Only ever had one which was already on a car when I bought it, came in handy when a French driver was looking at an aircraft take off when I was driving at Farnborough airshow instead of looking at me.

When he hit the back of my car I sustained no damage but the tow bar demolished the front of his car including the radiator.

Did bang my leg on it a few times though.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

Had one fitted to the mark 3 espace to tow a caravan.

Next espace had one fitted - only use it for a bike carrier that I already had. Oh and used it once to tow an enormous twin axle trailer.

Towbars are always handy if you want to back into a wall!!
