Hayman Reese Towbar
Since its inception in 1951, Hayman Reese has been the Australian leader in aftermarket towing. Hayman Reese designs, manufactures, tests and distributes vehicle towing systems including towbars, weight distributing hitches, sway controllers, and a wide range of accessories.
Hardings Swift Caravan Services have been a Hayman Reese distributor for over 40 years. Hayman Reese towbars generally compete well on price with genuine towbars, and Hayman Reese’s wiring looms and tow modules integrate seamlessly with your vehicles electrical system. The Hitch Receiver towbars are usually rated to the vehicles maximum towing capacity and are a must if towing caravans, large trailers, boats or horse floats. Hayman Reese heavy duty hitch receiver towbars are compatible with all Hayman Reese accessories such as Hayman Reese weight distribution systems.
Towing without a Weight Distribution System can cause unnerving trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness, less traction and misaligned head lights. Over time you may also notice a reduction in fuel economy and 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.
Hardings Swift have been fitting Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Systems for many years now, come in and talk to us to see if a Weight Distribution System is suitable for your rig. We can also ‘reset’ your existing Weight Distribution System if you have updated your tow vehicle or caravan. See our Level rides page for more information.
The vast majority of caravans nowadays have electric brakes which means you will need an electric brake controller in your vehicle. Hardings Swift have been fitting brake controllers for many years, and can tackle any vehicle including the many popular European brands now used for towing. We are still big fans of the Prodigy brake controller, and we now have the RedArc Tow-Pro. See our Brake controller page for more information.
Whether it’s an Ignition ‘hotwire’ for your three way fridge, an AL-KO ESC power circuit, or a caravan battery charge circuit, Hardings Swift can wire your vehicle up to suit any caravan. See our Auxiliary wire page for more information.
Reverse Camera Systems
We often fit Reverse Camera systems when installing the other electrical systems. A reverse camera on the back of your caravan can be left on while driving, unlike a camera on the back of your car, giving you a much clearer picture of what’s happening behind you. We recommend the Safety Dave cameras and monitors.
Hardings Swift are a distributor for Clearview Mirrors. We can supply and fit Clearview towing mirrors to a large number of popular tow vehicles. Give us a call to check price and availability for your vehicle.
