Because truck chassis and suspensions are so rigid, the Airglide Towbar eliminates the need for heavy "A-Frames" and hitches on towed vehicles.
The Airglide Towbar allows you to suspend your caravan, horse float or trailer on an automatically and dynamically adjusting cushion of air, providing you with a safer and smoother ride, while saving you valuable time and money.
Since the early seventies, inventor Wayne Young has been developing transport solutions for the demanding oil and gas exploration and transport industries. It was this experience combined with industry demand which in 2006 led him to the creating the Airglide Towbar.
"The Airglide Towbar significantly improves the life of even the lightest built caravans, horse floats and trailers," Mr Young said.
"Because truck chassis and suspensions are so rigid, the Airglide Towbar eliminates the need for heavy "A-Frames" and hitches on towed vehicles," he said.
The Airglide Towbar can be adapted to trucks with 16 inch to 22.5 inch wheels.
"It can also be refitted from one truck to another regardless of chassis width."
The current models have a load rating, ATM (aggregate trailer mass) (ATM), of 4500kg and Mr Young has also developed a 7000kg version.
All Airglide Towbars have been tried, proven and tested since 2006 and come with a parts and labour warranty (conditions apply).
"It's certified to meet the requirements of the Australian Design Rule 62-02 - mechanical connections between vehicles, and can provide better insurance and warranty possibilities."
Airglide Towbars are designed in kit form and come with a professional instructional booklet.
You can fit it yourself or Mr Young can fit it for you, at additional cost, at the Airglide Towbars factory at 15 Orford Court, Wilsonton, in Toowoomba.
Mr Young said if you live in Queensland and the vehicle has a GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) of 4.5t or more it will need to be inspected by an authorised officer and be fitted with the appropriate modification plate.
"In all other states or territories please contact the appropriate state transport authorities."
