Hi: All... White certainly seems to stay cleaner longer, but does show the rust when it finally breaks out in blemishes. Ya still gotta keep up the wax n wash to keep that fresh face!!!
I can't wait for spring to get the trailer out 'n rollin'

Hey Alf S.,

Where did you mount the brake controller in your new Nissan?

I just recently found a fiberglass trailer. Now I need to get my Frontier ready to tow it. I bought a Tekonsha P3 brake controller and want to get it get it mounted next weekend. Looks like it will be "Plug N Play" once I get it mounted.

Just wondering if you found a good place to mount one.

Thanks,
Dale - Az

Hi: Dale AZ... Our Husky brake controller is mounted right to the left of the 4X4 control switch. My RV. tech. wanted it there as at least one screw of the mounting plate is in the metal frame under the dash. It's real close to my leg and an easy reach for the panic button. I have it on good authority that under the 4X4 switch is OK but my tech. didn't want to be responsible for hitting some hidden wires...and I can't blame him!!!

Thanks Alf S. I was thinking about either where you mounted yours or maybe even above the left knee. I appreciate the input.

We have an '09 crew cab. It appears they only come in white! Lots of power, nice ride. Our only complaint, you can't buy a roof rack for a canoe. Go figure. Raz

Hi: P. Raz... My only complaint was white has only one colour interior...GREY. To get a beige interior I'd have to get a red truck!!! Go figure.

I use my Frontier as a work truck and I have a tan interior and it really shows stains. I wish mine had a gray interior. If you did not get the fabric treatment, Wally World sells Soctchguard in a spray can in the auto dept. I recommend spraying the seats before you get any stains on them.

When I bought my 2010, there was the same truck on the lot with a beige interior. I wanted it because I think the beige looks nice, however it was sold just hours earlier. So I took the exact same model with the steel grey interior. I think it looks good too.

I see on the Nissan site they still offer white/beige on the 2011 models.

Maybe a salesman just told you that because all they had was grey?

Hi: Eddie Longest... What I did for the beige interior on my VW. New Beetle was get two inexpensive bath sheets and get my wife to make two buttonholes at the end for the head restraints to fit thru. Then tuck them in at the base of the seat back to hold them in place. They didn't interfere with the seat back air bags and could be removed to the washing machine when dirty.

Hi: Dale AZ... At Nissan Canada only Carmine Red or Navy Blue are avail. with Beige cloth all other colours are Steel Grey only!!! SHEESH It's certainly clear that the whole of Canada represents less than 10% of U.S.vehicle sales!!! There's more Californians than Canadians!!!

OHHH shoot. I never thought about Canada being different in options for these trucks. That's a bummer.

Like I said I like the beige interior too, but ended up with the steel grey. I like it though as its still fairly light colored. I don't like real dark interiors.

Hi: Dale AZ..."I don't like real dark interiors". I'm real used to the dark by now. I'm kept there most of the time!!! That's a very nice trailer you've got. Love to see some combo pic's.
