I pull it with a dually and would not want to do it with less than a 3/4 ton. A Nissan or any half ton would a squirrely ride in my opinion

I would not be afraid to haul it with a half built for the task.

my f150 eco supercab can haul 11300 lbs and the payload is 1945 lbs according to the door jamb sticker so i wont have a ton of room but more than enough for a camping season.

Sure by all means use the f-150 especially if staying close to home. What I mean is I would not purchase a half ton truck with the specific idea of towing a 10k 35ft trailer. My setup is almost fifth wheel like with my 1,000lb golf cart in the bed. It is rock steady with new bilstein shocks

Short answer. No, not enough truck at all. Sure there are a FEW half tons that are capable, but only on paper in my opinion.
The Titan is not one of them.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have decided to sell my Titan and save up for a diesel before we start camping heavy next year.We really only make a couple of long trips but I don't want to take a chance. Seems like every camper we really like is not 1/2 ton towable.

I tend to not get involved with this type of question just because as you see you will get the " absolutely " no problem and the " absolutely NO WAY" type of answers. But I own a 2014 32BHDS and I think you are making a very good decision upgrading your truck. Any of the big 3 3/4 tons will do a great job. Good luck.

May i ask you why a diesel ?

Do you put lots of milleage in a year ? Lots of milleage towing or as a daily driver ?

Have you considered the HUGE increase in price and maintenance ?

Just curious :-)

I have a 2016 32BHDS and tow it with a 2013 2500 gas. Short trips around the area that truck does just fine. Leaving out friday and taking it on the first long trip. E. KY to Rodanthe NC. I would stay away from the 1500 with a TT of that size

Towing

Hey, kickthtires, would be interested in what MPG's you are getting with your gas 2500HD if you care to share and what you get on your up coming trip to NC. I avg 11 mpg with my diesel @ 64-65 mph pulling my 32BHDS.

With our '13 6.0 CCSB 4x4 we get about 8-9ish @ 65ish towing our 32. I haven't weighed our rig again since changing a few things, but estimate ~9200lbs loaded when all 4 bikes are on the bike rack in the rear cargo hitch.
