Smooth Hookup with Stainless Steel Arms

Hooking up Roadmaster Black Hawk 2

The BlackHawk 2 is designed to make hooking up your toad (towed vehicle) a smooth and easy process. The telescoping arms are able to extend to the needed length and angle to reach the base plate without the need for your vehicle to be perfectly level or in the exact right spot behind your RV. The inner arms are stainless steel and will slide in and out smoothly. Supremely corrosion resistant, they'll stay rust-free and functional for the life of the tow bar.

Slide the tow bar into your hitch and pin it in place. Get the arms connected to the base plate one at a time. Once you're all hooked up, slowly pull forward and the self-aligning arms will fully extend and lock into the towing position. Double check that the arms are properly latched and you'll be ready to hit the road!

Extra-Long Arms Get You Around Tight Turns

The BlackHawk's arms are longer than average, giving you an above-average turning radius. You're going to be able to get around obstacles and make sharp turns with no worry of clipping the corner of your RV. Maneuver through gas stations and the campsite no problem.

Non-Binding for Easy Disconnect

Uneven ground and sharp angles can put the arms of the tow bar in a bind and make them stiff and immoveable. Once you get to your destination, the last thing you need is to spend several minutes wrestling, yanking, and kicking at them to get your car disconnected.

Freedom Latch

Instead, get out of a bind in one easy step. Simply flip the latch on the arm of the BlackHawk 2 to disengage the internal latch. This releases the pent-up pressure so you can unhook and get on with your adventure.

Organized Setup with Cable Guides

Roadmaster Black Hawk 2 Cable Guides

The BlackHawk 2 comes with cable guides built into the arms, which offer a great way to keep your setup organized. By threading your safety cables and power cord (both sold separately) through the guides, you'll keep them from dragging on the ground and getting damaged. It's also a great way to keep all your gear together. You won't need to find a separate place to store your cables; you can keep them right there where you need them, ready for the next time you flat tow.

Engineered for Excellence

FEA test

The BlackHawk 2 All-Terrain is engineered to be as tough and durable as possible. Throughout the design process, rigorous physical and computerized testing is done, including Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA). Each of these tests displays 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 product that is durable, strong, and safe.

Simple Storage: RV-Mounted Tow Bar

Storage Latch

The BlackHawk 2 folds up to conveniently store on the back of your RV when you're not using it. After disconnecting from your toad, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Push the tow bar up until the holding latch clicks into place. The arms can then swing to the right or to the left, whichever side you want to store it on.

Stored on RV

For added protection from the elements, slip the Roadmaster tow bar cover (RM-055-3 - sold separately) over the BlackHawk 2 when you're not using it.

What You Need to Flat Tow

Flat towing can be a much more convenient way to take your car RVing with you than using a trailer or a tow dolly. It'll save you storage space both at home and at the campsite, and it takes less time and hassle to hook up.

To flat tow your vehicle, there are 5 basic components you're going to need: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a flat tow braking system.

For the RV Between the RV and Towed Car For the Towed Car
Hitch Tow bar Base Plate
Wiring plug Safety cables Braking system
Wiring adapter cord Wiring kit/diodes

The custom-fit base plate installs on the frame of your toad so you can connect the car to your RV with a tow bar. Hook up safety cables between the vehicles to ensure that the toad does not separate from the motorhome if the tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring syncs your vehicle's signal lights with your motorhome's tail lights, as required by law in most states. Finally, the flat tow braking system - also required in most states - activates the brakes in the toad when you hit the brakes in the RV, making for smoother, safer braking, and preventing wear on your motorhome.

Perfect bar to tow my 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. My earlier Falcon is great for my lighter Honda CRV. Thus one is robust and works flawlessly for my Silverado. eTrailer came through again as usual.


Used this on an "around the country" RV trip to tow our Suburban after I damaged an older model. It works great and the built-in release handles were a welcome upgrade from the previous hitch I used. We certainly put some miles on this tow bar with no issues and I'm sure will get many more miles and years out of it yet!


This is a wonderful addition to our camping experience! It pulls our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with no issues whatsoever. It may be overkill for the towed vehicle, but I like a little overkill. It's great!


Easy to hook up our toad ( Jeep ). I can connect or disconnect in about 2 minutes all while standing. Stays right behind our RV and you only know its back there when you look in the rear view mirror. I would buy this again.


Towing a Wrangler 4 door behind my motorhome, have gone 20K miles now and no issues, i am not using the cross bar as my vehicle mount does not require that.
Due to the road dust and everything it gets quite dirty of course. It has been working well along, easy enough to connect.
If you have to disconnect on a hill it gets a bit tricky to unlatch and such, but just takes practice.

A year later it is still all good, getting dirty is all. Mechanism and joints still function well.

I can't believe you don't add the cover for this hitch. Free advertising. You make enough on the price of the hitch. Not to mention every additional item that goes with it.


Not used for towing a Jeep Grand Cherokee or RAM ? 1500 yet, but the towbar is within a half inch of level on both instead of being off by SIX inches.


Easy to install and easy to use. Being newbies to the motor coach world, this tow bar is made for ease of hookup. It took less than five minutes to unhook and hook up. Love it! We did not use the base plate that came with it but chose to add the direct connect base plate with removable arms (RM-521424-5) This combination made it excellent to use!

WE have only used the tow bar a couple times but have to say it is REALLY easy to hookup! Takes less than five minutes to get our Jeeep attached. Love it!

Excellent Product , have owned one before, 3 day delivery,no shipping charge.


Had one issue when I got this. One side would not lock in place. E-Trailer gave me the 800 Roadmaster number and Roadmaster told me exactly what needed to be done to resolve the the problem. I tightened the screw on the that side of the bar to length they said (3/4”), the everything has been fine since then. Happy I didn’t have to return for a replacement.


Excellent product, heavy duty and well built. So well built it has a cross-bar system in it that wasn't required for my recommended base plate. Seems to be a lot of extra money for something that can not be used with the products recommended.

Still works great. Excellent, sturdy product.

The tow bar and shipping are very good. The bar works like it is suppose to, hooks up easy and unhooks easy and pulls my 1/2 ton PU great!! Road Master makes great products

1 year later and the tow bow is still working great !!!

Good heavy duty tow bar.


I like this tow bar having replaced it with a lighter version of a Roadmaster falcon all terrain that came with the coach when I bought it. But neither one really releases as well as I wish that they did. There is a learning curve to it I guess but I've been using this for a year now and still have trouble with binding sometimes I have to use a hammer and punch to get it released from my vehicle. Still I do like it it tows my Jeep Grand Cherokee without a problem. Recently a friend of mine had his pickup truck come off of this hitch and slam into the back of his foretravel nimbus causing extensive damage, so a good towbar is essential. I like Roadmaster products. I wouldn't say they're the best just that I like them.


Ordered and was here as promised.


Pulled entire length of route 66 and then some. We had absolutely no issues with all of our etrailer equipment. Thanks for all of your help.


great product at a terrific price!


The Blackhawk tow bar does not come with and wiring or safety cables. Wiring is not a problem, but I could not find a 10,000 lbs. rated safety cable that is single ended. I may have to use a 6,000 lbs. cable that is available in single ended.


Heavy Duty and just as expected, I have not used it yet as my motorhome has not been delivered. My etrailer representative Joshua was VERY helpful.

No issues after 7K miles Towing a 12 Ram

Didn’t use the vehicle adapter as we installed a tow bar rated off road bumper from Rock Hard 4x4. Install is simple, as long as you have the vehicle the proper distance from the motorhome.


Roadmaster BlackHawk looks like it is very well made. This is a replacement foe a Roadmaster Sterling that I had for over 10 years. I was going to rebuild it, however after reading different comments that the life of the tow bar is 8 to 10 years, I decided to replace the tow bar instead of rebuilding it. The sterling tow bar was rated at 6k while this new tow bar is rated at 10k. I hope this new tow bar will last another 10 years. Etrailer service was great and fast. Receive the new tow bar in just 2 days. Have not used it yet, but real soon I hope. I will be flat towing a Jeep Wranger or a Ford F-150. I am sure this tow bar can handle these toads. Thanks again etrailer for providing great service at the best cost. I did fine the tow bar at a lower price and they provided their 110% match.


Made in the USA,thats all you have to s ay.


Works great and very easy to connect/disconnect! Awesome product ????


Awesome tow bar.


I used this tow bar to tow my 2013 Honda CR-V behind my motor home. This is a 10,000 lb bar that I used only because the 6000 lb bar was not available at the time of my need. The bar is very easy to install and hook up. The car does not have to be level or straight with the tow vehicle. Once hooked up a small left right movement of the two vehicles as you start moving locks the tow bar in place. Very easy to use.

This hitch is so easy to hook and unhook when I fell ill my wife absolutely had no problem getting the car hooked back up and getting us back on the road.
