America’s Best-Selling Car-Mounted Tow Bar!
  • Stainless steel in virtually every moving component for smooth, trouble-free operation.

  • Autowlok locking mechanism — allows both tow bar arms to extend or retract for a quick connection. Then, as you drive away, the arms self-center and automatically lock.

  • Full-length safety crossbar — a full-length angle iron brace is integrated into the rear of the bar for maximum support.

  • Self-lubricating nylon bushings eliminate friction between the inner and outer arms. Other tow bars use steel on steel.

  • Plug-welded arms — steel plugs seal both ends of the tow bar, preventing corrosion from moisture and debris.

  • A lustrous, high-tech powder coat finish for maximum durability.

    I bought this and have used it about a half a dozen times to tow our 2004 Jeep Wrangler behind our Class A Motorhome. It all works fine, unhooked fine, but the darn thing just weighs way to much to take it off and put it on when arriving/departing, put it in it's bag and stuffing it in one of the compartments under the motorhome for storage.

    Best Value in tow bars

    I've used the Stowmaster tow bar for about 18 months and find it to be easy to use, simple to hook-up, reliable, and easy to take on and off of the tow vehicle. I perfer the Stowmaster with it's ball mount over others models that connect directly to the motorhome's 2" stinger adapter. The Stowmaster stays with the toad which I find more desirable than tow bars that stay on the motorhome. This is a personal prefence thing I guess, but it's MY preference. I'm in the process of trading my Jeep Wrangler for a Chevy Colorado, and all I have to do is buy base-plates for the Colorado and I'm ready to roll.

    Used with 2 "toads". Works like a WONDER. One-person hook-up.

    I used this Stowmaster to tow my Jeep Cherokee four-down on a solo, five-week, nine-western-states tour in 1999. I got the Stowmaster accessory and wiring kit and the behind-bumper base plate installed. Hook-up and disconnect was a breeze. The self-aligning feature is nice!!! One-person hook-up is simple, when you don't have to get the hitch directly over the ball before connecting. Just get it near, hook to the ball, then pull the tow vehicle forward and the arms lock. I kept the Stowmaster attached to the Jeep the whole trip, even when 4-wheeling. Not a rattle nor rumble. When I got ready to move to a new job, I sold the Jeep and bought a Saturn. I only had to buy a new Saturn base plate and the minor portion of the wiring for inside the car, and I was again towing. The same Stowmaster tow bar again fit perfectly and performed flawlessly on the trip from California to Georgia, towing the Saturn four-down. Stowmaster makes the bar to be interchangeable, then "worries" about the actual fit through its base plates. Good design!

    Purchased my first Stowmaster 5000 in 1998. Just purchased a replacement today because the price was right! The original still functions as new, only minimal bushing wear. The stainless construction held up through it all, the design makes it easy for one person to hook up to the toad to the coach. One only needs to get close, the tow bar collapses and can be maneuvered in and out and from side to side, once the coach is driven forward, the tow bar automatically locks itself inline. I chose to have the tow bar remain mounted to the toad when in travel mode, but you can have it set-up to remain on the coach if you wish. Bottom line, after all the miles, it still performs as designed. If you purchase another toad, all that is needed is a base plate for the new rig, and the tow bar can be switched over to the new rig. The only maintenance I performed was: wash off the road debris and occasionally spray the tow bar with a lubricant.(WD40 or equivalent) Virtually worry free for years. I also purchased the tow accessories, which like the tow bar, worked effortlessly in tandem, the right parts for the complete package.

    Installed on 2007 Jeep and 2011 Itasca. Very sturdy, a little heavy but very easy to put on/off. Great feature with the flexible movement of the ball hitch. Would recommend to anyone!
