Recommended Tow Bar For Flat Towing 2018 Ford F-150 With Electric Golf Cart In Bed


Will a 6000 lb tow bar be good for a f150 with a electric golf kart in the bed ?


Expert Reply:

You may be able to flat tow your 2018 Ford F-150 that has a golf cart in the bed with a 6000lb tow bar like the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520 you were looking at, but it will really depend on the exact weight of your F-150 and the golf cart.

2018 F-150s weigh between 4070-5700lbs depending on the options and if it is a crew cab or not.

A safer option is to go ahead and move up to a tow bar better suited for a full size truck like the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 8K # RM-576 which has a 8000lb weight limit which will be plenty for you truck and golf cart while still being a decent amount below the maximum weight. This tow bar also includes safety cables, a 6-way connector, and a 6-way to 7-way cord for powering the lights when flat towing

To complete your flat towing setup you will also need a few more things.

Base Plate Kit # RM-524431-5
Wiring # RM-152
Supplemental Braking System # BLU37TR

Lastly you will also more than likely need a high-low adapter to level the tow bar to your tow vehicle so I included a helpful article that will go over how to measure for the correct adapter, and a link to all of our high-low adapters for you to take a look at.

It is always a good idea to check the recreational towing section of your owner's manual for any restrictions regarding flat towing, and for any special steps required to make your vehicle ready to be flat towed.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
