Look at the tag on the door/door post and see what is written there. It should tell you what the truck is rated for.

Much depends on where you are pulling too. One hour to two hour trips you may be fine, but that V-6 will not be enough to pull through large hills and mountains.
As mentioned what are the TV specs?

That car has a very short wheelbase for towing a 24' trailer.

Another thing to consider is you mention that the camper is 4230lbs. If that is a dry weight you can probably easily add a thousand pounds to that by the time you add propane, batteries, food, clothes, accessories, chairs, tables, and all the other camping stuff you take with you. Our 240BH has a dry weight of 5136lbs and a 550lb tongue weight, but when its fully loaded out ready to go camping it scales out at about 6900lbs with a tongue weight of 850lbs. I think you will find that you are going to run out of payload on your pathfinder long before you hit the "towing" capacity too. There are many factors that play into what you should and should not tow on paper. Lot's of people go above and beyond what the paper says our trucks are capable of everyday so in the end it boils down to what you are comfortable with doing unless you are severely overloaded to the point of being a danger to others.
