Can anyone give me some reliable advice on how well my truck will handle pulling a 24’ 4150Lbs travel trailer Grey Wolf 19SM I have a 2013 Nissian Frontier 4X4 V6, book says it can tow 6500Lbs. I will of course get brake controller and will have a weight distribution hitch with sway bars.

Toss the 4,150 number - the GVWR on the Grey Wolf 19SM is 7,522 lbs. Loaded tongue weight could be 700 - 750 lbs. So-called max tow ratings aren't what you need to worry about - you need to worry about payload (tongue weight). Don't use any published dry weights or tongue weights. Always work with GVWR. Also fill up your truck, load up your family and "stuff," and head for the nearest CAT scales. Get separate front and rear axle weights and subtract those from the ratings on the door sticker. Subtract another 75 lbs. for a WD hitch from the rear axle numbers. Only then will you know where you stand.
