Superior Design for Sturdy, Lightweight Tow Bar


Egg Shaped Design

The unique, eggshell design of the Sterling All Terrain distributes stress evenly throughout its aluminum body, resulting in a lightweight yet durable tow bar. Critical points are made even stronger to allow for an 8,000-lb capacity. For example, the shank portion that slides into the hitch is constructed of steel to ensure that the tow bar can handle stress at this point. Stainless steel inner arms provide even more durability and strength.


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 Sterling 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 Sterling 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 Sterling 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, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Fold the tow bar up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically lock it in place.


Built-In Cable Guides

Cable Guide

Because safety cables and wires all too often tangle and drag, and wrapping them around your tow bar before every use is just no fun, the Sterling features built-in routing channels. These convenient cable guides serve a dual purpose: they keep cords and wires safe and secure, and they create an attractive, streamlined appearance for your towing setup.


EZ Hook Cable

Designed specifically for use with Roadmaster quick-disconnects, the included EZ Hook safety cables connect and disconnect quickly and easily. Unlike standard cables, the EZ Hook cables feature a ball constructed of stainless steel on the end of the cable. This ball fits into an anchor plate that is attached to the mounting bracket. The hook on the opposite end is constructed of drop-forged steel for extra strength and peace of mind.


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-576 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Roadmaster Sterling all terrain non-binding tow bar. This tow bar lets you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motor home. It slides into your 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver on your RV and secures in place with the included pin and clip. No ball mount necessary with this system.This system offers a weight capacity of 8,000 pounds. It features a non-binding design which allows you to release your vehicle at any time, anywhere, even on un-level ground. You can use the levers to easily release the arms.

It also features a large hook up radius which makes connecting easy at any angle, even if your vehicle isn't perfectly lined up with your RV. It also features a self-aligning design, so all you have to do is hook up and drive your RV forward. The arms will automatically extend into rigid, tow ready positions and automatically lock in place.Again, whenever you need to disengage the arms or release the arms, you just use the built in levers right here. Easily accessible and they work every time. Really nice, trusted system.The unit features extra long telescoping arms for better maneuverability and easier towing.

The inner arms are stainless steel, which allows for nice smooth operation and you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion building up and causing kinking or binding in any way.The unit features a really nice strong corrosion resistant design. This tow bar is built to last forever. FEA testing guarantees the strong, finished product. Self lubricated, nylon bushings eliminate friction between the inner and outer arms for a longer lasting, better functioning system, and it features an eggshell like structure which allows stress to be evenly distributed for maximum strength.Also, it's pretty lightweight. It features a lightweight aircraft aluminum body, it's very durable and rust proof.

Also, it has the steel and stainless steel components built in at critical points to maintain structural integrity. Then, over top of the unit we have a nice, high tech powder coated finish to provide extra or additional durability to the unit.I also want to point out that on the bottom you'll notice that underneath each arm there's a channel, so those are cable guides, and they protect the included wires and safety cables from getting damaged or tangled. It's a really nice system to have in place.It does come with the stainless steel easy hook safety cables. They're fast and easy to use, they're fast and easy to connect. It also comes with the necessary brackets and hardware for installation.

It comes with short safety cables, that's these right here, as well as quick links to get those attached. Now, only Roadmaster base plates with removable arms use the short safety cables. One end attaches to the base plate and the other end attaches to the cable anchor.It comes with your electrical cord. This unit features a silicone injected seven way RV style plug on one end, and then it has the six way plug that gets installed on the other end. It also comes with a six way socket for the towed vehicle, so that's included.Now, one of my favorite features about this system is it offers simple, secure storage up against the motor home when it's not connected to the towed vehicle, so you bring the arms together and then you fold this up towards the RV, and this portion right here secures right here in the built in storage latch, and that keeps it securely in place up against the RV when it's not in use.Fast and easy hook up and disconnect with this system, so easy, easy 2, easy 4, classic and XL base plates use the included quick disconnect system. It comes with the quick disconnect bar and necessary hardware for installation. Now, the MX, MS and easy 5 base plates use just the included pins and clips to connect directly to the base plate system. You can look at the included instructions, we have those linked on this product's product page, to see exactly how that connects. We also have multiple installation videos of this system on the product page that you can check out as well.The product's made in the USA. When it comes to the compatibility, it works with all Roadmaster vehicle specific base plates. It can be adapted for use with Blue Ox base plates with the Roadmaster tow bar to Blue Ox brackets adaptor. That item is sold separately and is available at etrailer.com.Just keep in mind that if you use this tow bar with Roadmaster MX, MS or easy 5 base plates, the included easy hook cables will not work. You will need to get some standard safety cables because those will be required, again, if you use this tow bar with the Roadmaster MX, MS or easy 5 base plates. Standard safety cables are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster Sterling all terrain non-binding tow bar.

Excellent service from etrailer.com. Their web site is all about helping with the purchase and the installation. The follow up after the sale is a nice touch as well. The All Terrain non-binding Freedom Latch is an important improvement in the RoadMaster Sterling model. I had an older model and almost always had to fight with the release when trying to unhook the towed car. 102657

Working with the team at e-trailer was a great experience, with prompt responses to my emails. All promised delivery dates were met and I appreciated the free shipping offer that applied to my order. I'm totally sold on e-trailer's personnel, philosophy, and operation. 180161

I own an RV and want to pull a Jeep Wrangler on my trips. After a few purchases, I don't look at any other site when I need equipment for my RV or my jeep other than Etrailer. I talk to Cavin and ask for his recommendation on a tow bar, electrical connections, and a base plate. Per his recommendations, I order the parts. I received them in the same week, the following weekend I installed them. The instruction was perfect, everything worked. I was amazed at how easy the installation went. I highly recommend this company, the people, the instruction and the video, made my job very easy. Thank's 516954

Outstanding tow bar for our new toad. We did a lot of research on various brands and models, and selected the Sterling All Terrain from Roadmaster. etrailer is a fantastic resource on how a DIYer like myself can install these products ourselves and save some money and better understand how these products work. George and Brittany provided very timely updates to the shipping status and made sure the components that we were ordering were compatible with the installation to my new Honda Fit. We will be returning for additional items soon. 375749

  • I did some checking and it looks like a 2011 Ford Fiesta with an automatic transmission is good to tow as is. However, you should check with the owners manual to check for any limitations or recommendations. You will need a few things to accomplish this, the first thing being a Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit, part # 524425-1. This will install onto your Fiesta and be the attachment point from the tow bars. Next, you will need a RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar, part # RM-576 and...

But the cable anchors must be attached to the frame of the vehicle or welded to the receiver portion of the bracket. The crossbar is required when using the tow bar with EZ or XL base plates.
