  1. Anyone have a good suggestion for a convertible to tow, preferably rag-top as opposed to hard shell? Four-down towables in this class are extremely hard to identify. My "secondary user" Chris would love to tow her 2008 Mazda Miata manual rear-drive, but none of the towing guides list it, and there are no off-the-shelf baseplates for it. However, Blue Ox offered to fabricate one if she would drive the car to Nebraska (from Philadelphia) for fitting...argggh. The Mitsubishi Eclipse looks like a good substitute...and at least one baseplate has been found for it...but likewise, no Mitsubishi vehicles show up in any towing guide. She has heard sporadic anecdotes of people successfully towing Mazda Miata manuals - but with no baseplates on the market, no listing in towing guides, and no support in the owners manual - one has to wonder if it makes sense to try it. Suggestions/comments welcome for good rag-top dinghies! Thanks, Eric
  2. Cdubee, I just purchased a 2013 Kia Soul+ 6-speed manual for flat towing, encouraged by your success story. However, I'm worried that no Kia products are listed on the FMCA towing guide for 2012-2013. They only are listed for 2014-2016 model years (manual only of course). And interestingly...the 2010 and 2011 are listed by FMCA as towable, so the only non-listed model years are 2012-2013. Your case is the ONLY one I can find on any towing forum of successful towing of this vehicle four-down. Question for you and wolfe10 (moderator) and anyone else who can chime in: 1) Have you heard of any other 2013 Soul+ towing success stories? 2) Do you happen to know what changed in the Soul design between 2013 and 2014 that allowed the 2014 and later models to be listed as towable? 3) Have you or anyone monitoring this post talked directly to anyone from Kia about towing the 2013? Thanks!
