MT054 Tow Bar

Motorhomes are becoming more and more customised – and this includes both the layout and configurations. The result: Retrofit products, such as towing hitches, must then be produced as a small series or even a special solution, which is difficult and expensive. We have drawn on nearly 20 years of experience to develop a construction kit system that also consistently offers the optimal solution for special situations.

The new type MT054 system includes four basic components – ball head, clamping ring, cross member and side plate – which are bolted on to the chassis or chassis extension as one assembly. This offers the highest flexibility. Tow balls can be mounted either as a removable variant, with a fixed ball rod or as a four-hole flange coupling, ensuring optimal use of the installation space under the structure for every motorhome. The cross member is available in all lengths for AL-KO chassis and SAWIKO chassis extensions. And the side plates are also available for all common variants of the existing AL-KO cross member for the AL-KO chassis. In addition, additional installation positions are also possible due to the construction kit system.  

What's more, this system is also available as a heavy load variant (type MT055).

The advantages of both construction kit systems:

  • Greater ground clearance possible
  • Easier installation for "fitted" vehicles
  • Less reworking for the rear apron


The D-value is an indication of the strength of a towbar. It can be calculated using the following formula:


D = G(K) x G(A) x 9.81
     G(K) + (A)


Where G(K) is the gross weight of the towing vehicle in tonnes and G(A) is the gross weight of the trailer, also in tonnes. For example, a Fiat Ducato with 3.5t gross weight and towing capacity of 2t requires a towbar with a minimum D value of:


D = 3.5 x 2.0 x 9.81 = 12.50 kN
    3.5 + 2.0


The actual permissible trailer load is based on the value stated in section 28 or 01 of the vehicle registration documents. Of all the given values it is always the lowest value that should be adhered to.


The X dimension specifies the overhang of the mobile home body over the series chassis. When ordering, please specify the dimensions entered on the drawing if your vehicle should not be listed in our database. (contact us in case of doubt) If a tank, storage compartment or similar is installed in your vehicle in the area labelled with “Z”, please request a special dimension sheet by telephone.
