All I have is a heavy duty ball mount. No WD or sway equipment on the Touareg, either. The air suspension and electronics are amazing. The V10 TDI doesn't hurt.
But don't go by dry weight... it's a meaningless number because it does not include anything like propane tanks, battery, awning, television, pots, pans, water food, etc. etc.
Use the Gross weight rating. That's the most your trailer can weight, so that's a better measure.
