Best Blue Ox Base Plates for 2020 Ford F-150 to Flat Tow


Hey there. I am looking to flat tow/dinghy tow my 2020 Ford F-150. I was wondering what you think the best blue ox base plates would be for my truck? What parts will go with it that I need?


Expert Reply:

The best base Blue Ox base plate kit that fits your 2020 Ford F-150 is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BO74FR.

The reason this is the best is because the arms remove, which means when you aren't flat towing your F-150 you don't have to worry about the base plates being noticeable at all, so your truck maintains its aesthetics - or put simply, it'll still look great! Here is a list of all the best parts needed to flat tow your 2020 Ford F-150:

- Base Plate Kit: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BO74FR
- Tow Bar: Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar # BX7420
- Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267
- Supplemental Braking System: Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251
- For a motorhome with air brakes: Air Force One Supplemental Braking System for Motorhomes with Air Brakes # SM99243
- Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-88400

You may also need a high-low adapter in order to keep your tow bar level, and I've added a link to a help article which shows you how to determine if you need an adapter, as well as a link to our selection of adapters. Additionally, I have added links to instruction manuals, video reviews and installations for you to take a look at.
