The detachable towbar has benefited from the trend towards more elegant visual lines on cars. Once the tow ball neck is removed, the towbar base is completely out of sight. Detachable towbars are available in two styles - vertically and horizontally detachable. The vertically detachable towbar has been the first choice for vehicle manufacturers OEM and OES equipment for nearly 25 years. During this time the design has evolved and is accepted within the towbar industry as the premier product in its class in Europe.
The installation is nearly always invisible and leaves minimal bumper cut, when a bumper cut is necessary. Westfalia-Automotive's close links with vehicle manufacturers allows us to recommend the necessary original equipment cover plates, if these are available. This type of towbar allows easy removal and fitting of the towball neck via a quick release system.

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. Fantastic service from them, once again very helpful when queried and always willing to assist with problems. Towbar was packaged really well for such a heavy item, and arrived on time too.Will definitely use them again in the future. Had a great experience with them for purchasing exact hook for our car!
