Can A Towbar Be Fitted To Any Car?
If you already have yourself a towbar and wish you transfer it onto another vehicle, it should be able to be a done job. However, you may only switch it onto a car or vehicle that is the same model.
That way, it should have all the correct mechanisms for this to be done accurately and safely. It must still comply with the standard EU regulations, be in good working, safe conditions and be type-approved.
Second-hand towbars need additional testing and checking before fitting by a local fitter for your safety. In case there are any existing faults that you may be unaware of, to ensure, it is then road legal and safe to use.
Motorhome Towbars That We Install:
Here at MotorHome Towbars, our business can service, supply and fit all three towbar fitting installations for your motorhome. The most commonly searched for towbar type that we supply in Lincoln being the Swan Neck.
It is the most common mobile fitting towbar type in the UK and EU. Essentially, it is where the neck and tow ball all become one piece of the towbar. Whilst it is somewhat of a less versatile towbar fitting installation than the flange style, you can tow or attach a bicycle or scooter carrier.
Detachable Swan Neck
They are vertical mounting systems that can entirely hide behind the vehicle's bumper when you remove it. The towbar then becomes utterly invisible to notice once detached.
A flange ball towbar has two specific parts that you may easily distinguish - the tow ball and the tow neck. These two bolts together create the actual towbar and allow for towing with much more versatility and movement.
How Much Does It Cost To Have A Tow Bar Fitted?
It is far cheaper to install a permanent or fixed towbar instead of a swivelling or detachable towbar.
When getting your towbar fitted, the starting costs can be around £250 - £450. The overall charge also affects and covers the electric kits, which can be around £50 - £100. The total cost of materials is somewhere from £140 up to about £570.
All the details and prices depend exclusively on the model, and the costs of installations can start at £300. The capacity also affects the overall price due to the number of materials used.
Is It Illegal To Fit Your Own Towbar?
The UK introduced EC 94/20 type approval regulations in 1998 as part of European Whole Vehicle Type Approval. These regulations allow for passenger cars to be registered if they can fit them on with a towbar. EC94/20 standards require specific designs and manufacturers for them to be authorised.
It is vital to have the correct instalment of a towbar under these regulations as it can be a dangerous task and highly illegal. However, you do not have to get your towbar installed professionally by towbar fitters.
You don't require any necessary qualifications for the job. As long as the installation is following the instructions of the manufacturer, you may fit it yourself.
