Owners of new European vehicles can now easily and cost effectively ensure their trailer sockets are compatible with Australian caravans, trailers and the like, following the introduction of Narva’s new 13-pin European trailer adaptors. Until recently, European car models were largely retrofitted with Australian-compatible sockets by the selling dealership or importer.
Increasingly though, many sellers are no longer doing this, providing owners with a source of frustration the first time they want to tow a trailer or caravan.
Available in two variants, ‘13-pin Euro round on car to 7-pin flat plug’ and ’13-pin Euro round on car to 7-pin large round plug’, the units are built tough using ABS material for longevity combined with nickel plated brass terminals which provide superior conductivity.
Fitment of the adaptor is fast and simple via an intelligent double connection system. Once inserted into the vehicle’s socket, a simple twist and lock function secures the connection. For added peace of mind, a flat disc receiver on the adaptor also accepts the vehicle’s socket dust cap, further securing the connection and ensuring it won’t work itself loose even over rough road conditions.
A further benefit of the adaptors is the intelligent internal wiring which utilises a diode that prevents any warning buzzers or alarms from sounding within the tow vehicle.
Available from leading automotive, transport and four wheel drive outlets nation-wide, Narva’s 13-pin European trailer adaptors are suitable for a wide range of European vehicles including but not limited to: Land Rover Discovery, Mercedes ML Series, VW’s Golf, Amarok and Caddy, the Audi Q Series and BMW X3, X5 and X6.
