I am in the process of simultaneously buying a 1975 Volkswagen Westfalia Camper and buying a trailer/hitch so that I can tow it across the country when I move from OR to NJ in just three days. Time is of the essence.
I’ll be towing the VW behind my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan, 3.8L AWD. I already have an appointment for tomorrow to buy and install a standard 2 in. receiver hitch on the Grand Caravan.
I need to know:
- Approximately how much the 1975 VW Westfalia weighs.
- Approximately how long it is (don’t actually own the VW yet, so can’t go outside and measure it).
Also, I’d like to know whether you suggest I get a flatbed trailer or one of those two-wheel trailer pull doodads…
Many thanks for your quick replies.
