Q5 will struggle especially with the 2.0T engine. The Touareg or Q7 TDI are the way to go. both will handle most mastercrafts well.

If you get the Q7 or the Porsche get the Air ride.

2001 F-350 Dually, Crew Cab 7.3 Powerstroke, 4x4,Automatic (wife drives it as well and we taught our teenaged daughter to drive in it ). We ordered it back in 2000, we've put over 215,000 miles on it pulling horses, boats, tractors, you name it we've hauled it. And it's still going strong. The only major problem I've had with it is keeping the front end aligned, that's one big PITA.

Heck, for that kind of jack I'll go get a King Ranch and have normal repair bills instead of astronomical repair bills.

Hey Team Talk Community, after being a passive reader for a while now I've decided to become a "active" reader and contribute to this awesome forum. It's great to find a forum with so much valuable info....and where MC enthusiasts can exchange experiences and ideas without trolls spoiling it for everyone.
Attached is a photo of my '96 Prostar 205 being pulled by my '85 F150
