Kia Soul Questions

  • We do have a trailer hitch that will fit your 2015 Kia Soul. You can use Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60347. If you plan on doing any towing you will also need wiring, # 118637. The hitch comes with a ball mount. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80 and for a 2 inch ball use # A-82. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier you can use Draw-Tite hitch # 24915. It does not come with a ball mount. Then you have to make sure the accessory...

  • The Classic Accessories Deluxe PolyPro III Heavy-Duty Pop-Up Camper Cover, # CA80039, is our best selling popup/folding camper cover. As long as your camper is configured similar to one of the pictured in the drawing I provided, see link, and the body of the camper is between 10 and 12 feet long, the cover will fit. If there are roof mounted accessories on the camper the cover will fit, the sides will not go down as far though. The durability of the cover will have a lot to...

  • A concern you will have when going with a roof rack system is the roof load carrying capacity of your 2011 Kia Soul and the weight limit of the roof rack. You will want to make sure not to exceed the load limit of your roof or roof rack. The roof rack, plus the weight of the boat and any other cargo will be considered weight on your roof. The roof load carrying capacity of your Kia Soul can be found in the vehicle owners manual. The problem you will run into is the capacity...

  • To complete your flat towing setup, you will need a base plate kit, vehicle wiring kit, a supplemental braking system and a new tow bar. Be sure you check your owners manual or have your dealer verify that it is safe to flat tow your 2012 Kia Soul. We carry two base plate kits for your vehicle, the Blue Ox Base Plates, # BX2715, that you referenced and the Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit, # 522112-1. These base plates are not compatible with your Blue Ox tow bar and there is...

  • You will need to put the ignition of your 2016 Kia Soul in the ACC position so that the steering wheel will be unlocked. The correct base plate kit for your 2016 Kia Soul with a manual transmission would be the # RM-522114-4. The base plate kit you referenced is for older model Souls so it would not be the correct one. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Kia Soul. To show you how this 2-bike trunk-mount rack would install on your Soul I have linked a video showing this rack in use on a 2014 model year. No vehicle's trunk or hatch should be opened with a loaded trunk-mount bike rack installed. The weight of the rack and bikes presents a pretty hefty load for the trunk/hatch hinge mechanism, which was really designed for handling the weight of the hatch...

  • The Rola roof rack # 59789 is best utilized with the 2014 Kia Soul that has no existing rails or crossbars (a naked roof). If your 2014 Kia Soul has existing rails or crossbars, I recommend Thule AeroBlade # THARB47. They are very sturdy, quiet and aerodynamic. The Thule foot pack # TH450R has rubber coated steel clamping straps to provide maximum security and strength. There isn't any confirmed roof racks that work with panoramic sunroofs unless the vehicle has existing...

  • The Curt hitch offered for your 2015 Kia Soul is a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I type, part # C11419, that has 200-lb tongue weight (TW) and 2000-lb gross trailer weight (GTW) ratings. But, and here's a big but, your 2015 Soul is NOT recommended for use to tow any size trailer. Kia indicates that this lightweight vehicle simply is not designed for towing a trailer. The hitches that are offered for it, again all are light duty Class I types, are made to allow hitch-mount accessory...

  • There are 2 and 3 bike trunk mounted racks available for you 2013 Kia Soul. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT that you referenced is actually a confirmed fit and would work for you. If you are considering going the hitch bike rack route I would strongly recommend you do so. Hitch mounted racks do not make contact with painted surfaces of vehicles like trunk mounted racks do, are easier to install and uninstall, and once you have a hitch you have more options in the...

  • We do offer a few different hitch receivers for your 2015 Kia Soul. I have included a link to these for you. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24915. This hitch installs with no drilling or welding required and offers a 200 lb tongue weight and 2000 lb towing capacity. As for the size of RV/trailer that you will be able to pull, due to the fact that Kia does not recommend using this vehicle for trailer towing, they do not provide a towing...

  • The vehicle anchor straps can be mounted using some existing locations under the hood of your 2011 Kia Soul or you could use your own hardware. They used an existing bolt to secure one end of the strap for # TH529. For the back or another option for the front take a look at # TH530. This design has a large tube that cannot be pulled out once the hood or hatch is closed. You can then use a tie down kit like # TH855XT. I have included a link to a video of # TH530 for you...

  • If you click the provided link, you can see the available hitches for a 2010 Kia Soul. As you can see, there are no Class II or III hitches available for the Soul as the rear structure of the vehicle cannot support the towing or tongue weight that a Class II or III hitch would be rated for. The weight of the scooter plus the weight of any carrier would far exceed the capacity of the hitch, and would cause the hitch and probably the vehicle to be damaged. For this reason, there...

  • We do indeed have a photo provided from Curt showing their # C11419 installed on a second-generation Kia Soul. As you can see, the only portion of the hitch that's visible from eye level at the rear of the vehicle is the receiver opening, almost all of the crossbar is concealed by the bumper. Hidden Hitch offers the # 60347 and Draw-Tite has # 24915, both of which would also be largely concealed behind the bumper. All three hitches have the same weight rating, and would...

  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24915, that you mentioned, will work great for your 2015 Kia Soul. It will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver that has a gross towing capacity of 2,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. If you plan on doing any towing you will also need wiring, # C56220 for models with LED taillights and # C56222 for models without. For a ball mount you can use # C45521, pin and clip # PC2, and a properly...

  • Wiring harnesses for the 2011 Kia Soul such as the Curt # C56222 that fits versions without LED lights can certainly be re-installed in a different vehicle so long as that other vehicle is compatible. As it happens the 2015 Soul can use this same trailer wiring harness so it will work for you. I suggest you use dielectric grease like # LT37534 to help protect the connections from moisture and dirt. However, the hitches for the 2011 and 2015 model years are NOT the same so you...

  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and for a 2012 Kia Soul with LED tail lights, you will need to use wiring harness # 118637. This harness will need to be hardwired into the vehicle using the included circuit tester to find the appropriate wires on the vehicle to tap into. It also requires a direct connection to the vehicle battery to power the trailer lights. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • Yes, the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, is recommended for use with your 2012 Kia Soul. If your bikes do not have a horizontal top frame tube to position the bike level enough for ground clearance on the bike rack you will need an adapter bar, like the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT. I linked a review video that will help you determine if this bar is needed for your specific bike. I added a link to all of the trunk mount bike racks that are available for your...

  • I did some research on your 2010 Kia Soul with the manual transmission and found that it can be flat towed. Models with automatic transmissions cannot be flat towed and must be towed with a tow dolly like part # RM-2000-1. I recommend checking the towing section of your owners manual for any other procedures or limitations that Kia may have to flat tow your vehicle. The Blue Ox Patriot, # BRK2012, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX2715, and the Alpha Tow Bar, # BX7365, are all...

  • The Yakima KingJoe 2 Trunk Mounted Bike Rack # Y02619 that you referenced is a confirmed fit on your 2014 Kia Soul 5-door. Thule also shows confirmed rack fits for your Soul as long as it is not the Mark II version. The note on the Yakima site refers to differing weight capacities of the 2- and 3-bike versions of the King Joe racks, the 2-bike # Y02619 and the 3-bike version # Y02620.
