Recommended Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit For 2018 Ford Fiesta


Good morning. Looking to purchase Roadmaster base plates for my 2018 Ford Fiesta ST Line Not ST. The car has the appearance of an ST but not the performance upgrades. Looking for the crossbar style. Can you let me know what part # I will need?


Expert Reply:

As long as your 2018 Ford Fiesta has the eco-boost engine, the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-524441-4 is confirmed to fit as it was designed for both ST and non-ST models.

If your Fiesta does not have the eco-boost engine and does not have the SFE (Super Fuel Economy) package, you will need the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-524438-4.

Both of the base plates mentioned pair nicely with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 and is the most popular compatible tow bar.

To complete your flat tow setup you will also need safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system which I have listed my recommendations below:

Safety Cables - RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # RM-643
Wiring Harness - Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267
Supplemental Braking System - Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR and 12v Outlet Kit # RM-9332

You will also more than likely need a high-low adapter to level your tow bar to your tow vehicle, so I included a link to a helpful article that goes over how to measure for the correct adapter, and a link to all of our high-low adapters for you to take a look at.

It is always a good idea to check the recreational towing section in your vehicles owner's manual for any special steps to make your vehicle ready to be flat towed, and for any restrictions.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
