  • Streamlined design creates supremely clean look
    • No obtrusive quick-disconnect crossbar
    • Hidden brackets sit even farther back than standard brackets
  • Drawbars attach and remove quickly and easily
    • Arms click to lock in place in brackets
    • Built-in pull rings let you unlock arms so you can twist and remove them
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength

  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • Compatible with Roadmaster motor-home-mounted tow bars only
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


Note: Roadmaster direct-connect base plates will only work with Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch, such as the Sterling, Blackhawk, Blackhawk 2, Falcon, or Falcon 2. These base plates will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball.


The drawbars, or front arms, on this base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove each arm, simply tug the built-in pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the arm back and pull it out of the bracket. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

I purchased the base plate RM-524444-5 for the roadmaster tow bar. The installation was easy as well as the instructions,easy to follow. I also purchased the HM-56011 Hopkins custom tail light kit. The description on your website should also indicate LED tail light. My vehicle 2017 Ford edge sel with the Led lights,your website gave only the sport and titanium, I had to do a lot of research to find out this kit was for the LED,s. Thanks great product.

Brackets were shipped fast. Received an email due to the fact My shipping address was different than billing address. Which is fine with me . Called them and 2 days later i got the brackets. The box they were shipped in was damaged by ups. Haven't opened it yet expect no damage. i like the fact its easy to talk with real live people.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


etrailer.com site was easy to use and place my order, plus it arrived on time.
The base plate fits perfectly on my 2021 Nissan Versa. I had the Road Master Falcon 2 set up on my motor home towing a 1999 Toyota Solara and it was time to get a new Toad. After a lot of searching we settled on the Versa and I will say that the base plate fits perfectly and looks great with and W/O the "ready to tow" set-up installed. I would recommend Road Master to anyone looking for a cost effective 4 wheel down set-up.


Comments
Still working great. The only thing I wish I could get is “plugs or covers” that go in the holes on the “baseplate” that are exposed after you remove the tow setup components.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Installers beware! I had a very difficult time with this base plate kit because of a mid-2022 redesign by Roadmaster that makes it very challenging to install.

Roadmaster added a tang on top of each base plate to supply additional bracing of the unit against the bumper core. It requires installing two additional bolts and spacers on the upper mount in an area where there isn't easy access due to bracing. This has not been reflected in the picture of the part on etrailer nor is it included in any of the installation videos. The Roadmaster instruction text says to remove the existing bolts from the bumper horn and then reinstall them but with the needed spacers and the set-back of the upper mounts on the redesigned base plate the bolts aren't long enough. I guess to compensate RM supplied two new bolts as seen in the drawing. The problem is, the supplied bolts aren't the correct thread pitch. The RM supplied bolts are metric 1.5 but the welded nut on the Cherokee is 1.25 thread pitch thus requiring a trip to the hardware store to get the proper bolts. Then, when trying to install them you don't have clear access due to bracing. You're trying to hold a spacer in place, using an extension with a universal joint and the socket to get the bolt started. To make matters worse, the upper mount bolt holes on one of the base plates didn't align with the jeep because the tang wasn't at the right height. I had to use a crow bar and a lot of effort to slightly bend up the heavy steel tang to get it to mate up. To top it all off one of the arms was locked in the receiver and wouldn't budge. I had to resort to using a breaker bar inserted in the arm end and a mallet to slowly get the arm to even rotate in the receiver. After much effort I eventually got it to rotate as it should in the receiver and then managed to extract it. When I got it out it was badly scored from the rough welding detritus way down in the receiving tube (see photo attached). I used a file to clear the tube and now it works properly but you have to ask where was the quality control when this arm was inserted in the receiver tube? It had to be obvious that it wasn't going in properly.
All in all I was extremely disappointed with the amount of effort and time I had to put into what should have been a straightforward installation. The redesign makes the job take at least twice as long as it should have.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


It was great that there was a video for my specific application, and I watched it several times. The kit also came with detailed step by step instructions that followed the video and those were helpful during the installation. The instructions and video covered each step, so the installation was straightforward by simply following them. Removing and then reattaching the nose piece would be easier with 2 people. I had to do this alone so for me the reattaching of the nose piece was the most difficult part. The photos I included are the finished product and I think it looks very clean and blends right in with the front grill, without the arms of course. I travelled over 2000 miles and it worked great.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


This particular base plate requires drilling 2 holes in the bumper and expanding 2 holes already there. Expanding the holes was not that much of a problem but the 2 new holes was a major pain. Had to go through 6 different drill bits. I would get the other base plate that only requires expanding 2 holes. But once I got those holes drilled out it went better. Plus one of the shims was a little long and had to grind it down to fit.

Installed the baseplate myself. Just followed the directions and it went well. Have used it for about 4000 miles. Easy to connect to the tow bar. Great produce.


Comments
I installed the product myself two years ago. Installation instructions were detailed and easy to follow. I have towed the car approximately 8000 miles over the past two years and it has been solid to use and easy to connect to each time.

Regards base plate installation 2021 mini cooper
I like to thank you for all your help, everyone at etrailer was very helpful. The quality of the part are excellent and the instructions are right on. One important task before starting is to check all the hardware included in the Kit, on mine was one 1 “ pipe spicer missing which I only noticed during the installation and lost some time with this. One other suggestion in regards to the horn installation mounting it directly to the support bracket will bend the connection clip. I made a little bracket to create more space. Everything else went very smooth. Great product and service.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Everything installed perfectly and the instructions where clear. I didn't care for the instruction to cut up the metal rock guard for the crossbar, but otherwise am pleased with the installation result.

We have since travelled 1,200 miles with this set up connected to a Nighthawk tow bar, and are 100% happy with the performance, and are especially pleased with the ease of connection and disconnection.

Installation was very simple. Instructions were easy enough to follow. I have an aftermarket Quadratic bumper and they look great. I had to do a little of my own measuring to cut the steel. But easy to install.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Was delivered quickly and I was able to install the baseplate assembly relatively easily after having watched a few of the etrailer videos. I did watch multiple different videos as my 2022 Grand Cherokee WK had slight variations from the videos. I did not have previous experience doing this type of automotive work so I will admit to some trepidation along the way but all ended perfectly. My wife was not too happy about me taking the bumper off of her new car with just 100 miles on it but she has regrouped. The only thing I used the written instructions for was to get the parts all organized and to get the correct torque for the bolts

I bought and self installed this on my 2021 GMC Sierra Duramax 1 year ago. Install took about 5 hours and wasn't difficult...I could problty install it in 2-3 hours after leaening the tricks. Weve towed the truck all over the USA since then (over 10,0000 miles) and it works great! I've used other brands and highly recommend Roadmaster tow systems over the competition.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


I have a 2019 GMC Denali and this product from Roadmaster is fantastic. Installation was easy with out having to remove the grill or valance or bumper. There was no trimming on the Plastic. The baseplate installed from the rear with a little push and nudge. there was one bolt just a tad long but this was fixed with a washer. If this is your model of vehicle and you don't want to trash the front get this base plate.

Instructions were great however the passenger side required that I spend some time widening some holes as they didn't line up. I read another buyer had the same issue. Thankfully I was able to make it work. I also have a block heater which apparently isn't supported but I made it work.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


Roadmaster system is top notch. Installation was not bad. Getting bumper to line up with holes in new bracket was difficult, due to very tight tolerance. We have towed 4 down over 4,000 miles with this set up, no issues at all. Towing 4 down is the only way to go!!

Have enjoyed the Roadmaster base plate on my Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van. The only complaint I had was what was required to install it. I have installed several in different vehicles and this one was the most difficult. Some are easier than others, but once installed, it performs as expected.

I received the base plate before the new car it will go on has been delivered so at this point I cannot comment on the quality. I can say that I was very pleased with etrailer. Their service is excellent, prices are good, and shipping is fast. I have ordered from them in the past and will do so again.

Review from a similar EZ5 Base Plate in Base Plates


I purchased this baseplate system for a 2014 Ford Focus. Just finished installing it. Excellent instructions and online video. Make sure you watch it and follow the paper instructions. Let me inform anyone attempting this on your own it is a process. You need to remove the entire front fascia and headlights. The undercarriage plastic air dams also have to come off. This is not difficult if you are a decent mechanic/collision person. If you plan on tackling this yourself allow 3-5 hours if you are a capable individual. If not, take it to a shop you trust. I personally have a shop and all the jacks and tools required. It took me approximately 4-1/2 hours start to finish. But I had a/c, lights, music and my dog kReaping me company. The most frustrating part was drilling the two access hole in the frame. Not sure what that metal alloy is but a dulled my drills and ruined a perfectly good high end hole saw. I ended up using a pnuematic cut off Grinder.
I am very satisfied with the end result. Take your time. Don’t let yourself get aggravated and the install should go smooth. Save a bunch installing it yourself. Good Luck. Thanks RoadMaster and etrailer.
