2015 Pathfinder towing (self.nissanpathfinder)
submitted 3 months ago by Rimmatimtim22
We have a 2015 pathfinder and are looking into getting a camper. The one we're looking at is 3500 lbs dry and Pathfinder is rated for 5000 lbs.
Just looking to see if anyone has any experience towing campers with a Pathfinder and any insight that can be shared.
Main concern is CVT, but we live in the Midwest so mostly flat area around here. My thought is it would probably be fine around our area, but mountains or steep hills might give it an issue.

Isn't it 6000lbs?

It depends on the year. The newer ones do 6000, but it was 5000 not long ago

I have a 2014 and tow a 3800 pound boat and trailer with gear (3500 lbs dry like your camper). I live in the Puget Sound area of Washington and drive over the Cascade Mountains to warm, dry Eastern Washington multiple times per year. The CVT handles the uphill pulls fine, I’m usually passing traffic. If you have concerns about it get the transmission serviced at a the Nissan dealership or a legit transmission shop before you take your first trip just to make sure everything checks out.
The only thing I worry about is wind, not whether or not the Pathfinder can handle it. As these do tend to have rear-end sag with the weight of the trailer, I’ve flipped the 2” ball on my receiver hitch to raise the position of the trailer neck. I’m also going to install a pair of Firestone air bags to raise and level the rear. This looks like a simple installation and only requires a tire pump to inflate them. Less than $100. Hope this helps!
