Hi

Can you use a Winterhoff Stabiliser hitch on an Al-Ko chassis caravan, as this save having the extended towball.

The short answer is yes.

15 to 20 quid for a new towball, or 300 odd for a new hitch, why would you.

That is only if you buy new from dealer.

However, the cost could be MUCH LESS from a breaker.

It is a used caravan, it should have a used hitch.

I have a winterhoff hitch and found that the reversing sensors picked up the alko ball, no problems when I fitted a standard ball.

 

The other plus of being able to use a standard towball is that it's compatible with tow trucks.

I will be brutally honest, the last thing I would want attaching together the two most expensive things I own apart from the house, is something I got from a scrapyard.
