I have found a wealth of information on this swell site. Is there any possibility someone could tell me where to find a cross reference book/log etc for vehicles and base plates. I have gone onto the hitchiker site but many entries are listed with the base plate manufacturer or number and no vehicle description. I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport and am looking for a used base plate for a Roadmaster 5200 series. Thanks

I would only use the right base plate. Buying a used plate is a good idea but the cost to remove the plate makes most go with the vehicle when sold.

Go to the Roadmaster, Blue Ox and Demco web sites (or their dealers) and look up the base plate number for your Cherokee for each manufacturer. Then you can shop around for that part number. Here's a link to the Roadmaster Search Page

There are adapters available so that Blue Ox base plates can be used with Roadmaster tow bars, vice versa, and also Demco adapters, so you can probably buy any Cherokee base plate and use with with another brand of tow bar if you prefer.

UPS: Thanks for the reply. Your absolutely correct. I was looking for a short cut and the toad I just bought, 2001 Cherokee Sport, only has 57,000 miles so I might as well do it right. I did contact Roadmaster, since thats the tow bar I have and am waiting for a reply. Thanks Again bill

Earl: Thanks a million for the response. I just purchased this 2001 Cherokee and after second thoughts have decided to do it the right way. I did e mail roadmaster and am waiting for a reply re: cost and shipping. I had been towing a 97 Wrangler, but it was getting tired, as was the bride (of 43 years) trying to get in and out. Do appreciate your time. Thanks again, bill

Gary: Thanks so much for your quick and excellent response. I have since e mailed Roadmaster (as I have one of their Falcon 5250s) and I am waiting for their information. I have to tell you that I have watched how helpfull and gracious, not only the moderators of your fine site are, but also the members are and now I have received it first hand. I hope that in the near future I can share some of my own experience and help someone else. Thanks again bill
