To flat tow your 2012 Honda Accord behind your RV you will first need base plates, # BX2254. But the way that these base plates are spaced once installed on the vehicle prohibits the use of the Acclaim tow bar. But you can use the Adventurer tow bar # BX7322 which costs less than the Acclaim but does not come with safety cables. To add safety cables you can use # RM-643.

Next you will need a lighting solution. You can use a simple magnetic kit such as # RM-2120 which is easy to set up and use or, for a more permanent solution, you can use a diode kit such as # RM-15267.

You may also need a high/low adapter to keep the tow bar level. I have linked a help article showing how to measure and a link to the high/low adapters we carry.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking on the vehicle being flat towed. One of the preferred systems for our installers and what I recommend is the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO proportional system, # SM99251. It will apply the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Be sure to consult your vehicle 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.
