Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2016 Ford Edge Titanium


I have a RoadMaster Sterling Tow bar. What base plate kit do I need for my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium without active cruise control?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The base plate kit you need for your 2016 Ford Edge Titanium without active cruise control is the part # RM-524454-4. This will work well with your Roadmaster Sterling # RM-576.

For lighting we have the custom fit Hopkins Kit part # HM56011 which would work well for you.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies 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.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
