Base Plate Kit Needed to Tow 2013 Ford Focus Using Falcon 2 Tow Bar with No Crossbar


I bought a motorhome with a falcon 2 towbar but it did not have a crossbar. Do I need a crossbar to tow a 2013 ford focus. If not, which base plates do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

You can just install one of the Direct-Connect base plate kits on your 2013 Ford Focus so that it is compatible with your Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 Tow Bar. If your Focus is an ST model then you need part # RM-524442-5 but if you have a non-ST model (without the Adaptive Cruise Control) then you need part # RM-524430-5.

From the picture you sent in I think you have the original Falcon tow bar, but the base plate kits will work regardless.

For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. If you do not have all of these components just let me know and I can make some additional recommendations for you.
