Honda base plate install

I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for having a base plate installed in the Orlando area? Or should I just buy it on line and do it myself? The car is a 2015 Honda FIT, standard trans. It has 38 miles on it so wife will kill me if I get a scratch on it! Thanks for suggestions

You can go to roadmasterinc.com and see what is involved on the installation but if you have never don one this one is not a easy install for the first time.
I don't think I would use Campingworld.
I do all of my installations, the hardest part is the cutouts in the grill but on some cars it is easy to remove the plastic grill if it is small like the Honda and reinstall when you remove the brackets when you trade.

I think La Mesa in Sanford sells tow sets and I like their service dept. Orlando RV in winter park has a decent reputation for service but has a fairly small shop so getting an appointment might be an issue.

Let us know what you find out. From what I've seen putting the base plate on involves removing a lot of the front bits of the car, so if you're not used to that kind of stuff it could be challenging.
