Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V

Question:

will this base plate work on a 2014 honda crv, part no 521567-1

asked by: Charlie


Expert Reply:

Yes, I checked with Roadmaster and base plates # 521567-1 are listed as a fit for the 2014 Honda CR-V, all models, but excluding models that have a brushguard or extra bumper trim package.

You will also need a compatible tow bar. The Falcon 2, # RM-520, is a popular option for CR-V owners. You will also need some safety cables like # RM-643.

In addition to the above items you will also need to get a lighting system. I recommend a simple magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A because with it you will not have to cut into the vehicle wiring at all.

Check your owners manual because you may need to pull fuses to flat tow the vehicle. There will also be other information on recreational towing of the vehicle in the owners manual that is important. If you do have to pull a fuse every time you flat tow the vehicle I recommend using a fuse bypass, # RM76511, to avoid having to pull the fuse every time. With the bypass once it is installed you just have to flip a switch.

Finally, most states require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being flat towed. A very simple type is the Blue Ox AutoStop, # BX88100. It applies the CR-V brakes when the towing vehicle is slowing down. I have included some helpful links on flat towing for you to view.
