Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport Behind a Motor Home


what Chevrolet captiva can be towed four wheels down behind a motorhome

There are parts available that will allow you to flat tow a 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport. But to determine if it can be flat towed you will need to check the owners manual in the towing or recreational towing sections to see if it can be flat towed and if there are any special procedures or requirements.

If you can flat tow it then you would start with base plates. You can use the Blue Ox base plates, # BX3332, that you have referenced. Next you will need a tow bar. I reocmmend the Aventa LX, # BX7445. This is a motor home mount tow bar that also includes safety cables so you will not have to purchase cables separately.

You will also need a lighting solution. The easiest solution is the EZ mount kit # EZT20B that will fit at the top of the rear hatch. You will not have to cut into the vehicle wiring to use this lighting kit.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. Since the Aventa is a motor home mount tow bar, you can use the Blue Ox AutoStop, # BX88100. When the motor home slows down, the Captiva will push forward, pulling a cable that in turn pulls the brake pedal on the Jeep, slowing it.

Be sure to consult your vehicle owners manual to make sure it can be flat towed and for any special procedures and requirements. I have included two helpful links on flat towing for you.
