Sturdy, Built-to-Last Tow Bar

The heavy-duty etrailer XHD tow bar is tough and built to last. Sturdy, modular steel construction offers increased weight capacity and strength to pull up to 10,500 lbs. The XHD is perfect for towing a full-size truck or SUV. Two hitch pin holes allow you to position the tow bar closer to or further from your RV, without sacrificing load capacity.


The black powder coat finish protects against the elements and flying road debris. And stainless steel inner arms provide additional durability and allow for smooth operation. Quality-engineered pivot points and hardware ensure both strength and maneuverability.


Fast, Easy Hookup

With independent, easy-to-maneuver arms, the XHD makes connecting your towed vehicle to your motorhome a breeze. Unlike most tow bar arms that move together along a single plane, the XHD 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.


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.


Base Plate Connection

In order to be compatible with Blue Ox base plates, sturdy adapter brackets are included for compatibility with the ends of each tow bar arm. These clevis-style ends attach to the base plates using the included hardware and provide a tight, stable connection for a safer and more dependable towing experience.


Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

The built-in trigger releases make it easy to disconnect the XHD. 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

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.


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

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.


For added protection, slip on a tow bar cover (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.

Very good tow bar. Had a Blue OX before this one and I like this one better.




by:

Tow bar is operating flawless. I love the ease to store, no more need for drop down hitch, and disconnecting from Toad is very easy. Have not had a bind. Can not beat the quality for the price.




by:

Very much like the Etrailer XHD tow bar. Works great.




by:

This hitch was very very hard to figure out without any instructions whatsoever you have to watch a lot of [online] movies and take ever you have one out of 10 [online] movies is worth getting after one year I have figured out how to use the hitch properly to make it a non-binding hitch other than that the first year it was a pain in the rear hook and unhook so take a while to get used to it and a trailer didn't help me a bit with how to get used to it




by:

Everything has its place. folds nicely and can be covered when not in use. Easy to hook up.




by:

Great product and service




by:

Everything was great received order quickly thanks




by:

Recently purchased the e67ZR tow bars for Blue Ox base plate. The tow bars are are made by Demco but labeled etrailer which didn't bother me at all as I have purchased etrailer branded items before and have always been happy with them . The bars came two weeks early but had a safety cable that was damaged in transit that etrailer replaced immediately. The customer service by Dawn was exceptional and the product exactly what I wanted at a savings of over $xx.xx from the identical Demco labeled bars. The product is great, the service exceptional but watch the prices as they change daily which is the only reason I did not rate it 5 stars.




by:

Exactly what I expected as I am a repeat customer!!

Just as described

Review from a similar XHD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


It’s tough, reliable, quick to connect- only 3 issues:
1. Because it’s tough, VERY heavy, awkward to install and uninstall, much less store…if there was a way to more easily collapse, break it down into more easily compact size…
2. Safety cables sometimes bind and easily corrode, and the spring loaded snaps at the ends are unusually and annoyingly hard to open… And on more than a few occasions snapped causing much pain to one’s fingers and thumbs
3. There is a frequent clicking sound as though the hitch has suddenly shifted slightly (1/2-1”?) somehow when rounding a corner or merely driving along. This despite all connections double checked for proper hookups.

Review from a similar XHD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


The tow bar works well. I am not a fan of the way it stows. The Blue Ox tow bars swing to one side or even stand up so they can be covered, but this one has one arm sticking out each direction and is harder to cover.

Review from a similar XHD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


It is so convenient to have the safety cables and wiring plug attached to the towbar. I have had no problems getting hooked up or unhooked. Very pleased with this towbar.

Review from a similar XHD Non-Binding in Tow Bar


The eTrailer HXD tow bar is an excellent choice! I generally spend less than 5 mins hooking up or unhooking from my 2020 Ram Rebel with baseplates installed. Highly recommend this setup for flat towing.

  • Is the etrailer # e67ZR Tow Bar the Same As the Demco Excali-Bar III?
    Yes, the etrailer # e67ZR tow bar is made for etrailer by Demco in the USA and has a lifetime limited warranty by etrailer. Demco parts will work on this tow bar, but Demco has no responsibility for warranty, repair, or service - you would need to go through etrailer for that.

    I took a look at the maintenance instructions for the etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates item # e67ZR. There are no parts that have to be annually replaced.
