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 Sterling All Terrain Non-Binding Tow Bar Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar, part number RM-576. Here's what our Roadmaster Tow Bar looks like fully installed. This tow bar should allow us to safely and securely tow our vehicle behind our coach. Now, the design of our tow bar here is you can go directly into our coaches hitch so there's no need to buy an actual ball nut. Now, the non-binding design of our tow bar here is going to allow us to unhook our vehicle any time or any place, even on unlevel ground. Now, the self-aligning design along with the extra long telescoping arms allow for better maneuverability and easier towing. The stainless steel construction of the inner arm is going to allow the arms to move with a smooth operation but for the most part, this is made of a lightweight aluminum with a nice powder coat finish, so it's going to be extra durable and rust proof. Another feature is stainless steel hooks, which are going to be fastened easy to connect to most safety chain loops.

Now, there's even a built-in channel on our tow bar on each side to keep our safety cables from getting damaged. On one end, we're going to have a seven-way plugging up to our motor home, and on the other end, we're going to have a six-way plug hooking up to our towed vehicle. When we get in our RV and we're getting ready to pull away, our arms will extend fully out locking into place and this handle here on either side is what's going to unlock our arms. This is designed to work with two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers, and when it is hooked up to a vehicle from the center of the hitch pin hole to the base pin hole where it's connected to the car, fully extended is going to be 50 and one-half inches. Now, fully retracted it's going to be 37 and one-half inches. It has a weight capacity of 8,000 pounds. Now that we've gone over some of these features, let's go and show you how we get it installed.

Getting ready to mount our quick disconnect for our tow bar here, we're going to take our plate and our bracket here. We're going to put our plate over our bracket. We're going to take two half-inch bolts, and we're going to push them through. We're going to loosely place it onto our base plate, and we're going to put a flat washer on each one of our bolts on the back sides followed by a lock washer followed by a nut. Now, we're going to leave these hand tight, for now, loose enough, so we can still slide it in the slot and make any adjustments we may need. We're going to do the same thing on the other side.

Then we're going to take our crossbar, and we're going to slide it over our pegs. We going to line everything up fairly straight and then we can come back, and we're going to tighten one of the nuts on each side. I'm using a three quarter inch wrench and socket. I'm going to go ahead and tighten this up just to where it's nice and snug right now. I'm just going to take our crossbar off, and we're going to double check to make sure that everything's in the right position.

Take it off and put it on a few times. Now that we know everything is set, we can go and tighten down those other two remaining bolts. Now that everything is snug we're going to come back, and we're going to torque down our bolts to the specified amount in the instructions. Now we want to make sure that our ring is locked over our pin right here on top. Our next step is going to be putting our tow bar into the receiver of our coach. We'll be taking the pin and clip and securing it. We come to the back of our arms here, our tow bar, we'll see this black knob lever. We're going to push on the lever and that will allow us to rotator our arms down. With the arms rotated down, we're going to come back to our crossbar here, and we're going to pull one of our safety pins out. We're going to take the corresponding arm. We're going to line up the holes and we're going to place our peg. We're going to line up the hole for our safety pin and then lock into place. Now we're going to do the same thing on the other arm, extending it to however far we may need, lining up the holes and replacing our pin. One last step we have is install our safety chain anchor brackets. It's going to go right underneath our crossbar. There's going to be a spot for the bolt to drop down. We're going to follow it up with a locking nut. I'm just going to put that loosely on there for now. We're going to repeat the same process on the other side. We're going to take our hook here and we're going to attach it to our hitch on our safety chain loop. Now we're going to take the end of our safety cable here and we're going to come over to the opposite side. There's going to be a small channel. We're going to take our cable, we're going to push it through, and it's going to come out right before our crossbar. We're going to take the ball end and insert it in the top there. Then we're going to feed it down and lock into place like that. Now we're going to repeat that same process on the other side as well. Now our kit also comes with short safety cables. Now we have built-in safety hook connections here on our base plate. I'm going to take my cable, hook it into one of my rings right here. Then I'm going to hook it onto my safety chain connection point. I'm going to thread it on. Then I'm going to take the other end along with another ring. I'm going to slip it through a small hole on the end of the bracket here, slip my chain on, and tighten it up. Now we're going to repeat the same process on the other side as well. Now we're ready to hook up our connection here, plug it into our vehicle. I'm going to take up some of the excess slack and we're going to plug it into our coach here. That will finish up the look at the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar, part number RM-576.

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

The new Sterling All-terrain towbar is much better than the one that it replaced. Hooking up and disconnecting is much easier, especially on uneven ground. 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

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

This tow bar replaces a older model Sterling that I could no longer get parts for. Wow, the new bar is much stronger and heavy duty than the old one. This bar will be towing my crv all over the place now that i'm retired. As always working with etrailer was a pleasure. The fast service and shipping make me return when ever I need a product they sell. 448926

  • Complete Flat Towing Setup for a 4 Wheel Drive 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • If your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the 2 wheel drive model then the vehicle cannot be towed with all four wheels down as this would likely cause damage to the vehicle's driveline components. The only way to flat tow a 2 wheel drive model is with a tow dolly. Unfortunately, we do not have a tow dolly that is compatible with your truck at this time. If you have a 4 wheel drive model then the vehicle can be flat towed with all four wheels down. In order to do this you will need a...

  • What Are My Wiring Options for Flat Towing a 2011 Honda CRV
  • There are a few different options you have to operate the tail light functions of your 2011 Honda CRV when being pulled by your RV. Basically you will run the included 6 way connector from the Sterling tow bar from your RV to lighting method you choose for your CRV. The first method is to use a Magnetic Towing Light Kit, 20 ft.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Behind an RV Using Sterling Tow Bar
  • To start, you can use the Sterling tow bar # RM-576 with the EZ 5 base plates, # RM-521446-5, on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. 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. It is not required on MX or MS base plates but there are only EZ base plates for your vehicle. The same goes for any Roadmaster tow bar. So it would be easier to just...

  • Can a 2011 Ford Fiesta Automatic be Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • 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...

  • There are 5 components needed to flat tow your 2012 Ford Focus and those are a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. The base plate for your vehicle is the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit, # RM-524430-5. You will also need safety cables, # RM-645, as they are required by law when flat towing a vehicle.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Automatic and Manual Transmission
  • To determine if your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Automatic can be flat towed you will want to check your owners manual or with the Volkswagen dealer to see if it can and if there would be any restrictions. I checked in our information available and it says the 1982 to 2011 Volkswagen (all models) FWD Automatics can not be flat towed. A tow dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly, part # RM-2000-1, is required. It does say that all Volkswagen 5 speed manual transmissions are safe to tow. The...

  • Recommended Complete Flat Towing System For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • For your tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motor Home Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520. This tow bar has stainless steel, telescoping arms that automatically lock into place. It has a large hookup radius, so you don't need to be perfectly lined up with your vehicle to connect. This tow bar easily folds up to store on your RV when not in use. For compatible base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521448-4. These removable...

  • Blue Ox Brackets to Connect Blue Ox Tow Bar to Body Armor Bumper on Jeep Wrangler
  • I have a solution for you, but we do not have any Blue Ox adapter lugs that will work with the 3/4 inch pin holes on the D-rings of your Body Armor bumper. Blue Ox offers adapters that will fit 1 inch or 7/8 inch pin holes, but nothing for 3/4 inches. For brackets that will be compatible with your Blue Ox tow bar, you can use the Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit # BX88230. These brackets will bolt directly to your aftermarket bumper and allow you to hook up with your Blue Ox tow...

  • Does Sterling Roadmaster Tow Bar Work with Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate without Crossbar
  • Yes, the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit part # RM-521448-5 is a fit for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler and since it is an EZ5 kit it would not require you to use the stabilizer bar of your Roadmaster Sterling part # RM-576.

  • The Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521448-5 are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler and is compatible with your Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain # RM-576.

This will use your factory wiring, and yet protect it from overload as well as give you a nice clean connection to your motorhome. You'll also have a backup cable in case your tow bar wire goes bad.

  • How to Tow a 2007 Ford Focus Automatic Behind a Motor Home
  • From what I found your 2007 Ford Focus with automatic transmission will have to be towed with either all the wheels off of the ground on a trailer or by using a tow dolly to have the front wheels off the ground. I checked the owner's manual for the vehicle and it does say the same thing. It looks like the stock tire size options where either 15 or 16 inch on the 2007 Focus so I recommend tow dolly # RM-2000-1.

  • The Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar, part # RM-576, will include the safety cables, electrical wiring, and the quick disconnects.
