Review from a similar EZ in Base Plates


I ordered the base plate for my 2010 Ram. It was shipped right away and it arrived on the fourth day. I have no complaints about ordering this product it was quick and efficient to deal with etrailer. The base plate arrived and was as advertised except for the bolts with the fish wire to do the one side of the bracket. It said in the instructions to use them. It was not a big deal. I had to do a little grinding on the inner bumper to get it to fit which was a bit of a pain but that is not the fault of the product. This is the second Roadmaster base plate I have installed and would order another if I need one! 671692

Installed on 2014 GMC Acadia. Very sturdy and heavy duty base plate. I installed it myself. You will need a little automotive knowledge and more tools then the average do it yourself-er. It took about 6 hours, by myself. It looks more intimidating then it turned out to be. You can't see it when not in use which makes it nice for the wife, since it's her car. Pictures show the tow bar adapter. Sorry, no pictures of adapter removed. 775432

After checking and verifying with Kelsey what my 2006 Mazda Miata needed for tow plates, I ordered and in a very few days, it arrived at my doorstep. They also did a great job for my 2018 Jeep Cherokee, which I am towing behind my RV now. They have the most knowledgeable folks to help to get the correct parts and if you find a price lower, they will refund the difference. I can't think of any other Company that does that. This Company is my only go-to place for anything towing related. Here is a picture of my installed BlueOx base plates on my Jeep and will update as soon as I get the Miata installed, and get a picture of that also. 527318

Review from a similar EZ in Base Plates


Very happy with this product. Installation was pretty easy. I see no reason to pay someone to install this. True you have to take the bumper off and a large metal support beam but it was pretty easy. You just have to take it slow and not get frustrated. The bumper on the Honda Fit is held on with a gazillion little plastic clips and snap joints. Everything fits tight on a Honda so you have to be patient. My only complaint is they don't give you the exact torque settings. I had to consult a shop manual to get the correct torque values. They give a table at the end of the instructions that gives common torque values for various bolt sizes. I thought that was lame they could have given the correct value from the shop manual. Certainly not enough to lower my rating. This bar is awesome and when the drawbars are removed the base plate is almost completely hidden. My wife wanted nothing to show on the front of the car. She was very pleased with it. In the picture attached the bar is almost completely hidden. All you see are two small black circles. It takes about 2 seconds to mount the drawbars, just twist and go. VERY sturdy. I tow my Honda behind the motorhome with confidence. 80709

I like the Roadmaster tow bars but I am 2 for 2 with fitment issues. The one bolt hole did not line up with the frame, after trying to adjust and take measurements for an hour, I had to grind about an eighth of an inch on the frame hole. This issue doubled the installation time. Had a similar issue with my Miata tow bar 7 years ago, but had to enlarge hole on tow bar. The etrailer video was excellent and this would have been a simple install if the tow bar fit. 571342

Roadmaster base plate and tow bar is just a perfect combo to tow my car behind my class C mercedes RV. A little over five thousand miles already with no issues at all,with the included instructions it was easy to install with basic tools and with the removable bars i take them off when i get back home and I can just drive my car without them and no one can't tell it is a tow car.. 728507

I don't remember if these were for installing on the Buick or the MG. If they were for the MG, I have used them a good many times and they are fine. If they are or the Buick, I have not used them yet. I just need to finish up the wiring and the aux brakes for it. 415358


Comments
Thanks for asking. I installed them without a problem with the intention of pulling the Buick behind the motor home till I realized the Buick was 1000 over the tow limit of the hitch on the motor home so wound up never using them. If I ever need to tow it, they are there.

Purchased the towing adapter for my GMC Terrain a few week ago, received it on time & boxed not damaged. Watched the videos’ about three time on how to do it myself and started one evening and finished it the next morning about three hours with Beer Breaks, LoL. All the parts fix perfectly, had no problems with any of the parts, Product is real sturdy and if you don’t know where to look at the bumper you will not see the hide away receiver brackets. Very nice product, do it yourself and save Up loading two photos if it will let me one is with hide away brackets installed and the other one you can see is my complete tow bar attached to the hide away brackets 200736

Larry, Im assuming that youve towed your vehicle by now. Are you still happy with your choice and did you purchase any additional components like the electrical kit, fuse switch..etc Dave R

Have been using this tow adapter now for a while and everything works out fine, Easy to connect. I did purchase the Wiring harness from the tail lights to the front of the car instead of making it as I usually do and the connection to the RV from that connection and glad I did, the wiring harness also went easy and very fast.

Was pretty easy to install once you deal with the Plastic Rivet Retaining Clips. It's probably a good idea to have some spare clips available as they are pretty easy to break while removing. eTrailer offered the best price and shipping was free and fast. 183405

Tow Bar System is obviously part of a full set of kits that are installed in out Honda Fit and towed. I installed the system and fit great. No complaints and it’s easy and quick to hook up each time and works as it should. 846183

Fairly easy install. Just take you time. One person can do it alone just takes time. Lower rocker cover clips broke on mine while removing the trim cover. Mercedes Benz sells them or you can order online - they are cheap. I used lots of red Loctite on all the bolts. I also had the video on my iPad and moved along with it. 824358

I did purchase this base plate for my Honda Fit that I flat tow behind my motor home, the product was installed as shown with absolutely no issues, and I continue to tow my Honda regularly, I would consider a great investment and well worth the money I spent. 822270
