Can you tell me what I need to tow 4 down a 2001 Honda Accord behind my Class C Motorhome?
asked by: Albert Z
You will need the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, item # 1545-1, to start with. You will also need a Tow Bar. I have two recommendations. We have a base plate installation video that should be helpful, see link.
First, if you are towing from a hitch ball at the rear of your Class C Motorhome, I would recommend the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar - 5,000 lbs, item # RM-020, along with a set of Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnects, item # RM-201, which allows removal of the tow bar without unbolting it each time. If you are towing from a receiver hitch at the rear of your motorhome, I would recommend the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - 6,000 lbs, item # RM-520, which makes hookup and unhooking much easier and comes with the quick disconnect hardware needed to remove the tow bar from the towed vehicle.
You will also need a set of safety cables, item # RM-643, would be a good choice for your vehicle and either of the tow bars recommended above.
Finally, you will need a tail light solution for your 2001 Honda Accord. If you will be towing infrequently and running the wires each time is not an issue the E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit, 20 ft. Long Cord, item # EZT20B, would be a good choice. If you will be towing frequently or do not want to run the wires each time, I would recommend the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, item # RM-154, that installs on the vehicle and once installed is ready to plug and go each time you tow the vehicle. We have a video installation for you to review and detailed instructions, see links.
One other item you may want or need to consider is a braking system for the towed vehicle. I would recommend the Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System, item # RM-9400, which can be installed easily and is easily removed from and replaced in the vehicle. This braking system is proportional which means it will brake in conjunction with the braking force of the motorhome. The proportional system helps to conserve the brakes on the motorhome and the towed vehicle.
Before towing your 2001 Honda Accord you should follow all procedures listed under the Emergency Towing section of the owners manual.
