Higher Towing Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder


The 2017 pathfinder has a towing capacity of 6000/600 lbs. C13126 hitch is rated lower. Is there a more suitable hitch? Thanks

The Draw Tite Hitch part # 76031 is a fit for your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and it has higher towing capacities at 6,000 lbs total trailer weight and 900 lbs tongue weight. This would be exactly what you are looking for. I attached an install video for more info for you to check out as well.

For trailer wiring the part # 118273 is a confirmed fit and would work well. This is a 7-way trailer wiring harness which I attached an install video for.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
