    • My van is a T2 a/b, I'm always in doubt if it will fit pre 71, 71-72 of post 72 stuff. How can I tell for this item?
    • Answer: Vans after 1972 would have the larger rear lights (rectangular) the pre 71 vans would have wide 5 brakes with drum brakes on the front

    • Is it posible that you can send me a copy of the certificate so that i can show my MOT officer and ask him if it will pass tho MOT with this towbar
    • Answer: Pretty sure they don't come with a certificate. I don't think one is needed for a UK mot. You can contact Watling direct to see if they can help

    • I have just had a problem with a tow bar for my early crossover Bay not being strong enough. Will this tow bar carry a four bike carrier plus four bikes with a total max weight of 75kg?
    • Answer: We believe it is not down to the tow bar itself but the maximum nose tow weight of the vehicle. It can't be too heavy or it can affect the handling of the vehicle etc
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Do you know the max weight it can pull with brakes on the trailer, and without?
    • Answer: Sorry we don't I'm afraid. It is more down to the vehicle. Try doing a search on google.

    • Will this towbar fit with some of your aftermarket exausts? like the staineless steel one?
    • Answer: Hello. The early bay tow bar can only be used with a standard exhaust I'm afraid due to a metal bar that goes vertical where the quiet pack flange would go.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Hi; I am looking to fit the tow bar myself. Does it come with full fitting instructions including a wiring diagram for the electrics pack?
    • Answer: Yes, they come with fitting instructions but not wiring diagram. Wiring diagrams can be found on the internet.

Are you aware of anything else outside of what is included in this pack that would be required to complete a DIY job of fitting a fully operational Towbar and ball including electrics. Thanks.
