    Default Towing... (and fitting tow bar)

    Thinking about buying a small box trailer to shift my gear about (I have a lot of sound and lighting kit that I use for charity concerts).

    Currently I don't have a tow bar. How easy is it to fit one to the C? Any recommendations on a brand to go for? I'd quite like one that I could take off when not in use, is this possible?

    I'll obviously have to let my insurance company (Admiral) know that I've made the mod, any idea how much extra I'm likely to have to pay?

    Cheers

    They are easy to fit. Drill 4 holes, lower the exhaust temporarily. Bolt on tow bar, run electrics. Sorted. Someone posted a how 2 recently you could search for. not sure if it was on the How 2 section or somewhere else.

    Yes, you can get detatchable ones although more expensive.

    My insurance company didn't charge anything extra when i informed them of the towbar however I think Admiral charge £50 for any mod from memory lol Nothing stopping you phoning before hand and asking "if I fit a tow bar, how much would it cost?"

    Just had one fitted on Saurday. A WITTER removable Fantastic, everything is behind the bumper so nothing ugly on show. I paid £300 all in and the guy came round and did it on my drive. Took him 75 mins.
