Best Tow Bar For Roadmaster Crossbar Base Plates on 2015 Jeep Wrangler


We have a 2015 Jeep wrangler we used to row behind a 2015 Winnebago Aspect. It still has the Roadmaster EZ4 baseplate # 521448-4 attached. We now have a 2019 Dynamax Isata 3 on 2017 Mercedes chassis. We need to purchase a new tow bar. What do you suggest? Looking @ Roadmaster Nighthawk, and Sterling. Advice please. On another issue....can a grill guard be mounted on Jeep with baseplate attached or would it go in the same hole opening in frame? Thank you

We can absolutely get your 2015 Jeep Wrangler set up with a new tow bar that is compatible with your Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-4. The tow bars you mentioned are great, and though the Nighthawk isn't compatible with crossbar-style base plates, the best tow bar that is compatible is indeed the Sterling:

- Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-576

The reason why the Sterling is the best is not only its functionality but also the extras it provides. The Sterling # RM-576 has long, 50-1/2" arms that make it easier for your Jeep to track for optimal maneuverability. It also has simple to use latches that allow you to disconnect the tow bar even if you are not perfectly level.

The Sterling is also made of aluminum, which will not only resist corrosion much better than steel tow bars, but also makes it much lighter (weighing just 35 lbs) so it is easier to handle. Additionally, the Sterling comes with safety cables as well as a wiring connector to plug in between your motorhome and Jeep. Lastly, in regards to your question about the grille guard, one cannot be mounted with base plates as there would indeed be interference.
