Nissan pick up

Any Nissan pick ups out there? Looking at a Nissan 2011 v8, will be towing a wildwood 261BH xl TT. If you are Nissan owner I would like to hear from you. Thanks in advance.

Also what is the truck's payload capacity.
It's on the yellow sticker on the drivers door.

Here goes. Engine is 5.6 v8 crew cab, shirt bed, 4x4, 3.357 gear. Pay load 1644 (c) ??.
Max tow 9100 (c)
It has towing package. This tow number seems high to me.

Ok this tt has a dry weight of 4352 lb with a cargo capacity of 3082 lbs giving it a gvwr of 7434 lbs. In reality you are not likely to put 3000 lbs of cargo in that tt. On average most people tend to add 1000-1500 lbs of stuff to their tt. That would put you at 5350 - 5852 lbs loaded. Ideal tongue weight is 13-15% of loaded tt weight. Based on the above estimated loaded weights, that would give you an estimated tongue weight of 695 - 878 lbs.

Remember any options on the truck detract from brochure payload so you need to check the tire loading sticker for "occupants and cargo should not exceed x lbs" that is your true payload. You then need to subtract the weight of all occupants, pets and gear in the truck. The number left needs to be higher than the tongue weight of the trailer.


My knee jerk reaction is you will be fine with this combo.

I towed a 30 ft Passport with a 2006 Titan and never had any problems but didn't tow in the mountains with it. Plenty of power but make sure you have LT tires on the truck AND it has the tow package and you will be fine.
Oh yes, good luck on the gas milage!! It stunk!!

2006 Nisan Titan with over 102500 miles on her. Towing 34' Salem 272rl. Happy gets the job done. Crew cab so claimed tow jumps to 9900. From memory. Fuel millage towing has been 7 to 9 mph. That may seam Low, but the combo is heavy.
So first picture is from this weekend. Kept up with diesel and newer f150. So I can't complain. Click image for larger version

All good points... make sure you have the heavy duty transmission cooler on your truck.

I would double check those numbers. I could be wrong but I think the 3.357 gears are only rated for ~7500 towing, you will need the 3.6 something gearing to get the #9300 towing. Does the truck have extendable mirrors and transmission temp gauge?
