Towing vehicle

Plan to purchase a 20'-23' Airstream and will be towing with VW Touareg with V6 turbo diesel. Towing capacity on this vehicle is 7700 pounds, so I don't think weight is an issue. Are there other issues of which I should be aware? Thanks, Robert

VW advises against the use of a weight distribution hitch. While this is ultimately your decision, know that there are many Touareg drivers who have safely ignored that advice.

The Touareg Diesel is on my list of potential tow vehicles once my kids are old enough not to need the van anymore. I've heard many good things about them.

Tourareg

Andy....thanks for the information. I will certainly be looking into the hitch issue. The diesel is a dream to drive, so we are looking forward to getting an Airstream purchased and getting on the road. Again, many thanks, Robert
