Auto Sleeper Excelsior town bar info required

Post by moonlightman on Thu Jul 07, 2016 9:04 am

Hi folks can anyone help me find someone to manufacture and fit a towbar to fit my vehicle. I am in Norfolk but don't mind travelling for the right parts. My Excelsior has the drop down Boot door at back in centre and I would like to keep the use of, but if I get the correct towbar fitted then I could manage without the boot.

Towsure is usually a good place to start for the towbar and bits.
Whoever does the service for you should be able to fit without any problem, Towsure always provide all the instructions. I would be surprised if they do not already have the drawings for the towbar you require.

My Legend has the opening boot and a tow bar.  The bar was made by Bridgewater Trailer Centre but you should find others who can do the same.  It was designed to allow the locker lid to open fully.  Once fitted the two steadies have their heads made inaccesible to the usual handle so they provided me with a ratchet handle and socket to fit.  I had the bar made full width as a 'bottom step' to the roof ladder but you could have a narrower one that wouldn't do this.  When I was looking for a supplier I came up with two firms in the Bournemouth/Poole area and one around Manchester who could also do the job.
