Jason made this a very easy purchase. Everything I needed arrived in 3 shipments, so install took a little longer. Directions were clear and easy to follow. Jeep is now ready to tow behind the motorhome. Thanks

Great product and I love the way it's hidden. It took me 2.5 hours to install. The only problem I had was UPS didn't deliver on time and it wasn't the dealers problem.
