I think most of us (on the Forest River Forum) would have some sort of problem towing a Jayco product. Find yourself a reputable FR dealer, I'm sure someone in your area will chime in soon, and fall in love with the same floor plan. Then join us at Forest River rally, does Jayco even have those!

Since this is a Forest River Owners Forum and not a Jayco Owners Forum, we may not be much help.
You'll need to post all the specs for both truck and trailer.
ESPECIALLY the truck's payload capacity.

I considered that unit when shopping for my current one.
I think you will find it is closer to 9,000 lbs. ready to hit the road. Will it tow it , yes but it won't be fun.

You'll be close to it or maxed out with the Nissan towing capacity.

Towing a heavy TT with the Titan, with my experience, yes you will have issues. I had issues with sway that was hard to over come. I was pushed into other lanes once under hard braking do to the very heavy tongue weight. When I got home from that trip I traded off the Titan. It did a good job towing my previous TT weighing 6000 lbs fully loaded. Never an issue with that.

The Salem 32BHDD and Wildwood 32BHDS will be very similar to the Jayco. We looked at them before buying outs and liked the trim of the Salem over the Wildwood and Jayco.

As far as the TV it will be a bit much for the Titan.
