I bought a Honda Ridgeline RTL last week to tow my 2001 19-ft Airstream Bambi. Yesterday I got the time to setup the hitch (Blue Ox BX2004 weight distributing) and the brake controller (Prodigy). The first day's results look good.

Ridgeline handles very nicely with this 4700lb trailer in tow on highway and on rough roads. Acceleration seems good considering the load and stopping is predictable. In the sand and on sand-covered tarmac sloped driveway the traction control worked very well, moving right into 4WD to pull up a 15 deg slope with little trouble.


Anyone have experience towing with a Ridgeline yet?

probably a bit too early.

How do you like the truck so far? what are the specs as far as towing?
