Volkswagen Transporter T5 & T6 Westfalia Detachable Towbar

There are two different style of tow bars, fixed and detachable, both of which are available in swan neck and flange styles. Choosing a tow bar can be confusing due to the wide variety of options. Tow bars are vehicle specific so the options of tow bar types can be limited depending on the car make and model. However, most modern vehicles have options of all tow bar styles and types.

• Neck of the tow bar can be removed leaving the vehicle looking like there is not a tow bar fitted and towing capacity is the same as a fixed bar
• If parking sensors are fitted to a vehicle the detachable tow bar will not interfere once removed
• You will not bang your legs or trip on the tow bar when utilising your boot or walking around your vehicle when neck is removed
• Capable of carrying any tow ball mount cycle carrier
• Compatible with AL-KO and other friction style stabilisers (once paint is removed off the 50mm ball section)
• Neck mechanism locks to the vehicle to stop it being stolen
Things to consider before purchasing a detachable swan neck tow bar:
• If you lose the neck at any point they are expensive to replace
• Tow bar height cannot be altered
• Alternative tow balls cannot be fitted
• Price, the swan neck type tow bars are more expensive than flange tow bars
