    Bumper shopping some time ago landed me a Ford truck (I think) bumper from junkyard that had already been modified to fit something else. I just had to drill 2 more holes it in to match up to all factory fastening locations that stock bumpe had.

    Anyway, I flush mounted my 7 flat in one of license plate light holes, and put a 6 round in the other so I don't have to worry about adapters anymore.

    License plate light solution:

    I would use a plug that has a 5 wire flat along with the 7 pin round. My boat trailer requires a 5 pin flat because of disc brakes and the 4 pin flat trailer plug will still plug into a 5 pin flat receptacle. Cost is the same.

    This is exactly where I put mine, in fact, if that was a Nevada license plate I would think someone stole my picture, except my extra lights on the bumper are black housing.

    i recently had this same issue on my Yoder Toter 15 passenger van. I highly recommend going with the Hopkins Endurance model instead of this one. It is much stronger and better built but functionally the same. FYI the Endurance model will fit in the same bracket when (not if) you break the standard unit.
