There are two different style of towbars, fixed and detachable, both of which are available in swan neck and flange styles. Choosing a towbar can be confusing due to the wide variety of options. Towbars are vehicle specific so the options of towbar types can be limited depending on the car make and model. However, most modern vehicles have options of all towbar styles and types.
The complexity of modern cars means that fitting tow bar electrics can be very difficult. It is important to choose the right electrics to suit your towing needs, whether that be towing a caravan, trailer, cycle carrier or anything else.
There are 3 types of towing electric sockets to choose from depending on your personal preference and towing needs, they are single 7 pin electrics (12N towing electrics), twin 7 pin electrics (a combination of 12N and 12S towing electrics) and single 13 pin electrics.
After you have chosen a type of towing electric socket you will need to decide on tow bar wiring kit, there are 2 types, universal wiring kits (fits all vehicles) and dedicated wiring kits (fits specifically to a single vehicle).
