Default 1995 XL towing 4 tires down

I know there are some members who tow VW standard tranny toads, but I can't remember who they are. Want to tow a 2014 VW Jetta TDI with 6 speed tranny with a 1995 XL. Any info on tow bars, wiring harnesses, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Found a few cases of people flat towing these. Blue Ox makes everything for 'em. VW says no but then again BMW says I can't flat tow my 6-speed Mini Cooper.

Rick,
I know that Tom Sorrentino, used to tow a stick VW, don't know if he still does... I'll see if I can in touch with him and have him respond...

Rowland is your man. He has more VWs than the law allows and tows a Jetta TDI stick presently.

Hi Rick,
We used to tow a 1997 vw Passat TDI stick shift. We used a Roadmaster base plate. Magnetic lights. Just hook up put it in neutral and go. Sold it to a WOG member and he towed it to Alaska.
