We changed our car last week and I ordered the Blue Ox baseplate last Friday. It arrived today at our campsite. Best price I could find on the net was Ebay. Ordered the four diode wiring kit the same way. I'll install it all myself next week. We save $$$$$ this way.

When you get ready to purchase a supplemental braking system for your toad look at the system made by SMI.
A lot of folks on this forum use them because they are proportional, permanently installed and eliminates the need to man handle a portable floor based unit you have to wedge in using your seat.
I have one being installed in my Jeep Liberty toad.
