I have attached a list of parts below that you will need to flat-tow your 2018 Fiat 500 Abarth. Please note, Demco does not make a set of base plates for this vehicle but you can still use your Demco Excali-Bar III Non-Binding Tow Bar part # DM9511013 with the adapter listed below.

Demco Tow Bar Adapter for Roadmaster Base Plates part # DM9523001
Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit part # 522013-1A
Curt Towed-Vehicle RV Harness part # C58911
SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System part # SM99251
Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751455

The Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit is a custom fit so minimal modifications are required and it has removable arms while not in tow (see photo). The Curt Towed-Vehicle RV Harness is the only plug and play flat-tow wiring harness for your 500 Abarth and the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System is the best supplemental braking system on the market that will be completely hidden once installed.

Finally, you may or may not need to use a high-low adapter. In order to determine if there is a need to use one you will want to measure from the ground to the center of the base plate kit on the vehicle and compare that distance to the measurement from the ground to the center of the trailer hitch on the motor home. If this distance is not within 3" of one another then you will want to use a high-low adapter which I have attached a list of for you in addition to several other review videos on the above products.
