All you need to know about towbars for MAN TGE
MAN first introduced the TGE into their range in 2017. The MAN TGE is available as a Chassis Cab, or Van. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your MAN TGE, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of MAN TGE below.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Towbars
The MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) was first released in 2017. To determine which variant of MAN TGE you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Nose Weight
Chassis Cab(All) models made vehicles made after 2017 have a minimum nose weight of 120 kg and a maximum nose weight of 140 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.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Chassis Cab(All) to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All)
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Chassis Cab(All), 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 Chassis Cab(All) 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.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Software Update
We will alert you as to whether your Chassis Cab(All) 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 Chassis Cab(All) can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local MAN 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.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Bumper Cuts
Chassis Cab(All) models made vehicles made after 2017 will not require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted.
Does my vehicle need a bumper cut?
Some towbar styles might require a bumper cut in order to be fitted to your vehicle. But, this is improving and newer vehicles are less likely to require a bumper cut due to better towbar designs.
MAN TGE Chassis Cab(All) Towing Capacity
Chassis Cab(All) models made vehicles made after 2017 have a towing capacity of 3000 kg to 3500 kg.
Be sure to check the EXACT towing capacity of your vehicle before towing on your VIN plate.
What is towing capacity?
Towing capacity is the weight that your Chassis Cab(All) 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 Chassis Cab(All) may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
