Flat Towing Equipment Recommendations For A 2020 Ford Escape SE AWD  


Can I tow behind Motorhome a 2020 Ford Escape SE ALL WHEEL DRIVE?


Expert Reply:

There are a few different transmissions models for the 2020 Ford Escape SE AWD so you will need to refer to your owner's manual to ensure you have the correct transmission to flat tow your vehicle and ensure you're following all necessary steps to get your vehicle flat tow ready. If you are capable of flat towing you'll need a tow bar, base plate, tow bar wiring kit, braking system, and safety cables. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000lbs Item # RM-522. This tow bar has a non-binding feature to make hooking up and disconnecting super easy on uneven surfaces.

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

Base Plate: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM39FR. This direct-connect base plate make attaching to the tow bar simple and the removable arms provide a clean look for when you're not towing your vehicle.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39524. This braking system comes with a battery charger to keep your vehicle's battery charged while towing and only takes a few minutes to set up and get on the road.

Safety Cables: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 5,000lbs - Qty 2 Item # C80151. The coils will help prevent the cables from dragging on the ground and getting damaged.
