If you like to go on bike tours further away from home, own a caravan or a boat, are an avid horse lover with your own animal, a large family that needs more space - you need extra special trailers for everything. But to attach trailers, bike racks and luggage baskets to the car, another important component is necessary - the trailer hitch. It is not part of the standard equipment of your vehicle, but you can quickly and easily order the right type for your car from QParts24.
There are currently 3 different solutions for towbars. The rigid, removable and folding towbar. The difference lies in the connection between ball head and base support. The cheapest solution is the rigid trailer hitch, i.e. an integral part, consisting of a ball head and carrier. After mounting, the carrier remains rigidly at the rear of the vehicle, which limits the mobility a bit. A more advanced variant is the removable towbar, which allows the carrier to be removed from the ball head. This system is useful for drivers who occasionally drive a trailer and do not want to influence the parking aid through the pole. Unfortunately, one has to reckon with a slightly higher cost. Finally, there is the highest by price, but also the most effective variant for frequent trailer users. When using the folding towbar, the dismantling is completely omitted. The whole construction can be folded away easily and practically.
It is important to know how a tow bar is constructed. It consists of a ball head, which is usually 50mm in size, and a metal arch that connects it to the body. The whole towbar sticks out from the car. As the car gets longer through the trailer, it is important to practice driving in advance. Note that the driving license class B allows driving with a trailer with 750kg of maximum mass. 2 important factors in the selection of the tow bar are the maximum vertical load and the trailer load. If the trailer is pulled, the lighting of the car must be extended to the trailer. This requires electrical kits. These can be found together with trailer hitches and all other spare parts in our QParts24 online shop. We advise you to have the mount carried out in a professional workshop, as this is not easy for laymen. Order all the required parts at low cost and quickly in our shop.
