Quite often we have customers who come to us to have a towbar fitted to their vehicle saying “just the towbar thank you, no electrical wiring, we just want a towbar to protect the rear of our car”. We have had all ages make this request, but many of them seem to be in the 55 plus age group.
And this does make sense, other drivers are much less likely to nudge your bumper when parking as any contact with your towbar is going to cost them heaps!
But the thing about towbars is that they do attract trailers and bike racks. I have had a number of customers over the years comment that they only put the towbar on to protect the back of the car, but have been amazed how often they have used it for towing trailers and their grand children’s bikes! And if your towbar usage changes, we can usually retro fit electrical wiring at our normal price.
