Sturdy, Built-to-Last Aluminum Tow Bar

Dominator Tow Bar

The Dominator - the lightest weight tow bar in Demco's Victory Series - is tough and built to last. Lightweight aluminum with durable steel components integrated throughout offers the strength you need to pull up to 7,500 lbs. And durable, anodized aluminum inner arms keep the weight of the tow bar down and allow for smooth operation. Quality-engineered pivot points and hardware ensure both strength and maneuverability. Two hitch pin holes allow you to position the tow bar closer to or further from your RV, without sacrificing load capacity.

The aluminum arms are naturally rust and corrosion resistant, and the anodized finish protects against the elements and flying road debris.

Dominator Tow Bar

Fast, Easy Hookup

Dominator Independent Arms

With independent, easy-to-maneuver arms, the Dominator makes connecting your towed vehicle to your motorhome a breeze. Unlike most tow bar arms that move together along a single plane, the Dominator tow bar arms operate completely separately from one another. A vertical bolt through the head of the tow bar keeps the arms positioned one on top of the other, allowing for a more fluid hookup. The arms pivot horizontally on this bolt, allowing for an unlimited spread so that you can hook up to base plates with almost any spacing. A built-in joint at the base of each arm allows for vertical movement so that you don't have to tilt the entire head when positioning the arms.

Dominator on GMC

The arms telescope for easy extension to your base plate connection points, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV. The self-supporting design of the arms also allows you to telescope one arm out and attach it to the base plate without having to worry about supporting the opposite arm at the same time. The arms lock into place when you're ready to tow, and the extra length of the arms allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motorhome and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motorhome without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.

Triple-Lug Connection

In order to be compatible with Blue Ox base plates, sturdy brackets are included for installation on the ends of each tow bar arm. These brackets attach to the base plates using 2 easy-to-access pins and provide a tight, stable connection for a safer and more dependable towing experience.

Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Dominator Non-Binding Design

The built-in trigger releases make it easy to disconnect the Dominator. Tension can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed vehicle are not perfectly aligned. Engaging the trigger on each arm releases pressure and allows the arms to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates, even if you are at a hard angle or out of level.

Each trigger release latch is positioned on the side of the tow bar arm. This allows for a comfortable yet firm grip, unlike latches that are positioned on the tops of tow bar arms, which can be difficult to grab. This out-of-the-way placement of the latches also creates a clean look for the tow bar.

Straight, Vinyl-Coated Safety Cables Included

Dominator Vinyl Safety Cables

Two straight, vinyl-coated safety cables provide added protection should the tow bar ever disconnect during towing. The cables are held off the ground by the included mounting clips. These clips keep the cables from dragging on the ground, preventing damage and tangling. Steel S-hooks with spring-loaded latches connect each cable to your towed vehicle's base plates and to your motorhome's trailer hitch.

Dominator Storage Rod for Cables

The tow bar also offers a convenient storage rod for securing your coiled electrical cord (sold separately). The rod holds your power cord neatly out of the way and up off the ground.

Versatile, Secure Storage

Dominator Bar Storage

Independent arm movement also allows for storage versatility. Easily store the tow bar out of the way, alongside your RV. The arms can be folded up to the right or to the left, or you can fold one arm to each side so that they are parallel to your motorhome's bumper. Just pivot each arm into position and a peg at the base of the arm will snap into a built-in tab, latching the arm in place so that you don't have to worry about it coming unfolded during travel.

Dominator Arms Store to Left or Right

For added protection, slip on the Demco tow bar cover (DM9523042 - sold separately) while the tow bar is folded up either to the left or the right against your RV.

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.

Sometimes difficult to unlock. Binds sometimes. Always same side.

This is an excellent product, but not my first time owning it as I have had the product since the 90s. My biggest problem was with the shipping. It was in a part of the warehouse rarely accessed and with the shortage of labor, I had to wait several weeks and was not home when it arrived.

Great product, very well thought out and engineered. Alas, my motorhom

Review from a similar Dominator in Tow Bar

This tow bar is incredibly easy to use and our Grand Cherokee tracks very well even up to 70+ MPH. We are towing with our new Dynamax and are looking forward to our first long drive to Texas in December. Would highly recommend to anyone!!

We are still very happy our Demco tow bar and base plate. We have made several trips now and have not had any problems. I get lots of questions from other campers about our tow package and have only great things to say.

Review from a similar Dominator in Tow Bar

One year later and I'm loving this tow bar. The base plate install on my 2019 Jeep went perfectly without any grinding or cutting. I really liked the fact it fit inside the shroud preserving my ground clearance. The tow bar is very simple to install/adjust and maintain. Hookups are easy even on unlevel surfaces. I've towed about 11,000 miles so far. One time, I made a mistake which damaged one of the tow arms. All I can say is the level of service I received from Demco was awesome. They went out of their way to ship parts to me at my campsite and talked me through the repair. I would buy again and you should buy one too!!

Review from a similar Dominator in Tow Bar

For my 97 4RUNNER behind my 2012 Thor Astoria. 4RUNNER 3,600 lbs. +/- . Could have gone with the 5,000 pound, but went with the 7,500 pound model. It's really beefy and easy to attach and performs well. I'd buy it again. I have completely set up the 4runner through etrailer and have been pleased with their help and quick delivery. Karl

Ask the Experts about this Demco Tow Bar

  • Is Latch System for Blue Ox Alpha and Alpha 2 Tow Bars Different
    The Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 on our site is the original Alpha tow bar just like what you have which is why the latching system doesn't look any different. I reached out to Blue Ox and my contact said that the newer Alpha tow bar (currently not available on their site either as of November 2019) uses a latching system similar to the Avail Tow Bar # BX7420 so there is a significant difference in the design. I have attached pictures of both latch styles for your reference. If you are...

  • Lightweight Tow Bar with Blue Ox Base Plates
    The Blue Ox Avail tow bar, part # BX7420, weighs 45 pounds. If you're looking for a lightweight tow bar the Nighthawk All Terrain, part # RM-677, from Roadmaster is about 35 pounds and fits with Blue Ox base plates. Its capacity is only 8,000 pounds though. One more even lighter option is the Demco Dominator, part # DM9511008-BX. It's only 30 pounds but is only rated for 7,500 pounds. It does connect to Blue Ox base plates as well though.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Ford Mustang with Automatic Transmission
    If your 2007 Ford Mustang is an automatic then you would need to use a drive shaft coupling (disconnect) to flat tow it.
