Hiya,

Ok i have the van ordered, im happy about noseweights, now the next hurdle!

Towing bars!


I know i need a twin electrics one, and i contacted a peugeot dealer and
they passed me on red cap garage? and they have quoted me 177 (Witter
tow bar!)inc vat and fitting!!! which compared to my other local pug
dealer, 295 i know which one i would prefer!


However, my car is only 6 months old, im not going to invalidate my
warranty by getting it done elsewhere am i?

If I wanted a towbar fitted in the and I was within easy reach of Bury
I would go to Peter Bowman Trailer Centre. (01617973000) Nice people
and of good reputation.

I had a Witter towbar fitted to my Citroen Picasso this week by
Mobelec (01625 859938) based in Poynton but they come to you for
fitting.

I received very good service. The cost was 159+VAT and included a
free connection to charge a leisure battery in the boot off the relay
should I need to.

Regards,
Chris Ryan.

Recommend you go to a towbar specialist. Dealers fit very few in comparison
and are less experienced.
I asked dealer to fit one to my Alhambra because it was under warranty and
they got a contractor in who did a messy job.
At the moment I am fitting one myself to Hyundai Sante Fe. All holes are pre
drilled. Electrics are more of a puzzle and care required in the interests
of safety.
