i have a 1991 Miata with a manual 5 speed tranny. reading the above post I see it is possible. How hard is it to flat tow with a Class A. Also do you have to do anything with the tran oil and rear end?

I change my tranny oil every year, diff every other year. Diff isn't doing anything different.

As far as towing you need the towbars as level as possible. You may have to get another hitch attachment that will lower the towbars.

Flat towing Miata

I got a lot of help thru this forum when setting my Miata (2007) up for flat towing, so here's my two cents worth:

The only tow bar mounting bracket out there is from Roadmaster, but it worked great. Really a nice kit, fit perfectly, and seems like a good quality setup. I needed an adapter for use with a Demco tow bar, but that works perfectly as well. I changed my transmission oil and the differential oil (used Royal Purple for extra peace of mind) and towed the car around a little in testing. No problems, so far, so we're planning our first trip in a week or so.

Someone mentioned the wireless lights. I ordered a set of those last, wired and connected the plug-in adapter (transmitter), and was, again, amazed at how well this has gone together. I'm expecting a lot of battery usage, so plan on using rechargeables, but otherwise very satisfied with them.

I have a 2009 Miata 6 speed the book states it cannot be towed. Do you have to set up different?

No. There is only ONE set up.

If you will take another look at your book, it makes NO differentiation between the Automatic transmission, which CANNOT be towed, and the Manual transmission, which in the opinion of those towing it, is VERY towable.

I towed a 2010 6-speed over 16,000 mines and have now towed a 2012 6-speed over 18,000 miles.

I have helped 100+ owners (many in this forum) to get their Miatas flat towable. PM me if you want more information.
