2006 Nissan Titan LE 4DR as a Tow Vehicle

Hello all. After a substantial investment in my p/u truck, I'm now looking for a travel trailer. I like a few Excella's I've seen, specifically the 25' and 28' foot versions. I would consider a used Safari/Classic also. Anybody with any experiences out there with the Titan towing a 25-28' Airstream? Thanks.

Do a search, you will find LOTS of info on similiar TV's. I towed my 25 with a 1/2 ton once...I now tow with a 3/4 ton.
My suggestion is to stay smaller (lighter). Anything over 6000# loaded up may not be a good idea for a 1/2 ton vehicle.
Just my experience...
Good luck

I am pulling a 2006 25ft classic with a 2004 Titan King Cab. I have about 8000 miles of pulling the classic in the last year. No problems as of date. Plenty of power I have had it to 12000 ft in the mountains. In 4th gear it runs about 1900 rpm and I am getting just shy of 11 miles to the gallon. Weight of the Classic as we load it is 7000 lbs. Tongue weight is the most limiting factor for my combination. The only thing I might throw caution out about is the brakes on the Classic are the new disc which may be masking any weaknest is the Titan

The devil is in the details...

there is quite a broad range of potential weights between a 25' safari and a 28' classic. And much depends on how the truck is configured, too. But I'm sure that somewhere in that range, with the limited information you've given, there is a good match.
