2022 Honda Civic Hatchback 6 speed manual flat tow

I would like to purchase and tow a 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback with the 6 speed manual. If anyone has towed the Honda Civic 6 speed in the past have you had success? I see eTrailer has made base plates for up to the 2021 Civic manuals?

Followup....

Did find a statement from Honda concerning 2019 Civic

Towing Behind A Motorhome
Models with continuously variable transmission

Your vehicle is not designed to be towed behind a motorhome. If your vehicle needs to be towed in an emergency, refer to Emergency Towing.

Improper towing such as towing behind a motorhome or other motor vehicle can damage the transmission.

Models with manual transmission

Your vehicle can be towed behind a motorhome. Perform the following procedure before towing your vehicle:
1) Shift to Neutral.
2) Release the parking brake.
3) Turn the ignition switch (or power mode) to ACCESSORY. Make sure the steering wheel does not lock.
4) Turn off all electrical devices. Do not use any accessory power sockets. This can prevent the battery from running down.


I would verify with Honda about 2020---2022 Models

As per page 447 of the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Owner's Manual:
Your vehicle is not designed to be towed behind a motor home. If your vehicle needs
to be towed in an emergency, refer to the emergency towing information.


It makes no distinction between manual or automatic transmission, just the blanket statement that it's not to be towed. Seems Honda is following Toyota and not approving any of it's vehicles for dingy towing.



However it did say that the Civic could be towed on a dolly.
