Touareg TDI

Hi I'm new hear and to towing. Looking to see if anyone has any experience with the VW Touareg TDI. I've not bought, but am leaning toward a 27'FB Int'l. Will the Touareg do me good. All the sales people say yes, but they aren't pulling it. And reading through the forums, it seems maybe I should get a smaller trailer, because I don't want an F-250, and I don't want to be under-powered. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance,

Here's a fellow who's been full timing in a 23 with a Toureg. He just bumped up to a TDI.

There is a lot of content on this forum about towing with a Touareg. In a nutshell, those who do tend to like it very much.

Use the search function to get to the information you need.

Up to 23, no worries, 25 max I would go or maybe even 27 (did own 25FB with diesel Touareg & ProPride hitch) - issue is max payload of the Touareg which is comparable to the F-150 & 1500 trucks.

Just asked the VW guy in the shop and he said if it is the V10tdi it will pull great BUT maintance side is a nightmare. We work on VWs here so that is what we see on the maintance side.
