Blue Ox Tow Bar Features

  • 3 Lugs on the end of each tow bar arm intertwine with 2 lugs of base plate brackets
    • Place 1/2" keeper pin through all 5 lugs and secure with quick pin
    • Replace pins with 1/2" receiver locks for added security
  • Result is a strong, reinforced connection between tow bar and base plates

Self-Aligning Arms with Non-Binding Release Latches

  • Drive RV forward after hooking up and arms automatically extend and lock in place
  • Press down handle until internal latch disengages
    • Static pressure and tension are released so that arms can flex enough to be unhooked, even when tow bar is out of line
Blue Ox Tow Bar Swivel Component

3-Axis Swivel

  • Easy hookup, even on unlevel terrain
  • Allows for arms to turn and pivot enough to compensate for slight height difference
Blue Ox Tow Bar Protective Rubber Coat

Protective, Rubber Boots

  • Slip on over tow bar arms to protect them from dirt and grime
    • Telescoping arms often get impacted with debris following use
    • Debris can damage telescoping arms and keep them from functioning at their best
  • Compress and extend along with tow bar arm thanks to accordian-like stucture
Blue Ox Tow Bar Stored Against Vehicle

Convenient Storage

Many Blue Ox tow bars fold up next to your vehicle for simple, secure storage.RV-Mounted tow bars store alongside motor home:
  • Disconnect tow bar from dinghy
  • Bring tow bar arms together so they are side by side
  • Fold arms up toward RV
  • Insert the integrated hold-up bolt into place on the hitch connector
  • Pivot arms down so that tow bar is parallel to bumper
Car-mounted tow bars store on the front of dinghy:
  • Uncouple tow bar from RV
  • Disconnect one arm from base plate on dinghy
  • Swing disconnected arm over so both arms are side by side
  • Line up the folded tow bar with the front of your dinghy
  • Secure tow bar to base plate bracket by pinning it through the holding bracket beneath the tow bar's coupler
Blue Ox Tow Bar
ConstructionAll Blue Ox tow bars are constructed of heavy-duty steel. The result is a sturdy, durable tow bar that will last. Blue Ox makes tow bars so strong, in fact, that they are able to tow vehicles that weigh up to 20,000 lbs (the Trion only).

Base Plate Combatibility

Because Blue Ox base plates are custom designed, the spacing of the brackets will not always be the same from vehicle to vehicle. Some Blue Ox tow bars have limitations on how wide or narrow their arms can spread. As a result, certain tow bars may not work with some base plates on some vehicles. The following table shows the range of distance between base plate brackets that each BLue Ox tow bar can fit. Be sure to check the base plates that are designed for your vehicle to determine their spacing. If the base plate kit and tow bar are not compatible, you may be able to use an adapter to achieve a functional towing system.
Tow Bar Required Distance b/w Brackets
Avail38" or less
Acclaim23" or more
Adventurer 16" - 34"
