Our Story

Probar Trailer Components is 100% Australian Owned and Operated by the original owners.

It all started in January 1986 when Hans opened the doors to Caboolture Towbar and Trailer Centre. Fully qualified in the Automotive industry with a history in BMC mechanical, Golden Fleece/Caltex service stations, and Queensland manager for "U Haul" trailers. 

He soon was one of the first persons to obtain a Trailer Inspector Licence in Queensland, and be a registered trailer manufacturer with a commercial V.I.N. identification.

From there, he successfully built his business in everything from building and repairing trailers and horse floats; to towbar fitting and wiring, 4WD accessories, installing car audio systems, and parts supply. Hans quickly became the go-to guy in town.

Adding the name "Probar" in 1999, to provide consultation and trade only supply to the Towing and RV Industries. The business grew over time to the point where Hans decided to sell Caboolture Towbar and Trailer Centre as a stand alone workshop, and to restructure Probar as an Independant Parts Only business in 2004 due to a high demand for better prices and availability for Trailer, Towing and RV Parts.

In 2007 there was another shift for Probar and opened it's doors in a new, more accessible location with large showroom space and warehouse, to even better serve the public as well the trade customers. 

With over 35 years experience in the industry, Hans and the team at Probar pride themselves on great customer service, and up to date knowledge on the industry rules and regulations. You can be sure to get the right advice and the right price at Probar.
