Default Tow bar and electrics??

Info please - we plan to ship our Mitsubishi Barbarian (Triton) to Oz when we move - can anyone advise if the UK ball hitch and electrics are the same, or will we need to get these changed once there?
Thanks

It's been a long time since I had a tow bar and electrics in the uk but I'm fairly sure the last one I had had a round pin connector efforty.. my tow bar here has a flat pin connector thingymajig. I think.

Round/flat pin as in the connector was round/flat, not the pins.

Of course, I could be completely wrong.

Hope this helps.

it is the same all you will need in oz is a adaptor to use from a round plug to a flat plug you can buy these very easy from repco etc in oz, so you can use any trailer that either uses round or flat plug
