Hi Dave, I was thinking along similar lines actually.
I picked up a secondhand Witter towbar for my W124 bodied E300d.
the twin plug electrics have wiring coming out the back, all colour coded.

Are the colour codes for towbar electrics generic, specific to the make of towbar, or random?
Mines quite a substantial piece of kit designed to pull caravans, though my intension is to use it only for a small box trailer (but may occasionally contain heavy items, like engines for example).
Other factors to consider.....relaying the electrics, should we consider extra autobox oil cooling??

Some help, diagrams, photos and maybe links would be of great help.

I know very little about towbars, so any help welcomed

I have a file on doing this but it is a very big file. If you have an unlimited size on your inbox it may go through, other than that by MSN

I will be able to print off something for you to help,,but again it could be a very large file.
I need the next 3 numbers after 124
