    Tow bar fitting south east (herts)

    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...

    Towbar bike rack that allows tailgate to open fully

    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.

    PF Jones appalling service.

    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...

    Error: ACC and Error: Brakes… Workshop!

    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. Error: ACC *reading here suggests this sometimes happens after towbar install...

    Hi all, 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. Thanks Ian

    Hi, 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...

    Rear Bumper valance and tow bar ??

    Hi folks, 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! ABT won’t. the list...

    Which detachable Tow Bar?

    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...

    Westfalia tow bar

    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...

    Evening all. Is there any adjustment on the rear bumper height? Mine seems to be rubbing the bottom of the tailgate for some reason.

    I want a discreet Tow bar

    Hi. I’m in the market for a tow bar for my T5.1. A lot of the ones I’ve seen on eBay and other sites are big ugly things hanging off the rear bumper. Has anyone got any ideas. Many thanks. Lui

    When trying to remove your detachable Westfalia towbar, try pulling the handle out and turning it before resorting to the big rubber hammer! Regards Ian

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 2018 T6...

    VW tow bar keys

    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!
