Expert Reply:

In order to determine if a vehicle can be flat towed and if there are any special requirements or procedures to do so you will want to consult the vehicle owners manuals of the vehicles you want to flat tow.

If you can flat tow either vehicle you will need 5 items: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking.

Base plates for the Cadillac SRX: # 3125-1.
Base plates for the Ford Edge: # 4408-1.

Compatible tow bar for either vehicle: Falcon # RM-520.

Safety cables for either vehicle: # RM-643.

Lighting for either vehicle: Magnetic kit # C-ATL20A.

For supplemental braking you can use the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251. Once installed you will not have to worry about it again. The only issue is that it fits in just one vehicle at a time.

I have included some helpful links to are series of FAQ articles on flat towing for you.
