One step closer

Got the base-plate installed on the Chevy Sonic. This puts us another step closer to our full time lifestyle. Will be taking a test drive this week to test all the sytems, toad braking system, lights and such.

nose cover off and base-plate fitted

grill cutout needed

removable bar bracket

tow arm bar

Guardian Shield for protection

Looking gooood! Looks like a Roadmaster base plate? That Guardian Shield should do the job, it's almost bigger than your car! How easy is it to attach and remove the shield? We use the Protect A Tow and like it a lot, easy to put on and take off, and so far has done a great job protecting our toad. What are you pulling it with? Full-time! I'm green with envy, but I'll be able to join you in another couple years!

Easyrider, the Guardian comes on and off easy. Loosen two thumb bolts and pull the safety clips then it slides out of mounts.

Yes a Roadmaster baseplate, we tow it behind a 2005, Holiday Rambler,Admiral 30PDD.

Cleaning out the house is taking time and then have some remodel/upgrades to do to house before selling.

Hope to see you out there.
