The Nissan has a 4L V6 rated at 285HP and 5 speed Auto. The 22T weighs in at 3,222# and when you add passengers, pets, fuel, fresh water, etc we are at 4,000# which gives us 1,000# of discretionary capacity ... enough if we pack light, shop local and keep the waste water tanks empty. So far there has not been any problem taking local roads with 12% hills ... the brakes don't fade and the engine doesn't protest .... of course we never set any land speed records, either .

Slow and steady ... we see more of the scenery that way!

Good to hear... we just bought a 24ft and I have a Nissan Frontier. I do not plan to pull it too long behind that before I sell that truck, so it will only be for a season ot two! The person I bought it from actually pulled it behind a Toyota 4runner and told me that they never had any issue (it was a v6). We live in Colorado with Mnts, so there are plenty of slopes! Hearing they didnt have issues is what pushed us over the edge to purchase our first Hi Lo! First Camper PERIOD!
