That hitch could support two bicycles perhaps, and who needs w.d/sway control? That is funny as h___ Bob!

I'm sorry, that whole set-up just scares me. Worst part is, someone will look at this and say 'hmmm, if they did it on tv.......'
Honestly, I wonder how long this ad will last before an attorney has it pulled from the air.
Thanks, Derek

And that Barrister should be on a JC retainer.
Makes you wonder if the ad department screened/approved or even knew of it's use.

Well, it does have a 5000 lb towing capacity!

In Canada they could easily tow a 34 footer with this thing.

Don't confuse me with the facts

From Nissan sales copy...

"The previous Pathfinder was a heavy, rugged truck adept at off-road adventures and towing. But its downsides included cramped quarters for second- and third-row passengers, a trucklike driving demeanor and mediocre fuel mileage.


Yes, the lighter and more efficient new Pathfinder gives up some towing capacity to its forebear, but it can still tow up to 5,000 pounds. That's a strong number for a midsize, seven-passenger crossover..."

Hey, follow (not too close) that down the road. You just might be able to get a free Airstream when that hitch setup fails. Looks like a 1". Is it?

I think 2013 Nissan Pathfinder's message is that "No toy is left behind" with their CVT transmission, V-6 and tow mode, not necessarily with any particular hitch setup:

Nissan Pathfinder Powerful Towing

Yes.... but no lights or brakes, I think even the Frostback's require that.

I saw the P-finder ad on TV last night towing a 31' mid 70's Airstream. At least the trailer looked nice......
