I recently bought a Spark to use as a toad for my toyhauler. The next step was to select a baseplate, towbar, light system, etc. I wanted a baseplate that would be as inocuous as possible when not in use and be simple to connect and detatch. The Blue Ox 1725 seemed to fit the bill. I combined it with the Curt towbar and a Blue Ox adapter, which resulted in a nice clean and simple system. The staff at Etrailer went out of their way to answer my questions and to insure that my order was delivered quickly. Great service as always. The install went smoothly thanks to the great instalkation video. I am very happy with the way that it turned out. 560621

The Blue ox plate was easy to install, following the your You tube video. The hardest part was removing the front bumper cover on the Chevy Spark. My son and I had it all installed in about 2 hours. 792655

Great product-totally went together exactly like the video. Those videos along with great customer support set etrailer apart and make this kind of project realistic for a do it yourselfer. Only challenge was the evil hidden screw reinstall in the GM fender well. That's a GM thing. The base plate's manufacturing tolerances were right on. Perfect fit. 764058

I cannot say enough good things about etrailer. With the help of Kim P., I ordered a base plate, tow bar and a couple of other items. The first surprise is that the free shipping was almost more like express shipping. I received everything 4 days later. When I went back to the etrailer to order another part, I noticed that the base plate price had dropped by $60. The second surprise was when I contacted Kim about the price drop. Thanks to her quick action, etrailer refunded the $60 dollar difference. It was a sincere pleasure to work with Kim and etrailer. Great web site, great products, and great customer service. 596654

The baseplate is not for those unfamiliar with tinkering with parts/cars. To install the baseplate, I removed the front undercarriage plastic unit, the front grill and loosened the fenders. Instructions were good and all parts fit as they should. I had to cut the plastic grill in several areas to fit the attachments, but when completed, it looked as if the car came that way. Of course, that was step one. Step two was the installation and wiring of brake lights, and step three was the wiring and installation of the braking system. This all took two or three days working at my pace. All in all, a very good installation. I would do it again. 381615

My 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback baseplate has worked great, no "0" issues. I've towed my car over 4,000 miles and the baseplate is as tight as the day I put it on. Great product...... 608460

Great Product... fit as subscribed on 2011 Ford Ranger,easy to follow instructions. There was no communication from e-trailer. After 8 days of nothing I had to call, product at that time had not even been shipped. Very Disappointing. Not so sure I'll buy from them again. 281955

I purchased this unit for our 2014 Ford Flex and it had performed perfectly. I installed it myself and was impressed with how easily it went together and how strong of a unit it is. We have hauled the Flex about 12k miles on both line NH and short runs and absolutely no problems. And it loooks good too even when we're towing. 365552

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


This baseplate is very well made and sturdy. I would rate it excellent but for 2 flaws: 1. My vehicle has a power steering cooler which the instructions say to relocate on the supplied brackets. Relocating as instructed puts excessive strain on the connecting hoses. I had to cut the pipes and add about 3 inches of rubber hose to the power steering cooler to make it fit comfortably. 2. Blue Ox do not provide any kind of support outside office hours. This type of product is typically installed by the user over a weekend and BO should provide support to their customers during this time. Overall, I would rate ease of install at 5 (out of 10) excluding the cooler issue. Hook up to the completed baseplate is a breeze. We have the Aventa II towbar which takes about 2 minutes to connect. 108372

My third Blue Ox Base Plate. Fit and function are perfect. Fits my existing (first) tow bar and the tab height is nearly exactly the same as my 12 year older Jeep so didn't even need to make any draw bar changes. 111481

Still attached and working perfectly. Continues to survive some rather intense back country trails with no complaints.

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


I am a pretty good do it your selfer. This was the second base plate i have installed by myself. The first one was on a 2010 Honda Fit. This job took me about 8hrs. by myself. The instructions were first rate. Plus the BIGGEST help was the instructional video about this particular car. OUT STANDING!!! The only problem i had was getting the front plastic cap back on by my self, took awhile but i got it done. Then the second install was on my 2017 Chevrolet Colorado 4x4 pickup. I watched etrailers instructional video about 10 times. By the time i was ready to install the base plate, i pretty much knew what to expect and what to do. The truck job took me about 5 hrs. My best advice i can give is to WATCH their videos, not once, not twice but 4 or 5 times, or more, then the job goes along alot better. And it will be alot easier if you have some help to lift the front plastic cap off, and to reinstall. The rest can be done with no help. 586022

The base plate has worked out great. No problems at all since the install.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Spark with Manual Transmission
    The 2018 Chevy Spark EV has the active air shutters so the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1725 will work well for you. For a tow bar the Blue Ox part # BX7380 would be a great option that would fit and work well too. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round...

  • Recommended Base Plates and Tow Bar to Flat Tow a 2017 Chevrolet Sonic
    The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1725 is confirmed to fit the 2016 Chevrolet Spark. I contacted Blue Ox and they believe it will fit the 2017 as well but have not tested it with the 2017 as of yet. So at this time I can only recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-523185-4 and EZ5 # RM-523185-5 for your Spark. For a wiring kit that uses the Spark's lights without tapping into its wiring use # RM-155. I've attached an install video on a 2016 Sonic that is a similar process. Our most popular...

I recommend Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms part # BX1725 which have removable base plate tabs for a discreet look when not in use. For the tow bar, I recommend The Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar part # BX7420 which is a non-binding design to make hooking up and unhooking the Spark from the motor home so much easier.

  • Recommendation For All Parts Needed To Flat Tow 2017 Chevrolet Spark
    According to the 2017 Chevrolet Spark owner's manual, only the manual transmission vehicles can be flat towed. Automatic transmission vehicles can only be transported with a dolly or trailer. To flat tow a 2017 Spark with manual transmission, you will need base plates, compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, a supplemental braking system, and maybe a high low hitch adapter. For base plates, I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, Item # BX1725. It...

  • Will Roadmaster Base Plate Kit Fit with Curt Tow Bar for a 2017 Chevy Spark

    I found the owners manual for your 2019 Chevy Chevy Spark and under the recreational towing section I found basically all you have to do is put the vehicle in neutral and disconnect the negative battery terminal since you have a manual transmission. Since the battery gets disconnected you would need an outlet kit part # RM-9332 to power the supplemental braking system. The automatic transmission Sparks have to be towed on a dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1. For a base plate...
