    Detachable Tow Bar Storage....

    Whilst waiting for delivery of my D5 on Monday, I have been wondering if, and where, there is dedicated storage for a detachable tow bar. I've had a Tow Trust bar fitted (arranged via the dealership) which saved a big wedge of cash over the LR kit!

    Is there dedicated storage as in the D4 and the Disco Sport?

    Yes, the LR detachable tow bar comes with storage under the floor in the boot.

    I am wondering if you also have a full size spare under the car?

    Looking at it, it doesn't appear to be a 'full size' spare but at least its not an inflation kit!!

    Looks like a full size to me, don't think the security plate is fitted to car when you have a space saver at build. Assuming the car is on its original build wheels, the full size spare should be exactly the same design and size as the other 4 road wheels.

    I was hoping to see where the tow bar slots into..any chance of that photo please?
    I wasn’t sure it could be fitted in 7 seat with spare wheel underneath.
    Good news if one can Very Happy
