Since our experience with the Sterling All-Terrain tow bar has been nothing short of… ahem… sterling, we couldn’t wait to try out Roadmaster’s hot new follow-up: the Nighthawk. We’ve even arranged an exclusive deal on it for you!
We’re honored that Roadmaster has given us the opportunity to premiere their cool new tow bar (Wait… didn’t we just say it was hot? Well it’s cool and hot)! wink
Binding while trying to disconnect a toad (towed car) from a motorhome is a common problem, and the primary reason we upgraded from our old Blue Ox tow bar in the first place. Since then, we’ve tried to challenge our Sterling at every opportunity. So far, we’ve been unable to make it bind a single time, even when disconnecting on steep inclines or sharp turns (or both at the same time).
The new Nighthawk uses the same Roadmaster patented non-binding Freedom Latch as the Sterling, so we weren’t the least bit surprised that it won’t bind either. But after dark, it’s a whole different animal, and surely the safest tow bar ever made, addressing a nagging issue we’ve always had about towing, especially at night. We’d tell you more about it, but it’s more fun to watch our hot new video. It’s cool!

For anyone who watched the above video all the way to the end… yes indeed, that’s our dear friends Nikki & Jason Wynn in the closing drone shot, trekking out to Trona Pinnacles with us. Can’t believe that was just over a year ago, and they’re long gone on their boat. Follow their adventures at GoneWithTheWynns.com and watch our entire Trona Pinnacles video here.

UPDATE: We’re getting questions about the location where our RV is perched at the end of the video. That amazing boondocking spot is in the Alabama Hills, near Lone Pine, California. The exact GPS coordinates of the site we stayed in are: 36.610927, -118.128550. This particular spot is a bit off-level and takes a little work to get a big rig in there comfortably, but if you’re there for at least several days, like we were, it’s worth it!
