1) Payload, and it has been mentioned. Real-world payload of Titans are ~1,300 lbs once you factor in a few people and a full tank of gas. Keep in mind, an LE will have a slightly lower payload rating than an XE. Nissan only lists "maximum" payloads on its website. The way to find your real payload is to weigh your truck and subtract that # from the GVWR.
2) Axles: Titans (and all 1/2 tons I know of) have semi floating axles. That means they support the weight of the truck, and transfer power to the wheels. 3/4 ton and 1-ton trucks have full floating axles. They are stronger and better.......but heavy. But those heavy duty axles allow for much higher payloads.
3) Suspension tuning. Titan is "soft" (in the sense of carrying 2k lbs over the rear axle), just like the other 1/2 tons.
Basically, I have seen some older 25' 5th wheels that I'm sure would work with a well set-up Titan. But modern 5th wheels tend to get big and heavy quickly! I am not knocking the posters in this thread....but those guys did a lot of work to make their set-ups work for them. I'd say, and maybe they would too if you asked them........it's probably easier and safer to just buy a 3/4 ton truck for towing a new 5th wheel.
