When it comes to having a towbar fitted to your vehicle, it can end up being quite a difficult decision to make;

    Do I need single or twin electrics?

When it comes to choices on towbar electrics, there are three options of socket configuration, Single 7 pin electrics (12N), twin 7 pin electrics (12N+12S) and the 13pin socket. Single 7 pin electrics have been the UK ‘standard’ for some time now, they offer all required road lighting functions, this option is mainly selected by users towing trailers and using cycle carriers or lighting boards. Twin 7 pin electrics offer the same as single 7 pin but the 12S function offers reverse lights (if fitted to the trailer) and also battery charging and fridge power to the caravan whilst towing. Full function 13 pin electrics offer all the same functions as the 12N+12S but in a combined socket, this is fast becoming the UK standard and preferred choice. A wide range of adapters is available to convert between different socket configurations.

    Fixed or detachable Towbars?

There are 4 main types of towbars,  fixed flange, fixed swan neck, flange detachable swan neck and in some cases, flange detachable. The main reasons for selecting a detachable towbar over a fixed are:

  • A fixed bar may obscure the vehicle’s number plate
  • Detachable towbars help maintain a vehicles neat clean appearance (in many cases, a fully invisible detachable option is available) please enquire.
  • If the vehicle is fitted with reverse park sensors, a fixed bar may interfere with these sensors giving irregular readings.
