Is that a V-8? Needs to be to haul that rig. Seems like the wheel base on the truck is short and narrow. Better check the weight of the trailer and the towing capacity of the truck. You can put a hitch in any truck bed,but will the truck do the job?

Trailer pin weight probably has the truck over it's GVWR. I would not want to drive it very far. Seems over priced as well.

I don't know about the price. Get a baseline price from NADA.com for both the trailer and TV, and offer less than the average retail. If the FW weighs no more than 6K lbs. loaded, add the pin weight to the truck's anticipated load (people, dogs, stuff in the bed already, etc.). to ensure you rear axle is not overloaded. If the truck is rated to handle 6K lbs. and the pin weight is not too high, it's probably a good combination.

Here is the 2007 Nissan towing guide...

Makes a difference between 2 and 4wd and with/without tow package.

Might want to look those numbers over. The GVWR on that truck is more like 8800# and with 1700# pin weight, you are probably over the trucks GVWR unless you trucks curb weight is less than 7100# (wet and loaded). Your GCWR might be 18000# (maybe 20000#), but not the GVWR.

Where does the 22000# number come from.

I would also think that a 35' Montana would have a pin weight somewhere over 2500lbs...and would weigh more than 9000?

I think this has been sold because the Ad has been removed.
