    Hi fellow gasser..
    Just wondering if you ever had a rooftop carrier while you were towing your earlier TT, "the brick".
    I have been tempted to play with an air dam of sorts to see if my brick will let me at least coast down a missouri hill..

    My second journey has me staying in 6th or 7th to stay above 60 mph and I suspect it is the size and shape not the weight that is hurting me.

    Thanks

    Hi Spiegel,

    I'm in Portland, looks like you're in Oregon too.

    I'm outfitting my '13 TDI Treg for towing my new used Outdoors RV trailer (23BHS model) that weighs 7,000 lbs and i can load balance it for whatever tongue weight makes sense for the Treg (custom OR frames per model are nice!).

    I guess I'd better get some mirror extensions.

    I'm getting a Blue Ox Swaypro hitch for it.

    -- The main question is wiring for a brake controller - looking at a Tokansha P3, but there's no plug and play kit for wiring it for Treg. What did you do for wiring? I do have the OEM wiring harness and I think there might be a plug up under the dash somewhere?

    -- My main worry is the Treg trani holding up to the strain going over the coast range. Not concerned about the strong TDI motor. What's your experience?

    Cheers,
    Leigh Anderson
