Gregory, sorry for the late reply. The Touareg and the Bambi and a fantastic setup. Charging hills, passing power and towing comfort are all there. You can manually shift the auto transmission (VW calls this tiptronic) to better hold hills, and the brakes are a best in class 330mm Brembro six piston systemon the V8 and a 350mm on the V10 TDI diesel. A brake controller can easily be added to the Touareg, at least as long as it is a pre-2007 model. The Touareg will need a set of add on towing mirrors.
Is the Touareg you are looking at (or have purchased?) have air suspension? Make sure that you get some kind a sway control system for the hitch. Weight distribution (WD) is not needed with the air suspension since the vehicle will self level. WD will also fight with the air suspension system, since they are both trying to do the same thing. Also make sure the Touareg is a late VIN model of at least 55,000 or higher due to early model bugs. Better yet, see if you can find a lease return 2006, you will a bug free (is there such a thing in a german vehicle???) vehicle and a backup camera if you get the NAV system package.
