I haven't been able to pull a camper because I still have not resolved the brake defect on my 2004 Nissan Titan. Plus when Nissan stopped backing the warranty on my 2004 Nissan Titan at 24000 miles and 30 months, I had to spend $800 out of pocker on my 4th set of rotor and brake pads. So at this point, even though I have the big tow package, I wouldn't even trust towing a camper. Probably would have the rotors go out quicker.

I see. I assume that that was the normal end of the warranty on brakes? I haven't looked at the manual lately. I have heard that an aftermarket set of larger rotors is avail that might reduce/eliminate the overheating/warping issue, but you would then need to buy larger rims to accomodate them. Might be a one time thing, but $$$ !
#6 of 21 Camper tie-downs

Trying to find camper tie-downs for 2005 Titan King Cab. HappiJacks won't work because front ones go into the bed wall, and I understand that wall isn't sturdy enough on the Titan. Torklift makes frame-mounted tie-downs, but they seem elaborate, expensive, and they say they won't work if running board (or whatever that is now called) extends rearward into the bed area - which mine does. Local Titan dealer and camper dealers know nothing. Help. This shouldn't be a major problem, but so far I can't find anything. To response off-group, sent to titancamperralphestes.com Thanks.

Peter I was towing a 30 ft. travel trailer behind my 2005 Titan and totaled my truck & travel trailer. I was passing a trackter trailer just got by him lost control because of the draft. The tires are only 6 ply side walls.By a bigger & heavy duty truck to pull a travel trailer. I was well within my towing limits.

I have a 2004 Titan CC SE and had a brake issue too. However, my dealer took care of the problem the first time I took it in.
Did you ever complain to the BBB, file a suit, or anything against that dealer?

I have an 2004 Titan w/ the Big Tow Pkg. Regarding the brake issues that have been frequently discussed, I had my front rotors and pads replace under warranty before the infamous brake judder reared it's ugly head. Also, the rear rotors were turned and new pads were installed. Once again, all under warranty.
As far as towing, I recently purchased a 29 ft Starcraft Travel Trailer. The Titan towed it with absolutely no problems, (aside from sucking lots of fuel)! The trailer weighs about 4,600 lbs but I do have the Equalizer Weight distribution hitch and the Prodigy electronic brake controller. I believe these two things made a big difference.

Exactly how bad was the fuel milage and did it have enough power to pull without being in a strain. I have a 28' Dutchman trailer & am looking at the Titan truck because of its horsepower & torque #s

I have a 28' Dutchman trailer & am looking at the Titan truck because of its horsepower & torque #s I was wondering if anyone had pulled a camper that size with a 06,07 or 08 Titan truck and if so what kind of fuel milage did you get and did it have enough power to pull without being in a strain.

I have an '05 SE with the big tow package. I've towed a 26' power boat that weighed #6,300 and a 29' travel trailer that weighed about the same. No problem with power, but it tends to down shift on slight grades. In the Blue Ridge Mountains the transmission temp rose a bit, but no problems. As to mileage - it really depends on your speed and throttle usage. Accelerate slowly, even though it will move out if needed. At 65 on the interstate(I don't go any faster than that) mileage with a fully loaded trailer is in the upper 9's mpg range. Drop down to just under 60, and I've gotten 11.2 mpg on my best run. No major modifications - synthetic oil, tire pressure at maximum and a K&N air filter. Hope this helps.
