Smooth Hookup with Stainless Steel Arms

Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain stainless steel arms

The Falcon All-Terrain is designed to make hooking up your toad (towed vehicle) a smooth and easy process. The telescoping arms are able to extend to the needed length and angle to reach the base plate without the need for your vehicle to be perfectly level or in the exact right spot behind your RV. The inner arms are stainless steel and will slide in and out smoothly. Supremely corrosion resistant, they'll stay rust-free and functional for the life of the tow bar.


Slide the tow bar into your hitch and pin it in place. Get the arms connected to the base plate one at a time. Once you're all hooked up, slowly pull forward and the self-aligning arms will fully extend and lock into the towing position. Double check that the arms are properly latched and you'll be ready to hit the road!


Extra-Long Arms Get You Around Tight Turns

The Falcon's arms are longer than average, giving you an above-average turning radius. You're going to be able to get around obstacles and make sharp turns with no worry of clipping the corner of your RV. Maneuver through gas stations and the campsite no problem.


Non-Binding for Easy Disconnect

Uneven ground and sharp angles can put the arms of the tow bar in a bind and make them stiff and immoveable. Once you get to your destination, the last thing you need is to spend several minutes wrestling, yanking, and kicking at them to get your car disconnected.


Freedom Latch

Instead, get out of a bind in one easy step. Simply flip the lever on the arm of the Falcon to disengage the internal latch. This releases the pent-up pressure so you can unhook and get on with your adventure.


Cable Guides

Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain Cable Guides

The Falcon All-Terrain comes with cable guides built into the arms, which offer a great way to keep your setup organized. By threading your safety cables and power cord (both sold separately) through the guides, you'll keep them from dragging on the ground and getting damaged. It's also a great way to keep all your gear together. You won't need to find a separate place to store your cables; you can keep them right there where you need them, ready for the next time you flat tow.


Engineered for Excellence

FEA test

The Falcon All-Terrain is engineered to be as tough and durable as possible. Throughout the design process, rigorous physical and computerized testing is done, including Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA). Each of these tests displays 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 product that is durable, strong, and safe.


Simple Storage: RV-Mounted Tow Bar

Storing Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain

The Falcon All-Terrain folds up to conveniently store on the back of your RV when you're not using it. After disconnecting the tow bar from your toad, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Push the tow bar up until the holding latch clicks into place. The arms can then swing to the right or to the left, whichever side you want to store it on.


Storing Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain

For added protection from the elements, slip the Roadmaster tow bar cover (RM-055-3 - sold separately) over the Falcon when you're not using it.


What You Need to Flat Tow

Flat towing can be a much more convenient way to take your car RVing with you than using a trailer or a tow dolly. It'll save you storage space both at home and at the campsite, and it takes less time and hassle to hook up.


To flat tow your vehicle, there are 5 basic components you're going to need: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a flat tow braking system.


For the RV Between the RV and Towed Car For the Towed Car
Hitch Tow bar Base plate
Wiring plug Safety cables Braking system
Wiring adapter cord Wiring kit/diodes

The custom-fit base plate installs on the frame of your toad so you can connect the car to your RV with a tow bar. Hook up safety cables between the vehicles to ensure that the toad does not separate from the motorhome if the tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring syncs your vehicle's signal lights with your motorhome's tail lights, as required by law in most states. Finally, the flat tow braking system - also required in most states - activates the brakes in the toad when you hit the brakes in the RV, making for smoother, safer braking, and preventing wear on your motorhome.

Awesome hitch! Fills up easily and nicely. Easy to operate and not terribly heavy to handle if you need to store it.



by:

Having used the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar for over a year to tow a Kia Soul with our class A coach, I have nothing but good things to say about it.
The tow bar is extremely easy to attach to the towed vehicle. Get close and the arms will connect, pull ahead and the arms lock into tow position. The cable management tubes on the side of the arms keep all electrical and safety cables organized and tangle free.
The tow bar quickly folds and stores on the rear of the coach when not in use.
Fit, finish, and construction is excellent. Instructions for set-up, use and maintenance are clear and complete.
The reviews and videos provided by e trailer certainly helped with the decision to go with this particular tow bar, along with their great selection, price, and delivery.
Thanks e trailer!



by:

This tow bar is very easy to install due to its non-binding feature which allows for easy toad hook-up even when the ground is a little uneven. I also like the fact that it can stay attached to the motorhome and simply swing out of the way when not needed. As with all products I have purchased from etrailer, this Roadmaster tow bar is well engineered and of excellent quality.



by:

This towbar has been very disappointing. When it was time for a new towbar, I decided to downgrade from the Sterling to this Falcon, and that was a big mistake. This towbar cannot be described as "non-binding". Unless your tow vehicle is perfectly aligned with the motorhome and level, there is no chance of releasing the latches - they bind and will not release. If I get stuck in a stopped position where the car is misaligned from the coach by more than about 10 degrees, or higher or lower than the hitch by more than a few inches, I have a major project to release the towbar from the car, even sometimes having to use a punch and hammer to forcibly remove the hitch pins. Further, after just a few months of use, one of the release mechanisms quit working altogether, so I my partner has to start the car and jiggle back and forth in order to find a spot where I can remove the hitch pins. Once the towbar is unhooked, I have to use a screwdriver to dig around under the failed release lever in order to push the cam in manually so I can push the outer arm back in.
The guides along the arms for the cables are not useful and dangerous. I initially used straight power and safety cables running through the guides, and they go chewed up in a short period of time. I had to buy new coiled cables that do not run through the guides, and have had no further problem.
As a towbar, this device works fine. But it is NOT non-binding, and I highly recommend upgrading to one of the higher-end towbars. This device is too problematic to recommend, and I would never buy it again.

Installing on 2020 Jeep Trailhawk :



Pic #0557 : Roadmaster Base Plate Kit , Demco Supplemental Braking System , Diode Wiring Kit , Demco Battery Charge Wire Kit



Pic # 0548 ,0551 , 0559 Had to adjust the bracket plate to line up with the upper bolt holes



Pic #6028 finished install , mounted the operating unit to the top fuse box cover using automotive Velcro . Air cylinder , controller and LED light installed . Aside from the base plate bracket not lining up with the upper bolt holes I would give it 4 stars . My son in law is a master at solving mechanical issues .

Overall the tow bar is pretty good. I had no issues towing the 2005 Acura MDX (~4500LB. After driving in the rain the the moving rod become a little sticky. With some cleaning and WD40 it is behaving normal. I don't really feel there is any toad unless I see through the rear view camera. So far no issues. I probably had about 5k miles on this tow bar by now.

This was bought replace a Falcon 2 because of the non-binding feature. I was looking forward to using the wiring and cable channels but there doesn't seem to be a way to get the hooks or plugs through. So instead of having something useful, I just have something that adds weight.

We have towed our Jeep almost 2,000 miles since installing the recommended parts from etrailer and it has worked perfectly on every connect and disconnect along the way. Tows beautifully, even at 70 mph.

Excellent customer service and helpful videos from these folks. Would recommend to anyone needing help with parts and guidance in towing their toad to give them a call.

Our system is still working perfectly a year later. Our Jeep is a 2018 Cherokee Trailhawk and while we’ve seen some RV forums talk about “death wobble”, we have never experienced this using these Roadmaster products towbar & baseplate. We tow the Jeep with our 39’ Class A gasser and hardly know its back there. Even on sharp corners the Jeep follows perfectly and no binding. Connecting or disconnecting takes maybe 5 – 7 minutes. Then check all of our lights, make sure the Jeep is in neutral wbrakes off and we’re on our way. The braking system that we installed purchased from etrailer is the “Stay-n-Play Duo”. I would recommend that to anyone looking for easy operation. The installation time was a bit lengthy and involved but once completed makes all of your towing trips much easier. Just the flip of a switch and the braking system is ready for towing. No portable unit to lug around and adjust each time you tow your vehicle. The etrailer folks made the perfect recommendations for our needs and everything has worked GREAT!



by:

I was a solo older female traveler, towing a Jeep. This towing system was so easy to use. Easy to set up on my Jeep, and to hook up and unhook from my motorhome.



by:

Very happy with my Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar, baseplate and high low hitch. Great service from etrailer, great company! Going on my first trip in a couple weeks! Took about 4 or 5 hours to install. Great instructions, the videos were very helpful!



by:

I was looking into to flat towing our Jeep Cherokee behind our RV. A friend had told me about etrailer. I have to say they do, and did have everything that I needed to make this project happen. The pricing, quality, quickness, and the shape of everything from shipping, was Great!
Here is a picture after I got it was all hooked up.

Thanks again etrailer

Really like this all terrain tow bar. Pulling a 2018 Ford F150 with it. Cross bar is not needed with my base plates. Would be better if bar could be purchased without it. Seems like a big heavy piece to pay for when it isn't needed.



by:

This item is great, saved our Jeep. Had the hitch on with the Jeep and got rear ended. The hitch absorbed most of the hit and the Jeep was relatively unscathed. The hitch was bent like a pretzel but it still held together the Rv and the Jeep. The bar was bent beyond saving so I called Etrailer and they sent me a new one within two days so our vacation was not ruined.
Thanks all and definitely recommend this hitch!!



by:

Love the quick and easy hook up and dis connect!



by:

Excellent tow bar, has held up very well over the last year. Very minor rust, generally surface rust from when we're close to the coast. The non-binding feature has come in handy almost every other time we've used it. Folds up well behind the RV when not in use.



by:

Awesome product made in the USA. Etrailer made sure that everything was correct and fit my vehicle



by:

Thanks to all at etrailer who helped me with my order, you guys are fantastic, the entire operation is stellar.

Enclosed are a couple of pics of my installation after my initial hookup.



by:

Don't buy a roadmaster tow bar. Roadmaster does not honor their lifetime warranty. Used one time and it bent and refused to replace it. had excellent service and experience with etailer and would use them again.



by:

Super Fast Service....Excellent Products....Consistent 5 star service over the last 10 years!! Look forward to using our Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar, Front Base Plate and Draw Tite Rear Receiver. Happy Travels!!



by:

I towed a car behind the RV from New England to California and back with no issues! Easy to hook up the tow vehicle.



by:

This "Non-Binding" tow bar BINDS UP every time I use it.
I have to keep a hammer handy to to get it to release.
I have tried everything I can think of and I still have to hammer out the pins to unhook it.
i would never buy one of these again.



by:

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well.

I researched tow bars thoroughly before choosing the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain. Both Roadmaster and Blue Ox have excellent customer service departments and answered many questions before I decided to go with Roadmaster. The reason is simply my preference to have the extra stability of the cross bar and for future mounting of the Guardian rock shield. The Blue Ox tow bars are simpler because of no crossbar and that is nice and clean. But I like extra assurance and beefiness on the lateral torsion forces when towing. Just my preference.

The Falcon unit is well made and heavy. The channels on the sides allow a neat installation of the wiring harness and safety cables. Pulls my Honda CRV with no noise and easy to hook and unhook. I would recommend this product to anyone.



by:

Very good,strong tow bar. I like the ease of hookup. My only complaint is that sometimes the releases to allow the rods to slide back into the tubes can be finicky, making disconnecting a little more difficult. Have used it many times in the last year and would buy again.



by:

Great towbar,easy to hook up to towed vehicle,unhooking is a snap.you dont have to be perfect to hook up to your tow vehicle.well made.
