  1. Off-Roading & Towing
    I did a search and was not sure if this has been covered before and was not very sure what keywords to search for, so pardon me if this was covered already! The reason for the question: I have towed with my T1 V8 that has a simple piggyback trailer light system and was not impressed with...
  2. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    2016 7P V6 3.0 diesel 180kw 8sp, 73,000km I know this is a recurring theme, but thought I’d post our experience. After towing a 3.2T van for around 25,000km on a few trips our drivetrain developed a resonant groaning sound at about 1400rpm especially when loaded, that was very disturbing...
  3. General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello all, I was pulling my camper this weekend and it started too shake/rattle at about 65+ MPH the car. Further looking into it I believe it's the rear Ujoint, if I'm wrong please advise me too what it might be ( it doesn't do this unless pulling the camper as well ). Does anyone know where I...
  4. Off-Roading & Towing
    Hey guys, I just got a 2010 TDI Touareg! I'm trying to find an aftermarket hitch that's properly rated, but the only ones I keep coming across are the 6k Curt ones. For now I'm just planning haul bikes around so that's not a big deal, but down the road I want to actually be able to tow a trailer...
  5. Off-Roading & Towing
    Hi, We have recently purchased a 2020 TDI Touareg and I am wanting to know if anyone has had airbag suspension added to their vehicles for towing purposes. Has it helped with levelling the car whilst towing a dual-axel caravan? I have spoken to the dealer and they have suggested speaking to...

    We just got our first Treg, my Vw mech. checked the VIN and said it’s pre-wired for towing. I ordered the hitch, mount, ball, 7 pin connector. What is the best brake controller to install ? (My wife wants to start pulling big cargo trailers and is now looking at Air Streams. I may have...

    A summary of what you should expect from your Touareg when the correct towing module is installed. Happy to append to this if I have missed something! The genuine VW tow modules does the following: Disables side assist (blind spot warning - this uses part of the rear sensors) This function...

    Hi, new to the forum. Have just purchased a 2012 and need to put a towbar (for a horse float). I have seen a few older posts about the different types genuine vs HR and wiring issues etc. I have a redarc brake unit from my old car.

  10. Off-Roading & Towing
    I'm new to the forum and new to RVing. The Furrion back-up camera on my Grand Design Imagine 2150 only works intermittently (two seconds of a low signal strength image then ~30 secs. of no image) with the monitor in my 2016 TDI. Furrion says their products have this problem with many foreign...

    I designed and built a Hitch receiver that can be mounted through tow hooks. Receiver is 2". Look at the pictures to get an idea. I did not test it for towing, and using it will be at your own risk. However it might be suitable for Class I towing capacity. It will also work with any bike rack...
  14. Off-Roading & Towing
    Hey gang! We're brand new here. And, of course, have more than a few questions. We bought our '16 Touareg, V6 Exec, with the main purpose of pulling a travel trailer, given its large 7,716 lbs. of towing capability! We've just purchased a TT that is under the Touareg's max tow limit, but, is...

    I went to my RV dealer looking for a travel Trailor. I do have the Trailor wiring installed on my car. He informed me that I must add an electric brake control in my vehicle. He was sayng that if I have this additional electric brake control added to my car it would void the warranty. Does...

    My TDI did a great job with a J/80. Total trailer weight was around 5k, plus four pax in the car. The real story is about the drag of all the rigging, etc. Managed 15mpg r/t between LA and San Diego. Just set the cruise at 65 and watched the miles tick by. Also, totally unscientific: But...
