Odd question does anybody know how much weight the tailgate assembly can hold? I was loading 10 foot lengths of pipe for work, with the tailgate down. Total load was close to 900lbs.

The tailgate is designed to hold a dynamic load of 300lbs. Dynamic meaning it is rated to be loaded to 300lbs and the vehicle be operated (Driven).

Re: Show/Tell us what you are haulin'

Awhile ago but took her to the Home Depot as our bigger truck was already loaded for a job. Believe it or not, it's packed with just about everything needed to insulate and enclose a front porch. The guys helping load were like "ya right.". Lol. The windows and doors and a couple other items came in the next load. It's heavier than it looks!

Re: Show/Tell us what you are haulin'

It's great to see all the cool stuff that everyone is towing. I've towed our camper numerous times. But more often I'm towing our Boy Scout Troop trailer or cargo trailer plus the precious cargo of 4 boy scouts plus all their stuff in the bed, sometimes piled high (I can't see thru the trailer anyways). My 07 Ridge performs fine and returns decent fuel economy especially when compared to other troop vehicles that get a few mpg less. My Ridge is approaching 6 years old and 105K miles and I hope to keep it going strong as it's the only vehicle I've ever owned where I didn't tire of it after 5 years or so.

Re: Show/Tell us what you are haulin'

Hauled a little over 1100 lbs. of flooring home last night, plus treads/risers for stairs, trim, some other odds and ends, myself, and with my helperr, I am sure we were right at, if not slightly over, the 1520 lb. hauling limit. Handled it like a champ. Barely even noticed it.

I've hauled a lot of stuff the last couple of weeks, as we are doing some small remodeling jobs around the house. Tile, flooring, painting, and that kind of thing. I had to run to a local lumber place to pick up a couple sheets of 1/2 in plywood. The guy who was helping me load said, "OK, do we need to put these in sideways to fit...or something like that?" I said, "Nope...there's 49" between the wheel wells, so they will slide right in". He said, "No way..." and proceeded to slide the sheets right in. He thought that was really "cool". I proceeded to give him the nickle tour and he said, "Wow, this is really nice...what is it?"

Yeah, nice job advertising, Honda.

Re: Show/Tell us what you are haulin'

Yes - the sheets of plywood and drywall slide right in. Limited to 8 footers tho. In that Home Depot load I had a bunch if 3/4" pressure treated plywood towards the bottom. That stuff is heavy but necessary to properly close in the insulation on the underside of the porch in our climate. Not the best solution, but a cheap way for folks to add enclosed spaced for a mudroom. Here's those materials put to work!
