Thank you very much for your response. I have spoken with the VW dealership as well and they have assured me that the van can handle the load. They did state however that the trailer needs to have brakes - which it does. We tested for a short distance today and all worked fine.
Interesting you live near Heidelberg, as I used to work for Heidelberg USA and have visited Heidelberg in Germany, it is a beautiful city.
The boat is a 20 footer, and weighs approximately 2900lbs. With trailer we are thinking we will be below 3500lbs no problem.

Jeff, can you tell me what is the difference between the Weekender and the MV model? I might be interested in a Eurovan that has the features of the MV model, i.e., a convertible bed and a pop up roof. Can you email me photos?
#685 of 854 eurovan 92 cooling problems
May 12, 2007 (9:11 am)
I have a 92 Eurovan. The cooling light is on op. temp. is around 110 c. Neither Electric fans turn on.
Could this be a relay problem. Thermostat and sensor have been replaced.
#687 of 854 92 Eurovan fuel injection/starting problem
Jun 20, 2007 (10:11 am)
My 92 Eurovan gas with 440,000 kilometers began hard starting during a -27C(-16F) cold snap last winter. Initially the problem was that it would go too rich and flood. If I disconnected and removed the cold injector it would eventually go with much cranking and black smoke. Once it started it would run fine-good power, response and fuel economy and start normally as long as it was warm. Over a short period of time the problem worsened until it did not want to start at 0C/32F. It has been into several dealers with no success. Computer scans yield nothing,new plugs, distributor cap, both coolant temp sensors and fuel pressure regulator have been changed with no improvement, in addition the starter has been changed after wearing out grinding the van to life. Now in warm weather there is no fuel delivered to the cylinders at all. Fuel pressure checks out and I can hear the fuel pump cycle when the key is turned. Other than this problem the vehicle runs very well, less than 1 liter of oil consumption for 6000 km. oil change interval. I am suspecting a computer problem but would like to be able to trouble shoot before buying an expensive part that may not fix the problem. Any suggestions appreciated.

#690 of 854 need 5 speed
Jul 10, 2007 (7:22 pm)
I am putting a diesel motor in my eurovan. The problem is it came an automatic transmission and the diesel works best with a 5 speed so I need complete shift linkage from shift knob to the transmission. If you have one the best way to contact me is by email as I am posting this in far more sites than I will be able to keep up with.
