Hi All, my wife and I are new here and have a couple zillion questions.

First: My tow vehicle is a 2019 Nissan Frontier 4 cylinder w/manual transmission. Rated max towing is 3,500. Is my vehicle going to be adequate for the task?

Second: I am seeing a lot of people talking about lift kits? Is it safe to even take it on its maiden voyage without a lift kit installed? We have no plans to take it off road or anything like that. Would it help any if I just put 14″ rims/tires on it? and if so, what size tires do I want?

Third: Do they have any known issues like leaking, etc?

Fourth: Will I need an anti-sway bar setup? I have owned a travel trailer in the past without using one and I never exceed 55 mph when towing.

Guess that is enough for starters. Thanks in advance for any pointers  🙂 Can’t wait to take it on its first outing!

When I first bought my little whitewater I thought it looked awfully low to the ground. I asked the dealer if I could get larger tires and they said no. Larger tires would hit the well of the camper. I don’t ha e the money to put a lift kit in mine. I will just drive it carefully.

we bought a sway kit from amazon. It was less than $100. We haven’t used it yet. The only problem with it will be the backing up part. It must detached  to back & turn. I didn’t want anything heavier to add more siege than. I bought this camper bc of its weigh & ease of pulling. I am a female and this camper is so much easier than the large ones.

this is just my insight & a little experience.
