Morning, bit surprised that no one on the forum has had an A frame fitted or maybe they just missed my posting?

I'm thinking of getting one fitted to a 2018 basic Fiat 500 to be able to tow it behind our van. Three companies seem to stand out and they are, Tow-Bars 2 Tow-Cars, TAF Chesterfield, and LNB Towbars Bristol.

Would really appreciate it if anyone has had any dealings with any of these, to post their thoughts. After all there's nothing like first hand experience and personal advice.

Thanks in advance.

There's also Towtal in Stoke on Trent https://towtal.co.uk/a-frames/

But never had an A frame fitted so can't offer advice in that respect.

There will most probably be one or two 'fitters' at the Malvern show later this month if you want to see there work in person. https://www.outandaboutlive.co.uk/shows/show/the-western-motorhome-campervan-show/exhibitors

We had a tow bar fitted to our Adria at Towtal in Stoke on Trent.

Would I recommend them? NO! NO! NO!

We were told to be there at eight in the morning and then had to wait for the gates to be opened. They didn't start to install the tow bar till late morning and we were in their waiting room. The drinks machine was broken and we were never offered a drink from their offices.
The tow bar was fitted and it was very late afternoon before we left their premises.

Extremely poor customer service!!

Have a look at this.

Hi Pete

Just had my Citroen C1 converted at tow bars2to tow cars (https://www.tow-bars2tow-cars.com/) near Grimsby. All I can say is excellent service from start to finish. Dropped the car off at 8am and ready by 3.30pm same day. The A Frame is great and I cannot fault their service - very professional and friendly guys. I had done a fair bit of research on reviews before eventually deciding on them and it was a good choice (even though I live near Cambridge and was a bit of a trek).
There is a CL campsite about 2 miles away which was a bonus.
Cheers
Rob

Bear in mind you may need to be a member of the Caravan & Motorhome club to use the CL.

Hi - sorry this reply is a little late, however - Tow Bars to Tow Cars would have to be OUR recommended choice ! Reason ? We bought our 2007 Pug 107 and had Graham & his team convert it September 2009 - shortly after our Aug 2009 purchased new E695 Bessacarr. The reason of choice being as an old school (now geriatric) mechanic :- (a) Toyota's reliable chain driven camshaft engineering with manual gearbox :- (b) at the time only the Pug 107 (against the same Toyota Aygo or Citroen C1) had A/C as Standard fit (think hot France/Spain etc) so greater S/H choice. Since then we have travelled in excess of 25000 miles towing the 107 all around Britain plus 10 successive years through France and well into Spain. As anyone with a TB2TCars conversion will confirm, It really does what it says on the Tin - PLUS and its BIG PLUS the weight of the 'A frame' weighs around half of the 'Over- Run' A frame systems at around 10 Kgs. ALSO with the 'A frame' and its 2 'screw in' eye bolts removed, the front of the car look virtually bog standard... Go for it you won't be disappointed
