Tow Bar differences?

Postby snowjoe » Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:11 pm

I have a P reg tourneo with a tow bar. It has been replaced by our 2006 Transit 300 MWB minubus. The old van is being scrapped, but I would like to have a tow bar on the newer one if poss. Will the tow bar be interchangeable or will it not fit the newer van?
thanks for any help

Never tried it myself but they're two totally different animals so I would say it won't fit sorry

I had a step that I transferred from mk5 to mk6 so worth a look at least.
2000 mk5 100 swb, going.
2005 mk6 350 lwb, not going.
2005 mk6 280 lwb, gone bang.
1996 mk5 190 lwb, gone.
1998 mk5 swb, gone.

Yes thanks, just wish I could find a way to know without unbolting (cutting off rusty bolts i mean!) and spending an hour or two on it. maybe a look at new towbars will help...

Measure the distance between the legs and how far it drops down and sticks out, you have both vans and a measuring tape
