I'm shopping around to set up my 2010 Chevy Cobalt to be towed behind my 2008 Coachmen Concord TS300. Where in Massachusetts or nearby RI can I get a real good deal on the complete set up? Maybe I'm better off buying all the parts myself and having at least the base plate installed by a professional and I could probably do the rest myself. I know that labor rates are not cheap and it takes about 3-4 hours to install the base plate. Can someone help?

I would start by reading the installation instructions for the base plates you are considering so you can decide what brand you prefer.

Then ask the manufacturers for THEIR recommendation for shops that install their baseplates in your area.

Here's the link to what it just cost me. It was much less expensive locating the parts, and installer vs,,,,,dealer.

Your mileage may differ.
