Base plate

I'm in Central Florida, bought a new car wondering if anybody in the area can recommend somewhere to have a base plate installed.

Usually an RV Dealer's service can get it done. IMHO, stay away from Camping World. Where in central FL, are you?

The biggest problem you are going to have is scheduling. You might even try a body shop.

When I purchased my 2005 Jeep last Aug, I could not find anyone other than the RV places, I decided to do it myself. Wasn't that difficult on the Jeep, what kind of car do you need to install it on?

Steve, Give Rentz Trailer Sales a call. They are in Hudson and did mine last Sept. Good price and honest people. 727 863-2700. You can wait on it if you have the time or leave it and pick up later. I got there when they opened and was out by 1:00. They installed a Roadmaster base plate, diodes for the lights and all the wiring. I already had a Brake Buddy and a Falcon2 tow bar.

Not trying to change your mind, but take a look at the Roadmaster Off Road series (I'd go with the 10K hitch because you never know (either with their onebrake or a Air Force one).

We have been doing a LOT of research and this setup seems to give you the best bang for the buck.
