Hi
Had a Detachable Westfalia on an A1 with simple electrics just wired into the loom with interface relay, no issues.

Current car is Q2 I ordered a Westfalia but was actually supplied with a Tow-Trust removeable bar as Westfalia was on extended delivery at that time. Had dedicated wiring loom and programming this time. All done by a local independant who did the work at home, all in for £425.

No issues towing an old school trailer with bulbs in which case the car detects the trailer and I get dashboard indication of turns. When I use a towbar mounted bike rack with LED lights, the current draw is too low so the car does not detect that anything is attached.

The Q2 did not require any bumper cut, already a hole in the right place for the bar and socket.

I now prefer the Tow-Trust bar and would order this type again in preference to the Westfalia. Attaching and removal seems easier and the lock and key is superior.

Will definitely look at the Tow-Trust bar, thanks.

The detachable one is about 200 cheaper than the Westfalia one, unfitted. The local towbar and auto electrics place should be able to fit it.

Actually ended up with the Westfalia one fitted at the local auto electrics place. Seems easy enough to fit and detach and nothing is visible when it is detached, pleased with it. Cost just over £600 fitted .
