Can 2016 Honda CR-V Be Towed Behind a Motorhome


Is there a tow bar base plate available for a 2016 Honda CR-V? Will the 2014 etrailer brand base work on a 2016 model?


Helpful Expert Reply:

According to the 2016 Honda CR-V owner's manual, the vehicle isn't capable of being flat towed, so our vendors don't offer base plates for it. In order to tow the vehicle behind a motorhome, you can use a tow dolly if the vehicle is front wheel drive (FWD).

For a tow dolly, I'd recommend the Foldable Kar Kaddy SS from Demco, part # DM9713045. The Kar Kaddy SS has a weight and tread width capacity that are compatible with your CR-V, so the vehicle will work perfectly with it. The dolly has hydraulic disc brakes, so a brake controller won't be necessary to actuate them and the dolly can be folded so it takes up less space for storage or at the campsite.

If the CR-V is AWD, you'll need to tow it on a car trailer.
