2011 Frontier SL pulling a 215WSK
Lots of valuable information in this forum, thanks to all of the contributors. I've finally settled on the FF 215 WSK, I pick it up in 2 weeks. The dealer weighed the unit at 4155 with tanks. After considering the numbers, and using a P3 controller and Equalizer WDS/Sway Control, I think it should be fine.
After considering vehicle weight, trailer weight, 500 lbs of cargo in the trailer, weight of people, fuel etc, I look to be about 2200 lbs under GCVWR.
With 500 lbs of cargo in the RV, properly loaded, I should be 1,845 below towing capacity.
I should be 220 lbs below max tongue weight.
The 125'' wheelbase is at the upper limits of trailer length.
Having said this, I will probably do a "test tow" and pick up a 189 if it's to much. The weight, width, and features are the reason I chose the fun finder. I'd prefer the 189 but my wife likes the 215. Im fairly certain the 189 wouldn't be a problem to tow.
Flat land where I live, about 80 miles each way for camping.
As much as I would love to see a post with this exact setup, I haven't. Based on the above info, does anyone think I'm nuts?
I will either find a way, or make one
