Nissan X-Trail towing load

9 February 2012

What would be the safest towing load for my 2002 Nissan X-Trail auto 2.5, and what would be the best/safest towing set up?

Gordon McCarthy

Nissan rated the X-Trail to tow 2000 kg with trailer brakes, so you should be able to safely tow up to that weight. Remember, that's the total weight, including whatever gear you carry in the trailer. X-  Trail owners swear by Hayman-Reece load leveling bars.
