Just upgraded to a '16 Passion. Trade-in deal was insulting, so I hopefully can sell the '13 and come out a little ahead. Both are equipped to tow behind. Happy to find the '16 at a great price and not have to pay to install the baseplate and wiring. My luck, though, that I have Roadmaster tow equipment and the new one is Blue Ox. Fortunately, adapters are a lot cheaper than starting from scratch.

Bought 02May19 in Denver for $11,000 plus tax. 13,200 miles. Included Blue Ox tow adapter, wiring, breakaway switch, and battery cut-off switch worth $1500 installed. I was happy to find one equipped just right for my needs.

Nice find and sorry to hear about the trade-in offer.

But, I have to disagree with the title. I’m happy to have my 2 smarts. No such thing as too many. Lol.

Hopefully your 453 is a Dual Clutch Transmission (6-speed) because the 5-speed manual transmission and electric 453 models are not approved to be flat towed.
You bet. Like I said above, it came equipped with Blue Ox baseplate adapters and wiring plus battery disconnect switch and electrical feed-through with power cord inside for an auxiliary brake unit. My only problem is that I was all Roadmaster with the older Smart. Fortunately, I found some BO adapters to install on the ends of my RM towbar.
