Expert Reply:

There are parts available that will allow you to flat tow a 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport. But to determine if it can be flat towed you will need to check the owners manual in the towing or recreational towing sections to see if it can be flat towed and if there are any special procedures or requirements.

If you can flat tow it then you would start with base plates. You can use the Demco kit, # DM9518218. Next you will need a tow bar. I recommend the Commander II, # DM9511012. This is a motor home mount tow bar that also includes safety cables so you will not have to purchase cables separately.

You will also need a lighting solution. The easiest solution is the Roadmaster # RM-2120 that will fit at the top of the rear hatch. You will not have to cut into the vehicle wiring to use this lighting kit.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking on the vehicle being flat towed. One of the easiest systems to set up and use is the Even Brake proportional system # RM-9400. It will apply the Captiva brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the easiest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles. You will also need stop light switch kit # RM-751425 for the braking system to work properly.

Be sure to consult your Captiva owners manual for specific information on flat towing the vehicle. I have also included some helpful links to our series of help articles on flat towing for you.
