I would be interested too. My mate has just bought a Rchav 4 with an unidentified towbar fitted. It just has the two vertical flanges similar to your picture visible. He needs a ball to fit on it.

The Bosal swan neck that had been on my Omega was like that. I only used the towbar occasionally then, so used to unbolt mine leaving the two flanges that you describe.
Probably easier in both instances to remove what's already there, weigh it in, & put the money towards another/new towbar.  :-\ :-\

I have a towsure one. It is a round fitting but the outer section is square, I wonder if they changed them during the production.

On a side note I hate removeable ones,especially if raining orwet on ground  >:(
