Nissan Titan XD with a Cummins Diesel 5.9L V8

I just bought a Nissan Titan XD with a Cummins Diesel 5.9L V8. If you look at the towing capacity at the front of this thread it has one of the better towing capacities. I am looking at a 30 foot Airstream and I think it will do well. At this point I don't know if it will, but this is the nicest truck I have ever owned. It puts the Dodge RAM 2500 with Cummins to shame. It is a great ride.

It should pull a 30' Airstream just fine.

Didn't know they put a diesel in that. Post a pic! Sounds awesome.

Will it tow a 30'? Absolutely. BUT.......STOP right there and check your payload sticker on your drivers side B-pillar. I'm going to guess that you are around 1500lbs. Now factor in your tongue weight of, let's just say 950lbs. That leaves you 550lbs for people/cargo assuming you do not get a 150-200lb truck cap. You may be closer to your max payload numbers (not towing capacity) than you think.
Just food for thought.

Paul Zmann, I would love to know your payload # in that Nissan XD. I looked at one at the local dealer and was really bummed out to see the 1500lb payload rating.

No more payload than a 1/2 ton gas...
The numbers in malinois38's post are similar to my Tundra.
Maxed out on payload by the numbers, but does a good job towing (and stopping) my Classic 30.

Very informative thread. Being an ecodiesel owner towing a 25ft AS a couple things surface in my mind. The payload leaves a lot to be desired but the mpg sure helps at the pump. My truck is also my daily driver, it's not married to my trailer so more than payload comes into play here. Much of that tongue weight gets transferred to the front axel with my WDH, I know it does not go away but the redistribution does factor in. The Diesel engine itself is very capable in every towing situation I've been in, from the Kansas plains to the Rocky Mountains. My truck has 4 corner air bags that does help when traveling at capacity weight. The brakes are more than adequate with excellent stopping power & the truck itself is very comfortable.
Having said all that I'm a believer that you can never have to much truck so if you want or feel the need for a 3/4 or full ton diesel that's ok too. I've looked at that Nissan Titan XD 5.0 Cummins & had to control myself, it's referred to as " a heavy half" meaning it's more truck than other 1/2 tons on the market & I believe it, it's got the girth of a 3/4 & very impressive

"So this evening I gathered some factoids from Google. These are all subject to correction, but since the source was the same for all, there were no favorites. If I slighted your truck, likely I slighted your rival’s truck too.
. . . . . . . .
There are some surprises in this list. If not, I would not have bothered to create this post. There are no diesel trucks here.
. . . . . . . .
Chevy 2500..........14,500 lbs.....3,559 lbs
Chevy 3500..........13,800 lbs.....6,288 lbs
Ford F-250 F-350..12,500 lbs.....4,267 lbs - 4,477 lbs (tie)
Nissan Titan..........12,310 lbs.....2,589 lbs.
Ram 3500.............11,910 lbs.....4,476 lbs
Ram 2500.............11,890 lbs.....3,060 lbs

Chevy 1500.............9,400 lbs.....1,990 lbs
Ram 1500...............8,780 lbs.....1,933 lbs"

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a Cummins Diesel 5.0 Liter V8. They didn't start offering Gas Guzzlers until August or September.

malinois38 posted a question about my Nissan Titan XD
"Can you please tell me your payload # for your Nissan? It is written on your driver's side B-pillar and maya called cargo capacity. Should be on a yellow sticker. Thanks and nice truck. I've been drooling for Toyota to come out with the same so I could better tow my 28' International. But the more research I do, I don't think I will gain that much in payload. I currently have 1325lbs of payload"

Attached is the towing capacity chart and the only label on the door B Pillar. I opted for a Blue truck because had I gotten the Red one the Santa comments would have been unrelenting.

I'm looking at a 2000, 30 foot with a slider. At 9100 GVWR the Nissan should pull it well, and the Blue stripe matches the truck pretty well!

Does that mean that with a diet that carves off the beer gut, you'd have the same CC?😘

It means that I wouldn't gain much by trading in a paid for truck to get a $56,000 truck with a huge monthly payment.
As an owner of both Nissans and Toyotas I prefer the Toyota dealership experience- purchase and service after the sale- to the Nissan experience.
I have found my Toyotas to be more trouble free than my Nissans.

I've had a Toyota, Dodge & now the Nissan. The Nissan is best of the 3. I paid about $42500 for the truck. My wife 125 lbs, I'm 200, that's 325 lbs. it's good for me. I guess you need a 1 ton Beast.

How Much Truck Do You Need?

2 Toyotas over the last 9 years and 3 Nissans over the past 21 years...
No, I do not need a 1 ton...
Never have, never will.
