TOW HITCH (Australia and New Zealand only)


Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before towing a trailer. See TOWING SAFETY.

The fitting of a tow hitch is required for towing with the tow hitch receiver.

The following tow hitch dimensions must be adhered to:

  1. The maximum recommended length is 175 mm.

  2. The maximum recommended ball height is:

    Coil suspension: -15 mm.

    Air suspension: 35 mm.


Never leave the tow hitch loose in the vehicle. In the event of an accident, or during heavy braking, the tow hitch can become a projectile potentially causing serious injury or death.

If in any doubt about the fitment of a tow hitch, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
