Hi incabluepilot,

Can you answer a few questions :

1.  Who made the tow bar ?
2.  Is the tow bar "approved" in any way ?
3.  Is there any load rating for the towbar ?
4.  What are trhe details of the trailer ? ( Appreciate that it is not included ! )
4.  Where are the attachment points on the Trophy ?

I've grabbed the Photo's off eBay and attached them for anyone considering this  :028:


Cheers  :821:

Hi thanks for uploading phots, I am not to good on this site.
The main components of the tow bar were supplied by Watsonian squire, who fitted it to our BMW R1150rt and they also supplied the trailer cost.
The trailer cost was £1000.
The tow bar and fitting about £500.
I myself adapted the fitting to suit the Trophy, we toured all over Europe in june covering 3,000 miles doing sussten, and gerlos pass and the gros glockner, trailer towed great striate and true up to 85 mph.
I would also consider selling the trailer for £600 if your interested as we have now a Goldwing because of medical difficulties, but the Trophy is an amazing touring machine.
The fixing points are from the main frame behind the gearbox, under the rear seat, and each rear foot peg plate, very strong.
