Can I tow a 2013 Jayco Swift 264BH?

Hi!

I am about to pull the trigger and buy a 264bh. My tow vehicle is a 2011 Nissan Titan CC SV with tow package. Towing Capacity is 9300lbs. Dry weight of 264BH is 4700lbs. Of course the dealership tells me I can, but I need the opinion of some Jayco owners who have a similar set-up. Will it be a comfortable pull? Thanks so much!!!

Hopefully a new Jayco Owner Soon!!!

The only slight concern I would have it Cargo Capacity. The 264 Tongue weight + Weight of Hitch needs to be included in the Titans Cargo Weight capacity. Look in the drivers door, see what it states as cargo weight rating and start doing math. This total needs to to inlcuded passengers, cargo, and WD Hitch + TT Tongue weight. For reference my 26BH tongue weight is right at 700lbs.

Online I see titans CCC ranging from 1450 - 1900. If you make this limit, I think you are good to go.

Don't forget that Jayco published weights are "Unloaded" weights unless otherwise noted, best to work with "loaded" weights. Figure a loaded tongue weight to be in the 10% to 15% range (of TT loaded weight) ...., 13% to 15% would be more desirable for the 264BH.

To estimate TT loaded weight (short of going to a CAT scale): If the TT is at the RV dealer, there will be a yellow sticker on the outside wall with the "ship weight", use this weight as a starting point.... then add weight of RV dealer added items (ie: battery, etc.), cargo (500lbs would be conservative), fluids (if you tow with tanks full), etc..
