OUR RECOMMENDED TOWBAR & HITCH MANUFACTURERS / SUPPLIERS

(1) DMC Sidecars (Location: USA)

You will note the heavy, sturdy materials used in construction in their range of towbars. We favour this level of over-engineering, to ensure the exceeding of all ADR and Australian Standard requirements.

 

(2) BUSHTEC (Location : USA)

Please note that our recommendation of towbars from BUSHTEC is for selected towbars only. Specifically, for those of heavier construction, such as for the:

  • Kawasaki GTR1400 Concours
  • YAMAHA FJR1300 and
  • HONDA ST1300.

We will make further recommendations on our recommended TOWBAR page, from this point forward, on a case by case basis.

* SPECIAL NOTE *
Tow-ball mountable towbars should be chosen, rather than pin type towbars, to allow their use in towing our trailers. A horizontal to vertical adapter plate needs to be attached, to allow for vertical positioning of our receiver coupling. In the case of a pin type towbar, rather than a tow-ball carrying type towbar, it would require a modification to allow the fitment of our receiver, or that of an adapter plate to carry it.

 

(3) HITCHDOC (Location: USA)

Note their use of plate steel in the construction of their range of towbars / hitches. You can have a closer look at them, via the sample pictures tab at the bottom of each bike type in the hitch list.
