New and used imports of English Caravans have become very popular in New Zealand in recent years. They are quite different to locally made caravans and are said to be well designed, comparatively cheap with 12/240 volt power, toilet/shower and have a light towing weight which reduces fuel consumption.
A High Rise 50 mm Towball is essential for English/European imported caravans which have the AKS3004 stabilizer coupling fitted. This trailer coupling is different to what is used in New Zealand and reduces Caravan sway when towing. It is also necessary to fit a special locking plate which ensures the towball cannot rotate and work the nut loose. Failure to fit a high rise towball and a locking plate can result in severe damage to the trailer coupling and the towball working loose and even the Caravan falling off the towbar.
Megatyre now stocks 50 mm High Neck Towballs and the Locking Plates at our Browns Bay shop; it is essential that both these products are always used together. We are selling these towballs for $99.95 each inc gst and the locking plate. Or we can post them to you anywhere in New Zealand for an additional $5.00. n.b. This price only applies to 7/8ths and 1 inch shank high rise towball kits. 3/4 shank kits are from a different supplier and cost $195.00.
Our High Rise towballs are available with a 7/8ths or one inch shank.
