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.

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.


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.

I called in the afternoon and the lady said it wood shipped that day which is normally not the case. But it was shipped that very day. The other thing I had called Road Master and they had gave me the part # for the rubber caps that goes on the end of the hitch which the order lady said wasn't right. She put me on hold and called Road Master and she came back and Road Master had gave me the number for the 1 1/4" instead of the 1 1/2" that I needed. Now that is what I call good service. I sorry I forgot her name but she deserves a Atta boy. Thanks again for the great service

Here is an example of a Manufacture (Roadmaster) protecting their dealers, even though we are installers we are required to purchase from distributers, It is much easier to purchase from a quality E Dealer with a easy and complete web page than to spend my time walking into a local RV store and be frustrated with incompetent help. Thank you etrailer..... Great, Great job!!!

Parts came very quickly. The base plates are really well make and of heavy material. If you watch the video it is a breeze to install. Make sure you have some new clips for your bumper as the old ones will break, not all but some. I ordered clips from Amazon. I used a vibrating saw with cutting blade and it did nice job cutting plastic bumper cover.

The Roadmaster EZ Base Plate for my Honda Fit is very heavy duty - well built. The on line Video and the included instructions were excellent. I did encounter one problem during the installation - 2 holes in the mounting plate on the passenger side did not quite line up. I had to enlarge the 2 holes about 1/8 inch toward the outside of the car to make it work. The receivers fit nicely through the grill with no adjustment to the grill.

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

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.

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!

It worked out great perfect fit, good price and great service

Roadmaster base plate for 2010 GMC Terrain. Very detailed instructions, great videos. Product was as described, no holes to drill, just replace factory parts with Roadmaster parts. Everything went together very well. I used the instructions supplied along with the video on my laptop. Hardest part was popping the bumper shroud back on due to colder temperature. I have a fair bit of experience with rebuilding classic cars so have lots tools and reasonable mechanical ability.


Comments
I have towed my Terrain about 3500 miles with no issues. It tows and tracks extremely well. I put red paint marks on the bolts that are easily seen, so that I can see at a glance if any bolts have loosened up. I use a Roadmaster All Terrain tow hitch and SMI Duo braking system.

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.

Very good product at a great price. Instructions and video are for a 2013 terrain and things were a bit different on my 2015. When all screws and clips are removed the front piece cannot be just pulled forward. There is a rear facing clip and you have to pull to the side to remove from this piece. (pics attached)There was no PS cooler attached in front on mine. Remove washer bottle totally which consists of 2 nuts and 1 bolt otherwise you will never get back up plate for top brackets in. If you remove horns it also makes installing the top brackets much easier.

The Roadmaster base Plate kit does what it was designed to do. A difficult install as the Smart ForTwo did not lend itself to an easy base plate engineering design. Installed it myself though with help from the instructions and etrailer on line instructions. I like the finished base plate. It is barely visible protruding only slightly from the black lower radiator grill (see photo)

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.

The installation on this was surprisingly quick on my 2011 Fit (base/non-sport version). Everything fit well (no pun intended). A few minor changes over the video as my car was slightly different: - I didn't have to trim anything on the air dam -- the tubes lined up perfectly with the slots on my grill. - There was a in the wheel on each side where the plastic bumper meets the steel body panel. I didn't realize they were there (they're hidden somewhat) so I ended up cracking the hole this screw was in, but everything came back together nice and tight anyway.

    Yes, I did some checking and the all wheel drive models of the 2012 Buick Enclave can be flat towed. You'll want to first start with a base plate kit confirmed as a fit for your vehicle.
