    Hi all I have a swift 630l and have been thinking of putting a tow bar on it so I can carry a small moped.

    problem is how far it needs to be extended had a quote for 500 + vat are people mad for a couple of bits of metal.

    I already have a bike platform just need the tow bar bit so it can all fit together ?

    but are they safe.
    what if the bike snaps the back of the motor home??

    help:Doh:please

    Be very careful about the weight. Tow bars are designed to do just that, tow. They can carry a certain amount of down weight, so be aware that heavy objects can and do break the frame. Simsy

    this is what im worried about i could build one myself but if it snaped then what.
    if i get a company to build one would i be able to go back if it all went wrong or would they just get out of it anyway.??:Doh:
