Whether you're brand new to flat towing or you're searching for your next towed vehicle, you probably have a lot of questions. We've compiled a list of our favorite vehicles to flat tow in 2020.
Plus, we're giving you access to the results from an exclusive survey of hundreds of RVers across the US, showing their favorite towed vehicles and more! (read on to find the report)

1. Jeep Wrangler

We'll put our "winner" right here at the top of the list, the Jeep Wrangler has been a favorite of RVers for decades, and for good reason! Not only are they iconic, they're extraordinarily functional, rugged, and an absolute breeze to set up for flat towing. No annoying gadgets getting in the way of you hitting the road, Jeeps (especially Wranglers) are about as simple as you're going to get.

2. Jeep Gladiator

Alright, alright, it's just a Wrangler with a bed... But we told you how much we love Jeep products for Flat Towing! Spoiler alert, this isn't the last Jeep on our list! Just like it's older brother, the Gladiator is a down-to-earth, rugged 4X4 that can really take a beating. Plus, the fold-down rear seats and truck bed create some really practical extra storage space!

3. Ford Edge ST (2019 or newer)

With its new facelift and redesign, the Ford Edge ST is a real looker on the road. Sporty, fun, and modern is what you get with this new lineup. Plus, they've been approved by Ford to flat tow! A slightly pricier option, but if you want something less rugged (like the two Jeeps before) and more sporty, the Edge ST is a fantastic choice.

4. Jeep Grand Cherokee

As promised, we have another Jeep! With a heavy dose of rugged jeep design, you get a more luxurious interior and sportier ride with the Grand Cherokee. Boasting technologies that its Wrangler/Gladiator counterparts can't match, you won't be short of gadgets and features to brag about around the campfire! 

2020 MSRP: from $32,150

5. Ford F-150

We're not going to weigh in on the Ford vs. Chevy debate, but we will say that when you think of words like "reliable, tried and true," or even "indestructible," the Ford F-150 likely comes to mind. With Ford's modern trucks featuring high-quality interiors and all the same durability of their trucks of old - you won't be left wanting more. The F-150 is simply a winning formula! (unless of course your heart beats for Chevy)

6. Chevy Equinox

Speaking of Chevy, the Equinox is a vehicle rising in popularity - especially in the world of dinghy towing. This is no surprise when you consider its relatively low price tag, simple technology, and good gas mileage. The equinox may not be the exciting option on this list, but it's going to get the job done! 

2020 MSRP: from $23,800

    Hi Aaron
    Is your Crosstrek All wheel drive? I loved my Subaru and it broke my heart to trade it for a Jeep. Let me know please because we want to get rid of this Jeep!
    Thanks Paula

  • Ronald Rippen

    I have a 2017 Buick Envision that tows effortlessly just like my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. With the TBD+ I just hook up without removing the ground cable on the Jeep and removing a couple of fuses on the Envision. I have not experienced any mechanical or electrical issues.

  • Kathryn Vogtmann

    can manual transmission Honda Fit be flat towed?

  • Aaron Walters

    Amazing that we have all these options in the RV park with us; but I get asked daily about my 2017 Subaru Crosstrek being flat towed.
