My thought would be to stick it in the relevant section.....

;) 

but seems as you’re from Leeds, then everything is complicated for you lot! :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

only joking (not really ;) ) I’d tackle it myself but I can quite easily “install” something like this, so it depends on how confident you are really....

 

will the rear  bumper not require cutting etc.?

You want a Westfalia detachable towbar and Westfalia electrics.  Towbar will cost £250-£300 and electrics £200.  Would cost another few hundred pounds to fit.

 

But it is an easy diy fit.  No need to cut the bumper, instead cut part 6 in this link.

No need to code the Westfalia electrics to make them work either.

 

If you post in the F11 technical section you will get a few guys to help who have retro fitted a towbar to their F11.  I have fitted one to my dads F10, but its the same towbar and electrics.

 

Westfalia is the OEM towbar so you can't go wrong.

It is..........apart from dodgy air con condensers, rear air springs, egr valves, rust and the yellow grommet water leak source.
