    Those are my thoughts as well. I feel like at 5 ft wide trailer is fine for me and probably a little bit easier to maneuver. However I called my local trailer dealer and the 5x10 that they had is now sold so if I want one now it's the 6x10. I could also wait, I don't have an immediate need but...

    Still making final decisions on trailer. 5x8, 5x10 or 6x10? Leaning towards 6x10, figure bigger ia better but would appreciate any thoughts from this group. And for basically the same price I can get a 5x10 with bifold ramp or a 6x10 with normal/tall ramp. I think I'd rather the bifold but...

    @DrGERTol played with the VCDS a bit today and cleared up a bunch of codes. I have one left, probably related to my cruise control issues. No other issues with my steering wheel of MFSW buttons, everything else works as expected. Monday,05,September,2022,14:48:12:39469 VCDS -- Windows...

    multiple codes after backup camera and trailer lights installed - MIL and Flashing glow plug - Need help!!

    @DrGERTol I think I figured out what is going on, at least part of it. I got back home this afternoon and pulled the battery out, battery tray and air filter box so I could get a better look at what's going on. I also jacked the front end back up again and pulled the bottom plastic tray from...

    Thanks for sharing that. Very useful. I originally had it on the 7th from the right, with the larger gauge wire on it. See pic here. I think I said second from the left earlier but actually meant second from the right. You used that open spot all the way on the right fpr your battery tender...

    multiple codes after backup camera and trailer lights installed - MIL and Flashing glow plug - Need help!!

    I originally had the trailer lights power going to the post next to your ctek connection (fuse panel A) I do have that extra one available with nothing on it but didn't have a bolt on it so I put it on the one next to it (second from left in the last picture you show) but because of the loss of...

    multiple codes after backup camera and trailer lights installed - MIL and Flashing glow plug - Need help!!

    I had to call it quits this morning but I guess I should just disconnect the power for the fuse and the trailer lights and roll back ant vcds settings and go from there. Any other immediate thoughts? Troubleshooting that 000175 codes seems pretty extensive and I don't have all the tools to do...

    Hey everyone, so for the last few days I was working on the car to install a 4 pin trailer light connections and a new Aux backup camera to pair with my RDC 330 head unit that Ive had for a while. Everything went well and I drove the car about 50 miles round trip with back roads and higway, no...

    I started wiring up my trailer light kit yesterday and should have it wrapped up today or tomorrow. I plan on going with this aluminum trailer. What trailer hitch do folks usually go with? Any kind of rise? I am on the VW towing springs so i'm up about 2" over stock, should I use a straight...

    I ordered that e trailer harness. They just emailed me ~10 days later to say some parts are OOS and won't be in until January 2023. Any other suggestions on a wiring kit or vendors?

    A Tractor supply or har or freight steel trailer with nothing included starts at $900-$1000. Then you have to add decking, sides etc. Prob close to $1500 when all said and done. 2x as much for an aluminum version with aluminum decking, ramps, sides etc seems fair.

    Should hold resale value pretty well and I'd rather buy once cry once vs a steel trailer that's gonna rust and be trash in 5 years
