Westfalia-Automotive offer two different types of fixed towbar, the swan neck and flange. SWAN NECK TOWBAR The swan neck towbar is the most common type of towbar used across Europe. With the swan neck the tow ball and the neck form one piece of the towbar. This type of towbar is becoming more and more popular in the UK due to the appearance of the towbar looking neater and with it having a slimmer profile to the flange towbar it is less likely to trigger parking sensors.
If you want to tow and attach a cycle carrier at the same time, the swan neck towbar will not be for you. The swan neck towbar can also be used with an ALKO or BPW stabiliser without the need for modification. If you are using a stabiliser with built in friction pads it is essential that all paint and grease is removed from the towball prior to use.F10 - Welded model F20 - Bolted model.

All is explained in detail on our towing guide pages, but here's the short of it.. Fixed flange towbars are the most versatile, at the cost of being bulky and are likely to trigger reversing sensors. Fixed swan necks lose the versatility of the flange type but gain a sleeker fitment, are less likely to trigger sensors and look better to suit. Detachable towbars are similar to swan necks but can be removed fully when not in use maintaining your vehicles appearance. Guarantees proper operation of reversing sensors. 7 Pin (12N) provides your basic lights except for reverse and is ideal for bike carriers, trailers and caravans where power feeds are not required.
12S and 13 Pin provide an ignition switched and permanent power feed in addition to reverse and is primarily used for caravans. Dedicated or VSK electrics are the recommended choice especially for DIY fittings as they include full instructions and provide a more professional fitment. Universal electrics are also an option but take more care to fit properly.
