Tow Bars 2 Tow Cars

Has anybody had any dealing with a company called Tow-bars2Tow-cars in Lincoln. They do an A frame with an electronic braking system I have just purchased a new aygo to tow and seen the literature from this company and it looks very different from the norm Towtal, tow a car ect.

Any info would be most appreciated.

Cheers KrisM

I met a guy at the Lincoln Show who said, due to the very short a-frame, when he went around a tight corner the toad wing hit the corner of the motorhome and crunched the plastic! He was not impressed.

tow cars

Hi Krism

This is a copy of what I put on another thread;;
I have had the system fitted to my own Citreon C1 , and to date I am well impressed, From the time I first spoke to them ,to the time they finished the job they were very helpful and obliging,and made a seemless job ,when the a frame is not on the car you can hardly tell the car as been altered,the frame is a doddle to fit ,and very lightweight and fits neatly in a bag in the boot, the motor that operates the brakes fits unseen behind the brake pedal,there is also a breakaway cable that fits to a ring in the front grill and to the towbar , this operates the handbrake in the unlikely event of the car becoming detatched ,

All in all I am very impressed with it , regarding the reversing ,unlike some systems the brakes do not operate when reversing unless you apply the brakes in the motorhome , and providing there is not too much camber ,I have found reversing quite easy.

And I dont believe there is a corner that tight that the car will hit the motorhome, apart from down our hallway!!!

Hi had it fitted to our Aygo a month ago very good system. seems expensive but Graham the guvnor has put a lot of thought into this system and in my opinion is futureproof and with the debate about the legalities of a- frames is well worth the money. pepe

Thank you all for the Info

Bazza, pepe can I ask what you paid?

How long did take to fit?

Is there a brake light in the cab?


Cheers

towcar

Hi KrisM,

I had my new motorhome fitted with a tow bar and electrics and my Citreon C1 fitted with the A frame .I paid in total 2000 including vat.
The car was with them 1 day and the next day they did the motorhome ,and yes there is a light on the motorhome dash that comes on everytime the toads brakes are on

Armitages at Ferrybridge charged us 1,200 last year for an A frame and a tow bar, we took the car in dinner time one day, as we were on holiday and bought the car in York. They did the car and started on the MH and as it was a Friday they were good enough to get someone in on the Saturday morning to finish the MH off. We collected it back at half 11.

Vey happy with everything and good old fashioned family service.......we are going back next week for a tow bar on the new motorhome that we get later today yipppppppeeee.
