Is Roadmaster Falcon 5250 Tow Bar Compatible with Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit for 2020 Envision


Looking for a used tow bar, I come acroos Falcon 5250 quite often. Would that work with the RM-523196-5 base plate? Thanks,


Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, the Falcon 5250 tow bar is compatible with the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-523196-5 for your 2020 Buick Envision.

This particular tow bar has been discontinued for a while now so I would imagine that you'd need the Repair Kit # RM-910003-55 to make sure everything has been properly serviced on the tow bar and that it's safe to use. I would personally prefer to go with a brand new Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 simply because you are towing a brand new vehicle, but I do understand the need to keep things cost-effective.

For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. If you do not have all of these components just let me know and I can make some additional recommendations for you.
