    For anyone who is quite handy and is contemplating fitting a tow bar to their Elddis Motorhome.

    I have just fitted the dedicated Witter Tow Bar together with dedicated wiring loom/kit. It is incredibly easy to do - apart from scrabbling around underneath to feed wiring up to battery compartment.

    Should also say it didn't cost me a penny! my son paid. We let him and his partner use it and he wanted to tow his motorbike. Now we have the potential benefit of being able to tow a small motorbike ourselves :BigGrin:

    Is your MH pre-April 2012 registered or is your towbar type approved ?

    I don't think Witter make type approved for MHs as yet.

    Mine is a 2010 and I think I am right in saying that Witter have been producing a 'Whole Vehicle Type Approved' tow bar for the Elddis for a little while now.

    Chassis underneath had already pre-drilled holes to precisely line up chassis extension brackets and as stated before made for a very easy fit.

    I've attached video - http://youtu.be/nylTj7i81zY

    You are quite right about Witter and Elddis.
    Witter have supplied the tow bars for Elddis for quite some time now.
    The reason that the holes are pre-drilled and line up perfectly is that Witter also supply the chassis extensions to Elddis.
    Quite a clever piece of marketing really. :thumb: :BigGrin:
