This was advertised and after specific questioning with you, it was promised that it would fit on my 2020 Ford F150. It took some cutting and manipulation by my installer to finally make it work. I would not recommend this to anyone for a 2020 Ford F-150As it does not work without major modification. I tried to save a little dollars and buy the Curt instead of the blue ox and it was a mistake

The products are perfect but the best part of the whole experience was Sheryl!!! The parts I had originally ordered we’re back ordered and our departure for the winter was going to delayed for weeks and with winter setting in it wasn’t going too be good. Sheryl knew exactly what parts would do the job and got them delivered to us before the original order would have arrived. Service above and beyond!!! Thank you for saving the day.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Base Plates

  • Will the Curt Base Plate Kit for a 2019 Ford F-150 Work With Blue Ox Tow Bar
    The Curt Custom Base Plate Kit part # C78FR is an excellent option for a 2019 Ford F-150. It is listed as a fit for all models regardless of features. The base plate kit like all base plate kits is not given any sort of weight capacity, it will be suitable for the weight of the vehicle under any condition. The Curt Custom Base Plate Kits are directly compatible with Blue Ox Tow Bars so you will be good to go. In regards to an installation video, this will be available on the product page...

  • Does Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for 2014 Ford F-150 Require Use of Crossbar
    The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BO74FR that you referenced does not require a crossbar between the two mounts. This style of base plate is more common on trucks as they have much more robust frames than other vehicles. Due to this difference a crossbeam is just not needed. Your tow bar would work easily with this.

  • What are the Differences in the Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates on my 2020 Ford F-150
    The only difference in the two base plates you mentioned the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit part # C78FR and the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BO74FR is the manufacturer. I would take the value all day long! We do have a Roadmaster 10k tow bar like the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar part # BX7420 in the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar part # RM-422 you will use the Blue Ox Adapters part # RM-031 to adapt it to the Curt Base Plate part # C78FR. The Blackhawk does not include...

I've listed the recommended parts for this setup below for you to easily find them.

  • What is the Capacity Listed on Tow Dollies Referring To and How to Flat Tow a 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor
    The weight listed on a trailer dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Foldable - 4,800 lbs # DM9713045 refers to the maximum vehicle curb weight that can be used on the dolly, so you would be able to use a vehicle with a curb weight under 4800-lbs. This is our largest dolly available and it looks like the 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor has a curb weight of between 5,508-lbs and 5,684-lbs, so this dolly would not be sufficient, but I do have a solution for you. If you're...

  • Comparing Roadmaster And Blue Ox Flat Tow Components For 2020 Ford F-150
    I would be happy to recommend the parts needed to flat tow your new 2020 Ford F-150 behind your 2021 Winnebago Adventurer 29B but first you will need to confirm the weight of your F-150 as they can weight between 4090-5684lbs depending on which model you have. Since your Adventurer has a trailer hitch receiver rated for 5000lbs, if your F-150 exceeds that you will need to reach out to Winnebago to find out if there is a heavier duty trailer hitch receiver option for you. Moving on to the...
