Here are measurements of one that we are looking at:How small is this travel trailer.
Make you you get a photo of that. A boat in the back of a 13 Pathfinder. That will show the naysayers how it is done.I should try my first boat tow with the new Pathfinder next weekend. Trying to get the recommended 500 mile pre-towing break-in done first, per the owner's manual. Boat on trailer combo is 3800 lbs. I have towed this boat with a '98 Explorer (OK but definitely a load back there), an '05 Pathfinder (plenty of power, noticeable load but not bad) and an '08 Tahoe (hardly know anything is back there). I'm quite curious to see how the new Pathfinder does.
I am also finding really nice towing performance as you described. In regards to visibility it would be great to have a camera extension device we can clip on the back of the trailers and see on our dash monitors when backing up. maybe something similar for side views. I wonder if there is anything like that out there.I towed the boat home from storage over the weekend. Got the 500 mile pre-towing break-in accomplished first. It was only about a 20 mile trip, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were no issues with the 3800 lb boat/trailer rig - hook-up was easy, 7-pin light connection worked fine. My trailer has surge brakes so no issues there. Towing was easy with plenty of power, although I took it easy since I'm still under 1200 miles. I agree with everything "justchecking" said a few weeks back. Towing seemed smoother than with my previous three vehicles ('98 Explorer, '05 Pathfinder, '08 Tahoe) which may be a benefit of the CVT - no "jolt" at each gear change. I also noticed the "rattle" from the hitch receiver and will wrap my hitch bar with duct tape to try to quiet it down some. It was pretty loud. Backing up seemed smoother as well - didn't have to give it as much gas to get rolling and then have to get out of it - again, may be a CVT benefit. The only issue I noticed, different than my other vehicles, is that I no longer have partial rearview vision directly behind the boat from the rearview mirror. It seems to be because of the downward slope of the roof to the rear means a smaller rear window that blocks the view I had with my other vehicles. Not a biggie, but something I was used to. I may look into some side tow mirrors for a little more rear vision.
