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!

  • Recommended Tow Bar and Bumper Mounts for Aftermarket Steel Jeep Bumper with D-Rings
    The Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar for Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates - RV Mount - 2" Hitch - 7,500 lbs # C26FR you referenced does not have an adapter that is confirmed to fit. I think the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars - 1" Thick # RM-035-1 or the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars - 3/4" Thick # RM-035 may fit but we haven't tested this fit to confirm yet.

    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.

  • High-Low Adapter For Curt Rambler Tow Bar
    I've attached our guide for choosing a high/low adapter for your RV Hitch but for your case I recommend the Curt High-Low Adapter # C27KR.

  • 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.

  • Curt Tow Bar And Blue Ox Base Plate Compatibility
    To connect a Curt Tow Bar # C26FR to your Blue Ox Base Plates # BX1143 all you need is an adapter # BX8833. The non-binding feature makes it easier to unhook to tow bar when you're on an uneven surface. Not being level can cause the bars to bind up and not want to come off of the base plates so this feature will definitely make removing the tow bar easier. If you want a one time set up braking system that will stay in the towed vehicle then I recommend # HM39530. If you want a braking...
