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


In September the Nissan dealer in Perth said $1100.00 to fit genuine. I don't think so! I phoned around for supply only at around $400.00 to $500.00, then found Auto Extra who supplied a Hayman Reece for $340.00. Snapped it up, came complete with all fitting instructions.

Had the HR towbar fitted today emoticon

I also asked the techie about your query - the T31 towbar fits into the chassis rail, whereas the T30 simply bolts up under the body, making the former stronger and more durable. He also said that there are four different WD systems available (each dependant on what weight you are towing). It was also recommended that the sway controller be used if towing a long trailer/caravan (and HR do two different types). The techie suggested that you contact your local distributor directly to determine which is the best setup for you.

I hope this helps.

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


Hello to all

I have read with interest this topic about towbars for the new model T31 considering the problems that occured with the previous model and I can see by the photos posted that Nissan Australia just may have got it right this time. From what I can see the insertion of the towbar into the chassis rail has to be far superior to the T30 version of the Genuine Nissan Towbar and certainly the owners of the T31 can have more confidence that the unit they are towing will not decide to separate from the vehicle and go bush on them having cracked the chassis.

Cheers Mal
Best wishes for the festive season, and a Happy New Year to everyone

Hi Stephen,

Thank you very much for your time and effort in your response. The photos are really helpful.
I think for my situation a Hayman Reece system may be the best as I can use a sway control system. It looks very similar to the Nissan hitch that Jalal showed me.

The official response from HR is no WD systems which is really disappointing, however your installer was mentioning the use of them. Was he promoting them of the record? I will install airbags for the rear suspension to help a little.
Did you use a genunine Nissan wiring harness? I have reverse sensors so it was recommended to me that I use it.
Were you happy with the price ? I have been quoted $820 & $850. which includes $170 just to instal the harness which I thought was a little expensive.
Thanks again for your response-really helpful
David

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


As with Stephens exy with the Hayman & Reece tow bar the price Stephen has on his members pride for a supply and fit for a T31 is still a current price of $491.00 and they come to you anywhere in Brisbane as well.

When I approached them at the recent caravan and camping show and asked the question about flush fitting the trailer plug into the back bumper bar they said they would accommodate me on that request ,So soon I will have to knuckle down and get one.

Regards Scot emoticon

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


HI All,
I was talking to a friend about how the T30 tow bar is fitted compared to the T31, they were impressed on the big improvement - just like we all are.

He mentioned something about the "max tow ball download" - can someone explain to me what that means?

Max towball download I believe is 50kg for the T31.

Towball download is the maximum weight that should be placed onto the towball. ie: the weight of the trailer at the hitch where it contacts the towball.

Did some searching on the net and found this

Well I did find a pic although when I click on Insert Image it wants a URL - Jalal any ideas?

...Anyway on the pic it says 200kg for the max towball download, and it also says for trailer towing only. Does that mean you cant tow boats/caravans?

Hopefully I can upload the pics to show everyone
