Whats Is an Internet Troll:

"An internet 'troll' is an abusive or obnoxious user who uses shock value to promote arguments and disharmony in online communities. Named after the wicked troll creatures of children's tales, an internet troll is someone who stirs up drama and abuses their online anonymity by purposely sowing hatred, bigotry, racism, mysogyny, or just simple bickering between others. Trolls like a big audience, so they frequent blog sites, news sites, discussion forums, and game chat. Trolls thrive in any environment where they are allowed to make public comments."

Jason, wow, thnxs for posting. I have always been a fan of good handling smallish cars and the diesel VW Golf seems to work great with trailer in tow.

Last year well known naturalist David Suzuki traveled across Canada in a VW Golf TDI/trailer combo. There was a one hour special about the trip on the tube. No question about it. The Golf's perform. The 30+ MPG when towing is nothing to laugh at either.

Who "he" ?

Never mind- the answer's the same regardless, but you'll have to watch "Back to the Future" to find out what it is...

With the right setup by the right outfit, Tim, the TDI can tow the same unit as the Touareg in my threadstarter, here reproduced in case you missed it...

Not all trolling is done off the back of a boat.

That is amazing considering that rating is based on towing a trailer without a WDH.

I believe some modern mini vans have a 2,000lb tow limit when used without a WDH.

I think a TDI Golf hatchback may be in the future for me.

Who is "He"

"He" was the owner of the VW/Airstream mentioned. He got raked over the coals for his towing experience by many in the the TDI group that the original link came from. Seems that they think the same way some do here about more obscure concepts like manufacturers specifications and limits.

Not responding to bad information and/or bad ideas is the same as giving tact approval.....Troll or No...
