How to organise your tow bar fitting.

Tow bar Types

Standard (Tongue) towbars

Standard tow bar gooseneck Tow bar lug spanner

The standard towbar uses a tongue to mount the tow ball and are also known as gooseneck towbars. The tongue can be removed by undoing 2 bolts. The standard bar is ideal for towing lighter loads like small box trailers, tinnies, jet skis and many other single axle trailers. Ratings range from 600kg to 1600kg depending on the vehicle. There is also a large range of bike carriers that can be used with a gooseneck tow bar, see our bike rack page for details.

Hitch Receiver towbars

The hitch receiver tow bar incorporates a removable square hitch that is fitted with a quick release pin. The hitch receiver towbars available for the X5 come with a 50mm square receiver socket. Heavy duty hitch receivers are ideal for towing caravans, horse floats, car trailers and larger boats depending on the vehicles towing capabilities.

The hitch style towbar also allows quick removal of the tow hitch when not in use to save those shins. The square hitch tow bar can also provide a mounting point for a wide range of bike carriers. Please see our bike rack pages for details.
