Adapting Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar to Demco Base Plates on 2007 Saturn Vue


I have a blue ox alpha tow bar. Can I use my alpha with a car equipped with a demco base plate or do I need to buy a new baseplate?


Expert Reply:

You'll need a new base plate, I'm sorry to say. There's not an adapter available that would allow your Demco base plates to work with the Alpha tow bar. I'd recommend the Blue Ox # BX3335 base plates.

If you don't already have a wiring option, I'd also recommend the Roadmaster # RM-155, which involves installing a separate bulb in the taillight assembly of the Vue.

Most states require a supplemental braking system like the Blue Ox Patriot lIl, part # BRK2019.

I've linked you to some articles about flat towing that you might find helpful.
