Compatibility of Older Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar 5250 with 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara


I have a Falcon 5250 Tow Bar and I want to use it on my 2005 Susuki Grand Vitara. Can I use this Tow Bar or do I need a new one?


Expert Reply:

The Roadmaster Falcon tow bar 5250 is the older version, which has since been replaced by the Falcon 2 # RM-520. This tow bar is compatible with both the Roadmaster XL base plates # 1011-3 and the MX base plates # 1011-5 and can handle the Grand Vitara's curb weight of approximately 3200-lbs.

You may care to have a look at the linked article on flat towing which details all of the components required for safe and legal flat towing. These items include safety cables like # RM-643, a lighting kit such as # TL21RK, a braking system like the Patriot # BLU37TR and often a high/low hitch adapter like # RM-048-6.
