My manual for the 2008 City Golf says...

max. 1321 lbs without trailer brakes
max. 3100 with trailer brakes

We plan to install brakes so I wouldn't consider this marginal - towing a 13' Boler.

update

The trailer we made an offer on, 1977 13' Boler, does have a square flange on the axle with four bolt holes ...so...

Do we need a new hub in order to install brakes?

or

Will the brake drum fit onto the existing hub?

I'm trying to get a sense of the cost involved...

Pictures are appreciated. Thanks.

Melanie

Melanie:

If you have the flange there then all you need to buy is the actualy brake components, a guess on cost, would be in the range of $100 per side, plus wiring and brake controller.....

It is a lot less than if the flanges are not there......

A quick search on princess auto and you'll find trailer brakes
