A fully fitted standard tow bar on pre 2010 vehicles is from £380.00 inc VAT.
Swan neck tow bar on pre 2010 vehicles is from £445 inc VAT (this will work with the original VW reversing sensors)
Removable tow bar on pre 2010 vehicles is from £660 inc VAT (this will work with the original VW reversing sensors)
From 2010 the GP (face lift) model transporter has a ECU stability program which needs to be activated when fitted tow bars. This is not only a safety issue but is also essential for VW warranty. To do this there is significantly more wiring and a separate internal box which is required, but the ECU also needs re-program (which does lots of clever things like disabling factory revering sensors when towing). As a result VW will often charge at least £1,400 – 1,800 for this. We use exactly the same kit so everything is the same as having it fitted at a dealership for £900 and is fully warranted.
We can fit a tow bar to your VW T5 Transporter (including the new T5 GP/facelift) which as standard includes a single towing electric socket. All options are available such as 13 pin sockets and double sockets. Please contact us if wanting something specific.
