Why is the Holden Colorado Ute & Colorado 7 popular for Towing?

Posted by Taurus Towing Team on

The Holden Colorado Ute and its counterpart, the Colorado 7 are one of the most popular towing vehicles in Australia. Boasting great value for money 4WD with a towing capacity of up with 3500kg [3.5 tonnes]

In our time over the years at various different 4WD, Caravan & Camping Shows - the Taurus Towing team were often engaged in conversations with Holden Colorado owners. From discussing the comfort of the vehicle on long journeys across the Australian outback, to the vehicles steering ability when under tow load, the team at Taurus have heard generally good feedback on the popular Colorado.
Many older generation owners acknowledge the difficulty in visibility when towing a caravan with just the standard factory Holden mirrors - and how it requires the essential investment to install extendable towing mirrors as offered by Taurus Towing or Clearview. 

The Taurus Team have had significant experience with towing mirrors on the Colorado 7 including some challenges with the wiring harness solution for control of the mirror. Today we offer 2 different harnesses with every set of mirrors and you simply clip in the correct version. 
We have also installed many pairs of the mirrors and our technicians have compiled detailed step by step fitting instructions with photographs to assist DIY installation.


So if you have the Holden Colorado get in touch with Taurus Towing who can assist with extendable towing mirrors to improve the safety and visibility of your towing experience.
