Fast, 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 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.


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.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Freedom Latch

The Freedom Latch makes disconnecting this tow bar a breeze. This latch makes it easy to release the tension that can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed car are not perfectly lined up. Just flip the latch to release the pressure, and the arms will be able to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates. This allows you to disconnect even when you're at a hard angle or out of level.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Falcon All-Terrain 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 All Terrain 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 RM-522 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar. Now a tow bar let's you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motor home. This one slides into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on the RV. It secures in place with the included 5/8 inch diameter pin and the included clip. The Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar features a weight capacity of 6,000 pounds, and it features the non-binding design. That's going to allow you to release your vehicle at anytime, any where.

Even on unleveled ground. That's one of the greatest advantages and features of the Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar.The unit features a large hook up radius which makes connecting a breeze at any angle. Even if your vehicle isn't perfectly lined up directly behind the RV. Or if your vehicle is on maybe uneven ground. The large hookup radius makes connecting quick and easy.

The unit also features a self-aligning design. All you have to do is hookup, drive you RV forward. The arms will then extend into rigid tow ready positions and automatically lock into place. The unit does feature the extra long telescoping arms that allow for better maneuvering and easier towing. Right now it's in a locked position.

When you're ready to unlock it or retract the arm back into this portion here, it's got the nice easy to use levers right here. That disengages it and allows it to go back into the retracted position.Now that bar, right here, this is stainless steel. The inner arms are made from stainless steel. It allows for nice, smooth, easy operation. You don't have to worry about binding.

You don't have to worry about rust or corrosion. The unit itself features a very strong corrosion resistant design. This tow bar is built to last. Has a really nice powder coated finishing on the unit. That's a high text powder coat finish that provides additional durability. Again, you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion. It's FEA tested which guarantees a strong finished product. The unit features self-lubricating nylon bushings that eliminate friction between the inner and outer arms for a longer lasting, better functioning system.One of the really neat features about the unit is sometimes with tow bars your cables get in the way. On each arm it has these tracks right here. These are called cable guides. These protect your wires and safety cables. Those items are sold separately. But it does protect those wires and cables from getting damaged or tangled. The unit also offers simple, secure storage along side the motor home. These arms come together and they fold up. Then this pivoting bolt right here engages this area right here. This is the built in storage latch. Then you can rotate it down to the side. Again, that offers a really nice storage option alongside the motor home.When you're ready to connect everything it offers fast, easy hookup and disconnect. I do want to point out that the EZ, EZ2, EZ4, Classic and XL base plates can use the included quick disconnect base which is included. This is the quick disconnect base system. It installs using the included brackets and hardware. MX, MS, and EZ5 base plates use the included pins and clips and not the included quick disconnect base system. This portion right here has these brackets on it. These brackets attach to the EZ, EZ2, EZ4, Classic and XL base plates. They provide that quick connect system. Because once these are installed all you have to do is take this bar, fits over here.You can actually leave the bar onto the base plate system. That way when you're ready to connect all you got to do is line the arms up into the brackets to secure with the included pins and clips. Like I said earlier the necessary hardware to get everything installed is included with the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar.The product is made in the USA. Has a really nice design. Looks really good. Again, when it comes to the compatibility it will work with all Roadmaster vehicle specific base plates. But this can also be adapted for use with Blue Ox base plates with the Roadmaster tow bar. The Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter part number RM-031. It's available and sold separately here at etrailer.com.Last thing I want to mention for you is simply the arm length. We took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole, to the center of the base pin holes when connected to a vehicle. Fully extended that measurements 52 inches. Fully retracted it's 39 inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar.

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well. I researched tow bars thoroughly before choosing the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain. Both Roadmaster and Blue Ox have excellent customer service departments and answered many questions before I decided to go with Roadmaster. The reason is simply my preference to have the extra stability of the cross bar and for future mounting of the Guardian rock shield. The Blue Ox tow bars are simpler because of no crossbar and that is nice and clean. But I like extra assurance and beefiness on the lateral torsion forces when towing. Just my preference. The Falcon unit is well made and heavy. The channels on the sides allow a neat installation of the wiring harness and safety cables. Pulls my Honda CRV with no noise and easy to hook and unhook. I would recommend this product to anyone. 234533

This item is great, saved our Jeep. Had the hitch on with the Jeep and got rear ended. The hitch absorbed most of the hit and the Jeep was relatively unscathed. The hitch was bent like a pretzel but it still held together the Rv and the Jeep. The bar was bent beyond saving so I called Etrailer and they sent me a new one within two days so our vacation was not ruined. Thanks all and definitely recommend this hitch!! 154956

I installed it the day after I received it and it seems to tow very well. Took it for a test on local roads and an Interstate. I have been having some trouble unlatching one of the arms but it may be that I am simply unfamiliar with it and don't fully understand the process. The one arm does seem to be binding up a bit???? However, generally it seems well constructed and I'm looking forward to many great miles with it. Also bought a 6" drop hitch adapter. Works well getting our set up level between the toad and the motorhome. 185808

As you can see, I ordered the components necessary to allow me to flat tow my Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my motorhome. I followed the recommendations made by one of your employees as far which components would be necessary to meet my objective. Now that I have utilized this equipment to tow our vehicle over two separate trips to Seattle, Washington and also to Tucson, Arizona, I can report that we have been very satisfied with every aspect of our purchase. Thank you, again, for the expert assistance! 410725

The Shank Assembly on our RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar was loose and showing signs of wear, so I ordered a replacement for it as the user's manual suggests. Etrailer didn't have one in stock but arrranged to have it drop shipped directly from the manufacturer in time for our next road trip. If you go this route, you will need access to a powerful impact wrench to remove and replace the nut on the main pivot bolt. You will also need a long armed 5/8 inch hex key. 34614

I really like the retractable arms on thi "all terrain" unit, makes installation & removal easy. The length and pivoting work great towing my 04 Honda CR-V, was able to follow fine when making as tight a turn as the RV could make. Also like the channels that keep the safety cables up. Shipping from eTrailer was fast and I recieved shipment notification and tracking numbers so I knew when to expect it. 223178

I had a roadmaster tow bar before and the car was ready to accept this tow bar, soothes was an extremely easy install. I found the website a bit difficult to use and called etrailer. The person who answered was very knowledgeable and pleasant and the transaction took only a few minutes. The parts were derived when they were suppose to be. A very good experience. I would use this site again. 248974

What sold me before buying the EZ5 base plate and SMI supplemental braking system were the on line, step by step, video instructions. With little background experience I was confident that I could install these parts on my own on our 2016 Ford Focus. Also purchased the Falcon 2 tow bar and a wiring kit. Everything exceeded my expectations !! 362178

Seems to work pretty good. Only been able to use it twice. It came with two locks but no information on where to use the locks. Contacted the company about the locks. Their explanation wasn't very clear and they could provide no images of where the locks were to be used. Guess you have to guess! 28687


Comments

The locks are designed to replace the linchpins used to secure the quick-disconnect at the base plates. See the picture on part RM-302.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • The same fit information for the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk applies for the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. So the part # RM-521446-4 would fit your vehicle and would not require removing the tow hooks. I have attached the installation instructions you can check out. There may be some trimming of the spoiler, air dam, grill, or fascia required. The instructions have some great photos that will help with installation. Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow...

  • Flat Towing Parts Recommendation for a 2016 Jeep Patriot Manual Transmission
  • For your 2016 Jeep Patriot manual transmission you will first need to start with a base plate kit. For that you would want the Roadmaster kit part # 521441-1 as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. Base plate kits are pretty easy for mechanics to install. Any qualified mechanic in your area with a good reputation would have no problem installing this. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat...

  • What is the Difference Between Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar and Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • The main advantage of the Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar, # RM-522, is that it will allow you to easily release the vehicle even if it is not level or at a difficult angle. In other words, you will not have to be perfectly straight and flat with this tow bar as it will not bind. The All Terrain version also features integrated cable channels to hold the cables up out of the way. The Falcon 2, # RM-520, has the potential to bind and you will want to be sure that you are as flat and straight...

  • Best Flat Towing Setup Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox flat towing setups are excellent choices that would work well on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In my personal experience with both systems I prefer the Blue Ox setups. Our installers feel the same way. The removable portions of the base plate kits are a bit easier to take off, and the tow bars seem to operate smoother. For a tow bar I would highly recommend the Blue Ox Aventa LX part # BX7445. This tow bar is the easiest to connect and disconnect on level...

  • Can I Flat-Tow My 1993 Chevrolet Geo Tracker
  • I did some research and found that your 1993 Chevrolet Geo Tracker is able to be flat-towed or towed with all 4 wheels on the ground. You will want to check with your dealership as the 2WD and 4WD models vary as to additional parts needed to be flat-towed. The item you selected, RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar, part # RM-020, would work as a tow bar for your Tracker. If you will be towing your vehicle often, I would recommend a non-binding tow bar like the Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar, part...

  • Recommended Tow Bar, Baseplate and Brake System for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler for Flat Towing
  • At this time we don't offer base plates that would work with aftermarket front bumpers on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I am happy to recommend the Roadmaster # RM-521448-5 and # RM-521448-4 that works with factory installed front bumpers. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon all terrain # RM-522 because it has the hassle free Freedom Latch which allows quick disconnect from your towed vehicle. In addition, I recommend a Roadmaster safety cable # RM-643. It's an extra...

  • How To Clean Tow Bar Arms On Roadmaster Tow Bar
