Hi Jim,
From the sound of your post, you should research your towing strategy to form an opinion based on fact. When towing anything, regardless of size, Safety is your primary concern. The attached guide will give you some good information on the subject so you can go down the road knowing that your toad is going to stay with you and not end up coming loose and jeopardizing the lives of others on the road. There are also laws in each State/Province that dictate what you can and cannot do. Please don't take this post the wrong way, but I could be one of the folks you meet going down the road.
Happy Safe Trails.

I have - I don't make long trips however; 200-300 miles is my max; No more than 65 mph.

Check out this site too...
Store : Remco

Honda doesn't certify but many people have done so including me. Follow the instructions to the T.

Jim, I tow a 2008 Civic 5-speed manual 4-down, but I have a road master baseplate installed and use a Sterling all-terrain tow bar. Most small trucks are body on frame...the civic is not. Good luck!

Safety first!! Loosten the purse strings and get a baseplate and towbar. You might find a good used towbar and aux braking system on eBay, then get a new baseplate to work with your towbar.
