Our New Tow Vehicle 2021 Nissan Titan SV

It was time to turn in the Infiniti QX-80 and we replaced it with a 2021 Nissan Titan SV with the factory tow package. For being a luxury SUV I give the Infiniti a lot of credit for pulling the camper. Having the truck now gives up the ability for us to better pack and store our gear in the back of the truck. With the Infiniti all the goods were in the back of the SUV behind the seats and you ran out of rook fast. One thing I will miss on the QX-80 is the self leveling, having the truck set the ride height automatically was a treat.

There was a substantial difference in the height of the trailer receiver hitch between both vehicles. This meant that I had to disassemble the Blue Ox hitch we use and re-calibrate it for the new vehicle. The instructions with the hitch were pretty comprehensive and it only took me two rounds of test fitting to get the height correct.

Everything went together great and the new truck pulls the camper great. The factory brake controller was a little more sensitive – so I dialed it back a little bit.

The only downside to the truck is that the tailgate won’t clear the power head for the power jack on the trailer. I may rotate it 90 degrees – but so far it really doesn’t seem to be a huge problem.
