That's an European trailer and basically from another world. Golf has a 165 lb. hitch weight. Bet Andy can fix that!

But hey, let's argue about it....

Not much to argue about -- by the time I retire in 10 years and we drop down to one vehicle b/c gas is running upwards of $5 per gallon, that there is the type of rig I want. Coming to a community near you soon...

There was a member here who towed a Bambi with a Golf; guess who set that up?

Sadly the combination no longer travels the roads because the Bambi turned out to be a lemon and was disposed of
