Retrofit a tow bar to VW California

Post by thevenetian » Thu Feb 22, 2018 4:28 pm

Does anyone know the difference between a VW supply and fit detachable tow bar and one thats fitted by Westfalia using original parts including electrics. I understand that there is a cost difference but struggling to see why VW need to do some work in the kitchen area or am I missing something.

Any help will be appreciated.

VW don't need to do work with the kitchen, they need to order the correct parts. Westfalia manufactures the OE parts used by VW and they have produced a wiring kit that runs under the van, removing the need to do anything with the kitchen.

PFJones is normally a good place to get the parts.
