Default XT-205

Hi there,

I'm new to this forum as we're looking at a XT-205 as a possible choice for a toy hauler. The layout seems rather similar to the KZ MXT20 (except lighter even with a slide out).

The problem (if it is one) is that we need to tow with a '06 Nissan Frontier (6300lbs max towing, 630lbs max tongue weight). And was wondering if that is feasible.

Any experiences to share?

Thank you,

I would suggest calling Hunter at Allseasons rv, he helped us with our Funfinder and he knows a lot about towing and capacities. The store number is 231 739 5269.

Your truck will do the job no problem if you are mindful of what you load, and how you load. The numbers depends on whether you own a 4X4, or 4X2.

Look at the numbers...
Your truck has a Gross Combined Weight Rating (the max the truck AND trailer can weigh) 11,133lbs
If its a 4X2, your truck weighs Apprx 4200lbs
The trailers Gross Weight Rating is 6,325, trailer plus all you load into it has to be below this.

With the trailer fully loaded, hitched to the truck, it will weigh 10,525lbs, leaving 608bs for you, passenger and some equipment.

For the tongue weight, use a weight distribution system to transfer the tongue weight from the hitch to the trailer and front of the truck.
