Equipment Needed for Flat Towing 2020 Kia Soul


I Currently have Roadmaster all terrain. Tow bars I need all the equipment. To set up to tow my 2020 Kia Soul. I also need the invisibrake system. I have purchased from you before I made the mistake of getting rid of the car. For a larger car and now Im starting over except for the tow bars. So I will need something that will. Be able to utilize the Roadmaster All Terrain tow bar and then the base plate and everything that goes with it.

In my research, I've found that only the manual transmission equipped LX model of the 2020 Kia Soul can be flat towed but I'd highly recommend you confirm the flat towability of the LX manual transmission model with your Kia Dealer.

If you confirm that your vehicle can be flat towed, in addition to the towbar you already have, you'll need base plates, a wiring harness, safety cables, a braking system and possibly a high/low adapter.

For a base plate, I'd recommend the # RM-521643-5 along with the # RM-643 safety cables. For a wiring harness, use the # RM-15267 diode kit. The Roadmaster # RM-8700 Invisibrake would be a great choice. You'll also need a # RM-751000 stop lamp switch.

In the interest of safety, when base plate height and the receiver height on the motorhome need to be within 3 inches of each other so the tow bar is within 3 inches +/- of level. If it isn't, a high/low adapter that would place the receiver height within that range will be needed. According to Roadmaster, when installed the base plates sit about 12 inches above the ground, so you'll need an adapter to put the receiver height within 3 inches of that height.
