Transit custom euro 5 tow bar and wiring kit

Postby loot » Fri Sep 14, 2018 9:23 pm

Right chaps I've had a quick look but could do with a heads up.

I'm looking at a witter tow bar that detaches for 200gbp they range from 230 to 400 for the same or cheaper for Chinese ones :-).
It is the swan neck type.

Also I'm looking at factory fitting electrics, 190 genuine for a 13 pin kit and I'll use a 7 pin adapter for trailer I guess and without for caravan if the need arises.

So just shy of 400 for a real tow bar.

Unless someone can suggest a cheaper alternative or has 1 knocking about?

I have ids and can activate tow bar.
I haven't looked or don't know if our where I may have part loom or whatever or nothing at all of an existing loom?

Don't know if this is of any use. I put a tow trust bar on mine but about the same price as the witter bar.

Cheers both, this 1 is a witter and I can pick it up locally tomorrow, the wiring I was not sure if genuine was the way to go, more info needed.

I can get cheaper but it is no name but I'd rather get 1i know, but cheaper if possible Lol.

If it helps, I fitted an ECS dedicated loom and activated it with Forscan, all seems to work well. Only downside was the wiring was as expensive as the tow bar. Two connectors in the passenger footwell area for road lights but I have not yet connected the extra bit for the fridge in the caravan.
