    For the worry worts and powerstroke

    To those who have expressed concern, I thought I would let you know that I have upgraded the Honda Accord to a Honda Ridgeline. And Yes, I'm working on getting a bigger trailer.

    What's the GVWR on your truck? The back looks to be sagging pretty good.

    The reason for sagging ,,look in the bed of the Ridgeline,, Looks the forks for fel is in the bed, plus guessing a slight dip between driveway and yard. My Odyssey can tow 3500 guessing Ridgeline is same or more

    Christy loves our Ridgeline. So much so that she stole it from me. She now uses it as her daily commute vehicle.

    The Ridgeline is rated to tow 5000 lbs. I'm not at all concerned about the photos above (from the truck's standpoint). The rear wheels are in a 'ditch' of sorts.

    That little trailer forces the OP to put more of the weight of the tractor on the tongue than would be desired.

    In any case, this is a huge step forward over the Accord.

    Here is our initial Ridgeline review

    You look just fine.👍 When you're in a dip things can look exaggerated. The wheel wells look even.

    As you said the trailer, your gonna work on.😄

    You do realize that with a larger tow vehicle and a bigger trailer to match, you could get a bigger tractor...... Just pointing that out

    Sounds like a vicious circle...get a bigger truck. ..than a bigger trailer. ..than you load more on it and it still isn't big enough. ..rinse and repeat.
