Rough Cost to Install a BasePlate/Towbar, and Brake Controller

What's a good rough estimate to install a baseplate, tow bar, light kit and a brake controller in a vehicle like the Chevy Equinox...

I see BlueOx towbars/baseplates/accessories for around $1500...what's a good round figure to get it installed??

My experience with two installs has been four hours labor for the baseplate and wiring. The SMI Stay N Play brake was another four hours.

For Roadmaster base plate and tow bar at Camping World with installation done October 2014, $1855.
RVi2 brake with four wheel TPMS $1302.
(I think installation time was 4 hrs.)

Done by Lazy Days Tampa on a 2013 Honda CRV. Blue Ox base plate, light wireing kit, charge line, a new SMI Stay In Play braking system, umbilical cord, safety chains, and everything installed. Around $2600.00 as I recall. That did not include the actual tow bar that I already had.
