Fiat 500

Has any one purchased a Fiat 500 for dingy. What model? Any suggestions on equipment? Where to go to get installation? Would like a convertible with manual trans.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I haven't heard of any Fiat toads but the Remco guide lists those with manual transmissions as towable. http://www.royrobinsonrv.com/images/...yGuide2012.pdf

I just finished equipping a fiat 500 for a friend of mine to tow behind his class c on sprinter chassis. He went with all roadmaster towing equipment. Falcon all terrain tow bar and removeable brackets and an invisibrake. Worked out really well and fairly easy to work on. If you have any questions let me know. I can direct you to grommet locations and such.

Towed a 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, 5-Speed Stick for the last 3 Years. Aprox. 4000 Miles.
Never a Problem. Used Road Master Base Plate and Tow Bar. I went with the Ready Brake System because it was Reasonable and their was Not Any Electric Components to cause Problems.
Enjoyed Towing and Driving this Fiat.
I Just Listed My Fiat in the Classified Section. Check it Out. Buyer able to Purchase a Complete Toad, Hook Up in Ten Minutes and Drive Down the HYW. Safely.
GOOD LUCK Rewingjack

You may want to consider a different car. The statistics quoted by one of the major reviewers rate the Fiat "the most unreliable car on sale in the US". I'm sure many people disagree, but a neighbor of ours certainly agrees. He sold his after 6 months' ownership.
