We were new to owning a clase and towing a vehicle. And when we read reviews on a number of the other competitors to include blue ox, The curt Tobar did absolutely great. We’ve been towing now for over a year. If I had to say one thing about it that I didn’t like which is kind of nitpicking is that the identification sticker, Curt Tobar started to peel off relatively soon after we had taken it on a number of trips. Of course this did not affect the towing bar at all. But I’m kind of a stickler for things like that. Other Nat always great.



by:

This tow bar is perfect for my Motorhome and vehicle set up. It's a bit expensive, but it is a well made product.

Great products, awesome service

This is a solid Tow Bar! It stood up to towing our Jeep Rubicon Unlimited over rough roads up and down the US Coast. My wife and are full-timers with a 2019 Newmar Ventana and had to choose a replacement for another brand (that cost $[x,xxx]) when it bent after only 1 year of use. You'll want this one!

  • Does Curt Tow Bar C26FR Work With Blue Ox Base Plate BLU74FR
    Yes, the Curt tow bar you asked about is compatible with the BX2418 base plates that fit a 2021 Ram 1500 Classic SLT. The BX2418 is listed as a different part number on our website, so what you will need are the following: - Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BLU74FR - Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar for Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates # C26FR I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.

  • Could Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar Have Capacity for 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic
    The Blue Ox Adventurer tow bar part # BX7332 has a 5,000 lb capacity and the capacity range for a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic is between 4,200 and 5,600 lbs depending on how it's equipped from what I found. The Curt Rambler part # C26FR has a 7,500 lb capacity and fits Blue Ox base plates so it would be an option that would for sure work.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for 2015 Ford Explorer and Curt Rambler Tow Bar
    While the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX2632 lists as fitting Blue Ox manufactured tow bars Adventurer, Aladdin, Allure, Alpha, Avail, Aventa, and Trion tow bars it does not list the Curt Rambler. However, the Curt Rambler Tow Bar, # C26FR, (70001 Curt Rambler) specifically states that it fits Blue Ox Base Plates.

  • Recommended Tow Bar Cover For A Curt Rambler Tow Bar
    Curt is currently in the design phase for their Curt Rambler Tow Bar # C26FR cover bag, having only stated that it should be out some time in 2022. Because the Rambler measures 31" long and 14" wide I recommend the Classic Accessories Tow Bar and Weight Distribution Tote item # CA80113, which measures 36" long, 11" wide, and 8" tall. It will be a tight fit, but will get the job done.

  • 2021 Ford Bronco Tow Bar to Use with Curt Custom Base Plate Kit
    The Blue Ox and Curt tow bars have different arm designs at the end so to use the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit # C59JR with the modular bumper on your 2021 Ford Bronco you need to use the Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar # C26FR. The tab design on the Blue Ox and Curt tow bars can sometimes crossover so that they work with each other's base plate kits but in this case the Curt "base plate kit" is just an adapter that fixes to the tow bar. For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate...

  • Does Curt Base Plate Kit C59JR Attach Directly to Blue Ox Tow Bar
    The 2021 Ford Bronco base plate kit part # C59JR that you referenced attaches only to Curt tow bars like the Rambler # C26FR and cannot attach to Blue Ox base plates.

  • Base Plate Compatible With Curt Rambler Tow Bars And Aftermarket Bumper
    For your 2013 Jeep Wrangler, I recommend the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit # C33FR. This base plate is guaranteed to fit your 2013 Jeep Wrangler, is designed for use with aftermarket bumpers, and is compatible with your Curt Rambler Tow Bar # C26FR.

  • Base Plate Kit that Fits Curt Rambler and 2021 Jeep Gladiator
    The Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar # C26FR that you referenced can only be used with Curt and Blue Ox base plate kits and not the etrailer base plate kits. So your best option would be then the Blue Ox base plate kit # BLU53FR.

  • Will Curt Rambler Tow Bar Work With Blue Ox Base Plates Without An Adapter
    Great News! Traditionally, you would need an adapter to use another brand of tow bar with the Blue Ox base plate on the 2002 Honda Accord however the Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar part # C26FR is designed to work with the Blue Ox Base Plates as well. It also has a non-binding design so you can hook up or unhook on unlevel ground with a latch that releases the tension. It also comes with safety cables.

  • Compatible Tow Bars for Curt Custom Base Plate Kit on 2014 Chevrolet Sonic
    We do have the Blue Ox Acclaim Non-Binding Tow Bar, rated at 5,000 lbs. # BX4330. But this is a coupler-style tow bar. If you are wanting/needing an RV style tow bar, I suggest the Curt Rambler, # C26FR, this 7,500 lb. tow bar will match well to your Curt Custom Base Plate Kit, # C44ZR.

  • Tow Bar Cover for Curt Rambler
    I have a solution for you but the Blue Ox Tow Bar Cover - Acclaim item # BX88156 is only 38 1/2" x 6". The Curt Rambler Tow Bar item # C26FR measures 31" long and 14". I contacted Curt and they do not currently have a tow bar cover available for purchase. I recommend the Classic Accessories Tow Bar and Weight Distribution Tote item # CA80113 it measure 36" long, 11" wide, and 8" tall. It will be a tight fit.

  • Will Curt Rambler Tow Bar Work With Blue Ox Base Plate on 2021 Ford Ranger

So you will not need any type of adapter to use the Rambler tow bar with the Blue Ox base plates that fit your 2021 Ford Ranger, the two will indeed work together seamlessly.

  • Recommended Storage Bag For A Curt Rambler Tow Bar C26FR
    With your Curt Rambler Tow Bar # C26FR measuring 31 inches long and 14 inches wide, it will make things difficult. I contacted Curt to see if they produce a storage bag that is specifically for the # C26FR and they are currently in the design phase, but not currently available. They do not have a specific date for the release yet, but they said it should be some time in 2022. However, if you are in immediate need, we do have another option that is very close to your measurements though....

  • Which Base Plate Kit For 2003 Jeep Wrangler is Compatible With Curt Tow Bar?
    I may have an option for you, but the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # RM-521424-5 is not compatible with any Curt tow bars and there are no adapters to make the connection. The Roadmaster baseplate kits use a different design of attachment that is quite a bit different than the Curt tow bars. If the Curt tow bar you have is the Curt Rambler # C26FR you will be able to use Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Fixed Arms # BX1120 which is confirmed to fit your 2003 Jeep Wrangler.
