. I will clean it up and load up what I need... ( I travel pretty light) and get it scaled to see exactly where I am. My problem is that my drive train warranty will be void if I pull something too heavy... so am looking for some ideas or suggestions - do I go ahead and put a trailer hitch on my vw? or should I buy something else to tow this with like a dodge caravan? - rated 3500 lbs? Thoughts please! Thanks Wendy
Hi Wendy. The TDI's have a great reputation here and all over the world when used as TV's. There are a number of them that we know about that are pro set ups and towing trailers much larger than yours. What that means is that your vehicle towing at the max rating is well within it's capabilities with margin to spare.
Good to hear your trailer has brakes
so you need to get a quality brake controller and get a good connection system. If appropriate to your hardware specs a WDH will mellow out the ride and add an additional safety margin.
You have the potential for a great handling/performing rig if set up optimally.
