    Hi

    Posted this elsewhere on the forums as well. But. I am intrigued by the Hobby 600/750 series, and wondered if anyone had any idea IF there is a Towbar supplier out there OR where the Securing points are on that chassis. The base vehicle in question is the Fiat (@ 2006) chassis. Any Other issues with this combination? For Example, I heard that some gearbox reverse gear issues and water ingress to the Engine compartment not draining?

    Part of the ongoing research program for my downsizing!!!

    Pete

    No gearbox issues or water in engine bay issues of note on a 2006 model. Tow bar will probably need to be specially made to suit. Isn't the 600 based on Ford Transit? and I think the 750 is the tandem axle model on Fiat so AlKo chassis.

    I've got a Hobby and had my done by Mike Parkinson (business near Preston) if you search on here will find his info, very good quality and workmanship of a high standard
    Cost me about £350/400, but compared to others very competitive got recommended by a hobby dealer he's done work for over the years

    There won't be any specific mounting points.
    Every towbar will be made to fit whatever secure points can be found.

    Dave, This Particular one is Definitely a Fiat. (2007)

    Hi PaPa. Sounds like I will have to get the Angle Grinder and Welder Out then?. You still got the R-V?

    BTW any idea if these are Direct or Canbus ? when it comes to Trailer lighting?
