But look at his nose high Jeep, and it sure looks like it would be a tail wagging the dog situation...

Looks like he got there fine, catching some zzz's. Is it ideal? I'd imagine not. I looked, the TV has a 5,000lb towing capacity and I'd put that trailer at around that dry.

We don't know the details, but it looks as if he's getting it done.

This is mine, it is a 29ft surveyor 264SV being towed by a 2013 VW Touareg TDI with wheel base of 114 inches. Tows beautifully handles great and I don't need to stop for winds, just because it looks different does not mean it is wrong or does not conform.

DDC - interesting...I just looked at the Towing Guide and the Touraq is listed at 7,716 lbs. Never would have thought! How's the mpg towing?

We are in Indiana at the Tadpole rally and drove down from Ontario pushing against south westerly winds and averaging 16.4 mpg with the cruise set at 65 most of the way.

So DDC what is the hitch rated for?. when I looked at some in the dealers lot, waiting to get my EOS serviced, the hitch was rated for less than 10% tongue weight. Around 650 lbs I think.
