Ben,

As far as I know, there are no aftermarket towbar options for the T31 yet, so only the Nissan one is available.

Dunno mate. Check with the dealer and post the price here before you buy it.

Re: how much are T31 towbars....?


ok i rang the dealer today

the first one said $995 fitted, so i rang another nissan dealer who said $675,
the second one also said i would be better off going to a towbar place to get the hayman reese,
so i phoned the towbar place, he said $550

i then asked him if they have to cut any holes etc,
he said they need to cut a hole in the bumper,
id this right......? would the factory nissan one need a hole cut....../

ive been looking around and havent seen too many cars with holes in the bumper

Hi Ben,

Here's the list price for our Nissan towbar (picked up last week).

Towbar (Class 4 Max 2000kg) $[sign in to see URL]

This price included fitting, electric plug and the adapter to go from rectangular (eastern states?) fitting to (SA; old style) round plug.

The dealer said the Nissan bar is made by Hayman Reese.

The Nissan bar fits under the rear bumper - no holes were cut for the bar. You can see a close-up photo on the Nissan accessories page ([sign in to see URL])

I don't like the sound of cutting the rear bumper. If the Nissan one is made by HR then an aftermarket HR one shouldn't need holes cut either.

cheers

David

Dave,

What Hayman Reece supplies to Nissan Australia as OEM may not necessarily be the same one they sell as aftermarket and this we have noticed with the T30 towbars where the Nissan one and Hayman Reece look completely different and use different fitting methods and fixing points.

For Sydney based members, the Online X-Trail Shop can obtain the Genuine Nissan towbar for the T31 at a price of $[sign in to see URL] (pick-up price) and this includes (the towbar assembly, towball chrome, towbar D shackle and towbar safety chain)

You would only need to pay for the price of fitting the towbar (which is around $80 at any 4WD shop) or the better option would be to fit it yourself and save money emoticon

Hey Jalal,
When will you be doing a Brisbane trip so that we Queenslanders can get such a great deal? You know, you could just load up a little box trailer and bring it all up with you emoticon
