Towing with an '08 Touareg?

Hi there,

I was planning to tow my 2004 CCD Bambi (19') with a 2008 Touareg, that's a V6.

According to Edmunds, the maximum towing capacity is 7716, but it also says that's "when adequately equipped, which may require engine and/or other drivetrain upgrades":

Has anyone towed with a V6 Touareg? Will it haul the Bambi?

Thanks in advance!

We tow our AS FC 20' with our 2011 V6 Touareg Sport and use Equalizer hitch. Thus far we've travel 16,000 miles in past two years. Steepest elevations towed up to 10,000 feet. Currently heading to this trip we are likely to exceed previous elevations. We love our setup and hopefully will not have issues with higher elevations.

Good luck!

Thank you! Closing out this thread... I put a hitch on my Touareg and have had no issues pulling with it. I do have to use a sway bar... compared to when I travel with the hubs' Tahoe (which was a tow package). However, it's been a great setup for me, and surprised others that the VW can tow it

Thanks again!
