Recommended Flat Towing Components For A 2010 Mini Cooper S


I have a 2010 Mini Cooper S and I need a complete kit, tow bar and base plate and wiring. Do you have this?


Expert Reply:

While there isn't a complete all-in-one kit I can still list all the parts you'll need to flat tow your 2010 Mini Cooper S:

Tow Bar: etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e44ZR. This tow bar is compatible with the baseplates you'll need and comes with safety cables included so that you don't have to purchase them separately.

Baseplate: Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 521877-1 (note: not compatible with Sport suspension or John Cooper Works).

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit w/ 7-Way to 6-Wire Connector # RM-152-LED-7. Your vehicle can not use a universal wiring kit so you'll need to drill into your tail light housing to install this bulb and socket kit.

Braking System: Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700. This installs permanently so that you only have to complete setup once. It activates when the brake lights do on your motorhome so there isn't any false breaking like you might get with a system that uses an inertia sensor.

Because your brake light switch wire isn't usable you will have to also install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit - Mini Cooper # RM-751440 to complete the installation of the # RM-8700.
