it IS confusing, and especially when the advice comes from folks who don't have a g wagen or have driven/seen one.
wayne/sam, dennis and rem are giving you the right (hard) picture.
it's even funnier when the advice is from folks who don't own either a tv or trailer.
the issue isn't that it can be made to work. sure it can, but what's involved and how much will it cost and will it be safe.
those are the issues.
again have you been by the weatherford shop? you will get good/safe advice there.
if they haven't done a g wagen (these were gray market imports toping 100k$ each) they will be honest about it and still work through the problem.
contacting the canadian shop is silly. welding a receiver onto the bottom doesn't allow you to greatly exceed the carry/tow capacity.
no dog, no beer, no brisket=no fun.
there IS a reason this shop is in canada folks, so get a grip.
are you gonna drive the g-wagon to eastern canada for set up? i can't imagine driving an 02 g 3-4,000 miles round trip on interstates.
has it even been out of texas in the last 4 years (after the sw purchase)?
are you gonna never go over 60 mph in texas?
the problem is your initial post suggest a NEW 27 footer or BIGGER and "with all the equipment"
no doubt a smaller trailer or lighter older unit might work out, but GO TO the weatherford shop in person.
lastly, take a reality break and redefine what size a/s you want and where it's gonna b used.
then decide how much liability you wanna assume for the look of using the old g....
