    Default What towbar?

    Hey guys!

    I need to get a towbar to move a RIB around.

    Vaux quoted £160 for the bar and £70 for the wiring, but will something like this-

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-Vectr...3A1|240%3A1318

    do the trick?

    And how easy are they to fit? (mostly the electrics I am worried about!)

    Cheers!

    Towequipe are very well known, so no issue with regards to buying from there.

    Fitting is easy enough - but does involve a fair bit of trim removal, nothing too scary though.

    Regarding electrics, the option that is simplest and which integrates best with the car is the Vx electrics. For the basic 12N wiring kit with module it's around £40/45 new from dealers, so not too outrageous.
