Built-in LED Light Strips

Integrated LEDs

This sleek and simple all-terrain tow bar has integrated LED lights that turn on and off with your RV's tail lights. Not only do these amber lights make the tow bar stand out, but they also illuminate the area between your RV and your towed vehicle to make it more visible as you travel at night. These lights also make it easy to hook up and disconnect your towed vehicle in the dark. No extra steps are needed to power on the lights. Simply plug the included power cord into your RV's 7-way plug as you normally would, and the lights will turn on when you turn on your RV's tail lights.

Superior Design for Sturdy, Lightweight Tow Bar

Unique Eggshell Design

The unique, eggshell design of the Nighthawk distributes stress evenly throughout its aluminum body, resulting in a lightweight yet durable tow bar. Critical points are made even stronger to allow for an 8,000-lb capacity. For example, the shank portion that slides into the hitch is constructed of steel to ensure that the tow bar can handle stress at this point. Stainless steel inner arms provide even more durability and strength.

Fast, Easy Hookup

The Nighthawk tow bar has a larger hookup radius than previous models to ensure simple, secure hookup. What this means is that, even if your towed car is not perfectly aligned with your RV, you will still be able to make the necessary connections. To achieve this, the Nighthawk has stainless steel, telescopic inner arms that adjust independently. In addition, these arms are able to pivot in and out, changing the spread. So, if your car is angled a bit behind your RV, you'll still be able to hook up by bringing the arms closer together and staggering the length so that 1 arm is longer than the other, allowing it to reach the more distant base plate.

The fact that the arms are extra-long also allows for a better turning radius. By putting more distance between your motor home and your towed car, your entire setup will become easier to maneuver so that your towed car will track behind your motor home without running the risk of hitting your RV during turns.

No Quick Disconnect Bar

Designed specifically for use with Roadmaster EZ5, MX, and MS base plates, this tow bar connects directly to your base plates without the need for a bulky, quick-disconnect crossbar. Simply place the lugs inside of the base plate brackets, and insert the included pins to secure them in place.

Non-Binding for Simple Disconnect

Freedom Latch

The Freedom Latch makes disconnecting this tow bar a breeze. This latch makes it easy to release the tension that can build up in a telescoping arm when the RV and towed car are not perfectly lined up. Just flip the latch to release the pressure, and the arms will be able to telescope freely, making it easy to disconnect the tow bar from the base plates. This allows you to disconnect even when you're at a hard angle or out of level.

Built-In Cable Guides

Tow Bar Cord Channels

The coiled ends of the included power cord and safety cables easily extend to your RV without dragging on the road. But coiled cords and cables can get easily tangled, creating a hassle and a potential hazard.

Power Cord and Safety Cables

This is why the Nighthawk's power cord and safety cables are straight on the ends that run through the tow bar and connect to your towed vehicle. This way the cables can easily be run through the Nighthawk's integrated routing channels to keep them from getting tangled. These convenient cable guides also keep the cords up and out of the way to create an attractive, streamlined appearance for your towing setup.

Superior Testing Ensures Excellent Quality

FEA test

This Nighthawk tow bar has been subjected to rigorous physical and computerized testing to ensure that it meets Roadmaster's exceptionally high standards. Throughout the design process, Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) is done. Each of these tests display 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 durable, strong, and safe product.

Simple, Secure Storage

The Nighthawk can easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when it's not in use.

Secure Storage

After disconnecting the tow bar from your towed vehicle, push the arms of the tow bar together so that they are side by side. Fold the tow bar up toward the RV and the storage latch will automatically lock it in place.

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.

FlatTowing Components

The tow bar links your towed car to your motor home. 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 motor home in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motor home'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 motor home are activated, preventing wear on the motor home and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

When I called etrailer with my concerns about purchasing a tow bar to flat tow my Grand Cherokee. I did not have a brand in mind other that what I read about in magazines. I was helped in making a decision on purchasing a RoadMaster tow bar along with all the electrical wiring needed to do the job. Everything came as described and was told if I had any problems what so ever to call for help. None needed but was good to hear knowing i had back up. I have used this tow bar and hook ups for around 10 or so camping trips. Mostly from Maryland to Myrtle Beach SC. No problems what so ever. I highly recommend etrailer and the RoadMaster lighted tow bar, wiring and bracket for my Car.

- RM-676

This is a very easy bar to install and remove. This is the first bar I have owned. I looked at several and talked to owners of other makes. The feed back was such that the nighthawk was my preferred choice. Didn't take long for me to realize I made the right choice. The complements I received From the folks that watched while I Hooked up were proof that your product is superior in many ways.

Awesome! So easy to attach to both the MH and tow vehicle.

The Roadmaster Nighthawk Tow system I purchased from you is the easiest to hook up. Only takes a few minutes and there is no getting down on the ground

It is unbelievably easy to hook up and unhook makes a small task
Duane D - 10/30/2021

Install on a 2020 Ford Ranger. The product was excellent. The only problem I had was trying to remove the nuts holding the front bumper on. Ford has these bolts embedded in a hard plastic frame that spaces the three bolts on each side. In trying to remove the nuts I got them started then they would neither come on off nor reinstall. The nuts were spinning the bolts. After thinking about the fix I was in I decided to cut the factory bolts off and replace them with 1/2" x 1 1/2" bolts with fender washers. I tried a sawsall with a metal cutting blade and the bolts ate the teeth right off. I put on a Milwaukee thick metal cutting carbide tooth blade and that did the trick. Other than that, which is Ford's fault, everything went as the etrailer videos showed. If you are doing this make sure to spray the exposed bolt threads with WD-40 or something like before you try to remove the nuts.

Purchased to tow my Jeep behind my Motorhome. Since I am a solo traveler, a great benefit is that this was super easy to connect and disconnect. Lights up fantastic. One dislike is that I wish there was a cleaner way to stow the cords after disconnect of it all. May need to figure out a way to wrap and lock it up securely to the hitch/bumper of my motorhome so that I don't need to remove it every time I camp.

- RM-676

Great tow-bar! Easy to use. Love ?? the lights. We tow a Ford Explorer. Great tracking, no bounce or uneven feel. Excellent performance. Love that it’s packaged with what you need and great information on use & care.

- RM-676

I went the whole Roadmaster way. Nighthawk tow bar and base with the Invisbrake controller for our 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth. It tows the Abarth so well that we can't tell it's behind our Thor Compass 23TE. The Invisbrake works great too!

- RM-676

Great product. Highly recommended. We are using this tow bar on a 2008 Chevy Tahoe. We love the side LED lights as well. All the cables are heavy duty and have not shown any signs of wear or tear after 1 year of use. Caution: make sure you check your package contents when you receive the tow bar. It was not packaged too well; there was no padding in the box, so the plastic wiring harness 7 pin socket got crushed during shipping.

- RM-676

Great tow bar arrived in perfect condition. I like the fact that it came with safety cables and wire harness. Also came with the socket for the toad wiring.

Towing a 2017 Jeep JKU. The Nighthawk is easy to hook up and disconnect and works great. Highly recommend the bar.

- RM-676

Haven’t used it yet but the quality of the product is very good and it’s easy to use and much lighter than I thought it would be. Definitely worth the little extra it cost. Plus all cables and wiring was included.

works perfect

Just purchased and used once. Very easy to hook up and works great. I'm glad I chose this tow bar, the lighting is great.

- RM-676

Great towbar. This is my third Roadmaster towbar over the past 25+ years of RV'ing and towing Jeeps, all have been nice products. I have used this Roadmaster Nighthawk for the past year with approx. 6k miles towing our 2011 JKUR behind our 2003 Monaco Dynasty and so far I am very pleased with the purchase and product.

- RM-676

Easy to connect. Sure does beat climbing underneath a tow dolly to hook up the straps. Excellent product. Use it towing a Jeep Wrangler behind a 2019 Newmar Dutch Star with the aid of an Air Force 1 brake controller.

- RM-676

Easy to use and works well. We also bought the Roadmaster Cover for this.

- RM-676

Great Product, 1 year in service, 20,000+ miles. Simple hookup and disconnect. Lighter weight makes handling it much easier. LED lights are a nice safety feature. Very happy with the tow bar and E Trailer.

- RM-676

Fantastic set up.

- RM-676

RMR-676 was received quicker than expected, living in Alaska this was a great plus. Our product arrived missing some hardware. I contacted etrailer and the missing pieces were right away. Great service from etrailer and Roadmaster !!! Looking forward to snow melting and getting the motor home out for an actual road test!!!

- RM-676

Works great. Easy to connect or disconnect my Jeep Gladiator and has towed it flawlessly.

- RM-676

Pulled a Subaru Crosstrek over 2k miles on hills curves and flat roads with no problems. I really liked the side lights as they lit up the car and I could see it better at night with mirrors and rear view camera. Easy hook up and disconnect. I would purchase again.

- RM-676

This is a great tow bar. I have had no issues towing my keep.

- RM-676

Only complaint I have was when checking it said it was in stock. They did reach out and informed me when it would be in stock and as soon as they got one it would ship. They must have gotten some early so I did receive it in a very timely matter and before they thought they would receive new stock. Would like to give a shout out to customer service by far excellent. Gave 4 stars only because it actually checked marked that product was in stock. When I returned later it wasn’t. Maybe a computer error, or somebody beat me to the last one. I would definitely recommend them for your towing needs.

- RM-676

Works great, only problem which was fairly easy to fix was corrosion of the electrical connector

- RM-676

only had one issue which were the locking links were over tightened when installed and broke in half when I removed it on the safety chains. I notified e- trailer and sent pictures did not here back. I replaced the links with American made links and all is well. the links that came with it that were installed said made in china.
