Base Plate Installer Recommendation

Looking for installation of base plate and lights package in the Southeast Michigan area, preferably the suburbs of Detroit. Anyone know any good places to go? Looking at purchasing a 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Thanks

Ron

A local body shop would be able to do it. It would also most likely to be cheaper than an RV dealer or a truck shop.

I had a local truck accessories shop do my baseplate, lighting kit, breakaway kit, and braking kit!

I would second the bit about trying to get a local body shop to do the work, 80% of a baseplate install is pulling and replacing body panels which body shops do every day.

Check with General RV, several locations in the Detroit Metro area. They do a lot of them.

Places that install trailer hitches can usually install baseplates and wiring as well. Larger UHaul franchises can do this work.

If it isn't too far away for you, Mitch's Welding and Hitches in Maumee OH --just outside of Toledo-- has a good reputation. I believe they are an authorized dealer for both Roadmaster and Blue Ox.
