Blue Ox Base Plates and Brackets

Blue Ox base plates are easy on your suspension and even easier on the eye, because they are designed with hidden reinforcements. Vehicle specific baseplate is integrated into the individual bumper design of the towed vehicle. Selected Blue Ox base plates have removable tabs that further enhance the aesthetics. When you aren't towing, just remove the tabs to make your base plate virtually invisible to the casual observer.

Patriot 3 Braking System

The Patriot 3 Brake System from Blue Ox gives you the comfort needed when you are braking your towed vehicle. Not only is it convenient and easy to store, but it also proportionally applies the brakes smoothly while you're slowing to a stop, instead of suddenly jolting your towed vehicle causing costly damage to your brakes. The Patriot 3 even works with Hybrids! The Blue Ox Patriot 3 braking system comes with a two year warranty.

The Patriot 3 works with your motor home and towed vehicle to safely bring them to a smooth stop with proportional braking.

No More Wires
Monitor all brake functions or manually apply brakes from the comfort of the driver's seat through a wireless remote control that continuously communicates with the braking system.

No More Power Concerns
Built-in super capacitor battery ensures power is always available to the brake.

No More Mess
By using an electric cylinder there are no air pumps, storage tanks or hoses - therefore, no chance for leaking and greatly reduces power required.

  • Please see this link for state specific towing laws - RV Industry Association Web Site
  • Due to the floorpan configuration on the driver’s side of the Honda Fit, this braking system will not work with this vehicle.
  • Compatible with Hybrids!
  • All electric - no pump, tank or air hoses to leak

Blue Ox

There are two motor home mounted tow bars in our product line, the Aluminum Aladdin Tow Bar and the ball-in-socket design Aventa Tow Bar. Both of these mount directly to the motor home's 2 inch receiver hitch.

For a car mounted tow bar, we recommend the Acclaim and the Adventurer tow bars. We also offer the Allure tow bar which has a tow ring for attaching to a pintle hook and the Adventurer adjustable folding tow bar.

Blue Ox refers to their vehicle attachment product as a base plate. Other manufacturers may call the product a bracket.

Blue Ox base plates are designed to securely attach a tow bar to the front of a vehicle being towed. The base plate is bolted to the frame of the front end of the vehicle.

The base plates come in either the standard tab version or the removable tab version. The standard tab has a small part that shows on the front of the vehicle. The removable tab is different because you can actually remove this part that shows and not have anything sticking out of the front of your vehicle. Some base plates are available in one or the other versions only, some in both.
