Agreed. With that low-profile trailer and the small tow vehicle, that x15 looks like an x80 back there. Just not used to that here in the States....I guess as long as she stops, who cares.

It stops and rides great, believe me...

I'm just not used to see it spin on all fours on a wet slip

I thought the same when I first saw my boat behind the Passat... man that looks huge...

posted in in my Newbie advice thread, but it's probably better off here


the rig is my solution for now, its a 2005 Passat 2,5 TDI 4Motion which can tow up to 2200kg (4800lbs+). It will be replaced by an Amarok that's coming around June/July and will be able to tow 3200kg (7000lbs+).
By the way my rig probably boosts some of the best mileages around here ...around 20-25mpg towing

I'll trow in some more pics in the next couple of days, waiting for good weather...

that's around the same as we do with a mercedes e220 break 10-15l/100km or 16-23 mpg
