Help! Identifying baseplate

I just purchased a "Used" 2017 Trailhawk, that came with this baseplate (and SMI Airforce braking system) to tow behind my HR Endeavor 37XE. Problem is, I'm unable to identify this baseplate setup. I'd like to buy a Roadmaster Tow bar (Fal 2), but unsure if it will be compatable. Please look at the pics Thanks, Jim

Looks like a blue ox set up. But I think you can get a road master with blue ox connections

96 Wideglide, I hadn't even considere that. Not at all familiar with Demco. Is this good, or bad, in your opinion?

I like mine, as well as the 10,500lb tow bar !

I tow a 2900lb car with it. I like overkill !

I think they are correct. The blue ox looks like that on the hitch not the base plate. Sorry for the bad info

Hi Jim! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Can't help with the baseplate but wanted to say hello. Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thanks for the responses

After more research, I think I agree with the Demco. Gonna verify and then see if Roadmaster has an adapter. I've got a great deal on a falcon 2, if it will work.

Also make sure to put a Vented Vinyl Cap on the AF1 connector when the system is not connected. I would suggest purchasing at least a few of them as they seem to easily go astray.

What ever baseplate it is it sure looks heavy enough! I only use RoadMaster equipment. Partly because I can drive to the factory in about an hour from home.
