Nice photo. What is the towing capacity, wheelbase and payload on the Pathfinder V8?

Your payload is everything you expect to add to a completely empty Pathfinder.


Driver, Passengers, Gear, Dog, Beer, etc..... and the tongue weight of the TT


You are pushing the GVWR of the tow vehicle I think.


The GVWR sets some limits related to Alex limits, Tire weight limits, Safe Braking abilities and engine/Tranny limits

I have the 5.6L V8. Same motor that's in the Titan and Armada. Maximum Trailer Weight is 7,000lbs. My Trailer dry is just over 5,000lbs with two full propane tanks. GVWR for the trailer is 7,200 lbs. My trailer Tongue weight allowance is 700lbs. My trailer has a tongue weight of just over 600lbs. Payload is 1393lbs. 112.2inch wheelbase.

Thanks for your heads up and concern. From my understanding the payload usually already accounts for the driver. I may be wrong. However the Pathfinder towed my trailer about 150 miles about 2 weeks ago over a 5,000ft pass with no issues except an average MPG of 7 MPG on the way there and 8 MPG on the way back.

just curious if u have ever run across the scales to actually see what your axle weights are? Mostly here I hear about the axle weight of trucks and different trailers but just curious about the suvs and whether peeps have had them checked.

I have not yet. I've only taken one real trip with my TT. I don't really count the trip from the dealer to my house. I'll put it on my list of things to do on the next trip and report back.

I would be curious to see your actual scaled weights as well. We have a 2014 28BHS and the first time I took it out the tongue weight was in the 900 to 1000lbs range and it overloaded our "old" 2013 F150 (157" wheelbase)which had a similar 1400lb payload that your pathfinder has.
We managed to redistribute some weight (load up the bunks) and get down to about 13% tongue weight which is about 830lbs.
Trailer is 6280lbs with all the permanent gear in it. No food or clothes.

That winch and brush bar will also eat into your payload a fair bit.

Cheers
