Parts Needed for Flat-Towing 2002 Kia Sportage  


Parts needed for flat-towing a 2002 Kia Sportage 4x4?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Safe and legal flat towing of a vehicle behind a motorhome requires a few components, all of which are detailed in the linked article on the basics on flat towing. Additional articles are included too to help you with your selection of a braking system and high/low hitch adapter. Typically, a flat towing set-up includes a tow bar, high/low hitch adapter, safety cables, a wiring/lighting solution, and both base plates and a braking system for the towed car.

Starting with base plates, for your non-EX version you can use Roadmaster base plate kit # 2104-1. With it you can use their Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 and safety cables # RM-643. For a wiring/lighting kit I suggest the cost-effective and easy-install magnetic light kit # TL21RK; this and other options are shown on the linked page. For a braking system it is hard to beat the wireless and portable Patriot # BLU37TR from Blue Ox but other options are shown on the linked page.

For a high/low hitch adapter to keep your tow bar level you can refer to the linked page for items like # RM-048-8.
