Looking for base plate installer in Albuquerque/Santa Fe area

Hey, we bought a new toad (2016 Edge) and need to have someone who does quality work install a Blue Ox base plate, tail light wiring, and an in-car battery disconnect switch in the Albuquerque or Santa Fe area.

Recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks.

If no one gives a specific place, I would suggest checking in with some of the local body shops. With the directions in hand, they have the correct equipment and expertise to accomplish this.

I did the Blue Ox install myself on my Honda. Did the SMI Airforce One also, coach & car.

Happy trails,
Rick Y

Tom's RV on Moon in Albuquerque has a very good reputation.

Body shop is a good choice. many cars require removal of front body parts to install base plate. Body shops are better able to do that part.
Good advice to bring the instructions. Last baseplate I had installed, directions were vague on one point. Shop called Blue Ox and got step by step by step info. I've had three done and usually under two hours start to finish.
Get an estimate first.

Look on Blue Ox web site--they list their authorized dealers/installers. That is how I found mine in Naples FL and they were $800 cheaper than the RV dealer I inquired at.
