With all the discussion of proper tow vehicle, tongue weights and the inevitable how to back up a trailer questions I have found a great educational video from Volkswagon promoting their new "Trailer Assist" option!

Click on the video link below to learn proper trailering technique!

When backing up the trailer...the direction of the bottom of the steering wheel is the direction you want the trailer to go.

Here is another neat video of a light trailer.

Anyone know the manufacturer of this trailer AND if there were any other manufacturers of similar trailers?

No practice needed.

Just click on the first video in my original post and see why Volkswagon's trailer assist is such a great option to include on your next VW!
