Blue Ox to Roadmaster for tracker adapter

Hi
We bought a 1006 Tracker to use as a toad. It has a Roadmaster baseplate. I don't see any info on the plate but I was told that is what it is. It also came with a Roadmaster towbar but we prefer our Blue Ox that fits into the receiver. What adapter do you use in this situation? The adapters on the blue ox site seem to be for a different tow bar. Ours had a machined aluminum end that won't fit most.

Does this one

fit the Roadmaster base plate, replacing the bar across the front? That seems simple and would fit my bar. Is that what folks use?

Here are pics of the tow bar and the base plate.

It looks like the ends on the Tracker are too wide.

Agreed. Thus the need for an adapter.

Looks like the Blue Ox to RoadMaster cross bar would be the correct adapter

Looks like it just replaces the crossbar on the front. Nice. Thanks.

Ordered the adapter because it looked like the simplest solution. Thanks all.
