nissan altima towing 3 bike trailer

I just picked up a trailer from a buddy, it's a pretty nice enclosed fiberglass trailer. Itís not huge maybe about 6x12. Has a drive up ramp as a back door and a side door. Any way in hell I can tow this using my better halfs altima. It's a 98 stickshift. It's rated at 1000 pounds. I know this is going to be more but has anyone done it? Maybe I can stick and extra oil cooler on it. I have a 98 eclipse turbo and that doesnít even have a towing capacity. I can so see the front wheels on it just spinning and the car sliding down a hill. And I just don't want to buy a truck. I like my car. I also have an old (1990 with 80,000 miles) town car that Iím sure would tow no problem but I donít trust that thing for a second.

I honestly wouldn't chance it. I used my sister's v6 explorer with a 3500 tow rating to tow 2500lbs of stuff (including trailer) and i've got some nice engine tick now

I think you should either buy a truck or sell the trailer to me

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
