Considering a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk as a towed car. Any ideas about who makes good base plates.

I’ve always used Demco. Usually a hundred bucks cheaper.

Whatever you decide, PPL usually discounts the most.

If you're towing a Cherokee be sure to also ask the dealer to install the Flat Towing wire harness upgrade. There's a TSB in their system for this.

I have the 2019 and run the roadmaster with no crossbar, I looked at the design of Demco and blue ox and liked roadmaster better, but I did upgrade to the Demco stay and play from the evenbrake
