Any owners out there who have the above van can you advise if a 'standard' buy towbar will fit the 'van or is it a case of having one produced (Towal etc)?

Hi Machra

It now depends on whether "Type Approval" applies or not.

EU Legislation change 20th April 2011 (MMM Oct 2012 page 190)

"Any motorhome registered as a type-approved vehicle can only use towbars / rearbars which have been tested against the regulations "


If the regulation applies, you will need to contact Burstner for info, but expect a hefty bill, especially if you also want the Can-bus connection for the electrics (that alone is c£125.)


If not, as previously mentioned Watlings are as close to you as any & very knowledgeable. They may also have a local fitting company.
