    I'm just dropping this here for now.

    It is simple mod of official tow hitch so it is useful in a semi.

    There is T75 frame just because I needed to add Tow hitch slot to frame.

    So you need to select T75_frame_fufsgfen from part selector, then select tow hitch from appropriate slot.

    Only T75 frame there, but you can put cement mixer upfit with the tow hitch and then can use chain or trailer of your choice, Krampe from farming pack mod of @MRcrash for example and it can tow pretty much anything you want.

    Mod might be useful if want to learn how to add tow hitch to a vehicle.

    Thanks!

    It could be improved of course as bit lower and further behind would improve camper towing, however what I have seen these IRL have been quite high positioned and not even this far back.

    Anyway it should help to see how tow hitch can be added to any vehicle, so someone with more time can build tow hitches to other vehicles, where they don't belong :p

    I had little fun with 6x6 cement mixer towing Belaz, it is barely possible with some good amount of power and automatic transmission.

    Only imagination is limit with a chain mod, because cement mixer is so heavy, with decent power you can do massive destruction by towing heavy objects, or just pull that Miramar trough narrow gap of two trees etc.

    Currently I have no time, but if nobody else adds it, then I might do it later. That later might be near or at winter though, so it is likely someone can make it before me (and probably better).

    It is rather easy to do based on this T-series towhitch, at least I think, I have not had time to look Wentward that much, but I guess it is kinda similar to add towhitch to it, just move and modify 3d model, make few beams and nodes.

    Today I have been doing that, but I still need to figure out how to add slot for bumper and bumper, I seem to be able to create infinite loop if I add bumper slot to tow hitch which is in bumper slot :p
    upload_2018-7-3_21-44-29.png

    Try with attached file, install as normal mod, putting zip into mods folder.

    Tow hitch can be found from rear bumper slot, then when you have selected tow hitch, there is new slot under tow hitch where you can select rear bumper. I need to refine that more tomorrow when I'm not so tired, but it should work for now.

    Thank you! Can you make tow hitch comparable to this mod like articulated bus and bi-articulated bus with tow hitch? https://www.beamng.com/resources/articulated-frame-component-for-bus.3526/ it will be so much fun if you add tow hitch to articulated bus and bi-articulated bus! :-D

    It seems your edit did not raise alert.

    Anyway, I might wait until he updates mod to have them as different vehicles, that would save bit of work and also BeamNG update comes tomorrow, so might need to do fixes for hitches after that too, you never know with Beam.

    I try to find time for this, but not so easy right now as there is so many other things I need to get progression done.
