Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2021 Ford Bronco  


I have a 2021 full size Ford Bronco and a 2022 Newmar class A RV with a tow package. I am looking for a complete set of all parts required to flat tow the Bronco behind the RV. Can you help me with this? Thank you!

We can help you out with that! In order to flat tow your 2021 Ford Bronco behind your 2022 Newmar Class A motorhome you will need at least 5 main parts. Those parts are a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. I have included each of those parts below, along with a brief description of their purpose.

Base Plate Kit: This is a custom fit part that provides attachment points on your Bronco for the tow bar to use.

- Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM92ZR which is made in the USA and has a limited life-time warranty.

Tow Bar: This is what will come from your motorhome and attach to the base plate kit on your Bronco.

- Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676 which is made in the USA, has a limited life-time warranty and is compatible with the above recommended base plate kit. This tow bar also includes the safety cables, so you will not need to get them separately.

Tow Bar Wiring: Allows you to use your Bronco's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV.

- Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 for combined lighting or # 154-792-118158 for separate lighting.

Supplemental Braking System: This is what will allow you to travel with and safely stop your Bronco while flat towing.

- Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # DM86VR. This will give you proportional braking with a system that never has to be removed, replaced, or reset.

You may also need a high-low adapter to keep your set-up level. I have included a help article that goes over how to determine if one is needed. I have also linked our selection of high-low adapters so you can select the correct one if one is needed.

You will also want to consult the owners manual of your 2021 Ford Bronco to ensure you are doing everything that is required/recommended to flat tow your Bronco.
