Anyone have any recommendations for tow bar (tow hitch) fitting? I have a Honda Pilot which has the tow bracket fitted as standard but need the 'swan neck'. Spoke to Honda service and i may as well have asked if they stock particle accelerators, not a clue!

additional towing question i want to tow my boat which at the moment is stored at UAQ marine club. Obviousley the trailer doesnt have lights fitted, they would get a little damp during launch, but what are the laws for towing? Detachable light board, number plate needed on rear? if lights leagally needed then need the electric sorting as well.

Not sure about the laws here, but there are MANY a trailer for boats, jet ski's, etc. that are dumped in the water every day with lights attached. You just have to use the correct trailer lights for the purpose. Of course, it isn't without maintenance. I seemed to have to do some level of rewiring every year on my trailers.

Personally, I would not be towing any kind of trailer without lights!

Agree about the lights really only needed to tow it home during the summer months as its permanently dry bertherd in UAQ and wanted to give it a bit of TLC at home rather than trapezing up there at a weekend.
