Tow Package Installation Advice Needed

Looking for suggestions on the best place to get a complete flat towing package and have it installed near either Nashville, Indiana or Panama City, FL. Only local Camping World near us gets terrible reviews. Was hoping to get this done in the next 2-3 weeks. Have a 2013 Fleetwood Bounder 35K and will be towing a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Have you the equipment already? I suggest a Ready Brute Elite with integral braking system. Tow from a aftermarket bumper or Currie base plate. And a light kit.

Can be a DIY install. Else also does not have to be an RV shop per se. Independent jeep shops or auto repair that does jeeps can be capable to install as well.

It would be no problem for any body shop, anywhere.

Most hitch shops can also do this install for you.

I use the Blue Ox base plates on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. Installed them myself. Took about half a day.

It really can be a DIY with all the Youtube videos available. Get a buddy and 3-4 hrs later you have saved a lot of $. E-trailer has a good selection.

good luck
