Hi all,

New to VDubs, bought myself a new MkV (which I love). I'm retiring my turbo-charged Civic this year to the garage and am looking to compete in GLSKUSA next season.

I want to get a hitch installed on my GTI and have it hidden behind a removable plate on the rear valance. I got the body kit, so it is too low to bring the hitch out below it.

My question is, what is my tow capacity going to be? I figure a Class 1 setup should be fine, and get a single axel, open and ramped utilitiy trailer with a 2000GVW rating. The kart and spare equipment should be well below that limit. About 200~250Lbs for the kart, maybe another 400~500lbs in spare equipment and tools.

Anyone else use thier 6spd MkV to tow stuff? Pictures would be greatly appreciated of the tow setup.

Best regards,
