Simple, Hidden Design

Blue Ox Base Plate With Arms AttachedBlue Ox Base Plate Arms Removed

This base plate's hidden design creates a clean and seamless look. The bracket arms are easily removable, creating a slick appearance when you're not flat towing. Because the arms can be removed, you also won't have to worry about banging your leg into any protruding arms when you walk by.


Blue Ox Base Plate Removable Arms

Attaching and removing the bracket arms is a breeze. To attach the arms to the base plate, simply insert them into the receivers and rotate them until they lock into place. Once you're finished towing and want to remove the arms, pull the pin to disengage the lock, rotate the arms, and remove them from the receivers. Finally, plug up the now empty receivers with the included receiver covers to help keep dirt and debris out of the base plate and provide a finished look.


Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.


There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.


Towing Basics

The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motorhome's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

Very well made product. I installed it myself. I'll hire someone if I ever need another!

Excellent product would order again for future toad vehicles

the base plate was an exact fit as promised. Good price excellent product


Comments
The baseplate was a fairly complex install but was exactly what I expected for a near completely invisible installed baseplate. Was a perfect fit and quality piece... cant say the same for the blue ox wiring kit...
Jeff M - 05/21/2021


by:

Nicely engineered and built to fit into close quarters. This is my third install in various vehicles and this one was the most tedious due to the cramped engine bay and close-fitting front body clip. Had minor alignment issues that ultimately resolved satisfactorily.

2017 Ford Edge

Used the video to install. Reverse left and right mounting plates had to remove and reinstall. Should be clearer on video. Threaded holes for long bolts had to be chased Mounting tubes for connector stuck out way to far, had to shorten about 2 inches, Mounting hole for breakaway should be back further.

Great product, good installation instructions. Received a replacement product after recall from manufacturer. Great service

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I watched the video and installed it myself. I had to buy a hole saw, but other than that I had all the tools. It took about 3.5 hours. The only odd thing is the Edge hook up is very high. I had to purchase a 6 inch riser class III hitch.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I ordered a Blue Ox Base Plate for my Ford Focus. Blue Ox said they were out of stock, and would have to make one, six or more weeks? I Order the Blue Ox Base Plate from etrailer, and it was delivered to my house in three days. Getting ready to install it, directions look very well detailed. Look forward to towing our Ford Focus this summer, with our Motorhome, on our camping trips

It is working fine, have not had any issues. I installed it, fit as described.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


The Blue Ox base plate seemed well-engineered, but it was difficult to install. It appeared to be welded slightly off angle, which required us to drill the edge of the bolt holes to make them fit. The angle bracket for the breakaway switch is upright, but our breakaway switch mounts horizontally, so we had to add a 90-degree bracket to adapt them (seems like the base plate package should have included an adapter). We are pleased with the look and confident that it will tow our Fiat securely.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


The Blue Ox BasePlate has worked out very well. We've traveled over 3,000 miles on 4 separate trips....with multiple hookups and detachments. Great system. The only constructive comment is the electric hookup for lights/turn signals was a little wonky but my mechanic worked it out with the manufacturer.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Great product and am super happy with the customer service. Steve from etrailer.com emailed me the day my tow bar arrive with additional information on installation and provided a contact number if I needed. Product I received was out standing and the customer service is even better. I will shop here again and recommend anyone to this company.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Quality product. Solid, well built, perfect installation fitment. I installed this on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL and had no problems. Bumper and lower facia removal were easy (check out the online video...great instructions.) Base Plate installation was an easy, one-person job. (FYI I'm 72 and not in great shape, so if I say it was easy...it was easy!) Total time invested was about 2 hours.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


My blue ox base plate kit came right on schedule. I met my mechanic at the shop and with a hydraulic lift and air tools we had it installed and secured in about 30 minutes. I could have done it alone at home in about 1.5 hrs. It fits perfect and looks like it was part of original car frame.
Thx

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Build quality is excellent. No issues what-so-ever regarding the integrity and the strength of the design.

Installation was not without issues. Some self-inflicted wounds like when I lost lock on all the fasteners for the bumper and frontend. I bet there were over 50 screws and clips each of which had their own location. I wish I would have put them in separate baggies and labeled everything. Also, suggest you use masking or painters’ tape to line everything up before you take the front bumper and cowling off. That would have saved time.

BlueOx recommends using a 1.25in hole saw. NOT for me. No way you can get the hole saw to bite. Much better is a tapered drill. Available for about the same price as a hole saw, far more versatile, and a LOT EASIER to control.

I’ll admit to not being the sharpest spoon in the drawer and I am a bit retentive, but I spent probably 20 hours on the install. The issue I had was not with the baseplate perse, but rather with taking everything apart and then figuring out how to put it back together again with no leftover parts.

There are two criticisms I would levy at BlueOx. ONE: They provide a helper to install an otherwise inaccessible nut. Well that’s fine, but the threads were fouled and need to be cleaned. That should have been prior to shipment. And TWO: They were explicit in their measurements, which I followed, and messed-up. By the time I found the issue, I would have had to take the bumper off – so I improvised a work-around.

My Blue Ox Tow bar and Break Buddy System perform as advertised. I tow my Buick Enclave behind my 30’ class C with confidence.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I will give a 5 star for fit. I had to grind the opening on frame even after using a hammer so the nut plate would fit so overall a 4. By the way this was installed by my daughter and myself, her Mom.




by:

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Debated on paying someone to install the plate but settled on doing it myself. Would have been 110% easier and quicker if the can was on a lift. Other than that, I had all the tools needed and bought a couple of jack stands. Wa-la! Still need to get an emergency breakoff switch, which I didn't know when I had it all apart. I got this!




by:

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Pretty easy to do my self but the instructions could have been a bit larger with more pictures. I think the hardest part was drilling the holes to attach the two brackets as there was only one hole on each frame. Getting the square nuts with wire attached were difficult to get both aligned because the wire on the first one got in the way each time




by:

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I am really happy, not only with the product but the customer care I received. Very quick and helpful!!

I would make one suggestion. Take the headlights out when doing this on a Chevy Cobalt. It will make it much easier to get to the 3 bolt holding the fender to the fascia.




by:

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I’ve bought 3 of these 2 for Mini Coopers and one for a GMC Acadia. Cars really aren’t designed to be towed, so that’s why the base plates have such an involved shape and fit. They aren’t easy to install and are somewhat difficult to force into position. If you’re thinking of installing one in your driveway a couple hours before work, you’re gonna be late. All that said the product does what it is supposed to do and is very secure.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Just what I needed to flat tow my Jeep Wrangler. When I first received the base plate I was thinking about having it installed, but after watching the etrailer.com installation video I decided to do it myself. Couldn't have asked for a smoother install. The permanent base plate safety cables concerned me a little. I came up with a figure-8 over the frame that I think will work ok and I did secure it with some cable ties in a couple of spots.
Thanks to Nick at etrailer for the help and to the folks that made the installation video giving me the confidence to do-it-myself.

  • What is the Installation Time for the Blue Ox Base Plates BX2667 on 2016 Ford Edge
    An experienced installer can expect 3-4 hours to complete the installation of the Blue Ox Base Plates for 2016 Ford Edge # BX2667. This is rough estimate and is going to vary depending on the tools that you have available and your experience doing this type of installation.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Options for a 2016 Ford Edge
    All of the tow bar wiring harnesses we have for the 2016 Ford Edge are indeed magnetic light kits. There are no other alternatives recommended for this vehicle. I have included a link to the options for you. Among them is # RM-2120, a magnetic tow lights kit. It also looks like the battery has to be disconnected to flat tow the vehicle. To do this automatically when you connect the RV to the Edge you can use quick battery disconnect kit # RM-766.

  • Can All Wheel Drive 2016 Ford Edge Titanium be Flat Towed Behind Motorhome
    So I did some research on whether or not your 2016 Ford Edge Titanium AWD can be flat towed and it looks like the deciding factor is the engine size. If you have the 4 cylinder 2.0 liter engine you can't flat tow it and it must be towed on a trailer. If you have the V6 engine though you are totally safe to flat tow the vehicle as long as you follow the procedures listed in the owners manual. The Blue Ox base plate kit you'd need is the part # BX2667 if you have adaptive cruise control...

  • Can I Flat Tow a 2018 Ford Edge Behind a 2021 Tiffin Wayfarer 25TW
    It looks like a Tiffin Wayfarer 25TW has a towing capacity of 5000-lbs and the curb weight of a 2018 Ford Edge tops out at 4400-lbs roughly, so you should be able to flat tow that vehicle behind it without any issues. You'll want to consult with the dealer or Tiffin for confirmation on this. When it comes to your 2018 Ford Edge, there are some variations of the Edge that are not flat-towable; if you have the 2.0L EcoBoost with an automatic transmission (6F35) then you need to tow it using...

    For tow bar wiring to activate the tail lights on your 2015 Ford Edge Titanium when flat towing it behind a motor home you have a few options. But since you are using a supplemental braking system I recommend using 6 diodes. First you would need the 4 diode kit, # RM-154, and then 2 additional diodes, # RM-792. You would then wire it up like the picture I have included. This will only work if the motor home also has turn signals that are on a different bulb than the brake lights. If the...

You will need a different type of braking system for the new towed car, one that installs in it. This is among the items you'll need to flat tow a vehicle capable of being towed in this manner.

For the tow dolly option I recommend using the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2050-1 which has electric brakes. To activate the brakes you will also need a 6-Way connector like part # PK11604 or a 7-Way connector like part # PK12706....

Base plates # BX2657 work with SEL models that do not have Active Cruise Control or the 2.0 EcoBoost motor. And they will not fit models with the Driver Assist Package.

    Yes, disconnecting the battery with a Quick-Disconnect, like the Deka part # DW05312, will be the easy way to go when it comes to disconnecting the battery on your 2017 Ford Edge so it can be flat towed. Disconnecting the battery prevents it from draining while you are flat towing.
