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.

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

Electric kits for Peugeot 5008 MPV

We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your MPV, 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 MPV 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.
