Uhhh I was going to comment but maybe I shouldn't. Ahhh what the hell!
I'm already going to hell because of VW's...In particular my moms Jetta that thankfully is long gone. I have a whole list of new cuss words I developed while doing such mundane taskes as replacing a timming belt that lead to a water pump, just a Quick
Weekend Job, the whole weekend and included drilling out 3 allen head bolts out of the crank and removing every acessory on the engine so I could get the water pump housing off the side of the block to drill out the 6 of 10 6mm studs that broke. Your deity of choice ears are still burning.
Hay I have a spare fried Jetta Auto tranny ( #4 in 80k) laying in the garage awaiting the lawsuit to finish with a Mr. Transmission franchise in Knoxville TN. After we finish with that your welcome to have it for parts. It was sort of baffling to us how we were charged $400 to tear down this tranny that blew 250 miles from home to find out what it was going to take to fix it. Get a $1600 quote after we got another 400 miles up the road in a rental. Tell the guy to throw the tranny in the trunk, I'll come get the car.
The next day I come to Pick it up and last thing the guy says to me is "We assembled it so it wouldn't leak all over the place." I thought that was very thoughtful at the time course I had 4 hous sleep in the last 30 and had drove 1,240 miles in the last 24 and had another 250 to go in the next 3 towing the car home on a Dolly behind a 1975 GMC Jimmy I bought for a Dollar ( and it's been 100 times more reliable the the VW). I then went and loaded the complete transaxle by my loansome.
Next morning that popped in my head went outside in my house coat, pulled the dipstick and found there were so thoughtfull they even installed the dirtty AFT as well.
Uhhhhh My experiance with VW's (uhh let me make the list me and my family have owned. 68 Square back, 73 412 wagon, 82 vannagon, 83 GTI, 63 bus, 87 Jetta ohh and there was Porsche's as well, 56 Speedster, 65 356c Cabriolet (I came home in that one) and a 72 914, that they do not make good tow vehicles for any more then about 1,000lb especially if they are auto.
While 1900lb doesn't sound like a huge amount you also need to figure in things like wind drag and the fact that the car still won't out weight that camper by much if at all when it's packed and ready to go. There is also the issue of the unibody and getting a suitable hitch that can handle 300lb of tounge weight and 3,000+ pounds of camper.
Course I may have a more unatural hatred of the Jetta then most. I am forever damned because of one.
