Quick, 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 2 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.


Autowlok

The Autowlok mechanism features a spring-loaded pin that locks the telescoping arms into place for towing. Once the tow bar is connected to both your RV and to the base plates on your towed vehicle, simply drive forward until the tow bar arms fully extend, at which point they will automatically lock into place.


Once you've reached your destination and you're ready to unhook your vehicle, press the release button to disengage the spring-loaded pin. The arms will be able to telescope again, making it easier to disconnect. However, if you're on uneven terrain, or if your towed vehicle is not perfectly aligned behind your RV, chances are you'll experience tow bar binding. This is the result of tension that can build up in the telescoping arm, and it can make it difficult to disconnect your vehicle. Using a release tool (RM-066 - sold separately) will give you the leverage necessary to disconnect.


The internal self-lubricating nylon bushings help to absorb road shock and reduce wear and tear on the tow bar by eliminating friction between the inner and outer arms as they telescope in and out. Inside each arm, a built-in safety strap provides extra peace of mind by ensuring that the inner and outer arms won't separate in the event of a latch failure.


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.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Falcon 2 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 Falcon 2 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.

Overall very happy with this product. It fits snug in my receiver without alot of play. It did come with a cross bar, which surprised me since none of the pictures showed it. Initially i was concerned this wouldn't work with work with direct connect base plate, the directions weren't real clear. After a bunch of research it will indeed work with the direct connect base plate.
I've yet to tow since I am still installing the base plate. Will update at a later date



by:

The road master Falcon 2 tow bar has been great. We will be starting a new season off soon with tow bar. etrailer make life so easy.



by:

The EZ4 base plates installed as per instructions. Taking my time so as to not miss anything the procedure took just over 3 hours to install by myself. I haven't had a chance to use the roadmaster falcon 2 tow bar but I'm sure all will be good when I do. My motorhome is having a couple of repairs done so as soon as I can I will test the falcon 2 . This is the second time I have purchased from etrailer and I have nothing but good things to say. Thanks to all involved.

In February 2016 I bought a used Class A Motorhome with came with a Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar. After a couple of trips around the country in my motorhome, I quickly realized why the majority of motorhomes I saw had a vehicle in tow. I searched for a decent tow vehicle and in June purchased a 2003 Chevy Tracker. I didn't know anything about Raodmaster or the quality of their products so I started reading reviews from satisfied owners and quickly realized I had a very good tow bar so I researched what I needed to hook it up on my Tracker.

I got acquainted with eTrailer when I purchased the Base Plates to attach my Raodmaster Falcon tow bar to my Tracker. Derek at eTrailer was very helpful and took the time ensuring that I had the right parts to use with my used tow bar. The customer service I received was outstanding. I actually received my base plates the next day with free shipping! The installation instructions were clear and concise and I installed the base plates in about 1 hour and was ready to go. I took several trips (about 4,000 miles) with my Tracker in tow behind me and never had any issues.

My Falcon Tow Bar I got with my RV is at least 10 years old and I considered buying a new one but I didn't want or need to spend the extra money since there really wasn't anything wrong with it. Then my last trip of the year (end of November) I was about 75 miles away from home running 75 mph (in traffic), when my Tracker (in tow behind me) was rear-ended on the highway. This accident could have been catastrophic but it wasn't. My old Falcon Tow Bar absorbed the majority of the impact! Needless to say, the tow bar was destroyed but the RV and Tracker never let go of each other.

After settling up with the insurance company and fixing my Tracker, when it came time to buy a new tow bar, the Roadmaster Falcon II and eTrailer was a no-brainer. In my opinion, the quality of the Roadmaster product saved lives last November!



by:

Excellent experience. Delivery was as promised and the Roadmaster Tow Bar works great.



by:

i also got the tow bar, which was simple and east to connect it to the face plate and disconnect. worked great for me.



by:

Installed on a 2019 Forest River Sunseeker 3010ds class c towing a 2011 Mini Cooper S hatchback.
Simple and easy. Very robust! I do use a rubber mallet to unlock the bars if they are bound up.
Thanks etrailer!



by:

This is my second Falcon 2 tow bar and it is much stronger than the 2007 made one and E-trailer got to me on time and in perfect condition.



by:

I ordered a Falcon II tow bar, Base plate for a GMC Canyon, Demco Stay-n-play braking system and safety cables. worked exactly as it should, directions were easy to follow. All hardware was included. This system allowed us to tow our Canyon 10K miles around the country. super easy to use and I was able to connect and disconnect in less than 5 min. I liked the system enough that I bought the same setup for our new vehicle.



by:

I purchased this to flat two my 2016 Wrangler Unlimited. It was very easy to install, quick to setup when you want to use it and folds way easily when you are not using it.



by:

The body shop installed this base plate and a hitch to carry a bicycle rack on my 2019 Fiesta for less than $[XXX]. Hookup to the Falcon tow bars is easy, as well as unhooking. No issues so far. The base plate is nearly invisible while not towing



by:

you sold me the wrong tow bar and then thing that went thru the tow car was wrong I guess, because we had to take out the shutter and that was against the law and I can't get inspected until I have a new shutter put back on which is going to cost over $1000 even after doing the job according to ya'll's video. Ya'll did not show the shutter at all on a gmc arcadia video. I'll have to throw everything I bought away according to the GMC dealer! Thanks a bunch for that.

I have had great success towing my Jeep with this towbar.

I bought all the equipment to hook up my 2018 Ford Focus to my motorhome and had the equipment installed by the folks Ford recommended as they do all there warranty work. It all work great and several people that seen me asked where I got the equipment. and I told them etrailer. I had one small problem with a ground and etrailer help me out and got me back on the road. The best thing I like about the roadmaster 2 set up as it is so easy to connect and disconnect. several others said they could not believe how fast it was to connect and disconnect.

Great experience. Easy ordering via phone to confirm the exact product for my Jeep, tow bars showed up a day earlier than anticipated, installed with no issues. Great customer service ! They found me a promo code save more, and no sales tax. Order from these folks and you'll save on sales tax that Amazon is charging as well.
