Detachable Tow Bars
from £650.00

Detachable towbar systems have grown increasingly popular as they have the added benefit of not being on the vehicle when not required, thus maintaining the aesthetic look of the vehicle. When removed from the vehicle very little of the towbar is visible, you won't bang your legs when using the boot and there is no interference with the reversing sensors.

Westfalia detachable towbars are easy to fit and use, reliable, and are Europe's benchmark for this product type.

The Westfalia automatic, quick release, vertical detachable towbar has been the first choice for vehicle manufacturers OEM and OES equipment for nearly 25 years. During this time the design has evolved and is accepted within the towbar industry as the premier product in its class in Europe.


The installation is nearly always invisible and leaves minimal bumper cut, when a bumper cut is necessary. Our close links to vehicle manufacturers allows us to advise the necessary original equipment cover plates, if these are available. This type of towbar allows easy removal and fitting of the towball neck via a quick release system.

The neck of the towbar is inserted vertically (from below) into the housing fitted to the vehicle. The removable towball is secured against theft by a lock and key. The system uses a patented three ball system that holds it secure in the housing, without any play or wear. This ensures total safety, easy operation and the highest level of security and quality.

Westfalia detachable towbars are easy to fit and use, reliable, and are Europe's benchmark for this product type.
