Questions

Towbar Fitting

How long does it take to fit a towbar?

Towbar fitting time varies significantly from vehicle to vehicle. We will give you an estimate of the time it will take when we book your your Towbar Fitting.  Generally towbar fitting takes between two and four hours depending on the vehicle and the parts being fitted.  (This includes installing and fitting the electrics.)

How much weight can my vehicle tow?

You can find this information in your vehicle handbook. Each vehicle varies in towing capacity.  The information is also normally available by looking at the weight limits that are found on a plate attached to your driver’s side vehicles door pillar.  

Why is a Dedicated Wiring Kit better?

Dedicated Wiring Kits are manufactured specifically for your vehicle make and model. They have their own wiring loom and most of the time they connect directly to your vehicle without the need for soldering or scotchloks. Dedicated kits also activate advanced towing features and vehicle safety features such as Trailer Stability (Vehicle Dependant) Dedicated towbar wiring tends to ba a lot more reliable than universal electrics.  Also, dedicated towbar wiring will not alter your vehcle manufacturer guarantee, fitting universal wiring will. 

Will my vehicle have to be recoded after the towbar fitting?

In most cases yes! This is to ensure that your vehicle can communicate with the towbar electrics to enable advanced towbar and safety features. Some vehicles don’t need coding to activate the towing features, these vehicles automatically activate the features when they detect a dedicated electrical kit has been installed. 

Can I fit my own towbar?

We highly reccomend that a competent towbar fitter fits your towbar due to the complexity of the installation. However, we have many customer’s who do buy the tow bar and wiring kit that they self-fit.  

Should I inform my insurance company about my towbar

Because a towbar is an aftermarket accessory you must inform your insurance company that you have had a towbar fitted. Most of the time there is no charge for this addon. Failure to inform your insurance could void your policy, so to be safe it’s best to check with them .
