Best Base Plate and Tow Bar for Flat Towing a 2016 Ford Edge with Adaptive-Active Cruise Control


I have interest in purchase of 2016 Ford Edge w/4cyl Ecoboost, with active cruse control. I notice in your applications charts you do not list a base plate for this vehicle. Do you have one for this vehicle? I have a Falcon 2 and a Stowmaster 5000 tow bar. Is there a better of the 2? Thanks for the reply

I spoke to my contact at Roadmaster who said the EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-524448-4 is compatible with a V6/2.7 Liter Ecoboost 2016 Ford Edge with active cruise control. However, this base plate is not compatible with 4 CYL/2.0 Liter Ecoboost models with active cruise control. Unfortunately, there is not a base plate kit available for 4 cyl. 2.0L EcoBoost Ford Edge Models.

If you would consider a 2.7L EcoBoost, I would recommend the Falcon 2 # RM-520 tow bar in conjunction with Base Plate Kit # RM-524448-4 because the tow bar installs using your RV's receiver hitch with no need for a ball mount. The Falcon 2 folds up nicely and stays attached to your RV when you're not flat towing as well. The Stowmaster 5000 tow bar also folds up but would remain attached to your Edge when not being towed.
