Hi Chris, does the towball swing down or is it a permanent fixture :?: Once mine arrives and have run it in, I can't wait myself to see how it will tow my caravan. But it may well be next year now.chris williamson said:i will measure tomorrow and reply, possibly with in those limits but the hi side i would say?
thanks for your help, tows really well by the way, not run in yet?

Have you got any pics Chris :?: :?: Have you any weight in the boot at all.....awning :?:chris williamson said:hi yes i had the factory swiveling tow bar really easy to use , but its height is over 500mm and if you put the full 100kgs nose weight on, the suspension deflection is only about 25mm making the front of the van high, i think i will speak to the dealership tomorrow.also you will see if using a stabiliser hitch there is no room for error as the ball is exceptionally close to the bumper.
Ok Chris.....thankschris williamson said:evening spoke to dealership today and awaiting reply. no pictures and the weight in the boot 50 kgs maybe.
but the starting height is where i think the problem is, i have had many tow cars none with this hitch height inc ,jeep cherokees.
i will keep you posted and try to learn how to upload ? photos.
Thanks for the heads up on that Roy...I will have to remember that tip, as I've never had auto-hold beforeRoy said:Hi Chris
You are welcome. Excellent bit of kit although it is very close to min requirements of alko hitch. I unhitch in the same manor as you but when reversing car to van to hitch up i also take off auto hold to give better control at very very slow speed! Not much room for error!!
