Hi All,

Ive just got a 2005 Range Rover Sport 2.7 and was wondering if the factory fitter tow bar will pull my twin axle bailey 6 series ?

Yep. Used to work for Land Rover and fitted them to both the Range and Discovery.

If itís a swan neck towbar yes. If itís a flange towbar then you need to ensure the towball is the extended neck Alko stabiliser hitch compatible type. If not there is a risk front of hitch being damaged at extreme articulation. Easy diy job to fit correct towball if you have the spanners.

I've got a removable tow ball on mine and I've towed my 1600 caravan up to Scotland, Wales and all over England with np problems at all, mine is a 3 ltr and it's a brilliant towcar.

Hi, I use the Land Rover detachable tow ball on my 2009 Range Rover sport towing a twin axle Bailey Senator Carolina and it is fine. Just one point, there was a recall a while back regarding excessive play in the socket and Land Rover were fitting the full fixed heavy duty tow bar if they found excessive wear. Mine was OK, but it might be worth having it checked out as there were instances of the tow ball detaching from the socket in the worst cases.

Hi
The check is free, if the car does not have proof of being checked.
It was a recall on all Disco, RRS, RR

I have a fixed bar as i do not trust it at all.
