Towing a Motorcycle With Our Rogue

Postby TG Mack » Wed Mar 21, 2012 5:43 pm

We are new here. We have a 2010 Rogue SL AWD. It does not have the tow package. We want to take a 650lb flat bed trailer and carry our 525lb bike down to Pensacola, FL and back. Do you think we would have any problems if we take it slow and easy? Slow start ups, slow braking 69.5mph not 80?

welcome my fellow biker friend! :)
i tow my race-bikes (two) with the rogue on a 350lb trailer and gear and it does great.
it tows easily one 450lb racebike + trailer without any hesitation. you cant even feel its there.
i have the 2008 rogue with paddle shifters so i can tow 1500lbs. two bikes add some weight and you can tell.
i use the paddle shifter to get to speed sometimes in some hilly area's i might come upon.

i custom built this trailer to harness the Pit-Bull Trailer Restraint System.

for anyone looking for more info:
this is how stable the Nissan Rogue suspension will be with a 400lb bike + 350lb trailer on 12"wheels.
