  1. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    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...
  2. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    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...

    Hi all, Bought a brand new 2021 RTLE Silver Lunar Ridgeline. Loving it so far. We are looking to upgrade from our popup camper. And I'm looking for some advice. We are looking at the Wolf Pup 17JG DRY WEIGHT - 3914 lbs. Payload Capacity - 1,120 lbs. Hitch Weight - 430 lbs. GVWR - 4999 lbs...
  4. 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...
  5. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    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...
  8. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    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
  9. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    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...
  10. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    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...

  12. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    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...
  13. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    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...
  14. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    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
  15. 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...
  16. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Everyone, I'm glad to see that so many people viewed that last thread. Hopefully others found it as helpful as I did. Thanks @McChizzle! @Carsmak don't sweat the thread getting hijacked -- it happens and it's all for the better of the community. My experience today resulted in my RL feeling...
  17. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Greetings everyone. I've had my 2008 RL RTL for a few months now. I just obtained a travel trailer (camper to some people) and have encountered a frustrating situation. I could very much use your insight since I'm not finding much helpful info via Google. I read that the RTL trim came with...
  18. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Last summer, I towed an A-Frame popup with my G2 Sport (along with my wife and 2 kids!) for a 6,000 mile trip. No brake controller, no fancy DWH, and it was a breeze. The popup's weight was 2700lbs. This year, I'll be towing a 2017 Micro Minnie 1700BH which has a dry weight of 3,010 lbs. I'm...
  19. Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    I don't have any towing gear, hitch, etc. What do I need? What will it cost me? Probably rent a tow trailer from Budget or somebody. How hard will this be on RL, car and -- yeah, driver. By the way, it's a 2008 CRV. Going from Idaho to Texas soon. Prolly 1,600 miles.CRV is about 3,500...
  20. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Hi, I was looking for information into the owner manual for the towing of 500lbs+ of tongue weight. If I understand correctly I can go up to 600lbs. how about weight distribution unit. I am looking for a Rv that will have 500lbs on the tongue. Just want to make sure the setup will be ok...
