The trailer in question is a 5'er, not a bumper pull. No weight distribution hitch required. However, once loaded it will likely exceed the manufacturers rated load/cargo capacity without a driver or passengers in the TV. Will the truck handle it? Probably, but there have been numerous threads on rated capacity vs. actual capability and they do get heated.I personally would be concerned with that dry hitch weight. That's pretty high and depending on the holding tanks location and how you load your gear you may not be able to overcome the loaded weight difference correctly with a weight distributing hitch.
That was a glaring mistake on my part. I didn't realize that it was a fifth wheel.The trailer in question is a 5'er, not a bumper pull. No weight distribution hitch required.

Yeah but typically it would be the 43 gal plus 6 hot water gallons dispersed into the two grey water tanks and some black water. Unless you add water and not empty.Wow....I don't know if you realized this but the holding tanks on that particular camper will hold 1200lbs of water if they are all full (which I know typically doesn't happen). That's surprising to me.
Diesel 4x4 SVWell now, this is a loaded question. My first question would be which Titan XD trim? Second, gas or diesel? Third, are you OK with being over the GVWR/other max weights as listed by Nissan? Safety is subjective to your vehicle, load, driving style, driving conditions, etc... So lets answer the questions about your vehicle first.
Your only hold back is payload numbers you will be under the combined weight rating.The reason I ask this, is because I want to recheck some of my thoughts.
It seems to me, everything about this truck is somewhat under-rated in comparison to what the individual parts can actually do.
The chassis itself seems capable of more weight than it is limited
The engine pulls school buses full of demons, I mean kids, along with other medium heavy duty uses.
The transmission is the Aisan, which is on trucks rated to 28+K.
Now, just because it could pull more, does not mean I have any intent to actually over load it.
I just want it to be safe at the stated limits.
Just got back from another test drive in a nice Cayenne Red, SV that is marked down from 52 to 44.
Trying to figure what I can get it out the door for.
I bought my Frontier at this dealership and we mauled them on the deal, because it was one of those peculiar models that nobody wanted, green, auto, air, bucket seat and that was about it.
We also had an actual invoice to work from, so we knew exactly where we should be below invoice to get it done.
Consumer reports no longer seems to have actual numbers, instead they use that "true car" nonsense which has about 1500 off MSRP, and this thing is already well under that.

Atc is right, add in a 5th wheel hitch and you're already Over the DRY weight. Those dry weights are alway very optimistic numbers. Add in a couple people, a dog, some gear and you're hundreds of pounds over. Will the XD handle it? I'm sure it would. Is it over Nissans ratings? Yes it is. I would also bet your pin weight will be over 1,600 lbs. the dry weights are figured with no water, gear, or even optional equipment in the camper (ovens, furniture pkgs, maybe even the spare tire). Also, as an FYI, a guy here got a Platinum Reserve 2x4 for right around $49k. You may be able to shake that tree a bit more and get it for less than $44k!If you have the extra option packs your sitting at 1543 available lbs of payload. And trailer has an empty pin weight 1520 lbs.
My understanding under 8500 GVWR rating 300 lbs total driver and passenger. 8500 GVWR plus same driver and passenger but an extra 100 lbs for gear of some sort.I read somewhere that the J2807(?) standard include the weight of two larges adults and over 300lbs of extra equipment in the bed of the trucks. But please do your own validation. This is the internet after all
This std is about towing, not payload.GVWR is GVWR.... If the trucks GVWR is 8900 and the truck weighs in at 7,300 lbs all by itself, you can add 1600lbs of weight. If you use up 400 lbs of that with people, you have 1,200 left for cargo. And since a 5th wheel is what he is wanting to pull with this truck, the payload will become the first limiting factor.I read somewhere that the J2807(?) standard include the weight of two larges adults and over 300lbs of extra equipment in the bed of the trucks. But please do your own validation. This is the internet after all
