    Took the ‘21 Rtle to the beach with our ‘19 rockwood hw296 a couple weekends ago. Dry weight 3700#’s. Loaded I guessed around 4250#’s. Did great, about 15mpg (mostly highway speed 65-70mph) and brake controller had me confident in the safety of the whole rig. The beach we camped on had a soft...

    My wife and I towed a minimally loaded 4500 camper for 3800 miles over 34 days from North Carolina to Maine and back with a 2020 Honda Ridgeline RTL AWD. The RL had no difficulty towing using a Camco load distribution hitch with sway control. I could easily go 65-70 miles per hour on level...

    We are new to the blog. We own a 2020 Honda Ridgeline AWD RTLE. We recently picked up a 17 ft travel trailer in Sumas, Washington and towed it back to Sarasota, FL. We had never towed anything previously. A few days after picking up the trailer, we weighed the truck and traier on a CAT scale...

    Hello everyone, I am soon getting a 2022 Ridgeline Sport and am researching some overlanding mods. I was wondering of any issues caused by the skid plates (especially the rear diff skid plate). The front skid plate has cutouts for cooling, but the rear diff skid plate doesn't. Does this cause...

    Specs on the 2022 Jay Feather Micro 166FBS. Seems like a really great trailer that fits the under the towing and payload limits, but I'm wanting to triple check before investigating any further. Thanks for any and all help...

    hello all, I have begun looking into getting a travel trailer and have seen on my forums and sites that the manufacturer's listed towing capacity may not be completely accurate so I am wanting to hear from y'all. I have a 2019 ridgeline sport and have included some of the manufacturer's listed...

    Hey everyone, So I bought a pop up camper recently and would like to install the 7-wire trailer harness on my ‘08 RL in order to hook up the trailer brakes. My RL has the 4-wire connection at the hitch already installed. I’ve been scanning some of these threads and it seems that buying the OEM...

  9. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    I recently moved from Denver to Orlando and had the decision to ship my second car, buy a trailer and tow it, or rent a uhaul and tow it. I ended up buying a 16ft trailer and towing my FRS over 1900 miles with absolutely zero issues. I upgraded my brakes (pads and rotors) to the Z36 Powerstop...

    I was looking at the new rear exhaust, in my Gen 1, I can just barely avoid getting the exhaust wet on the ramp. The new rear ones appear like they may have less clearance. Any real-world experience yet?

    Anyone have any experience using the Curt BetterWeigh tongue weight scale with a RL? I have a 2019 Sport AWD, and am not using a WDH. Thanks.

    I have a 2019 RTL-E which I really like. I’m considering buying a lightweight travel trailer that would likely have a towing weight of up to 4500 lbs. our intention is to use it to tour the western states (from the East coast) .and National Parks. So an extended trip of many miles and varied...

    Hi, I’m looking at buying a 19’ Airstream with GVWR of 5,000 lbs and tongue weight around 550 (with propane and H2O). Can my ‘20 Ridgeline handle it? Dealer says no problem. I prefer to stay in my Ridgeline. Thanks

    After 60k miles my 2017 ridgeline’s receiver tube hitch seems shot. When I tow my boat over a speed bump it rocks up and down and pulls on the pickup. Same ball in a smaller suv with an after market hitch has no problem. There’s 1/8 to 1/4 inch play with the ball mount in the receiver tube...

    I have read through all the posts on towing limitations and combinations. I think I fully understand the terms and limits. The examples with actual scale weights posted by some were extremely helpful in figuring out the options. We are looking at a Forest River Flagstaff Ultra-Lite 21FBRS...

    Hello all, Been visiting since I got my Ridge 2 years ago, now for my second post! As stated, I've had my Ridgeline 2 years ago - and it has been a solid performing truck. I purchased it with 65k miles on it, for a 2006 was a lucky find! I just rolled over 100k, and it has had the timing belt...

    Hi, I have searched some on here and kind of found my answer, but not quite. I'm wondering what people do when towing when it's hillly. I have a 2017 ridgeline sport AWD with 5000# towing capacity. I tow a 2400# pop up camper. I'm in Wisconsin and sometimes go across the country. Even in...

    Has anyone tow a travel trailer with the Honda Ridgeline? I'm thinking about picking up a 2014 Bullet travel trailer that is 20ft long and dry weight 3800 pound. Would this trailer be to big and heavy for the 2017 through 2019 model
  20. 2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    My 2018 Ridgeline noticeably vibrates when towing my boat between 25-35 mph. At 60 or 70 on the highway, it's fine. The boat, motor and trailer are about 2,500 pounds so capacity should not be an issue. The dealer - Honda North in Topsfield, Mass. - wants me to bring it in towing the trailer...
