The Witter VW9C is a good option - needs a small notch cutting out of the rear bumper, but fits in place of the rear bumper irons and provides replacement mounting holes for the bumper. I fitted one a few years ago - fairly easy DIY job. I'd recommend fitting a towing relay with its own live supply, so as to get good voltage at the trailer lights.

I made a breakout adapter that fits in the black box to give me the switching signals for the relay: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=143591&hilit=towbar&start=15#p8081588

Tow Bar

Postby clift_d » 16 Sep 2018, 19:29

I've got a Westfalia 2WD swan-neck towbar available which I'll be selling together with matching bumper that has the correct cutouts.

The bumper is sound but looks a bit scruffy and so needs cleaning up and a bit of a tlc but the towbar is in good condition and still has its certification plate. It's a solid piece of kit designed by one of the best towbar manufacturers specifically for the T25 and has a 100kg nose weight rating.

You'll also need to sort out electrics as it comes without these.

I'm thinking £160 for towbar and bumper collected from north east London.

I'll get some pictures taken if you're interested.
