New 21DK

My wife and I are thinking of upgrading our popup to a Roo 21DK and we have a 2014 Nissan Frontier.
Wanted to know if anyone else toes with a Frontier and what they are towing and if there are any issues

I believe your Frontier has a tow max of 6000lbs., WITH the factory tow package.

The 21DK's GVWR will be close but your big issue will be the loaded hitch weight.
Could be at or over the Frontier's max hitch capacity.

Dry hitch weight on a 21dk is 586 lbs. It will be at least 700 lbs loaded. Your Frontier has a max cargo rating just under 1100 lbs. This only leaves you 400 lbs for total contents of your truck. That's driver, passengers, critters and gear. You're going to be over.

I love my dk and wholeheartedly recommend it. It is a great tow and easy to back up but I agree with the other replies...it's a bit heavy on the tongue.

New 21DK

Thanks for the input guys we also liked the Roo 19 looks like that may be better for us about 200 pounds less tounge weight and 400 less trailer weight
