Hello all. I have just purchased a little tipping trailer for soil and wondered if anyone has details of an M series Tow bar. Its a handy little trailer for nipping back and forward to the garden centre for soil and planting trips The little M isn't getting too much use so i was thinking of using it for the garden centre trips and fun outings killing 2 birds with one stone.. I wonder if there are any other likeminded TVR owners who tow garden tipping trailers to better utilise their cars smile particularly for soil collections.

Hello Neil,
Some years ago (probably 10-15) I asked Adrian@ about possibility of a tow bar for my Taimar, to tow my racing dinghy - all up 150kg inc trailer.
He commented that there had been a tow bar in his stores for years, previously used by a glider pilot but had been sold only a few weeks earlier.
Unfortunately I cannot remember any details except that it used "existing mounting points" on the chassis - so would have been easy to fit.
I find my Taimar very useful for carrying all sorts of stuff.....but would draw the line at soil unless in sealed bags.
Regards
MikeS

Hi Neil,

Try these guys - https://www.watling-towbars.co.uk

Strange the things you remember but I knew I'd seen a catalogue that had Vixen towbars listed. Same company and still going. Seem classic friendly.

Good luck,
Gary
