Any recommendations for a tow bar to tow a normal height car trailer ,i have a doka on 15" wheels with AT tyres so im guessing it will need a drop plate?

If you have a proper Syncro towbar you should have no difficulties otherwise you may need a drop plate

I have Westie 2wd tow bars on both my syncros...the extra height has not been a concern and seems perfect for plant trailers and similar... the strength of the witter and similar brands does concern me a little however..
