Like a few other people on this forum, I am not having much luck finding a tow bar for my S85 van,
I have spoken to Witter and eventually after saying they don't make one for the hijet
I got to speak to someone in technical and they said they might make some more in the future
but it might be the next 6 months, year or 2 years !
I asked if they could let me have / buy a copy of the drawings so I could make one but he said he couldn't
as it was type approved ?
So I wondered if any one here has one stashed away that could be measured, borrowed or hired
so I can make one and then depending on the job I might make a small batch.

One of the fellas on the FB Hijet Page just this week bought a tow-bar kit (£147.00) from this link ....

On a Saturday?? Did you tell them that you were HRH Chain drive or Sir Chain-drive.?

I bet you told them your name was Phillip and you had decided to give up driving and you needed to be towed around Windsor or Sandringham by a Hi-Jet, in your BlackRange Rover as "The Steersman" so that you can keep up your driving skills. Lucky he didn't have the "S" missed off Skills!! bounce bounce

It was rather refreshing to talk to some one direct and not to have to go through some lengthy
telephone menu and also to talk to an engineer that said we make them !
I will report back in a couple of weeks when it arrives.

Well done Oldie. Nice bit of Detective work there. We'll have to make you up to Inspector Oldie.
