Towbar Fitting

Before any vehicle can be used for towing it is necessary to fit a towbar and the required socket or sockets to power a caravan or trailer's lights and appliances.

This is no small task:

  • The right towbar and wiring system for you will depend on your towing vehicle's specific features such as Trailer Stability Program (TSP), CAN bus or Parking Control and the exterior body work
  • Incorrectly modified wiring could result in serious damage to some vehicles; others simply would not function properly leading to road safety issues
  • It is all too easy to damage the bodywork of your vehicle during the installation of a towbar, especially the bumper which might need to be cut as part of the procedure
  • An incorrectly fitted towbar could invalidate your new vehicle warranty

Rest assured, our fitting centre began 30 years ago and is now Lincolnshire's largest. You won't find a towbar fitting centre with more experience and industry knowledge than we can boast here at John Coopers:
