    Part 4 - Final

    Looking forward to hearing how it is going and if you have actually done very much pulling yet. How is the mileage? Just to confirm, your trailer is the whopping 29' 6900 GVWR 25LX.....Darn I thought that would kill my truck.....

    Regards, Bill

    I was comfortable at 50-55MPH on flats but down to 40-45 on the hills and mileage drooped to a sensible 18L/100km.
    When I looked up the Prowler and its weight class and punched the numbers into the load spreadsheet it indicated that even if the vehicle was completely empty(180lb driver only) and the trailer was absolutely empty, you would still be 300lbs over the GCVR spec on pg 10-20 in the manual.

    When I added a wife, daughter 240 luggage to the vehicle and 400lbs(Increased trailer total weight to 5214) to the trailer, it shows that I have exceeded the tire load by 200lbs(1323lbs) maxed out the Pathfinder GVWR(5983lbs) and exceeded the GCWR(10,000) by about 1,200lbs.

    Some of the things I worried about were how the CVT would handle it, over time, my warranty, and most of all would my insurance cover me if I were in an accident?

    I have been doing a lot of reading and from what I have been able to deduct, your are significantly over the towing capacity of a 2017 pathfinder and I want to know how that is going for you.
    I have not purchased yet and I almost bought one in the similar weight class as you have till I was told to do more homework as, I was told, I did not understand the towing limits and should not focus on the 6000lb towing limit as there are other vehicle limits which make the 6000lb towing limit not attainable on the pathfinder. Specifically the GCVR of 10,000 and the tire load limit of 1,145.
    I did rent a 19'(total lenghth about 21.5) trailer with a total loaded weight of about 4200lb(3800 dry) for 10 days and about 3000km through the east coast of Canada(Newfoundland/Nova Scotia) and it just could not maintain a 60-65mph through the hills and was whining at 5000RPM. I was averaging 27L/100km(about 8mpg I think).

    Good Day. I am in the exact same position your were in with regards to a travel trailer with a Pathfinder so I am very interested in your feedback and how you are making out. I just got signed up and have not been able to comment on any of your posts and cannot , yet, find out how to post to the trailer forum.

    Very eager to here more about how it is going. I have been three days trying to clarify that the hitch is even class 3 with a WD classification. After pushing customer support and the dealer, they both finally told me that the pathfinder only had a class 3 WC classification and did not have a WD(Weight Distribution) classified hitch.

    Talk to me , I cannot wait to get your feedback, because it is these questions that have stopped me from buying and I am going nuts.....

    Regards, Bill
