    Default Buying a towbar, Advice please

    Thinking of getting a towbar as im fed up with using my dads sorento.
    It would only be for pulling a small trailer which i use for trips to the dump. I am thinking of a detatchable one so its not unsilghly. is there a towbar that is "invisible" when not in use?

    Also is the facelift and facelift boot electrics the same? as i have seen a few on ebay with oem electrics?

    This is my PCT detachable towbar, the electrics fold up too but I forgot to do it before taking the pic

    The pre-face/facelift have the same electrics however some cars may need to have it enabled via tech2

    I have a Bosal towbar fitted to my car, the man who fitted it said they were the best ones. Dont know if its the detachable version or not, there is a control box fitted in quarter panel void that the electrics are wired through.

    I got this one, from here:

    http://www.towequipe.co.uk/products/...-02-on-kt.html

    Easy to fit at home, and invisible when not in use. Ball detaches and the electric socket fold up. You need to get one of those taper drills to drill a couple of holes in the boot floor, but the positions are already marked, and there's nothing below that you can accidentally drill into (like a fuel tank!).

    Got the proper Vauxhall wiring kit from the dealer, part number on here somewhere, for a bit under £50 which worked straight off without any Tech2.

    The detachable ball fits in the spare wheel well (and I have a full-sized spare wheel).
