Towing with a VW Tiguan?

We are interested in knowing if anyone on the Forum is towing with a 4Motion Tiguan. We currently tow our Rockwood Freedom 1940 Popup (1500 lbs dry weight) with the Tiguan. We barely feel it on the back.

More specifically we are interested in knowing if anyone is towing a TT with a Tiguan. Tiguan's are rated for 2200lbs but it feels like it would easily tow more. We are thinking of upgrading our trailer next year and don't want to trade off the Tig.

If they are rated for 2200, I would not suggest towing more. It's not just about what the vehicle is capable of pulling from a power plant perspective, but also about control and stability.
