I have a 2007 Nissan titan XE with 4 wheel drive and tow package. My family consists of two adults and four small children. Can I tow my 6800 pound fourwinds TT with WD hitch effectively? Is the gross weight of the truck labeled on the truck or do I have to have it weighted? Thanks for your time.:lol: :lol: :lol:

You shouldn't have no problem with towing. I have a 05 SE 4x4 and tow a 27ft TT. Towed earlier this year in 98-100 degree weather, 2 adults, 2 children, and our household dog. Towed in 4th gear with Tow Mode on, 60 mph with A/C on Max. No problems.

The GVW should be on the sticker inside the drivers door.

Stay out of 5th(OD) and downshift to 3rd before waiting for the trans to do so...and if it runs 3500-3800 rpm up the grades don't worry it runs just fine like that.

Is the 6800 the dry weight of the TT, or the GVWR of the TT?

Also, the titan payload is limited, so you have to count the weight of the adults and the 3 kids and the hitch weight from the TT.

I think your ok, but your probably pushing the GVWR for the Titan.

The weakness in the Titan isn't its towing capacity or the engine, its the payload of the titan being just a half ton.

I tow a 5000lb dry TT loaded to probably around 6000 and have two adults and two kids ... and often bring a 130 genset and 4 bikes with me. And this righ tows pretty good in the Colorado mtns in 4th.

I'd say your probably fine, but you can take it to a weight station to figure out exactly where your at.

The dry weight of the trailer is 6800#. Thanks for your response.

With the WD setup properly, you should be within specs, though not by a huge margin. I would suggest running the truck tires at 40-44 psi (more margin to avoid heat buildup and blowouts, though the trailer tires are usually the weakest link on this), and to avoid carrying too much heavy stuff in the bed.

You can probably tow the neighbors kids too! (IF THEY'D FIT) The GVWR is set with PLENTY of room to play with. Technically, I go over mine all the time. I pack the bed with bikes, firewood, fishing gear etc, then inside I have myself, the wife and 3 kids, and an 8500LB (approx) TT with a 960LB tongue weight. No problems so far in over 3 years,.
