The two bolts on the rear panel are the originals - I asked this - they make use of these to give a vertical support to the bar.  The bumper is removed, the tow bar offered up, it makes use of a further hole in the chassis leg, and then the bumper is offered up again and adds in 2 further extended bolts.

Yes this will fit an AquaBay.


I had the standard Danbury tow bar fitted a few weeks ago (also supplied by Watling) and the fittings are identical.

the sceptics in our family truly believe that we have approached growing up as optional - they think were mad but we don't care. The smile on my better halfs face when she is driving her bus is just amazing .

Now have it booked in for next week  Smile

I've been trying to locate a cycle carrier that also allows full use of the tow bar to pull a trailer. The last picture in your write up Tim appears to do just that. Do you happen to know who makes it?

If you want to tow a trailer you will need a higher version of the one Tim has in his photo. Fits exactly the sake way also made by Pendle. We have one but not got a photo available at the moment.

Take a look at MaxxRaxx (www.maxxraxx.co.uk) too, we have one and it has lots of useful features.

This is us fully loaded with bikes and trailer in Portsmouth (queueing for the ferry) last year. It's a bit dark but you get the idea. We had the rack on with just one bike at the Holloween doo too.

I remember seeing yours at the Halloween bash Tallulah (it's about all I remember! drunken ). Am I right in thinking that it tilts to allow access to the boot?

Yep, it can be tilted with or without bikes on it and has a padlock on the towbar mount and another along with a security cable that passes through all the bikes to keep everything all locked up and safe.

Eddie had his Watling detachable tow bar fitted today.
I turned up at 07.30 and was met by a friendly chap who said everything's ready for you. Great service.
The job was completed by 09.30 and it's first class!

Just asked Paul Brand to fit the same Watling detachable towbar on Bumble as Eddie and Max. Paul's going to have Bumble to do a few things and it not only saves a trip to St. Alban's, but a very early start affraid

Thinking of buying a teardrop caravan so will need a  tow bar and iv'e just read your post Tim.
looks and sounds good, you've had it fitted a couple of years now,
would you still recommend one to go on a 11 plate aqua bay, or do you know of anything else that's come on to the market since....thanks.

Had one fitted in Feb and would strongly recommend. The good news is that you can order the kit directly from Watling and then get a local fitter to put it on for you.
