I have read other posts on towing, but seem to find conflicting information and not much info about towing through the Rocky Mountains. My wife and I have decided to get back into owning a trailer (after being without for 15 years).

We have a 2008 Honda Ridgeline with a towing capacity of 5000lbs. We like the Fun Finder X’s. We are looking at the 189FDS (dry weight 3040 lbs), 210WDS (dry weight 3370), and the new 210UDS (dry weight 3570).

We live in Alberta, Canada (just north of Idaho and Montana) and plan to take trips over the Rocky Mountains to the west coast and also drive across Canada to the east coast, as well as many local trips.

We know that we can’t go by just the dry trailer weight and need to add for water, etc. Our question is will the Ridgeline struggle to tow any of the Fun Finders, especially through the mountains, or will all 3 be within the Ridgelines towing capabilities?

We would really appreciate your input.

Thanks Ahab. Nice to hear you had no problems at high altitudes. What is the dry weight and loaded weight of your Airstream? Is the dry weight similar to the 210UDS (dry weight 3570)?

kootenayridge thanks for the info. The route you have travelled sounds similar to one of the trips we are planning (only in reverse).
Did you have to gear down many times through the mountains? For interests sake what type of gas mileage did you get (or km per litre)?
