5KTQ Used for Towing?
I'm currently a 5KSQ owner and have been looking at buying a 5KTQ Avant.
I would like to use this vehicle for occasional towing, and wanted some
input. My trailer is about 2700 pounds when fully loaded. I seem to
remember someone stating here that there were trailering limits in the
Bentley service manual, but I can't seem to find any reference to them.
Locally I get opinions ranging from "not recommended for towing" to "as
long as its a manual transmission and quattro, it will be fine". What is
the concensus from the list?
Also, what about hitches? Should I try to get a pre-built hitch made for
this vehicle, or should I just have a custom one fitted?
Should I walk away from this deal and buy an AWD Safari van?
