Finding the right type of towbar for your vehicle will depend on your application this is why seeking expert advice from FiveStar Tow bars will help you  navigate the options available. Whether you’re towing a rubbish-filled trailer, or your caravan on a trip around Australia, or your beloved horses on a float your tow bar needs to comply with Australian Design Rules (ADR) standards and suit your towing requirements. No matter what type of vehicle you own, whether it’s a deluxe European vehicle or a domestic favourite, we stock and install a variety of tow bars from the best brands including:

  • Hayman Reese
  • BTA Towbars And Accessories
  • Tow Link
  • West falia

All towbars are Australian Design Rules (ADR) tested, compliant and approved, ensuring the best in quality standards.

Choosing the right type of tow bar

Choose from the best range of fixed, removable and retractable tow bars in Melbourne. When selecting a towbar for your vehicle, it’s important to select one that has the appropriate weight capacity for its primary purpose. Standard models with a bolt on tongue are best suited to relatively light towing of weights up to 1250kgs; a light trailer. Heavy duty hitch models can pull much greater weights including horse floats, caravans and boats, thanks to the removable hitch and receiver pin design. Australian law prevents you from towing a weight that is greater than the smallest acceptable weight capacity for both your car and your towed vehicle. This means that if your car has a towing capacity of 1250kgs and your trailer is compliance rated to 900kgs GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass), the maximum you can tow is 900kgs. FiveStar Towbars will ensure you receive five star service and advice with all your tow bar needs.
