Adding a towbar to a van is a popular option.
Exploria can do this while we have the vehicle in for conversion or as a stand alone upgrade.
For many, being able to tow is a daily necessity for work. For even more, it gives options. Adding a towbar mounted bike rack, pulling a caravan or towing a boat are all common reasons for wanting a towbar on a vehicle.
When it comes to fitting towbars, the most important thing is to ensure that they are fitted properly. We are not talking about ensuring it’s bolted on correctly. We are referring to the wiring of the towbars. Modern vehicles work on an electrical CAN system and so it's imperative that towbars are wired correctly and programmed into the vehicle. This ensures that it will all work as it should. Without this, it can create various other electrical faults such as rear parking sensors being turned off when towing and bulb warning lights showing on the dials for the vehicle and trailer board. The only downside is that these wiring looms can be expensive and the time they take to fit is increased due to the connections needed and programming into the ECU.
We install towbars with vehicle specific wiring loom and give you the choice of 7pin or 13pin wiring. Although the modern standard for many is now 13pin.
