Motorhome towbars are a costly niche market. The volume of steel used, volume of sales vs approval costs, time taken to install, and size of the market all contribute to making motorhome towbars more costly than that of an average car.
From 2012 onwards, motorhomes that have towbars fitted must be fitted with a European Type Approved towbar. This means that the towbar has gone through a rigorous test procedure to ensure that it is fit for the job.
Towbars that have gone through the type approval process will be issued with a type approval number and a type approval label must be positioned on the towbar
Generally there are three types of towbar; Swan neck, Detachable Swan neck, and Flange. The most common type approved motorhome towbar is a swan neck design. We supply them all.
Motorhomers that have had pre-2012 motorhomes will be more familiar with a full-width rear protection towbar. This type of towbar is unlikely to pass the European Type Approval tests because of the rearward weight.
However, if you decide to have a flange towbar fitted, then it’s possible for us to supply a custom made towbar mounted rear protection bar as an accessory to the towbar. As illustrated in the pictures below.
You can expect to pay between £550 to £900 incl Vat for a Type Approved motorhome towbar most being around £600.
