Built-in LED Light Strips

Integrated LEDs

This sleek and simple all-terrain tow bar has integrated LED lights that turn on and off with your RV's tail lights. Not only do these amber lights make the tow bar stand out, but they also illuminate the area between your RV and your towed vehicle to make it more visible as you travel at night. These lights also make it easy to hook up and disconnect your towed vehicle in the dark. No extra steps are needed to power on the lights. Simply plug the included power cord into your RV's 7-way plug as you normally would, and the lights will turn on when you turn on your RV's tail lights.


Superior Design for Sturdy, Lightweight Tow Bar

Unique Eggshell Design

The unique, eggshell design of the Nighthawk distributes stress evenly throughout its aluminum body, resulting in a lightweight yet durable tow bar. Critical points are made even stronger to allow for an 8,000-lb capacity. For example, the shank portion that slides into the hitch is constructed of steel to ensure that the tow bar can handle stress at this point. Stainless steel inner arms provide even more durability and strength.


Fast, Easy Hookup

The Nighthawk tow bar has a larger hookup radius than previous models to ensure simple, secure hookup. What this means is that, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV, you will still be able to make the necessary connections. To achieve this, the Nighthawk has stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently. In addition, these arms are able to pivot in and out, changing the spread. So, if your car is angled a bit behind your RV, you'll still be able to hook up by bringing the arms closer together and staggering the length so that 1 arm is longer than the other, allowing it to reach the more distant base plate.


The fact that the arms are extra-long also allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motor home and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motor home without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.


No Quick Disconnect Bar

Designed specifically for use with Roadmaster EZ5, MX, and MS base plates, this tow bar connects directly to your base plates without the need for a bulky, quick-disconnect crossbar. Simply place the lugs inside of the base plate brackets, and insert the included pins to secure them in place.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Freedom Latch

The Freedom Latch makes disconnecting this tow bar a breeze. This latch makes it easy to release the tension that can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed car are not perfectly lined up. Just flip the latch to release the pressure, and the arms will be able to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates. This allows you to disconnect even when you're at a hard angle or out of level.


Built-In Cable Guides

Tow Bar Cord Channels

The coiled ends of the included power cord and safety cables easily extend to your RV without dragging on the road. But coiled cords and cables can get easily tangled, creating a hassle and a potential hazard.


Power Cord and Safety Cables

This is why the Nighthawk's power cord and safety cables are straight on the ends that run through the tow bar and connect to your towed vehicle. This way the cables can easily be run through the Nighthawk's integrated routing channels to keep them from getting tangled. These convenient cable guides also keep the cords up and out of the way to create an attractive, streamlined appearance for your towing setup.


Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Nighthawk tow bar has been subjected to rigorous physical and computerized testing to ensure that it meets Roadmaster's exceptionally high standards. Throughout the design process, Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) is done. Each of these tests display a 3-dimensional image of the tow bar while it is put under thousands of pounds of pressure. Areas of stress in the tow bar can then be located and studied so that those areas can be strengthened. This process is repeated until any weak spots, particularly those found in load-bearing components, are completely removed. The result is a durable, strong, and safe product.


Simple, Secure Storage

The Nighthawk can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when it's not in use.


Secure Storage

After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Fold the tow bar up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically lock it in place.


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.


FlatTowing Components

The tow bar links your towed car to your motor home. 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 motor home in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motor home'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 motor home are activated, preventing wear on the motor home and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

When I called etrailer with my concerns about purchasing a tow bar to flat tow my Grand Cherokee. I did not have a brand in mind other that what I read about in magazines. I was helped in making a decision on purchasing a RoadMaster tow bar along with all the electrical wiring needed to do the job. Everything came as described and was told if I had any problems what so ever to call for help. None needed but was good to hear knowing i had back up. I have used this tow bar and hook ups for around 10 or so camping trips. Mostly from Maryland to Myrtle Beach SC. No problems what so ever. I highly recommend etrailer and the RoadMaster lighted tow bar, wiring and bracket for my Car.

This is a very easy bar to install and remove. This is the first bar I have owned. I looked at several and talked to owners of other makes. The feed back was such that the nighthawk was my preferred choice. Didn't take long for me to realize I made the right choice. The complements I received From the folks that watched while I Hooked up were proof that your product is superior in many ways.

Awesome! So easy to attach to both the MH and tow vehicle.

Install on a 2020 Ford Ranger. The product was excellent. The only problem I had was trying to remove the nuts holding the front bumper on. Ford has these bolts embedded in a hard plastic frame that spaces the three bolts on each side. In trying to remove the nuts I got them started then they would neither come on off nor reinstall. The nuts were spinning the bolts. After thinking about the fix I was in I decided to cut the factory bolts off and replace them with 1/2" x 1 1/2" bolts with fender washers. I tried a sawsall with a metal cutting blade and the bolts ate the teeth right off. I put on a Milwaukee thick metal cutting carbide tooth blade and that did the trick. Other than that, which is Ford's fault, everything went as the etrailer videos showed. If you are doing this make sure to spray the exposed bolt threads with WD-40 or something like before you try to remove the nuts.

Purchased to tow my Jeep behind my Motorhome. Since I am a solo traveler, a great benefit is that this was super easy to connect and disconnect. Lights up fantastic. One dislike is that I wish there was a cleaner way to stow the cords after disconnect of it all. May need to figure out a way to wrap and lock it up securely to the hitch/bumper of my motorhome so that I don't need to remove it every time I camp.

I went the whole Roadmaster way. Nighthawk tow bar and base with the Invisbrake controller for our 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth. It tows the Abarth so well that we can't tell it's behind our Thor Compass 23TE. The Invisbrake works great too!

Great product. Highly recommended. We are using this tow bar on a 2008 Chevy Tahoe. We love the side LED lights as well. All the cables are heavy duty and have not shown any signs of wear or tear after 1 year of use. Caution: make sure you check your package contents when you receive the tow bar. It was not packaged too well; there was no padding in the box, so the plastic wiring harness 7 pin socket got crushed during shipping.

Great towbar. This is my third Roadmaster towbar over the past 25+ years of RV'ing and towing Jeeps, all have been nice products. I have used this Roadmaster Nighthawk for the past year with approx. 6k miles towing our 2011 JKUR behind our 2003 Monaco Dynasty and so far I am very pleased with the purchase and product.

Only complaint I have was when checking it said it was in stock. They did reach out and informed me when it would be in stock and as soon as they got one it would ship. They must have gotten some early so I did receive it in a very timely matter and before they thought they would receive new stock. Would like to give a shout out to customer service by far excellent. Gave 4 stars only because it actually checked marked that product was in stock. When I returned later it wasn’t. Maybe a computer error, or somebody beat me to the last one. I would definitely recommend them for your towing needs.

    I do recommend consulting your vehicle's owners manual to confirm that the specific features on your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee allow for flat towing; I have seen some notes that certain trim packages and transfer cases do not allow the vehicle to be flat towed without damaging it. With that said, we can help you find all of the parts you need to flat tow your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee; a complete flat towing setup consists of base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, supplemental...

  • Can a 2020 Jeep Wrangler with SmittyBilt XRC Bumper be Flat Towed
    Yes, you can flat tow your 2020 Jeep Wrangler with the SmittyBilt XRC front bumper. For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. I recommend using the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights # RM-676 along with the adapter # RM-035 for 3/4" thick or # RM-035-1 for 1" thick D-Ring bumper mounts.

  • 2017 Wrangler Unlimited 75 Ann Edition Toad for 2016 Dynamax Grand Sport with 7 Pole Round Connector
    I have a solution for you that will still allow you to use the Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-676 . Because your Dynamax Grand Sport has this 7 pole round connector, you're going to have to do some wiring work; there isn't a tow bar available that will have a matching 7 pole connector required to connect directly to your RV. Below you will find a list of parts that you'll need and then below that I will quickly explain how they're all going to work together. I'm also attaching a couple of photos...
