  • Tow bar possibilities?

    I'm looking to carry 3 bikes on my Zafira VXR and keen to use a Thule tow bar mounted carrier rather than the roof - need this for the roof box! I'm aware that there are tow bars for the SRI but conscious that the rear bumper of the VXR looks larger and lower.
    Does anyone know if there is a detachable tow bar that can be fitted to the VXR without completely making a mess of and cutting huge holes in the rear bumper as asking most reputable companies seems to draw a blank response?
    Thanks

    Car is probably a little early to have the tow bar peeps ready with a version but I've no doubt that they will become available (assume Vxl doe their own one?) I've found emailing direct asking them to let me know when a certain car was covered does get a resonse. Their email addy is on their website.

      Thanks - Local dealer a little unclear if possible and most major tow bar companies have not responded to my enquiries so I'll try vauxhall directly and see if I get some clearer feedback.
      Cheers.

            Can you provide any further guidance on the model number for the tow bar I would need as fitted to the one being built due end Feb as outlined in your earlier post?
            Do you happen to know if it requires much cutting of the bumper?
            Many thanks.

                When I bought my GSi Zafira the salesman and I nearly came to blows over this very subject. They said no probs we can supply and fit a towbar with no bumper cut when I ordered. Good job the dealers workshop called me the day before I took delivery to ask if I minded a 2" x 2" cut out in the bumper. Eventually I got one from http://www.towbarsdirect.co.uk/Vauxhall.htm. They don't list one yet for your car but if you contact them they can call their suplliers to ask for the latest info. Maybe get your car used for a pattern
