The retractable towbar

for the aftermarket

the invisible towbar

Out of sight, ready to go: The range of retractable towbars from Westfalia-Automotive are convenient and fantastically easy to use.

The benefits of a retractable towbar

  • Compact: The compact construction and special swivel method make these towbars compatible even for cars with limited available space. 
  • Convenience: The plug on the ball rod makes it easy to wire the trailer or bike carrier into the car's electrical system.
  • Immediately ready for use & almost invisible: The towbar swivels out in seconds, either electronically or manually, only when needed — the rest of the time it is hidden inconspicuously under the fender.
