White Hawk 28bsbh

Own a 2006 Nissan Titan with a tow package. Considering the white hawk 28bsbh. Total weight of trailer loaded is 6800 lbs. truck capacity 9300 lbs. all numbers look good. Any advise?

Too much for your truck. Do some searching and you will find many discussions about towing this size of camper with a half ton pickup.

Our old (2007) GMC 1500 (with full tow package) could 'pull' our WH 25BHS, but when tackling hills, as DW, I 'white-knuckled' so we upgraded to what you see in the signature. Driving either up or down the Grapevine (I-5), the coastal range (SR-17), or Pacheco Pass (SR-152) and WOW, what a difference ... like cutting steak with a butter-knife ... and so much less stress. Now looking forward to tackling the Rockies!

I would advise to take a look at other forums (e.g. Airsteam forum) where there are more people towing with cars other than trucks and they can share real life experience. I do not know your car at all, so can't tell you whether it is sufficient car or not. I will be towing 28DSBH with SUV.

It is not only numbers you should look at to find comfortable and safe towing. Towing is almost like science - suspension, brakes, engine power, rear overhang, hitch... all makes the difference.
