LNB Towbars & Vehicle Extras Limited is a specialist in European Type Approved Motorhome Towbars. They supply, fit and distribute products from more towbar manufacturers than anyone else in the UK, including leading brands from Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. That means our range of motorhome towbars, chassis extensions and electric kits are bound to include the right options for your vehicle.
Working closely with LNB Towbars & Vehicle Extras Limited, we make sure your towbar complies with all the relevant safety legislation. Motorhomes registered from April 2012 can only be fitted with a European Type Approved towbar. This means that the towbar has gone through a rigorous test procedure to ensure that it is fit for the job.
Towbars that have gone through the type approval process will be issued with a type approval number and a type approval label that must be positioned on the towbar. All the towbars we supply are fully Type Approved.
Having a non-Type Approved towbar on a 2012 or newer vehicle could leave you open to prosecution under the Road Traffic Act and invalidate your insurance. Also, as towbars are now covered in an MOT, your tester should look for the approval label and may fail your MOT if this is not present. If you’re looking for advice on remaining compliant, then don’t hesitate to contact Glide-Rite Products for more information.
