WITTER TOWBAR

Which type should you choose? It may seem complex at first but if we break it down, the two main types of towbar are flange towbars and swan neck towbars. Flange towbars are often better suited to commercial towing and are a bit cheaper, whereas swan neck towbars have a sleeker design and are less bulky.

Depending on your vehicle, you may also have the option of a fixed towbar which is permanently attached to your vehicle or a detachable towbar which can be removed.

Compare the different types of towbars for sale below to see which one is right for you. But remember, not all towbar types are available for every vehicle.


Fixed Flange
The towball is bolted onto a faceplate and is permanently attached to your vehicle. This is ideal for serious towing, compatible with accessories and usually the cheapest option.

  • Tow and carry bikes at the same time
  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted
  • Towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Detachable Flange
Robust and versatile like the fixed flange, the detachable flange comes with the added benefit of being able to remove the towbar when you are not using it.

  • Removable and won’t trigger parking sensors when not towing
  • Tow and carry bikes at the same time
  • Towing couplings and accessories can be fitted
Fixed Swan Neck
With a sleeker design, the fixed swan neck is more pleasing to the eye. It is compatible with AL-KO stabilisers, however, you cannot tow and carry bikes at the same time.
  • Less likely to set off parking sensors
  • Slightly more expensive than flange towbar
  • Can’t be fitted with a bumper shield

 

Detachable Swan Neck

With the same visual appeal as the fixed swan neck, you are also able to remove this when you are not towing. But, you can’t tow and carry bikes at the same time.
  • Compatible with AL-KO stabilisers
  • Less likely to set off parking sensors
  • Can’t be fitted with a bumper shield
