Flat tow a CR-V with a gas coach?

Anyone by any chance towing a 2012 - 2014 Honda CRV with a gas Outlaw or similar Ford (F53) gas Class A?

just made a deal on a brand new(ish) 2013 CRV for me to tow, but want to get the right drop receiver to keep everything level within specs.

(nice part is that the CRV already has the Blue ox base plate, fuse switch, and taillight wiring done:-)

Thanks

Yes, there are plenty of folks towing cars, Honda and other brands with Ford F53 chassis. Once you have your RV loaded as for a trip, measure the distance from the receiver to the ground to figure out the size of drop hitch you'll need. Try not to go too low, the drop hitch makes a heck of a plow entering and exiting gas stations and the like. Check the weight rating of your hitch and the weight of the CRV to make sure everything is O.K.

Towed a 2014 CRV when we had the Hurricane, most of the time didn't even know it was back there.

Any class A motorhome will have at least a 5000 lbs hitch installed and the CRV weighs much less then that; the height of the CRV is just perfect to most installed hitch on the market.

We're pulling a 2014 CR-V with no problems. Hitch height is fine. I don't even know the car is behind us.

We pulled a CRV behind a Winnebago (F 53 Chassis) for many years with no drop hitch needed.

I tow a 2012 CRV behind a 2013, 22,000 lb. chassis with no problem. My hitch is a little high, but I've done nothing about that and have no problems. The CRV cost's me about 1 mpg when towing, weighs 3400 lbs. according to the scale when I weighed the RV, and yes, I can tell it's back there.
