Adjustable, Foldable Arms

Blue Ox Adventurer Adjustable Arms

The Adventurer can be used with almost any smaller vehicles. Because the arms are adjustable, ranging from 16" to 34" wide, this tow bar can match the base plate width on almost any vehicle within the given capacity. To maneuver the arms, simply loosen the hex bolts that attach them to the coupler and move them closer or farther apart until you achieve the desired spread.

When the Adventurer is not in use, the arms can be folded together to save space while you store it in your garage or RV.

Single-Lug Connection

Blue Ox Adventurer Single-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 these tow bar arms. The Adventurer tow bar features Blue Ox's traditional single-lug for quick and easy hookup. Just insert the lugged end of the tow bar arm into the base plate, between its two tabs. Then insert the 1/2" keeper pin through the lug and tabs and secure it with the included 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.

Very happy with this purchase. I understand this is more of the lower priced Blue Ox tow bars, but it's well built compared to others I've seen in the same price range.


There is not a lot of information on the internet about pulling this kind of VW. I did my homework and this works GREAT when pulling a standard transmission with key left in "ON" position. etrailer has a lot of variety to offer for different needs.
This is the lower priced, plain Jane, no frills, less moving parts for something to go wrong - exactly what I was looking for tow bar. With little work it folds up for storage easily. Installation on our '98 diesel VW was clean and easy without incident (I do all my own modifications when needed. There is no rattling loose fit in tight corners or straight a ways. We don't even know we are pulling anything behind our '68 Dodge Travco B210 (modified with 5.9 Cummins)


A very well made product, though way stronger than needed for a Smart Car, though it all went together problem free. It's barely visible on the vehicle which is great, as many are so ugly.


However I am quite pleased with what I got and it was easily installed.


I purchased this tow bar to use with a Blue Ox base plate for my
1999 Mazda Miata. It is a very simple arrangement, with the 2 arms able to fold down to a smaller and more easily stored unit, but does not slide fore and aft as the more expensive tow bars do. As such, it takes a bit more manouvering of the towed vehicle to get it all lined up with the ball hitch. Not a problem for me, as the Miata is very light and easily pushed back and forth. Others with heavier vehicles may have more of an issue.

The quality of the tow bar is excellent. Price and delivery were also excellent. This is a great choice for a budget level tow bar.


Always good stuff


Good product. Did everything I needed it to do. Used it to tow my Jeep. Super easy to hook up to blue ox baseplate. I could barely even notice it back there.. pulled it with my F150. No problems turning. Kept the Jeep under control, even on the Oregon Coast. Another quality product from blue ox. etrailer did a great job helping me out. Customer service was excellent and videos were helpful covering the entire scope of setup and installation. Thank.


high quality, good price, fast shipment


Received my tow bar in excellent condition , amazing packaging . I was a little surprised that it required adjustment prior to use . My jeep already had a Blue Ox base plate installed so it was simple to slide the bar into the adapters . Much less complicated that my old bar . The only disadvantage is there is no way to keep the bar in an upright position . Looking forward to our first trip with it .

No problems whatsoever . One thing that I find interesting is the customer service is amazing. Not only with the tow bar but everything I have purchased .
Kenneth W - 04/18/2018


I installed this on my car myself It wasn’t too bad. Everything is exactly like it said. It works great. If ever change vehicles I will perches from them again.


Our Blue Ox tow bar is just what we needed to safely tow our PT Cruiser behind our 37 ft diesel pusher. Easy to use.


I bought this Blue Ox 5000lbs capacity tow bar because my Subaru Crosstrek only weighs 3100lbs and maybe 3300lbs while fully loaded with gear. I also wanted a simple tow bar that didn't break the bank.
This item arrived in less than two days. The Tow Bar fits perfectly in the back of the Subaru when not in use.


Thank you to Rodney who helped me identify this was the tow bar I needed!


works great easy to store


Works great! Easy to use.


Using this Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar on my Colorado together with a Blue Ox base plate. Both are a perfect fit and do the job very well. Would buy it again, and yes, I'm very happy with the service I got from Highly recommended. Ordered it from Canada and had it shipped to the border without problems. Thank you for saving me a lot of money.


My Blue Ox Tow Bar arrived faster than I expected. It fit the existing mounting brackets on my Jeep Wrangler perfectly. If my oil pump drive gear fails again, it will be easy for someone to tow me home. Now my wife won't worry so much when I'm hunting in the Wyoming mountains.


This is a great budget towbar. It was even easier than I expected to hook up to the car and connect to my motorcoach. I am towing a 2015 Honda Fit and I was able to easily pull my car around by hand after hooking it up to this towbar.


Previous review, saying 6 - 8 hours installation, was for the tow bracket that I purchased with this tow bar. It took only a few minutes for this tow bar.


I have given this product 4 stars because I have not yet used it. However, upon inspection, I found it to be well made and sturdy. I am currently having the tow brackets and cross bar professionally installed.


Great towbar! Easy on and off the tow vehicle. No problems


etrailer has always provided excellent service. Communication is outstanding!


Strong well made tow bar, easy to use.

Works very well very happy with its performance.
Mike M - 08/27/2017


Fit well, excellent & durable construction. has served me well, and will be utilized again this coming summer in our travels towing my little Suzuki behind my motor home.


The perfect tow bar for my needs! Thank goodness for Katie at, I'd be lost without her help and advice. A great business with great products and great service.

  • Recommended Hitch Ball Tow Bar For 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Blue Ox Base Plates
    Unfortunately there is no adapter that will work with the shank on your Alpha tow bar that would attach to a ball on the rear of the moving truck. I called my contact at Blue Ox and they told me there is no way to convert the Alpha to be able to tow with a hitch ball. My best recommendation is to use a tow bar that can be used with a ball and your base plates. I recommend the Blue Ox Adventurer, part # BX7322. This is not terribly expensive and will work with the base plates you have....

  • Can Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar # BX7322 Be Used With Base Plate Kit # BX1976 on 2009 Jeep Liberty
    The Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, part # BX7322, will work with Blue Ox base plate kits that have a bracket distance between 16-34 inches. The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1976, that you referenced for your 2009 Jeep Liberty has a distance of 22 inches between the brackets, and uses removable tabs, so it should work well for you. You will not need an adapter. I am including a link to a FAQ page on Blue Ox base plates.

  • What Is the Gap Between the Two Tabs On the Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit
    The Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit part # BX88230 is designed to be used with Blue Ox Tow Bars like the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar part # BX7322 which has lugs that are about 5/8" thick. Therefore, the distance between the two tabs is 5/8". That said, we do have adapters that will allow you to use other tow bars as well so if you let me know what you have I can see if we have an adapter for this.

    A car-mount tow bar like the Blue Ox Adventurer # BX7322 is not vehicle specific but its fit will depend on using compatible base plates or adding adapters if the base plates are from a different manufacturer.

    The first thing I recommend is to contact the dealership and make sure that the dune buggy can be flat-towed. With a custom frame and body I am not certain there are base plates or adapters available for your dune buggy. The universal base plate bracket kit we offer is part # BX88230, and it is designed to attach to a vehicle bumper. As the instructions state, most bumpers need to be modified to be able to use this system. If you find you can use the # BX88230 kit, I recommend a tow...
