Not sure if this is the right place to post? But possible new van will need a westfalia detach bar
used GT towing before but there prices are way higher and they still scratched my bumper lightly on the current van. Wasn’t impressed with the staff arguing over the price match they had offered...
What are people using for towbar mounted bike racks ?
I've acquired a Thule 943 - 3 bike rack and as you can see it won't tilt far enough to allow the tailgate to open ??
I have a Westphalia detachable swan neck tow ball.
Despite a number of people telling me how good PF Jones are my advice at this moment is stay well away from them. I ordered a Tow Bar and electric from them 3 weeks ago. They initially gave me an install date of the 28th. I spoke to the fitters and they brought it forward to 9am today. Last...
Ok, someone please save me. I’m worried I’ve seriously wrecked something.
I’ve just finished a series of jobs. Most likely to have caused the error, fitting Westfalia towbar electrics.
I now get these two errors.
*reading here suggests this sometimes happens after towbar install...
I've just had a towbar fitted with dedicated electrics to a T6.1 2021 model and I'm getting this error.
Auto electrician reckons it'll clear when it's driven but I find this very hard to believe.
New member here & first post - I just bought a '17 LWB Camper conversion. Happy bunny.
I would like to add a towbar to the van so I can carry my full-size enduro (motocross) bike on a Dave Cooper rack or similar.
These racks attach to flange towbars - I can find plenty of those, but...
Probably a can of worms but has anyone found any bumper valances/extensions etc that actually work with a removeable tow bar on T6 barn door.
I've tried PP tuning and asked 3 times however they have not come back to me.
Xtreme vans are not sure
the list goes on!
I'm doing my research ahead of getting a tow bar fitted.
I definitely want a detachable one, and want the electrics to be out of sight when not in use. Looking back at old threads here, I see conflicting info about whether some brands (Westfalia, Tow Trust, for example) actually do this...
Hi all, I have a t6 with tailgate and looking for a cycle rack for a couple of bike while towing. I have a roof spoiler and don’t want to roof mount, the tow ball is detachable. Is there anything on the market available?
Hi guys & gals. We have a 70 plate T6.1 150 Highline panel van that we have an issue with.
Basically looking for someone that has had a factory towbar and electrics fitted at a dealer after build, hope that makes sense?
Our van came from the factory without a tow bar or Trailer prep.
Fitted a Westfalia Detachable Tow Bar earlier in the week. Just picked up the 13pin wiring kit from VW to fit over weekend.
Kit supplied has the code 7F0 055 204 B.
Just looking through instructions and it only seems to show a flat bed and mentions single or double cab. It's also shows...
I already have a fixed swan neck tow bar and electrics fitted to my t6.
Do all tow bars use the same mounting points.
I would like to remove my tow bar ( not sure what make) and fit the westfalia with removable ball hitch.
Is this a easy thing to do? Plan on use the existing electrics so...
Just had a towbar removed from my T6, previous owner had it fitted under a year ago so not had much use
The fitter that removed it told me it will fit all T5 & T6's, it comes with electrics and is non detachable
It's a Westfalia so not a cheap one
I dont know much more than that about it but...
Thought it best to share today’s experience and caution others. Please please please check and recheck any towbar mounted bike racks. Even though we triple checked before setting off, ours decided to part company today whilst travelling at 60mph on the M1. Standing helpless at the side of the...
I've still got to phone around to a couple of other potential fitters tomorrow but has anybody got an idea of whether or not a quote from PF Jones for the above is competitive and / or reasonable. I used their on-line quotation tool for the following:
Westfalia Detachable Tow-Bar
Really hate those little red keys, unpleasant to turn and you can't attach them to anything... Local locksmith done me proud and with a bit of extra filing we have a solution. :)
Happy days. You can tell i have nothing better to do!
