If you're planning on flat towing your 2015 Mini Cooper S Convertible you'll need a tow bar, tow bar wiring kit, base plate, breaking system, and safety cables. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000lbs Item # RM-525. This tow bar has a large hookup radius makes connecting a breeze at any angle, even if your vehicle isn't perfectly lined up with your RV.

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This kit will tie into your vehicle's existing wiring to control your tail lights instead of running magnetic lights to the back of your vehicle every time you want to tow.

Base Plate: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # BX1307. This base plate has removable arms that will provide a clean look when not towing your vehicle.

Braking System: Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System - Proportional Item # BLU37TR. You'll need to install a 12v outlet # RM-9332 to power this unit. The The Patriot 3 ensures that the brakes in your towed car are activated at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your RV and can be pulled out and stored when not in use.

Safety Cables: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 3,500lbs - Qty 2 Item # C80136. The coils on these cables will help prevent them from dragging on the ground and being damaged.

You will need to read your owner's manual to ensure your model is flat tow capable and follow any steps required to get your vehicle flat tow ready.
