Complete Flat Towing Setup For A 2020 Chevrolet Sonic


We have a 2014 Thor ACE 30.1 motor coach and we just bought a 2020 Chevy Sonic hatchback to flat tow. I would like some help in figuring out what we need to safely flat tow the Sonic. Also would need to find an installation place. Would someone be able to help us out? Thanks in advance.

Sure thing!

For your 2020 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, you're going to need:

-A base plate kit, Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1703,

-A tow bar, the Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar for Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates # C26FR,

-A wiring kit, Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit w/ 7-Way to 6-Wire Connector # RM-152-LED-7 with the fuse bypass # RM76512, # RM76511 & # RM76511.

Those 3 fuse bypasses are only for models with keyless entry, if your Sonic does not have keyless entry then you only need one # RM76511.

Finally, you're going to need a braking system, Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 with the stop light switch # RM-751457.

As far as finding an installation place goes, what you can do is click on the "Installer Locator" on the product page (shown in the attached image), and enter your city's ZIP code. From here, it will display a list of local installers that are qualified to install all of these parts for you.
