A Ferguson 3ton tipper with removable hay sides. Of course, I've had the optional pick-up hitch fitted which helps ...

Oh, hang on, you mean what do I tow with my Touareg. Erm, nothing, because I was too silly to order the detachable tow bar.

P.S. How did she drive up on to those tree stumps? That is clever. Dead handy that they were there, too. :whistle:
Who'd a thought it; drivin' this diesel and lovin' it ...

Why?); and, yes, a torch in the centre console ...

I used to tow a Fleetwood Heritage 630ES which is why we bought the first Treg but once we bought one I was smitten- hence the new Treg (Treg number 4).





We sold the caravan in March this year but still bought a new Treg in July as we are smitten - well we need a car with a big boot for the 2 dogs :whistle:


and every time we go out my good lady says cant we use the proper car?...(my other car is a Jag but apparently not as comfortable as the Treg)

Cas
I used to have a 2009 3.0 TDi 240PS Altitude in Reflex Silver paint, 20� Ayres Rock wheels, Bluetooth , 12-way Electric seats, Ext Conv Pack (inc memory), Parking Sensors, Fully Electric opening/closing tailgate & Detachable Tow-bar whilst also running a Jaguar S-Type R (one of the last batch made in 2007 with a Supercharged 4.2L V8 and 400bhp :-) )
Before that I had a 55 reg T1 3.0 Tdi

Now running a sensible 4 door saloon with modern stop-start etc. (to save the planet..) a 550hp Jaguar XFR-S….and an Arbarth 595 Turismo for nipping to the shops

Sorry, but if I'd been driving it would have been Voyager 1 - Cat 0!
Tip! Search this forum using Google or Bing with [site:www.mytreg.com word word word ]

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA and the facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 and the facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7

The world's most comprehensive guide to buying a used VW Touareg that could save you money [even more essential reading!] is here:

FYI: Porsche Cayenne 955 = T1, 957 = T2, 958.1 = T3 and 958.2 = T4
