FLAT TOWING PACKAGE

2016-2018 Ford Focus

The 2016-2018 Ford Focus's sleek, compact design makes it a popular model to flat tow behind a motorhome. Before you can hit the road with your Focus in tow, however, you'll need a few basic components, including base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, and a supplemental braking system. Fortunately, we've made it easy to get what you need, so you can hit the road without looking back. Check out our flat tow product recommendations for your vehicle below.

What Do I Need to Flat Tow My 2016-2018 Ford Focus?Every flat-towed vehicle requires the same 5 components: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, and a braking system.That said, there's plenty of variety in these products, plus additional parts that may be required for certain vehicles. You can also purchase optional covers, screens, and guards to protect your vehicle and flat towing components from wear and tear. We've put together packages for both the Ford Focus with adaptive cruise control and Hatchback ST models as well as the models with no adaptive cruise control. Check out both packages below.Some restrictions apply to certain models of the Ford Focus. See section "Flat Tow Restrictions and Installation Notes" below.

Flat Towing Package for 2016-2018 Ford Focus With Adaptive Cruise Control The parts to flat tow a 2016-2018 Ford Focus with adaptive cruise control are different than the parts needed to flat tow a 2016-2018 Ford Focus without adaptive cruise control. To flat tow a 2016-2018 Ford Focus with adaptive cruise control you'll need a base plate, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, supplemental braking system and possibly a high low adapter to tow level.For the base plate I recommend Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX2663 because of its removable bracket arms which gives it a nice clean look once installed...View full answer...

Best Complete Flat Towing System for 2016-2018 Ford Focus In order to flat tow your 2016-2018 Ford Focus without adaptive cruise control I recommend starting with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-524443-5. These base plates will give you a really clean look when installed and will work very well with the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights - RV Mount - 8K # RM-676. This tow bar is really nice with the integrated LED lights wiring connector and safety cables.To finish the wiring on your vehicle side, I recommend the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-152 which will splice into your Focus factory wiring to utilize it for a clean look while still protecting your vehicle electronics. . .View full answer...

Flat Tow Restrictions and Installation Notes

Restrictions: The Ford Focus should not be towed at speeds exceeding 70 mph. There are no distance restrictions when towing the vehicle. Please refer to owner's manual for more information.Check your owner's manual to confirm flat towing capability. The following Ford Focus models should not be flat towed:
  • Focus Electric
  • Focus ST
  • Focus RS
  • 1.0L EcoBoost®
  • I5 2.0L Automatic
Automatic Battery Disconnect Switch
Installation Notes: A common installation question we receive from customers regards the installation of the Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch from Roadmaster, which is required to flat tow Ford Focus models with automatic transmissions. While the vehicle's manual states to disconnect the negative battery cable during flat towing, the Automatic Battery Disconnect instructs that the solenoid be installed in line of the positive battery cable.The Automatic Battery Disconnect needs to be installed on the positive side of the battery so that the battery can still power certain aftermarket components needed for flat towing while cutting power to the OEM components. Aftermarket components such as supplemental braking systems typically pull power from the vechicle's battery. Some RVers also choose to run a charge line from their motorhome to their flat towed vehicle's battery while towing. Neither of these scenarios would work if the negative battery cable was disconnected during towing.Generally, vehicle manufacturers suggest removing the negative battery cable for safety reasons. Using hand tools to remove the positive battery cable without first disconnecting the negative battery cable can result in sparks flying if the tool simultaneously makes contact with the positive battery terminal and a ground location, such as the vehicle frame. Roadmaster's Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch allows you to avoid this dangerous situation and safely disconnect the battery with the simple flip of a switch.

Base Plates for 2016-2018 Ford Focus

Base plates are the custom-fit attachment points that install on the frame of your vehicle and allow you to connect a tow bar to your vehicle. This is the part of a flat towing setup that is truly vehicle specific and custom fit for a particular vehicle and style.

Tow Bars for 2016-2018 Ford Focus

Another necessary component of a flat towing setup is the tow bar. While tow bars are not a custom-fit component, it is important to make sure that the tow bar and base plates you choose for your Focus are compatible with each other. A good rule of thumb is to use a tow bar from the same manufacturer as your base plate kit. If you have base plates or a tow bar of one brand and wish to use a counterpart from a different manufacturer, you will likely need an adapter. Check out our base plate adapter table for help on choosing the correct product.Tow bars come in two styles: those that mount on the motorhome (hitch mount style) and those that mount on the vehicle (coupler style). For frequent RVers, motorhome-mounted tow bars are generally preferable. They provide a more stable connection, are easy to adjust, and do not require a separate coupler. On the other hand, those who RV less frequently may consider a vehicle-mounted tow bar for a more economical option.

Safety Cables for 2016-2018 Ford Focus

Safety cables are a necessary component of a flat towing setup. Keep the weight of your Ford Focus in mind when choosing safety cables, as safety cables come in a variety of capacities. Blue Ox and Demco typically include safety cables with their tow bars, making it easy to complete your flat towing setup. Both manufacturers also offer replacement safety cables. Some premium Roadmaster tow bars include safety cables, but most do not. Roadmaster offers a number of capacites and both coiled and straight cables for your flat towing setup. The coiled design helps keep the safety cables from dragging the ground, while straight cables work best with tow bars that have channels, or cable guides, for the safety cables to feed through.

Tow Bar Wiring Kits for 2016-2018 Ford Focus

It is important for your 2016-2018 Ford Focus to be wired for flat towing. To make sure your vehicle has functioning tail lights when towed, you have a few options. You can use the existing tail lights by installing a tow bar wiring kit that splices into your current wiring. You can also bypass your factory wiring by installing a bulb and socket kit that uses the vehicle's tail light housings. Finally, you can install a universal magnetic or trunk-mounted lighting kit to add additional lights to your vehicle specifically for towing.

Supplemental Braking System for 2016-2018 Ford Focus

Using a supplemental braking system, also called a tow bar braking system, helps make sure your towed Ford Focus slows down as your motorhome slows down. This helps reduce wear and tear on both your vehicle and your motorhome, as well as helps shorten the braking distance of your towing setup. It is also important to keep in mind that supplemental braking systems are required by law in many states. It is important to check the requirements for areas you will be traveling through.

Additional Flat Towing Components

To complete your 2016-2018 Ford Focus's flat towing setup, a few additional parts may be required or recommended. Some of these components, such as stop light switches and high-low adapters, ensure that your flat tow setup functions properly. Other accessories work to protect your vehicle from rocks and other road debris while your vehicle is being towed.Required AccessoriesVehicles with automatic transmissions may require a stop light switch with some braking systems (check fitguide to confirm). A stop light switch will activate the RV monitoring system and alert you when the brakes of your towed car are being applied. Roadmaster's Auto Battery Disconnect, required for Focus models with automatic transmissions, lets you easily disconnect your battery so that your vehicle can be towed behind your RV. A 12-volt outlet kit provides power to portable braking systems but is not required for fixed systems.
