We have base plate kits for your 2007 Honda Fit like the Roadmaster part # 521558-1 which is a confirmed fit but none that will work with a Towmatic tow bar. We have tow bars and other components that would work well though.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

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 II, # BRK2019, 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.

I have a 2007 Honda Fit with a manual Trans.I have a Roadmaster 5750 tow bar with a crossbar. What do you have as a nameplate that will work with that tow bar and Honda Fit?

I wasn't able to locate a Roadmaster model 5750 tow bar. Is there a model name printed anywhere on the bar? I can say though that the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 521558-1 Jameson recommended is compatible with any Roadmaster branded tow bar, so there shouldn't be any kind of fit issue.
