1. Look for used cars that are already equipped for flat towing. This can save you money on installation costs and ensure that the car is compatible with your towing setup.
2. Consider smaller, lighter cars as they tend to be more affordable and easier to tow. Look for models with manual transmissions, as they are often less expensive than automatics.
3. Research the towing capacity of your vehicle and make sure it can safely tow the weight of the car you plan to flat tow. Overloading your towing setup can be dangerous and cause damage to your vehicle.
4. Check with your insurance provider to make sure your policy covers flat towing. Some policies may require additional coverage or have restrictions on towing certain types of vehicles.
5. Don’t forget to factor in maintenance and repair costs when budgeting for your flat tow vehicle. Look for models with a good reputation for reliability and consider purchasing an extended warranty for added peace of mind.
