Parts Needed to Tow a 2015 Honda Fit Either Flat Towing or on a Tow Dolly


do I need other parts with the roadmaster RM-520 to tow a honda fit 2015.


Expert Reply:

In addition to the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 you'll also need a base plate kit, wiring, a supplemental braking system, and likely a high-low adapter to flat tow your Fit.

According to my research a 2015 Honda Fit cannot be flat towed according to Honda. However, you'll want to consult your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle is able to be flat towed without damaging it.

If the Fit must be towed on a dolly you can use the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2050-1.

If you find that it can be flat towed with all 4 wheels on the ground the Falcon 2 tow bar is a great choice. The base plate kit that will pair nicely and fit the Honda is # RM-521569-4. This kit works with the Honda fit if it has a manual transmission. If your has the CVT automatic transmission you'll need to use # BX2261 with the adapter # RM-031.

To power the Honda's lights while flat towing I suggest the diode kit # RM-15267. This will use the vehicle's tail lights by connecting to the RV's and includes the cord to go between the two. You'll need to pull fuses in order to flat tow the Fit. To make this easier we have Fusemaster Fuse Bypasses # RM76511 and # RM76512.

For a supplemental braking system the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251 is a favorite around here because of how reliable it is and it's easier to install than many other permanently installed systems.

Finally, you'll likely need a high-low adapter. I've attached an article to help you determine the correct rise or drop your setup requires. I've also linked our selection of adapters for you to look at once you know what you need.

In addition to my recommendations I've linked some articles on flat towing that you may find helpful.
