Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.


Ford Transit Courier Van Electric Kits

Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Van to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.

Electric kits for Ford Transit Courier Van

We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Van, like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.

Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your Van and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.

Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.
