  • Base Plates to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock with AEV Front Bumper
  • I checked with AEV and found that you can use the D-ring mounts on that bumper to flat tow the Jeep. If the D-ring mounts are 3/4 inches thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035 with a Roadmaster tow bar. If the D-ring mounts are 1 inch thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035-1. The tow bar would have to be an RV mount model such as the Falcon 2 # RM-520. The good news is that if the D-ring mounts are compatible with either of the adapters...

  • Can a Roadmaster StowMaster Tow Bar Be Used On a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with Demco or Blue Ox Plates
  • I do have an option for you but there are no adapters available for the Roadmaster StowMaster Tow Bar part # RM-501 because this is a tow vehicle mounted tow bar and said adapters will only work with motorhome mounted tow bars. Therefore, your only option will be to sell your Roadmaster StowMaster Tow Bar and then obtain one that is specially made for either the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit part # DM9519336 for Overland, Sport, Sport S models and part # DM9519339 for Rubicon models or the...

  • Recommended Flat Towing System for a 2010-2012 Dodge Ram 1500
  • For a 2010-2012 Dodge Ram 1500 you will be able to flat tow your vehicle behind a motorhome.

  • Recommendation For Safety Cables To Flat Tow 2005 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Tow Bar, Item # C19745, is a basic but durable tow bar that should serve you well. For safety cables, I recommend the Roadmaster Coiled Safety Cables, Item # RM-643, because they are 68 inches long so plenty of length, are heavy-duty, and have a vinyl coating that keeps the cables from scratching and chipping your tow bar or anything else. Besides a tow bar and safety cables, you will need tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system for flat towing your 2005 Jeep Wrangler....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The Roadmaster Falcon part # RM-520 is a very popular and great tow bar. You have the crossbar assembly part # 910021-00 that comes with it which means you can use either base plate kit you mentioned. The difference is that the EZ5 # RM-521567-5 does NOT require the use of that crossbar and the EX4 part # RM-521567-4 does. I prefer simpler installs that require fewer parts whenever available so if it were me I would go with the EZ5 part # RM-521567-5 which does not need the bar....
