Devo, granted you haven't towed much with it yet, but how are you liking the V6 when towing? I'm curious how it is at sea level. It's pretty good at 8100ft.

Towing

I liked it very much.I could not even tell i had something behind me at all until i would hit some really large dips or bumps in the road.When i looked at the instrument cluster to see the mileage i was getting it was about 13 mpg doing about 75 mph.It turned out better than i had expected.Also being that i dont have the air suspension the hitch leveled the Touareg out like it was nothing.Hit the bumps did not change the suspension stiffness either.I like pulling with the V6.It is not as bad as some people have said.It is still a strong enough vehicle.I am very pleased with what i got and i plan on getting another Touareg here soon.(When the V6 TDI comes out that is.)

I know the dealer didn't tell you, but the ST trailer tires you have on your trailer are only speed rated at 65 MPH. Any faster, and you run the risk of a tire coming apart, and possibly damaging your brand new baby.
BTW, the trailer looks great, any interior pics yet?

If you are dead-set on going 75, LT tires are rated for 75MPH. Just make sure they are up to the load. (LT225/75R15 D) You do have ST225/75R15's on it now? There are two sizes for Bambi's, one is a 14".

dealer

The dealer told me i could do 70 mph on the highway but if i should slow down to not have problems then i will do that.I just want to move with the traffic if possible.

Devo, I wouldn't worry about moving with traffic. Speed is not a good combination with trailer towing, especially when there is traffic on the road. So far, 65 is my top speed, with a rare burst of speed to pass someone.
