Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2019 Lincoln Navigator 4x4


Can I flat tow this vehicle and what equipment do I need?


Helpful Expert Reply:

From what I could find in the owners manual I located online you can only flat tow your 2019 Lincoln Navigator 4x4 if you have "Slow Climb Mode". If you have the slow climb mode then you will need at least 5 main parts to flat tow. Those parts are a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. I have included each of those parts below, along with a brief description of their purpose and a recommendation.

Base Plate Kit: This is a custom fit part that installs on your Navigator and provides the attachment point for your tow bar. I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-524457-5. This base plate kit is made in the USA and has a limited lifetime warranty.

Tow Bar: This is what will come from your motorhome and attach to the base plate kit. I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676. This tow bar is made in the USA, has a limited lifetime warranty and is compatible with the above recommended base plate kit. It also includes the safety cables, so you will not need to purchase those separately.

Tow Bar Wiring: This is what will let you connect your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights to your towed vehicle's lighting system. I recommend the Curt Universal Tail Light Wiring Kit # C63CR.

Supplemental Braking System: This is what will allow you to safely travel with and stop your Navigator. I recommend the Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # DM86VR. This will provide you with a system that gives you proportional braking that never has to be removed, replaced, or reset.

You may also need a high-low adapter to keep your tow set-up level. I have included a help article that goes over how to determine if an adapter is needed. I have also linked our selection of high-low adapters, so you can select the correct one if one is needed.

You will want to consult the owners manual for your 2019 Lincoln Navigator to ensure that you are doing everything that is recommended/required by the manufacturer for flat towing your Navigator.
