Your ability to successfully flat tow the vehicle will depend on which transmission it's equipped with.

According to my research, the 2014 Elantra GT can be flat towed with all four wheels down only if it's a manual transmission model. Hyundai has a very specific procedure that needs to be followed, so be sure to consult the recreational towing section of your owner's manual.

Automatic transmission equipped models must be towed on a tow dolly like part # RM-2050-1.

For the manual transmission model, you'd use the # 521632-1 base plate kit, and the Falcon # RM-520 Tow Bar would be an excellent choice. You'll also need safety cables like part # RM-643.

To wire your vehicle so the taillights work along with those of the RV, the easiest option would be a magnetic tow lamp like # RM-2120. The lamps are simple to install, and would remain completely independent of the wiring system of the towed vehicle, so no splicing or cutting is required.

You'll also need a supplemental braking system. From what I understand Denning motorhomes have air brakes so you want the Air Force One, part # SM99243. It doesn't cause false braking on your Hyundai like some other systems will have.

I'll also link you to some flat towing articles that I hope you'll find helpful.
