2014 Odyssey w/ 2016 Sport '16

It's amazing how much it squats even w/ a WDH but it tows like a dream!

Although it drinks premium fuel at a pretty terrifying rate...

I'd respectfully suggest that you probably need to get a bit more aggressive with your WDH and shift a bit more weight to the front wheels; angle the hitch head back a bit and/or go up a link or two on the chains. Our set up carries quite a bit more weight than yours, and uses a similar WDH, yet we don't get that level of rear end squat. Yes, we have additional bracing on our hitch receiver but we are dealing with a much higher tongue weight.

Yes, that's a serious squat. We towed a 34' triple axle with a 2008 Odyessey and never had it down on the shocks that far.
