Towbar Fitting Service
Choosing the right towbar
Towball mounted Cycle Carriers can also be used with Fixed Flange Towbars.
The Swan Neck Towbar is popular with vehicle manufacturers as their original equipment towbar and is also popular in the rest of Europe. Becoming more popular in the UK for towing caravans as it is compatible with ALKO stabiliers. There is no flexibility to add accessories but some prefer the appearance to the Flange ‘two bolt fixing’ type towball.
Towball mounted Cycle Carriers can also be used with Fixed Swan Neck Towbars.
Since the towing neck can be removed it is possible to avoid interference with parking sensors. Detachable towbars are also compatible with ALKO stabilisers and towball mounted Cycle Carriers.
Witter, TowTrust, Brink and Westfalia are the UK’s leading towbar manufacturers. We recommend them for their build quality, strength and unobtrusive designs.
Many vehicle manufacturers also choose these towbar manufacturers as their approved equipment because of their reputation for making excellent products.
