Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2


I am looking for a base plate and tow bar for my 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2. There are so many options and I am on a tight budget. Could you recommend a good combination for me?


Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 we have the Demco Tabless kit part # DM9519319 as a confirmed fit. Most of the other options do not fit the ZR2 models but this one does. Then you can use the Demco Commander II # DM9511012 as a tow bar.

For lighting we have the part # RM-15267. The diode kit that comes with this allows you to splice into the taillight wiring so that your RV controls the vehicle taillights and does not require drilling into the taillight housings. 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 # 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.
