Hi All

I would like to fit a tow bar to my 2013 van.

Does anybody now if there is a brand of tow bar that does not require the bumper to be cut ?

Or do they all miss the bumper ?


just bought a bosal one (£80+VAT) with swan neck and instructions says No bumper cut required. I'd say most types are like this
Bosal are pretty good for towbars :thumbsup: (+exhausts).
i fitted one to my focus and it's what ford supply but a lower price Smile
Use a Ryder smart relay. Confusedtudy:
Go for a swan neck, no bumper cut & look neat.
Thanks chaps Confusedalut:


We have a Witter with a flange bought from an ebay seller, less than 1hr to fit the bar.
just fitted the bosal towbar .. easiest one i've ever done and electrics work 100%

Thanks for the update Klberlingo .

Looks like Ill go for the bosal kit .


Jon Confusedalut:
I have just got a couple of prices to fit a towbar, Gt Towing want £300 and Towbars direct want £218, is this about right.
If that is to supply and fit then that's about the norm. Go with the cheapest, the bar has to be to industry spec anyway.
So where does this bit go then ?
