Quick, Easy Hookup

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 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.


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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bars - Hitch Mount Style - RM-520 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RM-520, this is the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar System, rated at 6,000 lbs. The tow bar system is going to allow you to safely and effectively tow your vehicle behind your RV. This one is going to feature a quick-disconnect system that lets you quickly and easily mount and remove the tow bar on your own. Each arm is going to be a telescoping arm so it's going to make hooking up and disconnecting pretty simple and it's going to automatically center and lock as you drive ahead to prevent sway. There is a release tool available here at etrailer.com, sold separately, with RM-066. That's just going to help in unlocking binded arms when disconnecting. It's also going to come with the full-length steel crossbar that's going to provide increased strength and support. This right here is our storage latch that's going to allow the tow bar to automatically lock in place when folded toward the motor home, providing nice, secure storage. So when it's not connected to the tow vehicle, these arms actually squeeze together and they can be raised up to a 90-degree angle to sit parallel with the back of your RV or motor home. And that latches, there's a spring loaded latch that's going to allow you to move the arms back down into a connect position. Here on the telescoping arms is going to feature a stainless steel inner arm on each arm, so that construction is just going to allows for a smoother operation and it's also going to provide a lot of protection against rust and corrosion. The entire system has a really nice high-tech powder coated finish so its going to provide additional durability. This portion is here is going to be the portion that slides into the 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It comes with the 5/8" pin and clip, so that's awesome to have. This is going to give us a capacity of 6,000 lbs.

It's going to be compatible with all Roadmaster vehicle-specific base plates - EZ, MS, MX, XL and Standard. Its going to come with all the mounting hardware you need to get this crossbar mounted to the vehicle that you're going to be towing. Real quick, I just want to show you how to disconnect the arms. All you got to do is lift up on the clip, pull it out of the pin, that's going to release the arm. You can see here how this portion is going to pivot, allowing disconnect and connecting very easy. The telescoping arms when fully extended they lock in the place, so the only way to disengage that locked position is to push in on this button, and then you can bring your arms back in. The other thing that I wanted to show is the actual bracket that's going to be mounted to the vehicle. Pretty simple design. It does have an indicator on it showing you which side of the bracket needs to be facing up and its also going to say what side of the cart goes on, so this one says up and driver side of car.

So it's really simple to know where everything goes. And then to reconnect the arm, all you got to do is telescope it out a little to get the holes to line up and you just take your pin, place it through, line up the holes and then insert the clip and fold it over to secure in place. Again, all the mounting hardware that you need is included. That's going to do it for our review of part number RM-520, this is the RoadMaster Falcon 2. .

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

  • Sway Bar Recommend for 2014 Itasca Cambria and Flat Tow Parts for 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    The Jeep Active Drive II is the correct 4WD transfer case to allow your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk to be flat towed as it has a neutral setting that is used for flat towing. There are no speed restrictions I was able to find for your vehicle either. Your 2014 Itasca Cambria Class C would have no problem flat towing this vehicle too. For sway bars you'd want the part # RM-1139-147 for the rear bar, and part # RM-1139-176 for the front. This will make a huge difference in the handling...

  • Maximum Spacing for Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar
    I reached out to my contact at Roadmaster and he said that the Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 has a maximum base plate/D-ring mount spacing of 33 inches (and a minimum of 26 inches). If the D-rings on your Jeep are spaced apart by 33 inches the Falcon 2 Tow Bar will work great. If you have 1 inch thick D-rings you will need part # RM-035-1 and for 3/4 inch thick D-rings you will use # RM-035.

  • Why Does Tow Bar Need To Be Level When Flat Towing a Vehicle
    If a tow bar isn't sitting with the accepted level range you will have a few issues. You will wear out the front suspension of the towed vehicle and you will wear out the front tires of the vehicle being towed. Also, tow bars eventually will wear out over time. If you have an out of level setup the bar will wear out quicker too. I attached a help article that covers how to pick out an adapter that will allow the trailer to be towed level.

  • Safety Cable Recommendation When Flat Towing a Vehicle
    Safety cables are sold in sets of 2. You will need 2 cables when flat towing a vehicle. You will also want to make sure that the cables criss-cross beneath the tow bar. This is a safety measure so that the cables form a cradle that can catch the tow bar in the event it becomes detached from the tow vehicle. You also want cables that have a listed capacity that is greater than the gross vehicle weight (the weight of the vehicle and everything in it). For a good set of 6,000 pound cables,...
