Land Rover/Range Rover Defender ATV Towbars
The Land Rover/Range Rover Defender ATV was first released in 1999. To determine which variant of Land Rover/Range Rover Defender you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
Land Rover/Range Rover Defender ATV Nose Weight
ATV models made between 1999 and 2019 have a minimum nose weight of 250 kg and a maximum nose weight of 250 kg.
What does nose weight mean?
Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. 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.
Land Rover/Range Rover Defender ATV Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your ATV to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for Land Rover/Range Rover Defender ATV
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your ATV, 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 ATV 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.

We will alert you as to whether your ATV requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.
Does my vehicle need a software update?
Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your ATV can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local Land Rover/Range Rover dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.

What is towing capacity?
Towing capacity is the weight that your ATV is capable of towing safely, but it can vary even across the same model of car. It is important to note that the capacity of the towbar and the towing capacity of the ATV may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
