WANTED : towing setup

I finally going to upgrade my motorhome to a sprinter based unit that will allow me to use a toad. I plan on using my current smart, a 2014 BoConcept Carbio. Does anyone have a base plate and tow bars that they no longer use and would be willing to sell.

Thanks

I don't think that the 2014 model year Smarts can be towed "four-down".
I believe that all became possible with model year 2016.
(We've got a Sprinter-based RV, and will be putting ours on an Aluma UTR-12 trailer... )

I own a 2014 Passion and have been flat towing for 3 years. Go to the site about towing and learn what is being done for towing. I think after 2016 you can not flat tow.

You can flat tow an ICE 2016 and 2017 453 but cannot flat tow the 453 EDs of any year.
