Easy Hookup with Self-Aligning Arms

Blue Ox Trion Self-Aligning Arms

The Trion's convenient, self-centering arms help to make hookup a snap. Older and more economical tow bars have rigid arms that are essentially locked in place so you have to drive your towed vehicle into the exact position necessary for hookup. But with the Trion, you can connect from the approximate towing position quickly and easily. Once you have connected the tow bar to both your vehicle's base plates and your tow vehicle's pintle coupler, simply drive your rig forward until the tow bar arms fully extend and lock in place. Before hitting the road, be sure to check that the arms are properly latched to avoid damage to your towing setup.

Sturdy, Dependable Triple-Lug Connection

Blue Ox Trion Triple-Lug Connection

The Blue Ox base plates on your vehicle are equipped with two tabs each that connect to the brackets on the ends of these tow bar arms. The triple-lug design of the Trion tow bar creates a tight, stable connection by surrounding both base plate lugs. The result is a sturdy, reinforced connection that is strong and rigid for a safe, dependable towing experience.

Hooking up the Trion to your base plates is as simple as it is secure. Just line up the triple-lug end of the tow bar arm with the base plate so that the center lug is positioned between the two tabs of the base plate. Then insert the 1/2" keeper pin through all of the lugs and secure it with the included quick pin.

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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (4 Customer Reviews)

Ideal for heavy-duty construction, agricultural, and utility vehicles, this steel tow bar lets you tow heavy vehicles with your truck, semi, or dump truck that has a pintle hitch. Swivel function makes it easy to connect on uneven ground.


The tow bar that I purchased has so far been great. I own a concrete mixer truck and I work it in different towns all over the country and in order to bring the Mixer truck and the pick up truck it requires my blue ox tow bar. In 2017 I towed my 2013 ram 2500 behind my 1998 peterbilt Mixer truck from Los Angeles to Las Vegas then from Las Vegas to durango co. Then to Blythe ca. Where my current job is. So it's done me well all year


Overall good product but once the arms are locked out, all you can do if free them to move a little. You cannot retract them and I guess that is due to the 20,000 tow capacity.

If you line up the vehicle to tow by yourself, this can take some time to get it right so you can get the Pindle ring and tow bars hooked to the vehicles.


Awesome service. Bent my first hitch up and had to order parts. They called said the parts were 2 weeks out, so I just ordered a new one.

  • Tow Bar With Capacity Above 10,000 lbs
    There is one tow bar rated above 10,000 lbs and it is the Blue Ox Trion Tow Bar - Lunette Ring - A-Frame - Car Mount - 20,000 lbs # BX7520P. There is not currently another option between 10,000 lbs and the 20,000 lbs lunette ring tow bar.

  • Tow Bar Availability with 20k Capacity
    The only tow bar we offer that has enough capacity for what you are trying to do is the Blue Ox Trion Tow Bar part # BX7520P as it has a 20k capacity. It is a pintle setup though as most hitch setups with that much capacity would have to be pintle.

  • Heavy Duty Tow Bar Availability
    The most heavy duty tow bar we offer is the Blue Ox Trion Tow Bar part # BX7520P which has a 20k capacity and is designed to attach to the tow vehicle with a pintle style hitch. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Pintle Ring Blue Ox Tow Bar
    We have a couple Blue Ox Tow bars that use a pintle ring, one for 10,000 lbs # BX7460P and one for 20,000 lbs # BX7520P but there is currently no way to convert your current bar. You would have to purchase another tow bar to achieve what you want.

  • Recommended Tow Bar for an 8,500 lb 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    A lunette ring tow bar setup is typically used for heavy duty construction or agricultural applications. They are not exactly ideal for daily towing and generally do not provide the most comfortable ride as there is a lot of chucking and jarring associated with a lunette ring towing setup. If you decide to go with a lunette ring tow bar then the Blue Ox Allure Tow Bar part # BX7460P which is rated for 10,000 lbs will work well with your 2017 Ford F-350 that weighs 8,500 lbs. You will not...

  • High Weight Capacity Blue Ox Tow Bar to Use with Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2675 on Ford F-350
    Since the Blue Ox Trion part # BX7520P has an arm width range of up to 32 inches and the distance between the arms of the Blue Ox kit base plate kit part # BX2675 is 34-1/2 inches this tow bar would not work for you but the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 that you also referenced would work so it would be your best option. It has the arm width range needed and has a 10,000 lb capacity like you'd need for your heavier 2017 Ford F-250 as well. I attached a review video link for the Avail for...

  • 20k Rated Tow Bar that Uses Lunette Ring Attachment
    We have one 20k capacity tow bar that uses a lunette ring with the Blue Ox Trion part # BX7520P but the Stowmaster has a 6k capacity and there would be no way to increase it's capacity over three times.

  • Availability of Higher Capacity Blue Ox Tow Bar
    We do carry the Blue Ox Apollo tow bar part # BX7470 which fits the 2-1/2 inch hitch size. We do not have a version that fits a 2 inch hitch. We do however have a higher capacity Blue Ox tow bar with the Trion part # BX7520P but this is designed to fit a pintle hitch like the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS10056 which has a 16k capacity.

  • Replacement Base Plate To Replace Roadmaster 1559-1 Base Plate On 2009 Honda CR-V
    I contacted Roadmaster and the 1559-1 base plate on the 2009 Honda CR-V is obsolete so the arms are no longer in production. I can't really recommend to do any fabrications to attach the older base plate to the Blue Ox Tow bar because of safety reasons and it will void the limited life time warranty of base plate if something were to happen. I recommend to replace the base plate on the Honda with the Blue Ox base plate part # BX2246 which is compatible with the Blue Ox Adventurer, Aladdin,...

    The Blue Ox adapter for off-road bumpers # BX88296 will only fit Blue Ox Alpha, Avail, Allure, Acclaim, and Titan tow bars. It will not work with the Roadmaster tow bars like your Falcon All-Terrain model. You would need to switch to a Blue Ox tow bar. The Alpha, # BX7380, is rated for 6,500 pounds.

  • Tow Bar Wiring For Flat Towing A 2020 Jeep Gladiator
    There are most likely components of the existing tow bar wiring that you can re-use when flat towing the Gladiator but since I am not sure which wiring setup you have I cannot say that you definitely can or cannot. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator does not have a custom plug in harness available for flat towing so if the wiring harness you are referring to is custom it will not fit the Gladiator. If you tell me what harness or wiring kit you are referring to I can tell you which if any parts of...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1996 Ford F-350 7.3 Behind an RV
    Welcome back! There are no confirmed custom base plate fits for the 1996 Ford F-350 trucks so in order to flat tow it you would need to have Blue Ox universal base plates # BX88266 installed. A professional installation is recommended. For a compatible tow bar you can use the Avail # BX7420 if the truck is under 10,000 pounds. If it is over 10,000 pounds the only option is the Trion # BX7520P which has a lunette ring coupler so the hitch it attaches to would have to be a pintle hitch. For...
