Tow connection to the toad baseplate versus none

The Class C I am buying comes with a tow bar and a toad. I don't remember the brand of the bar. The toad has a rather large front bracket that you hook to. That is great but sometimes I may want to tow my wifes Cadillac SRX. A friend tows his srx and only had two non conspicuous connections protruding from the grill.

Is the type tow bar I am getting most likely incompatible with my friends set up.

Sorry I don't have more information now. I wil ltry to post a photo of the toad with the bracket.

it's less about the tow bar, and more about the specific vehicle mounting bracket that your caddy must have installed. most tow bar manufacturers have these for each model vehicle, then you choose the tow bar that fits your situation(weight). So, you might be able to use the existing tow bar if you have the correct vehicle bracket installed on the caddy that fits that model tow bar.
also, make sure that your caddy can be towed 4 wheels down.

That is a Roadmaster brand crossbar shown. The cross bar is held on with a couple of pins and is easily removable, it is part of the tow bar. The parts that it attaches to are the actual base plates which on some styles the outer parts can be removed leaving the "two non conspicuous connections protruding from the grill" visible.

Go to YouTube and enter "Roadmaster tow bar" and you will see many tow bar installations which will show how they work.

Go to this web site enter the year of your Caddy click on the Roadmaster bracket number and that will take you to a page with a picture of the kit and instructions, just make sure your tow bar is able to tow the weight.
