I just bought a 2015 Honda CRV. This vehicle is made to tow. The steering wheel doesn't lock so you don't have to disconnect the battery. I use a tow dolly but it can be towed flat as well

mudman, are you sure your CRV is a 2015? I was under the impression that the 2015 CRV's with the cvt tranny were not able to be towed 4 down. 2015 Honda's aren't even listed in the MH Dingy Towing Guide anymore, as Honda says their cvt tranny cannot be towed 4 down.

I'm thinking of getting a towing setup on my 4 door Jeep. Will my 2015 30ds be able to handle this?

Iplayjem my setup on my JK is a aftermarket off road front bumper that has D-Ring ears. And a Tomken machine tow bar. About $250 for bumper and about $125.00 for the tow bar. Tomken machine also makes the front bumper but they ask about $500.00 for there bumper. I've towed my 2010 Jeep 4-door Rubicon all over the US with this set up with no issues or problems. Only thing l can't help with is if the FR3 30DS can hack it. When I had that set up I towed with a 1998 Fleetwood Flair with a 454 and it hacked it just fine with a average 9.8mpgs. I will find out in 4 more weeks if my 2015 FR3 30DS (JeNNY) can hack my current towing setup towing this jeepClick image for larger version

I am not sure about towing my CRV with all 4 wheels on the ground.I use a tow dolly and have no problems. I was told by a salesman the CRV was designed to tow with 4 wheels down. I didn't check it out because I use a Dolly. The CRV EX-L does dot have an ignition lock which is great

When the wife and I were looking at the CRV to tow four down, we passed on the 2015 and bought a 2014 because the 2015 is NOT flat towable because of the tranny.

Iplayjems... Just keep in mind that the FR3 30DS has a towing capacity of 5000#.

Just got back from my 1st test tow with Big Bird sitting on the car trailer. JeNNY didn't even know anything was hitched up to her.
