Review of Roadmaster Tow Bars RM-020


Today we're going to be reviewing part number RM-020. This is the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar rated at 5000 pounds. The A-frame tow bar is going to allow you to tow your vehicle safely behind your RV. It's going to feature the full length crossbar that's going to provide maximum strength. It's all made from a nice steel construction. It's got the sealed arms that are going to guard against moisture and debris. It also has a foldable design that makes it very easy to store and I'll show you that more towards the end of the video. There's this little bracket right here that you can see.

This is going to be a safety chain pass through, that way you can cross your chains, wrap it around your arms and then it's got the attachment points back here for your chains to hook into. It's going to feature the high tech powder coat finish so it's going to offer superior durability against rust and corrosion. The Tracker model will fit RoadMaster XL, EZ and standard base plate brackets. It does require the RoadMaster Quick Disconnects for removal of XL and EZ front extensions and it will not work with MX or MS series base plates. Also keep in mind that this cannot be adapted to fit Blue Ox base plates. Here at the front we're going to have the coupler. The latch mechanism right here is very easy to use, to allow you to connect and disconnect from the hitch ball.

It's also got a slot right here, that way you can install a coupler pin or coupler lock. Those are going to be sold separately. You can find those right here at etrailer.com. This coupler is designed to fit a 2-inch ball. Again it's going to offer an overall capacity of 5000 pounds. A couple of measurements to go over real quick.

The overall length of the crossbar here at the back is going to give us a measurement of 33 1/2 inches. Measuring from the center of where it mounts to the center on the opposite side, that's going to give us a measurement of right at 31 inches. All the hardware is going to be included. It's going to come with the pins and clips that attach the arms to the crossbar, as well as the bolts, washers and the nuts that you need to secure this to the tow vehicle. Real quick I just want to go ahead and show you the foldable design. One of these arms will swing, so all we have to do is remove the pin and clip from that spot right there.

Very easy to do; very easy system to use. I'll do that on this side as well. So you can see there that when it's not attached it can come together which is going to take up less space. That way you can easily store it as needed. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RM-020. This is the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar rated at 5000 pounds.
