Thank you for any advice you can share
" Maximum towing capacity for 4WD models is 4,500 lbs. Premium unleaded fuel is recommended when towing above 3,500 lbs. Maximum towing capacity for 2WD models is 3,500 lbs. Towing requires the addition of the Honda accessory towing kit and hitch ball. Trailer harness standard on Touring models. Consult your local Honda dealer for additional towing information."
2006 Prowler 25' TT GVWR is 7,400 or 7,500 pounds.

Other years should be similar weight.
So the 25' Prowler will severely overload your Pilot.
My 19.5' (box length), 23.5' total length Joey has a GVWR of 5,600 pounds and a wet and loaded hitch weight of about 600 pounds. That's about as light as they make normal TTs. And it's too much trailer for a Pilot.
With the Pilot for a tow vehicle, you should be looking at folding campers with GVWR less than 4,000 pounds. For example, here's one with an optional shower with a GVWR of 3,850:
