I've got a Salem Cruise Lite 19bh which is about 21' weighing around 3100 lbs dry. I pulled it with a ford ranger V6 king cab for a little while. It had a tow capacity of 5200 lbs but was too slow for my taste in the hills so I upgraded to a Nissan Titan and its soooo much better. But I've heard of several people pulling this trailer with a Pathfinder without issues.

That would work. It is only 7 feet wide so less frontal area. The pictures next to the layout on the manufactures page don't lineup with the layout. It looks like it would be very tight in there with 4 people on a rainy day.

Also, there are 4 of us using it. The two bunk beds are perfect for the kids. We camp to be outside so don't really need much more space inside.

Since that one isn't a FR product, please post specs or a link to its specs.

I towed my current trailer 24 ft box (26ft w/a-frame hitch) its a Tracer 240AIR that had a dry weight of 4,100# with 2011 Pathfinder w/6,000# max towing. I was using a chain WDH hitch and sway bar. I didn't make any modifications to the Pathfinder (airbags etc.) The pathfinder did feel like it was getting pushed around a lot. Going up step hills was difficult. The back of the pathfinder did sag. In a straight line at 55 mph it did alright. I wouldn't go any larger than that. However, it did feel unsafe. I was probably around 90-95% with loaded gear. I would say stay around 3,500# with loaded gear.

I recommend a hard sided hybrid camper that has canvas beds that fold out. we had one a few years ago, and loved it, but we didn't need all the beds after the kids got out on their own. Forest River had several floorplans. ours had a couch and dinette that also folded down into beds as well as fold out beds on each end and one on the roadside that folded out. you can get them with our without slideouts for more floor space

I never thought of a hybrid or even knew they made them, would my Nissan pull this just fine:

Palomino Stampeded

20ft long and 3359 dry weight

Again thank you everyone for the help, just don't want to get the wrong one.
