New 2019 Treg Tow Ball weight

I am wanting to upgrade to the new Treg but I am concerned about the tow ball weight numbers. So I have a 5, 9 and 11 y/o kids and we have a Jayco swan (but I want to upgrade in the future) that we pull around but the tow ball weight is only 130kg with 5 ocupants? That might/probably be 5 adults? Is there anything I should be concerned about? Can I increase this anyway? Total Newby sorry...
Cheers Adam

Welcome Adam.


I went and had a look at the new Touareg Launch Edition tonight. Nice bit of kit.


As for tow ball weight, I would expect the new model to have a capacity between 310 and 350kg (probably closer to 320kg, but the dealership are the ones you should confirm with).


Not sure how you come to 130kg - is that the ball weight of your van (I suspect so)?


Fact: The Touareg will not know the Jayco Swan is hooked up, such is the performance of the car.
