How Much Does It Cost To Get A Tow Bar Put On?

Postby pulsar on Mon 26/Jan/09 5:41pm

I've got a station wagon and have been looking at bike racks that strap to the back, and they are nearly 2 hundy, I'm wondering if anyone has had a towbar put on and about how much did it cost you?

Hey Pulsar - I paid about $300 at Wellington Towbar Services - http://www.wtbs.co.nz/ That was for just the towbar - no electrics. (It was about $80 more for the electrics) This was maybe two years ago now.

Would recommend them :+)

It could become an asset to have it there and ....bumpers can be plastic welded and resprayed.

I got a towbar for our Libero from Trademe.

It might have been about $80.

Have a look around for a secondhand one - Trademe(put a wanted add in), wreakers etc.
We don't have it wired up as it doesn't need it for a bike rack and if I get say some soil in a trailer people can see the higher stationwagon lights over the trailer.

It's hard enough finding EG9 parts without chopping them up! Plus I'd rather put one on my missus' car so I don't have to drive mine in the gravel...

found mine thru an online car club for around $125 & then paid $40 to get fitted (& also a little more to alter my performance muffler dammit!).

Am stoked with mine, as it's a factory OEM one made by bestbars, and it has a removeable tongue so no more bashed shins!

have you tried the honda forums & also trade me?
