Swan Neck  With a built in towball to fit most hitches including the Alko Hitch, the Swan Neck towbar is suitable for towing both trailers and caravans. The electrics are mounted at the base of the neck just under the bumper. The Swan Neck is able to accept ball mounted cycle carriers but is unable to tow at the same time.
Especially designed for frequent use. They are guaranteed to function through a long and demanding life.

Dedecated or specific wiring kits
13 Pin electrics      This is a new system for newer caravans combining both the 12n and 12s sockets. It works in the same way as the Twin electrics with the same relays fitted. The 13 pin plug twists and locks into place making it more secure than the conventional socket. Converters are available to convert your 13 pin back to the conventional 7 pin sockets if you tow trailers, or use light boards that use the common 7 pin plugs.

We are able to supply and fit a wide range of 7 & 13 pin electrics which when installed, interface and communicate directly with the vehicle's management systems. This enables the manufacturer's towing safety features in todays modern motor vehicle to function.

Trailer Stability Program or TSP
Braking Functions

Parking Sensors
Cruise control or A.C.C.
