Ive used blue ox for my last 2 base plates. I like them hidden and blue ox had some nice ones for my models. Ever manufacturer has a slightly different solution for each model vehicle so look at them all for your vehicle.

on my 2012 jeep Rubicon the ones that looked good and work with tow bar is great,they are road master.the only thing i dont like is the safety cable and wire for jeep and motor home.the wire is a coil wire that is really tight,they said it would stretch out.i don't think so,a lot of pressure on plug ins.all in all this system works good.adjusted cable for braking 2 times until i had it right.so when you hit brakes on motor home light comes on fast.if i could help you with anything else just ask me ill try to answer them.you can not back up with this tow bar,found myself on dead end road one time and wife started laughing.so i unhooked her the jeep.i just got to think more she says????????????? Pete

We are liking our ReadyBrute tow bar and brakes. The little Subaru Impreza is hard to feel going down the road. wouldn't know it's back there without the camera.
