We do indeed have a base plate. If your Countryman is a base model, use the Roadmaster # RM-521881-4. If you have the S model that isn't a John Cooper works model, use # RM-521883-5. A base plate that is compatible with the John Cooper Works model isn't available.

According to my research, if your Countryman is front wheel drive (FWD) with a manual transmission, it is capable of being flat towed without modification. If it's FWD with an automatic transmission, it needs to be towed using a dolly such as # RM-2050-1. If it's an AWD model, it'll need to be towed on a trailer, regardless of which transmission it has.

If the vehicle is capable of being flat towed, you'll need a few other items in addition to the base plates and tow bar to complete the setup, including safety cables, a wiring solution, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. I'll link you to some help articles that will explain further. If you need suggestions or have questions, please feel free to reply.
