2017 Subaru Crosstrek Manual Transmission Base Plate and Tow Bar Options


Is this the only option to tow my 2017 Crosstrek? And besides the Falcon towbar, will any of the other towbars work with this base plate?


Expert Reply:

As long as you have a manual transmission on your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek you can use the Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 52922-1A which is compatible with Falcon 2 # RM-520, Stowmaster # RM-501 or # RM-504, Falcon # RM-522, Sterling # RM-576, or BlackHawk 2 # RM-422.

Another base plate option is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX3620. This baseplate is compatible with the Alpha # BX7365, Aladdin, Avail # BX7420, or Acclaim # BX4330.

Let me know if you'd like recommendations for supplemental braking, wiring, or adapters to complete a flat towing system. If you have the AWD with automatic transmission, your only option to tow the vehicle is to use a trailer with all 4 wheels off the road.
