Blue Ox Flat Towing Set Up For 2021 Ford Ranger & Motorhome With Air Brakes


Would like a Blue Ox complete set For my 2021 Ford Ranger. I do have air brakes on my motorhome, so I also would like the AirForce One brake system. How do I get all of this and at what price.


Helpful Expert Reply:

We do have the Blue Ox parts that fit your 2021 Ford Ranger so you can flat tow it behind your motorhome so you can get it all right here; I'll go ahead and list out the parts for you to make it easy to order, including the Air Force braking system.

- Base Plate Kit: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BLU77XR

- Tow Bar: Blue Ox Ascent Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX4370

- Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267

- Supplemental Braking System: Demco SBS Air Force One Supplemental Braking System for Motorhomes with Air Brakes # SM99243

- Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-88400

The prices for each of these parts can be found on their product pages or by scrolling down where they are listed. For the parts themselves, the Blue Ox base plate kit fits your '21 Ranger, and I've added a photo of this kit installed on a 2021 Ranger which shows how it will look when installed on yours. The Ascent tow bar is compatible with this kit and is a great option because it has long arms that make it easier to maneuver when towing, along with integrated safety cables so you don't have to purchase those separately.

I really like the Flexo-Coil wiring kit because it is designed to prevent any type of electrical feedback, keeping your Ranger's electrical system safe. As for the braking system, the Air Force One is designed to be used with motorhomes that have air brakes like you mentioned, and its proportional braking allows it to be much smoother than other systems. The Brake-Lite relay is also needed for your Ranger in order to prevent its brake signal from overriding the turn signal from the RV when applying your brakes as you turn.

Finally, I also recommend the Blue Ox KarGard Towed Vehicle Protector # # BX8870 to help keep rocks and other debris from hitting your Ranger while you are flat towing it.
