Product Details

The Ascent aluminum tow bar is for use with towed vehicles up to 7,500 lbs. and has longer legs for an improved turning radius and smoother towing. This easy foldaway tow bar mounts and stores on the back of the RV when not in use. It is self aligning, has quick disconnect hookup pins and Signature Series easy-release locking handles. It is constructed of aircraft aluminum. Safety cables are included.

Blue Ox baseplates are custom designed to be easy on your suspension and even easier on the eye, because they are designed with hidden mounting reinforcements bolted directy to the chassis. Vehicle specific baseplate is integrated into the individual bumper design of the towed vehicle. When you aren't towing, just remove the tabs to make your baseplate virtually invisible to the casual observer.


Baseplate Footnotes - 1,2

  • Requires no welding for installation
  • Baseplates are hidden beneath the vehicle body
  • All baseplates are backed by a three year manufacturer warranty


We also include a custom fit cover to protect your new tow bar to keep it looking great.

Towed Vehicle Electrical, Brake System & Receiver and Tow Bar Locks are sold separately.

Important Towability Note: Blue Ox offers the above baseplate for your vehicle, but how that vehicle is equipped (i.e. automatic transmission, 4-wheel drive, etc.) must be considered when determining its towability. Please read the owner's manual and/or consult your dealer to determine if your vehicle is flat towable and the correct towing procedures for your vehicle. Additional equipment such as a transmission pump or driveshaft disconnect may be required and are sold separately. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in damage to the towed vehicle or personal injury.
