Motorhome Dinghy Towing with a Blue Ox Baseplate

Blue Ox Baseplates are the #1 choice for America’s towing needs. Our baseplates are custom made to best fit each individual towing situation without requiring drastic alterations to the vehicle. These durable, steel constructed baseplates are easily integrated into the original frame and bumper. Blue Ox’s unique design allows the towing baseplate to flex and absorb any shock during the drive, rather than transferring the rigid force of a bumpy ride to the frame of the vehicle. The weight is spread evenly to minimize how much pressure is placed on the suspension.

Removable Tabs on Most Models

Blue Ox Baseplates are thoughtfully crafted, and select models come with removable tabs, making the look of your vehicle more aesthetically pleasing, even with the baseplate installed. There are no large brackets protruding or crossbar support beam. The tabs can simply be removed when not towing, making the baseplate practically invisible to the untrained eye. In addition to aesthetics, our baseplates have set new industry standards with our locking linchpin. Other manufacturers often use cotter pins which are more likely to come loose creating the potential for damage to the vehicle or cause an accident.

Other baseplates often require welding, making installation complicated and time-consuming. Blue Ox towing baseplates are designed to use the existing holes on the vehicle and can be easily and securely bolted to the chassis. All necessary instructions and hardware for installation are included with each baseplate kit. Blue Ox recommends always using the proper hardware included as existing bolts on the vehicle may not be adequate for baseplate mounting. When doing towing of any kind, a secure and reliable baseplate is essential for consistently safe travel on the roads.
