Towing X-Star vs X-10

We just sold our 2008 X-Star and decided we want something easier to tow. How much lighter will a 2015 X-10 be compared to our 2008 X-Star? Should we wait for a late model X2? We live in ND and have friends and family on lakes in MN and MT and plan on visiting both multiple times a year. Tow vehicle is 2011 Nissan Titan. Thanks

Can't do the compare but my x10 seems to be easy to tow. It is a great boat - I wouldn't go x2 if u have the option of the x10

Lol. Nailed it

That being said a quick google search shows the x10 at 4400 lbs the newer x2 at 4300 lbs and your Xstar at 4200 lbs
The newer trailer may tow a bit better. All in all probably very similar.

In my opinion a titan tows pretty nice.

Ya I seen the weights on the searches and was not sure how accurate they were. I pulled a 2011 X2 once and it pulled a lot easier than our Star. Thank you tho.

But then you'd still have to buy a new tow rig.. because it still weighs more than your current boat lol

I hear the new fords with half a lift kit are cheap? Maybe even could find some discontinued white wheels on clearance to really finish it off.
