Which towbar?

Post by matt__dicko » Thu Mar 08, 2018 4:34 pm

Hi all, after some advice before I buy a towbar. I’ve been looking at various towbars to get fitted and decided to go for a detachable one. I want one which can’t be seen when I take it off the car. Has anyone got any pictures of what there’s looks like without it on?
Undecided whether to get a detachable horizontal or vertical one http://pandmtowbars.com/catalog#/vehicl ... 14_onwards

Any advice and pictures will be appreciated.

Matt, can I suggest that you just enter in “Search” - Tow Bar and take a read of what has been covered before as I am sure the facts you need are there. Nissan also supply the parts you are looking at. Attached is just an example for you - Dave ;)

That’s for the reply Dave, I have had a search but didn’t find any results which I was after.

This is mine, installed 4 years ago (http://autohak.com.pl/upload/instrukcja ... 661996.pdf)
It is absolutely invisible, no cuts or any modifications is needed. It fits perfectly.

I highly recommend this full option tow bar electronics from Erich Jaeger for Nissan Qashqai J11. It is full 13pin kit that fits factory connectors. Extremely easy to fit, zero idle current, supports all Nissan functions (trailer turn lights displayed on the dashboard, disconnects fog lamp if trailer connected, emergency turn lights supported on trailer if car is off, etc.).

Hi. I hope you don’t mind me jumping in on this but I have just bought a 2012 J10 qashqai and I am going to fit a detachable tow bar. I would prefer the vertical fitting one as they are invisible when the ball is removed but they are more expensive then the horizontal ones. If I was to get the horizontal one would it mean cutting a chunk of the bumper off or will it sit beneath it? I am trying to keep costs down as much as possible so if anyone knows the cheapest place for tow bars that would be great. Having looked at PandM towbars which mat posted a link to they seem the cheapest I’ve seen so far. Thanks in advance

check the supplier I mentioned for my J11 tow bar, I'm sure they also have equiv. for J10.

Hi Aaron,

I'm not sure if you've bought one at all, but I've not long ago bought mine from Milner Off Road.

Hope this helps, mate.
