Recommended Flat Towing Equipment For A 2017 Hyundai Veloster


Can you give me a list of parts I will need to tow my 2017 Hyundai Veloster manual trans behind my Class C E450 Motorhome?


Expert Reply:

To flat tow your 2017 Hyundai Veloster you would need a tow bar, base plate, tow bar wiring, braking system, and safety cables. You'll also need to refer to your owner's manual to ensure that your vehicle is able to be flat towed and follow any preparation steps it has listed to safely tow your vehicle. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar: etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plates - 2" RV Mount - 6K # e44ZR. This tow bar features non-binding latches to make disconnecting from the base plates a breeze on any terrain. This tow bar has safety cables included so you won't have to purchase any separately.

Base Plate: Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 521633-1. These crossbar-style base plates have removable arms to provide a nice clean look when not towing your vehicle.

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This diode kit allows you to use your Hyundai Veloster's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV and includes a 7-wire to 6-wire Flexo-Coil electrical cord and 6-way socket.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # HM39524. This system offers intense, emergency braking or steady, smooth braking in a single portable system. Easily switch between proportional or full braking using the remote from the cab of your motorhome. The included charge line kit will ensure that your Veloster's battery doesn't drain while you tow.

Safety Cables: The tow bar recommended above has these included so you won't need to purchase additional cables.

Typically I also recommend a high/low adapter to keep your tow bar level while flat towing your vehicle. The recommended tow bar above comes with an adjustable head that tilts up or down 3" to keep your tow bar parallel with the road during towing and the shank has a built-in 1-1/2" rise or drop for additional adjustability. If you need a larger rise/drop then you can refer to the attached help article to determine the correct fit for your needs.
