Nissan Armada and Coachmen 292BHDS Liberty Edition Tow Report
Ok, just to show what the 2011 Nissan Armada can tow, here are my weights.
7240lbs- Trailer loaded with all except clothes and food. (The trailer is listed in having around 5600lbs dry weight to give you and idea how far off it can be from loaded.) I do have the fresh water tank about 1/3 full.
800lbs Hitch Weight (11) percent of total weight
As for the Armada:
MAX TOW- 9100
MAX TONGUE- 910
MAX FRONT AXLE- 3399
MAX REAR AXLE- 4299
Actual weights with difference from max:
5400lbs with a half tank of gas (Another 10 gal until full about 80lbs)
7150-5400= 1750 left for payload not including tongue weight
1750-800 (tongue weight)= 950 for rest of payload
Front axle- 2640
3399-2640= 759 left
4299-3520= 779 left
Tongue weight- 800 (11 percent of total trailer)
Gross combined- 12640
15100-12640= 2640 left
With my family of 4 including me, we are under all weights. The "shorter wheel base (123.2 inches)" is no problem with this 33.5ft trailer. I do have dual friction sway bars with a curt wd hitch. I tow at 64mph getting 10mpg. When towing, I can feel the trailer behind me but it is very stable. You will get the standard suck and blow when large vehicles pass on the highway. Great tow vehicle in my book.
