Thread: Towbar for Vectra VXR

    Default Towbar for Vectra VXR

    Hi
    Does anybody know of a manufacturer of towbars that will fit the Vectra VXR - Witter and Brink do not.
    The lower skirt at the rear is proving a problem vs std Vectra towbars.

    Are there any VXR owners out there that have towbars fitted? Manufacturer or part numbers would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Is there any way we can change your mind, please don't put a T/bar on your VXR.

    But if you must, have you looked at the swan-neck detatchable one.

    http://www.witter-towbars.co.uk/towb...eTowbarID=1937

    Would advise calling local firms to get their advice. Or just ask ditchp what make his towbar is!!!!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    just to allay some fears, I will not be towing anything - but I do want to carry my mountain bikes on my towbar-attached bike rack........
    Witter have already told me directly that nothing they currently make is designed for the VXR.

    Ditchp - do you know the make/model of your towbar please? Thanks all.

    Nothing wrong with fitting a towbar to a VXr and towing whatever you like. Speed rated tyres the same as the car are not necessary, as towing speeds are lower than normal driving speeds anyway.

    Why people mock fitting a TB to a VXr I don't know....
