Easy Hookup with Self-Aligning Arms

Blue Ox Acclaim Self-Aligning Arms

The Acclaim's convenient, self-centering arms help to make hookup a snap. Older and more economical tow bars have rigid arms that are essentially locked in place so you have to drive your towed vehicle into the exact position necessary for hookup. But with the Acclaim, you can connect from the approximate towing position quickly and easily. Once you have connected the tow bar to both your vehicle's base plates and your RV's hitch ball, simply drive your RV forward until the tow bar arms fully extend and lock in place. Before hitting the road, be sure to check that the arms are properly latched to avoid damage to your towing setup.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Blue Ox Acclaim Non-Binding Tow Arms

Being unable to unhook your car because of a bind in the tow bar is really frustrating. Sharp turns and uneven terrain at campsites can put your tow bar in a bind, even if you're careful.


Fortunately, Blue Ox has defeated the age-old problem of binding by creating a tow bar that is just as easy to release as it is to hook up. Simply press down the handles on the tow bar arms until the internal latch disengages. By releasing some of the static pressure from the tow bar, you can move the arms just enough to make disconnecting from the base plates a snap, even when it's not level with your RV.


Sturdy, Dependable Triple-Lug Connection

Blue Ox Acclaim Triple-Lug Connection

The Blue Ox base plates on your vehicle are equipped with two tabs each that connect to the brackets on the ends of the tow bar arms. The triple-lug design of the Acclaim tow bar creates a tighter, more stable connection by surrounding both base plate lugs. The result is a sturdy, reinforced connection that is strong and rigid for a safe, dependable towing experience.


Hooking up the Acclaim to your base plates is as simple as it is secure. Just line up the triple-lug end of the tow bar arm with the base plate so that the center lug is positioned between the two tabs of the base plate. Then insert the 1/2" keeper pin through all of the lugs and secure it with the included quick pin.


Vinyl-Coated Safety Cables Included

Blue Ox Acclaim Safety Cables

The vinyl-coated safety cables, which have a 5,000-lb weight rating, provide added protection should the tow bar ever disconnect during towing. Steel S-hooks connect each cable to your towed vehicle's base plates and to your motorhome's trailer hitch.


Simple Storage

Blue Ox Acclaim Easy Storage

The Acclaim can be easily stored on your towed vehicle when it's not in use. Simply disconnect the arm on the driver's side from the base plate bracket and swing it over to the other arm so that they are side by side. Secure the arms together with the integrated holding pin. Then line up the folded tow bar with the front of your vehicle so that the coupler is positioned next to the driver's-side base plate. Using the 1/2" keeper pin, connect the holding bracket beneath the coupler to the base plate bracket and secure it with the quick pin.


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.

Arrived on time. Works on my iM Toyota. I like this better than the 2" received models for motorhomes for towing 5000 lbs or less. Much easier and quicker to connect. This hitch folds and stays on the car while traveling. Always pleased with the service from etrailer.com!


Comments
This is the second Blue Ox Unit I have owned. The first for a motorcoach and the second to make transfers with my 3500 pickup. Love the tow bar. Much easier to connect than the receiver type - and - stows on the front of my Toyota iM. Blue Ox products are first class and I always purchase from Etrailer if they stock it because of the professionalism and service.

This is a great towbar for a CRV and folds conveniently out of the way on the front of a Honda CRV without having to remove everything. I just fold it sideways and drive it around wherever we need to go. Even at home, if take the CRV, the folded towbar is still attached. works great.

Just received the hitch, I was expecting to have some assembly required, but it was already to mount onto my Jeep and stow. Great looking product and competitively priced. Troy H. was very helpful during the ordering process, it made me feel comfortable that I was buying the correct style for my base plate and use.


Comments
I am still excited about the product, works very well. I bought a new Jeep, had the appropriate base installed, and transferred the hitch over to the new Jeep. I had bought a cover and it has protected the hitch when on or off the Jeep. I recommend the Blue Ox products for your towing needs.

This tow bar works great after the year I've had it and still is as easy to put on and off my vehicle as when I first got it.

  • Recommended Flat Tow Setup for Blue Ox Tow Bar on 2008 Honda CR-V
    For your 2008 Honda CR-V, you will want to start with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX2246 which will be directly compatible with your tow bar. The tow bar you are describing is likely the old alpha or avail model, either of which will work just fine. If you want to determine which model you have, you can find it printed on the driver's side leg under the latch handle according to my contact at Blue Ox.

In order to use this tow bar on a 1999 Honda CR-V you'll need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX2218.

  • Difference in Blue Ox Acclaim vs. Alpha Tow Bars
    Biggest difference is how they connect to the tow vehicle. The Alpha part # BX7380 slides into a hitch opening and the Acclaim # BX4330 connects to a hitch ball like a trailer does. The preferred method is the Alpha which allows you to fold the tow bar up on the tow vehicle and store it there when not in use. Aside from that the Alpha has a higher capacity of 6,500 lbs and the Acclaim is rated at 5,000 lbs.

  • Is Blue Ox Acclaim BX4330 Tow Bar Compatible With a 34 Inch Base Plate Spread
    The fact that the base plate tabs are spaced at 34 inches apart won't make too much of a difference other than the fact the wider spread will move the vehicle incrementally closer to the rear of the motorhome, and it will prevent the use of a car-mounted towbar like the Blue Ox # BX4330 Acclaim tow bar . The Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7380 would be compatible with a 34 inch base plate spread, and is what I'd recommend. I've linked to a demonstration video featuring the Blue Ox Alpha tow bar.

  • Tow Bar Type and Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2006 Honda CR-V
    Coupler style tow bars are generally preferred as they are easier to store and don't require a ball mount with a hitch ball. They also provide a really solid connection.
