Flat Towing Element behind RV

I would like to flat tow my 2005 Element EX automatic behind my RV. Is this possible? If not, I'll be selling the 2005 Element and buying a 5 speed 2008 or 2009 Element......

THANKS .... Mike

Yes! Honda "does not recommend" flat towing later than 05. I flat tow an 07 SC with a manual, and my friends have an 07 SC automatic that they flat tow. No troubles at all. Go to rv.net and read their forum.thousands of posts re flat towing, what others do,the use of tow dollies,etc. Hope that's helpful.

just make sure you follow Honda's instructions for towing automatics, which is something like running the transmission thru all the gears every 400 miles, or something like that.
