Your definition of small clearly isn't mine. I was expecting something entirely different.

Well, I would assume it is a 1/2 ton....so yes, to some of us with large trailers, it is presumably a small diesel.

Keep in mind I am towing a 34' with a Honda Odyssey.

But back on topic, if I'd ever buy a truck, the Nissan looks like a nice vehicle.

I know, Andy. We have a great divide in philosophy. Do we have to go there again? I'm leaving that one alone...as well as hitch debates.

Happy Airstreaming!

Interesting - last I heard Nissan was evaluating a Titan with a 4 cylinder Cummins in it... a scaled-down version of the one that the Dodge Ram gets.

It's about time. Between the Ram and now the Nissan, I am assuming the other players will also offer a 1/2 diesel powered pick-up. The benefits of diesel for towing are significant. Now, we will not be forced to go to a heavy duty truck to get these benefits.

While there are huge differences of opinion about TV's, hitches and tires, we mostly agree with the rest of the setup, i.e., the Airstream itself. Sort of like how politics used to be.

Sorry. You are correct. I was being facetious, no harm intended.

I wasn't aware there was a "fray" going on ....
It's about time one of the suppliers offered this combo to the buyers.
Wow , a Cummins in a 1/2 ton. hopefully it'll have a upgraded brake package.
I'm tired of getting teased by GM and it's promises of a diesel Burb.
