Towing with a Frontier

I have a 2011 Nissan frontier v6 rated for 6300lbs that I need to tow a 2013 fb22 Jayflight with a weight distribution hitch from S. Florida to Montana next week? Any thoughts on how it should do?

That trailer specs empty at 4150#, tongue weight 565#, and max GVWR is 6500#. You should be ok unless the trailer is loaded to the max.

I think it should be ok myself. 4100lb. trailer, you, cargo, etc. should be within the 6300lb limit. It's the power of the vehicle that I'd be worried about. Some BA hills in Montana. Not to mention between Fla. and there.

You'll make it if you take it easy. And don't expect much, "Keeping up with the big boys."

For a one-way delivery of somebody else's TT, OK.

If it were my trailer, I'd be shopping for a new tow vehicle.

As you see in my signature, we run a 1/4 ton truck with a slightly smaller trailer. It works, but a 1/2 ton would be more appropriate.

The weight shouldn't be an issue, as others have stated, if it's not maxed out. I tow a smaller hybrid, 16XRB, with a 2012 Xterra, which does fine up to about 62mph, even up normal grades. Then, it's all about the wind resistance after that. Make sure you have a well adjusted brake control. Along with the weight distribution, I'd be sure to have sway control as well.
