I was going to install my baseplate on my vehicle, but due to time and weather I decided to have my mechanic do it. He also has an autobody shop, so he has familiarity with body work. The instructions were detailed. If it takes about 3 hours, it will have cost me $240 for my mechanic to do it. The $1,200 cuff quote sounds pretty steep to me.

My guy is in Northern VA, so it's a haul from where you are, but he has installed a few of these on various vehicles. If you want his contact info, let me know by sending me a PM.

Ffarm, sounds like you have a winner! I just finished wiring my Honda and hooked up the breakaway for my RVi Brake 2. Everything (baseplate, wiring, breakaway, battery charge kit) took me 3 days for a variety of reasons: inexperience, apprehension of breaking something, needed a tool, and inexperience. I have to now test everything-Florida and then Texas for a few weeks.
