This towing package is for a tow vehicle that has a total weight of up to 8,000 pounds, and has a coach with hydraulic brakes.
This Package Includes:
The Sterling All-Terrain was designed, tested and manufactured to the highest standards. The Sterling All-Terrain weighs just 35 pounds, yet pulls up to four tons. A unique eggshell design distributes pressure throughout the tow bar, making the Sterling All-Terrain the world's strongest aluminum tow bar with steel and stainless steel at every critical point to further ensure superior strength and structural integrity. The Sterling All-Terrain is easy to connect, and its stainless steel inner arms telescope, center and automatically lock as you pull away. Once you've reached your destination, a unique storage lock secures the Sterling All-Terrain in its stored position.
The Sterling All-Terrain comes complete with safety cables and power cord. Both are routed through a center channel for added safety, convenience and a clean, uncluttered appearance. Beyond its many performance features, the Sterling All-Terrain is aesthetically pleasing — its powder-coated finish and sleek design complement your coach and your car. As well they should — the Sterling All-Terrain exemplifies ROADMASTER’s highest standards, as well as yours.
• One-person quick-connect and disconnect
At the towed vehicle…
Thanks to an exclusive, self-supporting quick-disconnect system, one person can easily connect or disconnect the Sterling All-Terrain in seconds. (These baseplates also make it extremely easy to attach accessories such as the Guardian™ and the Tow Defender).
And at the motorhome…
Telescoping, independently-adjustable inner arms are easy to maneuver into position. Simply pin them in place and then drive your motorhome away and the arms automatically center and lock in place.
• The largest hook-up radius in the industry means you don’t waste time lining up your towed vehicle. You can’t say this about many things in life but connecting the Sterling All-Terrain is just like horseshoes — “close” is good enough!
• Self-lubricating polyurethane bushings eliminate friction between the inner and outer arms for smooth, easy operation. Other tow bars have steel riding on steel.
• Patented storage latch
Simply fold the Sterling All-Terrain toward the motorhome and the storage latch will click, automatically locking it in place. When you’re ready to tow, just lift the tow bar up and press the storage latch to release the lock.
• Channel guides
The safety cables and power cord are both routed through the built-in channel guides for protection against damage or dragging, and for a clean, uncluttered look. There’s no need to wrap the cables or the power cord around the tow bar every morning.
When you reach your destination, the Sterling All-Terrain conveniently stores out of the way on the back of the motorhome.
• No ball mount to drag
The Sterling All-Terrain mounts into a 2-inch receiver.
• Solid stainless steel inner arms
Solid stainless steel inner arms for smooth, trouble-free operation and easy maintenance. Stainless steel looks better, lasts longer and prevents corrosion that binds — ROADMASTER tow bars are the most rust-free in the industry.
• Full-length steel crossbar — reinforced for maximum support and safety.
• A lustrous, high-tech powder coat finish for maximum durability. This finish exceeds all 500-hour salt spray, high-impact and extreme weather standards. In this process, charged particles of pigment are sprayed onto the surface of the tow bar, then baked at more than 400 degrees. The paint fuses to the metal. The result is a uniform, thick and extremely durable finish — three times stronger than solvent-based paint.
Roadmaster offers two styles of base plates, they are listed below. When booking you need to select the style of baseplate that you would like in options section above.
This style allows you to connect your tow bar directly to the baseplate, eliminating the need for a crossbar. This is our easiest system to connect and disconnect. If you are using a motorhome-mounted tow bar (except Sterling), this is the baseplate you should choose.
For a Sterling, Stowmaster, Tracker, Guardian Rock Shield, or Tow Defender part number 4700, use the Crossbar-Style shown below.
This style accommodates Roadmaster tow bars and accessories by utilizing the crossbar and/or quick-disconnect system as a mounting platform.
If you are using a Sterling or a car-mounted tow bar, you need this style of baseplate.
For the ROADMASTER All Terrain series of tow bars.

For any motorhome with hydraulic brakes, universal fit allows use with any tow vehicle.
more boxes! That is the cry of our customers. The Stay-IN-Play DUO
answers the cry. Duo's small operating unit is installed under the hood
so you never know it is there. No messy components scattered in the
towed vehicle to complicate things; just a small operating module to
control the towed vehicle brakes with no physical connection to the
combines the power of air pressure and the gentleness of vacuum to give
you the fastest, most powerful self contained supplemental brake ever.
DUO uses the power and speed of air pressure to activate your towed
vehicle brake pedal while creating vacuum for the power brake system.
These two features combine to create the only progressive and
proportionate vacuum assisted system with total control. DUO requires
BOTH deceleration AND coach brake lights to apply the towed vehicle
brakes. By combining two separate signals, the need for complicated
electronics is eliminated, which provides you with a more reliable long
lasting system. In addition, DUO is the pioneer in user-friendly
operation; "Just Turn it on...and Tow." This simple technology was first
introduced in 2003. Tried and true, DUO does not have to be taken in
and out for normal operation of the towed vehicle. Unhook the car and
drive off, that's all. No box, no wires; in fact, no physical connection
to the motor home at all.
Stay-IN-Play DUO system energizes the towed vehicle’s power brakes
without the engine running, so you have a soft brake pedal. Once
engaged, DUO replenishes the vacuum in the car's power brake system. By
replenishing vacuum, gentle smooth pressure is applied to the towed
vehicle’s brakes. With the power brakes active, only 10 - 12 pounds of
pressure is required to provide a gentle smooth stop.
of the towed vehicle's brakes require BOTH deceleration and the brake
lights from the motor home. Once BOTH signals are present, DUO gently
applies the brakes. There is no complicated gain or sensitivity to
achieve the proportionate balance of brake effort; it is all automatic.
Automatically, once engaged, DUO will apply progressive brake effort in
the towed vehicle. Because DUO uses both brake lights from the coach and
deceleration, there is absolutely no delay. This becomes critical in a
panic stop. Systems that use only deceleration must "think" first: is
this a step grade, is this a large bump, or is this stopping? Time
translates to feet while towing, and in a panic stop, inches are
important. No self contained system applies brakes faster than the DUO.
Notification" is another important aspect of any supplemental brake
system. Some claim to have it, but really do not; while others do not
really tell you about the position of the brake pedal in the towed
vehicle. Without question, the most important information while towing
is the status of the braking system in the towed vehicle. "Are the
brakes applied?" That is the question. When researching brake systems,
ask the question, "Do you have coach notification FROM THE TOWED
VEHICLE'S BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH?" Many will claim to have a signal but do
not, and others will have a signal from some other source. The only
reliable and complete signal must originate from the towed vehicle's
brake switch. If the light is on, the brakes are on, period. What you do
not want is a problem while you are towing. Knowing the position of the
brake pedal gives you that peace of mind.
on/off towing, the gentleness of vacuum, the speed and power of air
pressure, dual signal activation, and reliable coach notification all
combine to provide the most powerful, easy to use system available
