Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2020 Nissan Versa  


Hello Which products tow bar, base plate, cables, light kit, etc would fit my 2020 Nissan Versa S manual transmission for flat tow behind my Mercedes Sprinter Thor SS 24 ? Thanks


Expert Reply:

To flat tow a vehicle requires at minimum, base plates, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. The first thing to do is refer to your 2020 Nissan Versa's owners manual to identify if your specific vehicle can be safely flat towed.

For base pates: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX1856.

Tow Bar: Blue Ox Avail Non-Binding Tow Bar, # BX7420. This includes your needed Safety Cables.

Wiring Solution: The Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 4-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit, # RM-15247 for a permanent installation. Or the Custer Wireless LED Tow Bar Light - Weatherproof - Magnetic Base, # LIW-LDTL-7B for a moveable option.

Supplemental Braking: The Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System, # HM39524 for a moveable from vehicle to vehicle option. Along with the BrakeBuddy Towed Vehicle Battery Charge Kit, # BB54FR Or, if you choose a permanent arrangement, the Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play, # SM99251.

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.
