It depends on the manufacturer of the towbar but typically it would only be about 3 or 4 bolts holding it to the chassis rails on each side, so 6-8 bolts in total.

If the towbar is a full width bar then it will be quite weighty but sometimes you can remove the rear bar from the brackets and then remove the brackets from the chassis which makes life a little easier.

If you aren't using the bar then it may be worth removing it for the weight gain, even if you can't sell it. Having said that......if it is a full width bar then it's probably worth leaving it in place for the protection factor!
