I am planning to tow a 19 foot caravan around Australia for two to three years and am thinking of the new Nissan 3.0litre turbo Nissan Patrol ST, Does anybody have any experience with the towing abilities of this vehicle. I have owned Toyota 4 Runners for the last 11 years and driven through the Kimberly's, Mitchel plateu, Bungle Bungles, Kakadu and Litchfield areas towing a camper trailer with no problems. Also has anybody any info on the 4.2 litre turbo replacement by Nissan supposedly due out this year.

Hi Denis,

Whilst I don't tow a 19' caravan I do tow a camping trailer with a 3.0Lt Turbo patrol. I have found it excellent. Fuel economy doesn't suffer too greatly with my setup but I would predict a different story with a caravan. I think as loing as you were sensible and not looking at getting to places in an extreme hurry then you would be happy with the 3 litre.

Regards and good luck,
