Very Happy! The shipping was fast; 3 days, including Thanks Giving. I was able to instal the base plat myself, just following the installation video on their web site. I watched it a couple of times while I was waiting for delivery, and then followed it step by step during installation. I wouldn't have dared attempt it myself without the video. I also installed the Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs-RM-155 using the same method. Everything went without a problem. I will be buying from eTrailer again.

Over all a very well made base plate the only issue I had was the front bolt on both of them it would go up into the plate and you can not get to it with a wrench or a socket I had to drive a large screwdriver beside it to hold the bolt and run the nut down with a wrench

So far everything is good

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


2019 Ford Fusion Energi. A lot more trimming required on the facia than noted in the instructions, but I'll chalk that up to running changes I suppose. I used a combination of a Sawzall with a fine blade and a Dremel tool, both worked well. In the end, it took me about 8 hours (over two days) to install, and had it's challenges. I had to do some pulling and tweaking to get holes to line up, and the already mentioned extensive trimming of the facia. Overall well designed product, and of course etrailer was excellent in shipping.

Side note, adaptive cruise control is not affected when the drawbars are removed. With the bars in and the towbar mounted (it's a Stowmaster car mounted bar) the cruise control works just fine as an old fashioned CC, the adaptive part just doesn't work (it won't slow down for you when a slow car is in front, because it can't see around the tow bar). Basically perfect and what I was hoping would happen.

This was a straightforward install. The instructions were easy to understand and follow. All the necessary parts and hardware were included. It is pretty well hidden once installed. I highly recommend this base plate and etrailer.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Had Base Plate installed today, shop gave me 2.5 hr labor time. I returned just under 2hrs and they were backing my car out the shop. They parked it facing me. I told the Mechanic "That was quick" He said that's because it wouldn't fit. I was disappointed and asked what do I owe you for your labor> He laughed out loud and said it on there, but hard to see. I was so surprised and pleased you have to just about get down on your knees and bend down to see it. took me about 8 min to install everything and connect it to the Tow vehicle. I'm very pleased with it.

  • Why Arent all of the Removable Arms of Roadmaster Base Plate Kits the Same
    All of the removable arms for the Roadmaster base plate kits are made differently. Basically they all have to put the mounting brackets at the same width for the tow bar attachment but not all vehicles have the same frame width. If you were looking to install the arms you have on a new vehicle you'd have to go with an all new base plate kit.

  • Does Steering Wheel of 2006 Jeep Liberty Need to be Unlocked to Flat Tow it
    When flat towing your 2006 Jeep Liberty with a base plate kit like the Roadmaster part # RM-521423-4 that you referenced if you follow the flat towing procedure that's outlined in the owners manual the steering wheel would be unlocked like it would need to be.

  • Will the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain Part # RM-522 Fit a 2007 Jeep Liberty
    Roadmaster currently has two base plate kits for your 2007 Jeep Liberty which are the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521423-5 and the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521423-4. Both the EZ4 and EZ5 will work with the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain part # RM-522. You will not need any additional parts to pair the Falcon with the EZ4/EZ5 base plates. I have attached a review video of the tow bar for you as well. If you need any other parts to complete your flat-towing setup...

  • How to Order Replacement Arms for Roadmaster Base Plate Kit
    If you were to lose one of the arms that came with the base plate kit part # RM-521423-4 (or any Roadmaster kit) you'd have to order the replacement arm kit part # RM-ARMS which actually is a request sent off to Roadmaster to have a custom arm made since they are all unique to the vehicles they fit. Due to some variances sometimes two different identical part number base plate kits won't allow the arms of the other to fit.

  • Can I Purchase Replacement Removable Arms for the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit?
    You may purchase replacement drawbars for the Roadmaster EZ kits. Each base plate has its own specific draw bars that you must use. They are of a specific shape and design to be used on a specific vehicle so you cannot interchange them. For replacements for base plates you will need # RM-ARMS. Use the instructions, linked to the right, which is actually a form that needs to be filled out to ensure the new replacement arms will fit. If you need replacements for the 2005 Jeep Liberty, the...

  • Roadmaster Explorer Tow Bar And Roadmaster Base Plate Compatibility
    The Roadmaster Explorer Tow Bar you have is the previous version of the StowMaster # RM-501 and has a weight rating of 5,000lbs. You need the Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnects - Car Side Only Item # RM-222 to connect it to your base plates # RM-521423-4. Just bolt the # RM-222 to your base plates and you'll be able to connect the tow bar right to them. The video I've attached will show you exactly how to do this.

  • Can EZ5 Base Plates Be Used With Roadmaster Stowmaster Tow Bar On 2005 Jeep Liberty
    The base plates that are designed to fit your 2005 Liberty and work with your Stowmaster tow bar are part # RM-521423-4. These are the EZ4 base plates, and have removable arms so it gives your Jeep a nice clean look when they are removed. The EZ5 base plates, part # RM-521423-5, will not work with any tow bars that use a hitch ball and are designed to work with tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch. For tow bar lighting I recommend the Hopkins Custom Wiring, part # HM56203. To...

  • Is Install of Base Plate Kits for 2002 Jeep Liberty Difficult
    The Roadmaster StowMaster part # RM-501 can be used to tow your 2002 Jeep Liberty but it will require you to install a base plate kit too with the part # 521426-1 if you have a brush guard or part # RM-521423-4 if you do not have one. The install of these kits isn't exactly difficult but it can take some time so you'd just need to set aside enough time and it would be very easy overall.

  • Compatiblility of Blue Ox Patriot Brake System With 2006 Jeep Liberty
    I've confirmed with Blue Ox that the # BRK2012 Patriot II supplemental braking system is indeed comaptible with your 2006 Jeep Liberty. If you aren't already equipped with them, you'll need some additional items to complete your flat towing system. For a tow bar, I'd recommend the Falcon All Terrain tow bar, part # RM-522. The Falcon features non binding, self centering arms, which allow you to hook up to the motorhome even if the terrain isn't completely level or the tow vehicle isn't...

    Unfortunately, the baseplates from your friend's CJ5 are likely not going to work. I can't say for certain since I don't know what they are but there are no base plates that we carry that will fit a CJ5 and your 2006 Jeep Liberty. We also do not have a list of installers around the country so there isn't a specific location I can refer you to.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Jeep Liberty Behind an RV
    There are several differences between the EZ5 base plates # RM-521423-5 and the regular EZ base plates # 521433-1. The biggest difference is what each of them fits. EZ5 base plates # RM-521423-5 fit the 2002 to 2007 Jeep Liberty. EZ base plates # 521433-1 fit the 2008 to 2012 Jeep Liberty. Since you have a 2007 Liberty you would need to use either the EZ5 base plates # RM-521423-5 or the EZ4 base plates # RM-521423-4. The difference between these is the design of the removable arms.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport Behind an RV
    Roadmaster base plates 521423-1 are a discontinued set that was designed originally to fit the 2002 to 2007 Jeep Liberty. They will not fit on a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport though. The good news is we do have base plates for your Wrangler, # RM-521448-4 (for standard factory bumpers). For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Falcon 2 # RM-520 with safety cables # RM-643. The Falcon 2 is a versatile tow bar that makes hooking up and disconnecting easy even when not perfectly straight or level...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2005 Jeep Liberty With Roadmaster EZ4 Base PLate Kit
    I really like the base plate kits that have the removable arms like the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521423-4 does because it will give your vehicle, your 2005 Jeep Liberty in this instance, much more of an OEM look when you are not flat towing it. I do not recommend using the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar # 63180 as it is a very entry-level tow bar that requires the tow bar mounting brackets to be bolted to your bumper. For some applications there will need to be a custom bracket installed due...

It is also compatible with all Roadmaster tow bars. If your Jeep does have a brushguard, you can go with the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 521426-1. Prior to flat towing your vehicle, be sure to...

You will then need to add Roadmaster Base Plate to Tow Ready Tow Bar Adapter, # RM-025, to be able to use the Tow Ready Tow Bar, # 63180.
