    I recently bought a used 2016 Touareg and I love it. I need to pull a small cargo trailer about a total of 2900lbs loaded. The hitch ball set up that the factory calls for is 4 1/2” to low to level my trailer. I don’t want to hurt my suspension. Is it ok to use a different configuration- a 2”...

    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 ended up getting the Freedom Express 282BHDS, which has a GVWR of 7700lbs, and dry weight of 5800lbs. The tongue weight is roughly 730lbs, but I have a weight distribution/balancing system on the hitch, which seems to help a lot. This trailer is 28 feet long (the actual trailer), and 3 feet...

    I hooked up my little utility trailer today for the first time in a while, and no lights were working (not a one, no brakes, tail or markers). What is unusual is I am getting dashboard warnings that there are a few trailer light failures (but not for "all" the trailer lights). In addition...

    Hi guys - I've got a 2008 V6 and found my inline 4 pin connector in the rear passenger side compartment where my 6 disc CD changer is. Every other tow vehicle I've owned already has the connector under the bumper already. I'm trying to find out how to route my 4 pin connector from the inside...

    I can't help myself, I have to do things my own way. So, in this case, I installed the Curt trailer hitch on my '04 Touareg (instead of the crazy-expensive VW one). And then I installed the Tekonsha Prodigy IQ myself, tapping into the Treg's brake switch in the driver's footwell and availing...
