Yes the CAT scales are your friend. With that said, I have a 2005 Titan with the big tow package and it pulls our WhiteHawk 29SQB with no fuss, and we're safely under the limits of the truck.

There you go. Payload capacity of 1653

Around 800 lbs of that will be tongue weight. That leaves you about 800 for passengers and cargo in the truck.

Close, but manageable if you are thoughtful of that basic math.

Again, just my.02

Use 4th gear to tow with the Titan. 5th gear overheats the tranny in the Titan. Put the tow button on. It adjusts the trucks shift points.

I don't want to be a voice of negativity but I posted a story on another thread regarding an unfortunate set of events leading to an accident with my neighbor and his Ford F-150 (both his TT and truck were totaled). Though he was towing a much longer TT. There are those who speculated he was over his weight or dangerously close to it, I can vouch, he was a good 800 to 1000 pounds under his vehicles capabilities, also speed was not an issue, at the time of the accident the investigation found he was traveling at 58MPH in a 65 . In the end he now has a new 3/4 ton TV and a new TT, though he went a Hideout TT in the 28 foot range I don't hold it against him (lol). The issue with his accident was the sequence of events that aligned perfectly. It was figured out that while under weight, he was towing to long of a TT for the virtually empty bed conditions of his TV. The resulting whip from the sway caused the "tail to wag the dog" as it was.
Meanwhile, the other friend who was following immediately behind him and experienced almost the identical conditions at the scene of the accident didn't have any control issues with a 1 ton truck (there was enough ass end weight with the TV to keep the tail from wagging the dog).

From the sounds of things you have a good TV and TT combination and shouldn't have any issues. I would recommend a couple of trips in it to see how things go before you rush out to a new TV. The odds of anyone running into the same situation my neighbor experienced are pretty rare (it was a perfect storm of events that aligned).
