    Hey there, we have a 2018 PF, and are about to purchase a Jayco Flight West 174BH. It's just under 22', with a dry weight of 3,075lbs. They are going to install a total tow kit package as well. A bit nervous as to how our PF will pull it though. Any input or experiences?
  2. Towing
    Just purchased a used Starcraft Pop-up Camper to pull behind our 2017 Pathfinder. Dry weight 3440. Overall weight of the trailer does not seem to be a problem, but this camper has a very heavy tongue weight. Just had a weight distribution hitch installed, which raised the rear 2" and smooths the...
  3. Towing
    I have a 2017 Pathfinder Platinum and it says I can tow up to 6,000 lbs. Does anyone tow a travel trailer with one and have any recommendations for what not to/what to do? We have not yet purchased a trailer but need to know what to consider.
  4. Towing
    Hi everyone, I've been reading lots of posts in this forum, researching on the internet, calling NIssan and of course the dealer, but I still can't find the definitive answer to my question: Does the PF of this generation have heavy duty alternators, transmission cooling across the trim lines...

    I have a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder SV that is FWD. I am thinking of buying a fishing boat, but before I make the purchase I want to make sure I won't have issues getting off the boat ramp. The boat I am looking at has a combined weight of roughly 2500 lbs. Has anyone experienced issues getting...

    I'm planning on cross country move with 6'x12' cargo trailer from u-haul. My estimated mileage I would be traveling is around 2200 miles, from Oklahoma to Seattle. Do you think my pathfinder can handle this long trip with trailer in this spec? What is the max cargo weight can I comfortably...
  7. Towing
    Hey everyone. So we have a new 2020 Pathfinder with a rating of 6000 lb towing capacity. We just ordered a boat and hoping the Pathfinder will handle it well on the boat ramp pulling it out. We think it’ll be fine but as a first time boat owner, we are nervous about the unknown... We have a 21...
  8. Pathfinder Warranty and Service Issues
    So I have a 2017 with the 100K mile extended warranty. I added a class III draw-tight trailer hitch. It's designed for the vehicle and required no cutting or drilling, straight bolt on design. I also installed the interior portion of a 7 pin wiring harness, again, designed for the vehicle, no...

    Hello, 2018 Pathfinder owner here. We recently purchased an A frame travel trailer and would like to bring along a generator from time to time. The only reasonable spot to place it (outside the RV) would be on a front mount (bumper) rack. It seems that there are none made for model years after...

    What upgrades can I do to my pathfinder to make it better at off-roading and towing, and where can I get them? ---Such as--- ~ Lift kit ~ Suspension ~ Air intake systems ~ Towing packages ~ Snorkel ~ Bush grills ~ Mudflaps ~ Wheels ~ Tires

    We have a 2018 PF 4x4 SL and with towing capacity of 6,000lb. We recently bought a camper with dry weight of 4,000lb and equalizer hitch. The PF tows the camper, loaded to about 4,800lb at max, beautifully, except for some squat. We are about 3inches in sagging with the camper riding level. We...
