Hi guys

Need to fit a towbar to my van that will be used to tow a 24ft boat.

Anyone know any reputable companies in DBN ?

Cheers,
Nic

As far as I know the OEM towbars are made by Bosal. I would look for a local installer of Bosal.

Also check that it is rated for that towing weight .... a 24 footer is a bit heavier than the average leisure craft. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Also have a look at Brink towbars which is EU Towbars with usuall higher tow capacity ratings than local Towbars.
