns the arms into a single structure. This crossbar allows you to lower the tow bar as a single piece onto the quick-disconnect brackets on your towed car so that you don't have to connect each arm separately. When lowering the tow bar onto the brackets, make sure that the tab on each bracket lines up with the hole in the matching bracket. Then just insert the linch pins through the holes in the tabs on top to secure the brackets together. To remove the tow bar, simply remove the pins and lift the tow bar off of the brackets. These convenient brackets also make it simple to mount any number of Roadmaster accessories, from basic safety cables to the Guardian rock shield.


Quick-Disconnect

If you have MS, MX, or EZ5 base plates, the arms will connect directly to the base plates. Just remove the quick-disconnect brackets from the ends of the arms and you will be left with lugs that fit into the base plate brackets. Once the lugs are set inside of the brackets, simply insert the included pins to secure them in place.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Falcon 2 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

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 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.


FlatTowing Components

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.

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

We replaced an accident damaged Falcon 2 with a new Falcon 2 after towing a truck behind our RV for over 24,000 miles thru 41-states and Canada in mountains and flat land with excellent results. We were blessed our accident occured on the entrance road to a campground and not on the highway. The drop down hitch completely severed between the coach and the tow bar, of which we now suspect was rated to close to the maximum load. So we corrected that situation before towing with a much higher rated 12,000# hitch. Even bent and abrased the damaged tow bar safetly brought the truck 1,000 miles home. etrailer assisted us with our original towing and braking equipment (excluding the failed hitch bought on the road) at considerable savings over local Dealers and provided prompt delivery. Yes, we recommend buying Roadmaster and other products from etrailer. 40605

Very nice tow-bar. Would not do any better anywhere else especially for the price. Free shipping to boot. Was easily put together and works perfectly with the RoadMaster Base Plate that I also purchased. Thank-you to etrailer.com's staff. Great people. 126032

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 towed my '04 Jeep Wrangler with my '15 GMC 2500. Houston to Crested Butte, CO. Everything performed just like it was supposed to. The Falcon 2 was easy to connect and disconnect. I have used "ball hitch" tow bars in the past and did not trust that style for the hills, curves, back roads and long haul towing. The Falcon 2 has a vertical pivot joint just south of the receiver coupler that seems to ease the stress on hitch and tow bar. I bought from etrailer.com because of price and availability. I received it 5-6 days after placing my order. Also, I purchased a 7 pin to 6 pin molded connector cable from etrailer.com because I could not find one locally. My local options were to buy pieces to build my own cable. No thanks. 418270

I am very happy with my resent purchase of the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar and the Roadmaster XL Base Plate. It took me about 3 hours to install the base plate. The directions that came with the product and the instructional video on etrailer.com were a big help. The Falcon 2 Tow bar is easy to setup and use right away. I will be towing a 2015 Ford Explorer behind my RV. I have not used the setup with my RV, but I did tow the Explorer around the block a few times with my F150, just to see how it all hooked up. It was incredibly easy. Way better than dealing with a tow dolly, like I have for the past two years. 334679

Easy to assemble and connect. Easy to disconnect and stow. Not a good idea to disconnect on an incline; that is, when the toad is inclined uphill. The release buttons are impossible, and some one else would need to start the engine, engage the xmsn and gently move forward enough to operate the release buttons. Not a good idea! If level or inclined downward slightly; works fine. The tow bar stows vertically, if so desired, which I do. I wrap the the whole unit in a water proof canvas to keep water out. I have towed 7,500 miles. No problems, once I sorted out what to do and not do! 252961

Great experience, quick shipping, excellent video and instructional references to go along with the products. I did the installation of the product myself and without the text and instructional video's there is no way I would have been 100% successful. These are the extra value add things that make the difference when shopping with etrailer, I will be a return customer. The Falcon 2 seems to be a high quality tow bar and was quick and easy to install. I have a 2016 Jeep Wrangler - 2014 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome combination. 339282

Had an older Falcon tow bar which I messed up myself by hammering the release buttons because I had forgotten my release tool. Since that one had worked so well I ordered the newer Falcon 2 which doesn't need a release tool. These tow-bars are so easy to use I decided to get another one and the price is great. I pull a Honda Fit and the Falcon 2 is the perfect match for me. 55117

Installed the tow bar today. The bar is made of quality materials and is nicely finished. Installation instructions are complete and easily understood. I would have liked to have one or two more holes in the tongue of the hitch to allow me to move the tow bar closer to the back of the motor coach. I really like how easy it is to connect my vehicle to the tow bar. 261539

This purchase was a replacement for a Falcon 2 bar that I have been using for over 10 years. The only failure of the old bar was my fault for leaving it uncovered on the back of the RV for 6 months. I have used this bar to tow everything from Saturn to a Chevy Sivlerado with no problem. Always a one person hook-up and disconnect. 123380

After spending 590.00, I then find out it at times could be difficult releasing tow bar from towed vehicle. But there's a solution, just spend another 50.00 for a special tool! Really?? Shouldn't this tool be included? Although the tow bar seems very functional spending additional money to remedy a potential design flaw eurks me. 196754

My old Falcon 5250 finally wore out after 18 years of towing and this is the improved version. It looks capable of 18 more years. A very good product. 103813

  • Equipment Needed for Flat Towing 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind Motorhome
  • According to my research and what I read in an online copy of the owner's manual for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, your vehicle is capable of being flat towed without major modification. There are specific steps that must be followed addressed in the owner's manual and you'll need to follow them exactly to avoid damaging your Jeep. To complete your towing system, you'll need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution to operate the taillights of the Jeep as it's being...

  • Recommended Flat-Towing Equipment for 2017 Jeep Cherokee
  • The base plates we offer that are designed to fit your Cherokee is the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit, part # RM-521447-5. This base plate kit has drawbars that can be removed for a clean, almost-hidden look. The installation may require trimming of spoiler, air dam, grille or plastic fascia. We do not offer any Blue Ox base plates that are designed to fit your Jeep. There are five items needed when you are flat-towing. You need the base plates, like those mentioned, a tow bar, safety...

  • List of Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind an RV
  • There are several items needed to flat tow your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited behind an RV: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates you can use the Roadmaster base plates # RM-521448-4. Please note the base plates do not fit Hard Rock or 75th Anniversary models. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. For a compatible tow bar you can use the popular Falcon 2, # RM-520. I have linked a video review of this tow...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ5 and EZ4 Base Plates For 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • The difference between the EZ4 Base Plate kit part # RM-521448-4 and the EZ5 kit # RM-521448-5 is that the EZ4 uses twist-lock drawbars while the EZ5 uses drawbars held in place by pins and doesn't require the use of a crossbar. I would go with the EZ5 if it were me since not having to use the crossbar is just one less thing to worry about. 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....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Behind Motor Home
  • To flat tow your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk behind your motor home, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution and a supplemental braking system. Starting with the base plate kit, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521446-5. I checked with Roadmaster and confirmed that these will fit your 2018 Cherokee Trailhawk. The EZ5 brackets are virtually invisible and easy to mount and remove. Then for a compatible tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster...

  • EZ4 or Ez5 Roadmaster Base Plate Kit for 2015 Chevy Traverse
  • The primary difference between the two designs is the way they attach to the tow bar. The EZ5 does not use the quick-connect crossbar which provides a cleaner look, but prevents you from using some accessories that mount to the crossbar such as a Rock Guard like the Roadmaster # RM-4000. If you are at all interested in using a rock guard or protective screening, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 # 523175-4 on your Chevy Traverse. Otherwise the EZ5 part # RM-523175-5 would be a great choice. In...

  • Parts Needed When Flat Towing A 2014 Ford Focus Behind RV
  • In order to flat tow your 2014 Ford Focus, you will need several items. Most tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower the tow bar to the appropriate height. The safe zone for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above level to 4 inches below. RoadMaster high-low adapters will provide you with the necessary drop. Simply flip the adapter over to achieve the desired level. I have linked you to a product page for high-low adapters. One of the...

  • Can a 2017 Chevy Colorado be Flat Towed?
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2017 Chevy Colorado so long as it has a Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. There are a number of things you will need to flat tow, starting with base plates. If your Colorado does not have Adaptive Cruise Control, I recommend going with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. If you do have Adaptive Cruise Control or your Colorado is a Z71 Trail Boss or ZR2 model you would need to go with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1721. For a tow bar, a great option...

  • Which Models of a 2017 Ford Edge are Flat Towable
  • I did some research on the 2017 Ford Edges and it looks like as long as you have a V6 model it can be flat towed. That includes AWD and FWD models. The 4 cylinders are not flat-towable, yet the 6 cylinders are. For a base plate kit you then would want the part # RM-524444-4 which is a confirmed fit and would work well for a base plate kit. 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....

For a base plate kit for your Canyon you would want the part # RM-523182-4 that has been confirmed as a fit.

The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables...

  • Flat Towing Setup Recommendation for a Jeep Wrangler YJ
  • The Jeep Wrangler YJ generation was from 1987 to 1995. To flat tow yours you will need more than just a tow bar. First you will need a base plate kit to provide the attachment point on your YJ. For that you would want the # 1409-1. This base plate kit will work with the Roadmaster Tracker part # RM-020 that you referenced, but a better option that would simply insert into the hitch of your RV would be the Falcon 2 part # RM-520. This tow bar will connect and disconnect so much easier...

You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and most states not require a supplemental brake system. I recommend either the Roadmaster part # RM-521448-5 and part # RM-521448-4. These will not work with the 10th Anniversary Rubicon or Call of Duty Edition. The tow bar...
