I currently drive a 2008 V6 TDI and haul a 23 feet/3 ton caravan using a Reese WDH. The Touareg tows it with ease and the rig is in perfect balance. I am considering moving into a newer model but have been informed that the 7P model introduced in 2011 has had the chassis removed to save weight - the construction now being 'unitary'. Furthermore, the standard OEM self-levelling air suspension does not allow the use of a weight distribution hitch. This would seem to defy logic to me since no matter how good the air suspension was, it could not transfer some towball mass to the front wheels. I really want another Touareg but not at the cost of inability to have the rig in balance. Can anyone confirm the details I have provided above?
