In order to flat-tow a 2019 Chevrolet Spark LS (Manual Transmission) with all four wheels on the ground behind a motorhome you are going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tail light wiring harness, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. There may also be a few other smaller components that are needed depending on options the vehicle is equipped with.

For a tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk is one of the best tow bars we offer. It has a non-binding and self-aligning design which makes for an extremely easy hookup. It also comes with safety cables and a wiring extension. This towbar is then compatible with the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit part # RM-523197-5. The Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit is a custom fit for your Spark and will provide you with removable arms which makes for a clean look while not in tow (see photo).

Then for a tail light wiring harness I recommend the Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs part # RM-155 because it does not require any splicing. In order to then make the harness compatible with the wiring extension on the Nighthawk tow bar you will need to cut off the 4-way and wire the 6-way connector which comes with the tow bar. The other end of the umbilical cord is a 7-way that plugs into your motorhome.

For a supplemental braking system, I recommend the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System part # SM99251. I like this system because it is a one time setup and everything will be hidden once installed. In order for this system to operate properly in your vehicle you will also need to use the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751480.

To summarize, I recommend using the following parts:

Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676
Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit part # RM-523197-5
Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs part # RM-155
SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System part # SM99251
Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751480
