Equipment Recommendations for Flat Towing 2020 Nissan Versa w/ Manual Transmission  


Good morning, can you supply me with a list of your products needed to flat tow a 2020 Nissan Versa S manual shift behind our motorhome? Also are there any certified installers in/or close to Central PA? Thanks


Expert Reply:

If your 2020 Nissan Versa is a 4 door sedan that's not equipped with the factory fog light option, we do have a base plate kit that'll work for you.

I'd recommend the Roadmaster # RM27FR base plate kit, which features removable draw bars for a clean look when the vehicle isn't being flat towed. For a tow bar, go with the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain, part # RM-522. The Falcon All Terrain won't bind up if the surface the motorhome and vehicle are sitting on isn't perfectly flat, which makes disconnecting the vehicle from the tow bar much easier. The tow bar also self-centers, which makes attaching the tow bar much easier, because your Versa won't need to be perfectly lined up behind the motorhome in order to connect everything.

You'll also need a taillight wiring harness and a supplemental braking system. For wiring, I'd recommend a diode system like the Roadmaster # RM-152-1676-7 and for a braking system, I'd recommend the Brake Buddy # HM39494. A portable system like the Brake Buddy wouldn't involve a costly and time consuming installation.

As far as installers go, on the product page for the base plate kit I recommended there's a link for locating a nearby installer. Just input your zip code, and you'll be shown a listing of local installers.
