Roadmaster Announces the Nighthawk Tow Bar

With the built-in LED lighting, drivers can see the tow bar.  As a Nighthawk owner, you can also see the tow bar, pins, and clips in a dark campground.  Anyone who has hooked or unhooked a towed vehicle before dawn or after dusk will appreciate the convenience and safety of the built-in lighting.

The LED light strip exceeds the IP68 standard which is the most waterproof and weather proof rating for LEDs.  IP68 is a totally encapsulated LED that’s impervious to water and air.

Check out our video showing a Nighthawk that’s been submerged in 100 gallon water tank for a couple days.  The IP68 LED lights keep on going –  like a Timex watch.  It’s cool to see that.

TCM: What is the towing capacity of the Roadmaster Nighthawk?

David: The Nighthawk has a market-leading towing capacity of 8,000 pounds.  The inner arms are solid stainless steel.  The Nighthawk’s outer arms are made from aircraft grade aluminum.

The Nighthawk also features extruded aluminum cavities for the power cord and safety cables.  The power cord and safety cables can go through the tow bar instead of around it.  Towing systems sometimes look like a wiring mess because the power cord and safety cables are wrapped around the towing bar.  This has been solved with the Nighthawk channels.

The Nighthawk is non-binding.  It gives you the freedom to connect and disconnect at any angle.  The operation is easy.

Nighthawk RV mounted tow bar

TCM: The Nighthawk is a RV-mounted tow bar.  Will it be available as a car mounted tow bar?

David: Not at this time.  If consumer demand is there, we would certainly consider a car mounted version of the Nighthawk.

TCM: Is the Roadmaster Nighthawk a product a customer can install themselves, or do you recommend a dealership installation?
