What model cars do you think are the best to flat tow.

Your towing question is not exclusive to the FR3 owners.

You might want to scan the forum called towing, toads etc.

Also, if you think you have a particular vehicle in mind, enter it in the search box in the upper right corner of this website and see what's there.

We've towed both a CRV and a GMC Terrain. Both work fine. CRV is no longer towable,

I just purchased a fiat Abarth--- reason; lightweight to get better mileage in motorhome it weighs only 2450, gets 32-38 mpg and is a blast to drive. only way you know you are pulling it is to check the rear camera. REALLY !!

I have to get all the tow work done for my Hyundai Veloster. Anyone know of a good place to have the work done in So Cal? Also how much should I expect to spend on it?

Where in SoCal are you?

You can expect to pay anywhere from $900+ for parts (baseplate, tow bar + any wiring that may be needed. We have the Blue Ox set up. You'll also need a brake supplement for the Hyundai (just about every state requires them). I installed a SMI unit in our CRV and it works great. These may run around $1000 up. You can always get good deals on all you need. Just need to shop around.
