Changes to ADR Tow Balls
ADR tested tow balls cannot be changed due to the high compliance cost. Any changes to the tow ball cause the tow ball to be retested.
It is wise to purchase your tow ball and then design your gooseneck setup.
The gooseneck coupling that suits this tow ball is the CM520.
The dealer arranges for the installation, considering the intended application and the customer’s preference.
Coupling installers need to consider the strength of the towbar or bed plate and the rating and certification of the coupling before installation. Towball collars are available to strengthen the bed plate. Click here.
