We have you covered with all the parts you'll need to flat tow your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty, including the Blue Ox base plates. These are a really nice choice because there isn't any part of the base plate showing except for the tabs, which are removable when you aren't flat towing your truck, which ensures it keeps it's aesthetic.

The list of all the parts you need to flat tow your 2021 F-250, including the base plates, is the following:

- Base Plate Kit: Rodmaster Direct Connect Base Plate Kit # RM28FR
- Tow Bar: Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All-Terrain Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-422
- Safety Cables # # RM-653
- Wiring Kit: Demco 4-Diode Universal Towed Vehicle Wiring Kit with 7-Wire to 6-Wire Coiled Connector # DM9523010-54
- Supplemental Braking System: Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # DM86VR
- For a motorhome with air brakes: Demco SBS Air Force One Supplemental Braking System # DM26VR
- Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit # RM-88400

The Roadmaster base plates require a compatible tow bar, and the BlackHawk is easily the best option for your F-250 as it has the capacity needed (10,000 lbs) for your heavy Super Duty, and has long 52-1/4" arms which make it easier for the truck to maneuver when being towed.

The Demco wiring kit is designed to prevent any type of electrical feedback to keep your F-250's electrical system safe, and both the Stay-IN-Play DUO and Air Force One are strongly recommended because they are one-time installs which will never require any type of removal or reactivation, and give you braking proportional to that of your motorhome. This results in much smoother braking than most systems which send out a pre-set amount of braking power and thus are more rigid.
