I bought a Frontier to pull an Escape last year. Good tow vehicle. I've been quite happy with it, at least up until last week -- then the cabin fan started giving me problems. Not acceptable in this weather.

We'll see how the dealership deals with the problem, but after owning two Toyotas and having no issues with them aside from standard wear-and-tear (over 25 vehicle-years), I've got pretty high standards. Just having to deal with an issue is a strike against, even if the dealership handles it well.

I think white is my color of preference now. It may not be as flashy as other colors, but it is easy to match the paint, and it ages well. Not many white Fireflies though.

The first time I went to replace the cabin air filter in my '09 I discovered that Mickey and Minnie had made a nice home on top of it. They get in through the air intake which is wide open (like most vehicles) under the cowl. The filter slows them from entering the air ducts and the truck but if they chew through the filter the fan is close by.. Might be your issue?? A piece of screen over the opening solves the problem. First thing I did on the 2012. Raz

Nothing so simple, unfortunately. It's something in the electronics. The fan doesn't work at all until the truck warms up. In -20 weather, it can take 30 minutes of driving around with no heat/defrost. Then the fan starts working normally.

Nice Truck Deryk! It looks worthy to tow you and the ParkLiner on many adventures to come. Happy New Year.

Deryk, congratulations on your new TV. The Frontier really looks great with your Parkliner. Guess you won't have to be so concerned with tongue weight as your were w/your Rav4. Do you happen to need a brake controller for your Frontier?
We have an extra one that we used only 3 times.
Again , congratulations! Happy healthy New Year everyone! Betty Lou and Bev, (2 sisters from Delaware).

Yep we have a Frontier also like Raz mentioned, and really love the truck. One thing that I really like about the Frontier is its all set up for towing from the factory. I think you are going to really like towing with it, and will like it just as much not towing too.

Hey Tim how do you do for gas mileage with and without your ParkLiner?

Deryk, I usually get around 20 mpg without towing, and 16mpg towing . Now that can vary either way depending on speed, hills, etc. But I'm very pleased with my Frontier. Glad you guys brought up changing the Cabin Filter, as I'll do that before heading south next month.

Way da go Deryk!

Our last 3 TV's vehicles were Nissan's. They seem to have rock solid drive trains when used as TV's. Enjoy!

Deryk Good choice now you wont be so stressed when you arrive at your camp site. Get some good lock down method for your generator in the back of the truck. No more gas smell or the generator beating up the inside of your trailer anymore. Someone on this site stores his generator on a cart the height of his pick up bed and slides it in and out of the truck without lifting makes life easier.
I like Nissans I have a 2001 Pathfinder and its a joy to tow with. I added an external tranny cooler and do not tow on anything that isnt flat in overdrive. In its life in my possesion Fluid changes and 2 timing sensors and 1 set of front brake pads were all that were necessary maintainance.

Thanks Steve, I hope for many great adventures of stress free towing!

Actually, I shut the fuel off on the generator and run it dry and honestly, even in the summer heat there hasn't been a single smell of fuel. The gas jug though does get strapped down in the bed of my truck. I might take the trunk off the rear of my ParkLiner since I could chain it into the bed of my Frontier... but want to take her out on a windy day and see how different it feels towing with a much heavier tow vehicle...the Rav4 was kinda light weight.
