I don't have any personal experiences, but there was a bit of discussion going on in two other forums I visit. Here are the links:Richmond said:I plan to use my X-Trail (2.5 litre motor) to tow a small tent trailer (approx 1,300 lbs). Can anyone share their experiences towing any type of trailer with their X-Trail.
LOL!!!! That video's a keeper!!!dubberwithanxtrail said:In the manual for the Canadian X Trail it states a towing capacity of 2000 lbs (~907 kg). I have yet to tow my tent trailer which is ~1200 lbs, but I have hauled a small open trailer with a load of wood that was probably no heavier then 700 lbs and found that the X Trail did not struggle or disrupt the ride to much. I think trailer brake are recomended for any trailers that is over 1000 lbs (~454 kg) . I wouldn't even try hauling something that weigh's over double the rated towing capacity like 2000 kg that you said some could handle or you might end up like this guy...... http://www.stupidvideos.com/Video.asp?VideoID=784
The only engine available in Canada at this time is the QR25DE – 2.5-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with 165 HP @ 6000 rpm and 170 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. It would be nice to have the diesel engine option available for a higher towing capacity in Canada.xtratime said:The official Uk sites rates my 2.2dCi with an unbraked load of 750kgs and a braked load of 2000kgs.
