Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500  


I would like to flat tow my 2015 Chevrolet 3500 HD dually behind my motorhome. It is a four-wheel drive and loaded it weighs 13,500 lbs. Do you currently have a tow bar configuration for this vehicle?


Expert Reply:

Yes, we do have a tow bar that is capable of towing your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually. It is the Blue Ox Apollo Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount item # BX7470. This tow bar mounts to a 2-1/2" hitch and has a 15,000 lbs weight capacity. The non-binding latches make it easy to disconnect no matter what the angle or terrain you are on. It includes safety chains.

You're also going to need a base plate kit, wiring kit, and a supplemental braking system. You could possibly need a high low adapter. I think you will be good because of your Silverado's ride height but I am going to link the help article just to be safe.

Base Plate Kit: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms item # BLU22QR. This base plate kit is custom fit and bolts directly to your Silverado. The tabs are removable.

Wiring Kit: Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - 7-Wire to 6-Wire Straight Cord item # RM-152-98146-7. This complete kit includes everything you need to connect your RV's tail, brake, and turn signal lights to your truck. The diodes prevent feedback and wire your truck to operate as a combined system. It includes a 7-way to 6-way straight adapter cord.

Supplemental Braking System: I recommend the Brake Buddy Stealth Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39530. It's a one time setup that bolts underneath the driver's seat and comes with a battery charger to keep your battery from draining while towing your Silverado.
