Towbar Types

The Standard Towbar, often rated up to 1600kg, is well engineered solution for light towing. The Standard Tow bar has been designed for easy installation and the utmost reliability. Unlike the removable TBM found on other models of Hayman Reese tow bars, the Standard Towbars have a tongue attached by two bolts.

The Hayman Reese RL styled towbar has a removable TBM like the Hitch Receiver Tow bar, however the RL has a 40mm by 40mm hitch box and therefore is designed for lighter duty applications. The 40mm Hitch Receiver Towbar also has a removalble Trailer Ball Mount (TBM).

Hayman Reese's famous Hitch Receiver Towbar has a 50mm by 50mm hitch box and is the heavy duty towing option. The Hitch Receivers Tow bars are often rated to the vehicles maximum towing capacity and are a must if towing caravans, large trailers, boats or horse size floats. The Hitch Receiver Towbar also has a removable Trailer Ball Mount (TBM).

Did You Know?

Towing without a Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Systems can cause unnerving trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness, less traction and misaligned head lamps. Overtime you may also notice a reduction in fuel economy and in increased tyre wear.


When using a Weight Distribution System, the ball weight remains the same, however the load is evenly distributed through the vehicle's chassis to all four wheels. It is important that the capacity of the Weight Distribution System is correctly chosen and that the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations are always followed.


Classic and Standard systems

Hayman Reese 600lb & 800lb Weight Distribution Systems come in a Classic and Standard style.

The Classic can be described as the Hayman Reese signature kit. The system is comprised of our proven traditional welded head, trunnion style high performance bars with integrated cams, and with light weight extra durable cast steel shanks.

The Standard kit is comprised of round, hook style high performance spring bars with integrated cams. Round spring bars allow for more clearance for trailers with 6” chassis. The system shares the same shank as the Classic kit and also has a light weight cast steel head.
