Looking to get a Nissan Titan XD truck, but wondering what truck campers it can hold? Lance 650? Other? Thanks in advance!

The best place to start is with your GVWR on the driver’s side door jam…Next, fill the truck with fuel and all the camping goodies you’d normally take in the back seat and weigh the truck on the scales…Then add about 150# or so per passenger…Subtract the loaded vehicle weight from the GVWR, and that’s what remains…Quite honestly a majority of folks are likely somewhat over GVWR, and most have made some sort of rear suspension mod to help enhance weight characteristics, though there’s nothing practical that you can do that’ll increase GVWR…Over a time, some of us have learned the hard way to pick out the camper before choosing the truck (…dummy me now moving up to a 5500 – lol)…

By happenstance I just ran across this for some general information:
Also, know that advertised camper weights should always be viewed as suspect, as they usually don’t include things like options (including awnings), water, LPG and even batteries…

Check out Hellwigs (the sway bar Co) Titan and Lance Camper combo. It looks like the ultimate setup and the cost they quote for putting it together isn’t too outrageous,
