Why are Blue Ox base plates vehicle specific? Blue Ox base plates connect directly to the tow vehicle’s undercarriage for a safe and sturdy connection. That’s why the base plates are specific and not universal. Every Flat 4 RV tow-able vehicle has different shapes and ideal mounting points. Blue Ox uses advanced design software and testing equipment to create the best on-road towing results in each Blue Ox base plate.
