Congrats! I test drove one of the new gen Pathfinders, and it was nice.

After towing with it a bit, I'd be curious to know what RPMs the CVT causes the engine to run at when accelerating and when cruising (while towing). Will you let us know?

I really like the styling on the new pathfinders. It reminds me a lot of the Rogues from three or four years ago.
I think it will pull that little boler down the road like nothing is back there. You must be pretty handy to install your own brake controller.

Pathfinder 2016 First trip out last weekend stats:

Towing 1974 Boler 13, ~1500 lbs loaded, maybe 500-750lbs in vehicle
18.5 mpg hwy on trip out, 17 mpg on return (headwind)
1750 - 2000 RPM when towing on straight flat terrain

Baseline: 24 mpg highway, 1500 RPM with cruise control

Will repost once transmission gets used to the load
