Built-in LED Light Strips

Integrated LEDs

This sleek and simple all-terrain tow bar has integrated LED lights that turn on and off with your RV's tail lights. Not only do these amber lights make the tow bar stand out, but they also illuminate the area between your RV and your towed vehicle to make it more visible as you travel at night. These lights also make it easy to hook up and disconnect your towed vehicle in the dark. No extra steps are needed to power on the lights. Simply plug the included power cord into your RV's 7-way plug as you normally would, and the lights will turn on when you turn on your RV's tail lights.


Superior Design for Sturdy, Lightweight Tow Bar

Unique Eggshell Design

The unique, eggshell design of the Nighthawk 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

The Nighthawk tow bar has a larger hookup radius than previous models 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 Nighthawk 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 motor home and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motor home without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.


No Quick Disconnect Bar

Designed specifically for use with Roadmaster EZ5, MX, and MS base plates, this tow bar connects directly to your base plates without the need for a bulky, quick-disconnect crossbar. Simply place the lugs inside of the base plate brackets, and 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.


Built-In Cable Guides

Tow Bar Cord Channels

The coiled ends of the included power cord and safety cables easily extend to your RV without dragging on the road. But coiled cords and cables can get easily tangled, creating a hassle and a potential hazard.


Power Cord and Safety Cables

This is why the Nighthawk's power cord and safety cables are straight on the ends that run through the tow bar and connect to your towed vehicle. This way the cables can easily be run through the Nighthawk's integrated routing channels to keep them from getting tangled. These convenient cable guides also keep the cords up and out of the way to create an attractive, streamlined appearance for your towing setup.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Nighthawk 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 Nighthawk can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when it's not in use.


Secure Storage

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.


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 motor home. 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 motor home in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motor home'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 motor home are activated, preventing wear on the motor home and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bars RM-676 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Roadmaster Nighthawk all terrain non-binding tow bar. This tow bar lets you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind your motor home. It slides into two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your RV. It does not require a ball mount, so nothing extra is needed. And it comes with a pin and clip to secure it inside the hitch on your RV.Weight capacity rating is 8,000 pounds for this system. It features a non-binding design which allows you to release your vehicle at any time, anywhere, even on unlevel ground.

And it has an extra large hook up radius, which makes connecting super easy at any angle, even if your vehicle isn't perfectly lined up with your RV.The sturdy brackets on the ends of each tow bar arm provides reinforced connection to the base plates, so each arm attaches and detaches from the base plate with the included, easy to access pins and clips. There's no quick disconnect crossbar needed for Roadmaster Easy 5 MS, or MX vehicle specific base plates.Another neat feature about this system is it features a self-aligning design, so all you have to do is hook it up, and then drive your RV forward, and then these arms will extend automatically into rigid, tow-ready position, and automatically lock in place. You can hear that lock engage. And then when you're ready to release, all you've got to do is lift up on the lever, and the arms release. Super easy system to control and to operate.Now, the extra long telescoping arms allow for easier towing.

Stainless steel construction of the inner arms allow for smooth operation. You don't have to worry about any type of rust or corrosion building up on these. Again, you also have the nice large release levers to easily disengage the arms whenever you're ready.One of my favorite features about this system is on each arm, right here along the side. It has the integrated LED lights. These are designed to illuminate with your RV taillights.

Makes it super easy to hook up or disconnect in the dark, or in low light conditions, and it also provides greater visibility for your towing setup when you're out on the road.Now, this unit features strong, corrosion resistant touches to it. This unit is built to last. FEA testing guarantees a strong finished product. It features self-lubricating nylon bushings to eliminate friction between the inner and the outer arms for a longer lasting, better functioning system. Externally, we're looking at a lightweight aircraft grade aluminum body.

So, it's lighter compared to other tow bars on the market. It's also very durable and rust-proof. But don't let the aluminum construction throw you off at all, because they do also incorporate steel and stainless steel parts that are built in at critical components or points to maintain structural integrity. Then, exterior, it has a really nice powdercoated finish to provide additional durability as well as corrosion resistance.Now, another neat feature about the system is you'll notice that these arms right here are pretty thick. That's because it has the built in cable guides. The cable guides run underneath the arm, and those are designed to protect the included coiled safety cables, as well as the . Your electrical hook up cables. The cable guides, again, are designed to protect the included coiled power cords, and safety cables from getting damaged or tangled.We're looking at a vinyl coating on the safety cables, with steel hooks, with safety latch mechanisms for easy connecting and disconnecting. The vinyl coating ensures that the cables will not scratch or damage your towing setup. Then we have the electrical cord. So, it already is ran through the cable guide. They do not run these through the cable guides in case you don't want them ran through, but you can definitely do that if needed, or if desired. All you have to do is remove the quick link from one end, run the cable through, and then reattach the quick link, which has your hook attached to it. But, it does come with your electrical cord. It has a seven way RV style plug on one end, and a six way plug on the other end. It also comes with your six way socket for your towed vehicle.Now, another neat feature is when this isn't being used, it can actually, the arms can be pushed together, and then they can be rotated up. Then this bolt right here secures in the built-in storage latch. So, it actually folds up towards the RV and secures in place when it's not in use.The product's made in the USA. One of the things I want to show you real quick, and then we'll go over the compatibility, is I do want to show you the LED lighting. I'm actually going to hook this up to our power source. I just want to show you what it looks like with the lights turned off. The LED lighting is amber in color. It just looks really nice. It sends out a really nice, soft glow. Again, you have that LED light strip that runs the full length of the arm, also on the other side.Now, again, when it comes to compatibility, this is designed to work with Roadmaster MX, MS, and Easy 5 vehicle specific base plates. A quick disconnect bar, part number 910021-00 is sold separately, and can be used to fit Roadmaster XL, EZ, EZ2 and EZ4 vehicle specific base plates. This can also be adapted for use with Blue Ox base plates, with the Roadmaster tow bar to Blue Ox brackets adapter, part number RM-031-5.That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster Nighthawk all terrain non-binding tow bar.

The product appears well built, have not actually towed with it yet. However, I found that the hooks on the safety cable would not fit the hitch on th rv. To remedy this i was told to use d-rings (also called quicklinks). I thought that to determine whick ones to buy I would match the ones provided that connect the hook too the cable. I was surprised to find that stamped on them was a load limit of 2200 pounds. For a tow bar with a 8000 pound rating that seems just a bit skimpy. I have only given 3 stars as I consider this safety issue overrides many other good features. 518189


Comments

Two of the quick links you describe would offer 4400 lbs of total capacity, which will be more than sufficient for the weight of your Subaru Outback.

After much research and deciding which tow bar to go with as this will be my 1st flat tow experience I went with the Nighthawk RM-676. I ordered on a Monday and received on Wednesday. I'm glad I went with the Nighthawk due to the weight and ease of use. I have not had a chance to use yet but will follow up after I get everything else ordered and hooked up. There was a gouge out of the vinyl coating on one of the safety cables and I contacted etrailer and they said they will be sending out a replacement. I like dealing with etrailer as their customer service is the best. 510388
