    Yes its a great bit of kit.extremely easy to connect,very lightweight at 8kgs.excellent and smooth electronic braking,not the cheapest on the market but compared to our old one from Towtal its in another league.
    Salop Towing 01743 467272 give them a call
    hope this helps

    Thanks for the info. I've called them; it does sound like a good piece of kit but at £2450 it's way more than I've budgeted for.

    Try Towbar2towcars near Grimsby. ..... we are on our second toad with their system.

    I have to say we have found them to be very knowledgeable and helpful with a great system.

    Just to add that they are also good with after sales service.

    Cripey Cripes!

    £2450 pays for a lot of taxi fares...

    (Does that price include the car?)

    I've tried 3 different a frames. Graham at Towbars2towcars the best in my opinion. No messing inside the car. Just put the A frame on and plugin wires. No towing points stuck out when solo. About £1850 including VAT.
