help on TV for 16 ft or 19 ft
My husband and I just brought a Ridgeline, Honda (2010) 4x4; with plans on towing a 16 foot Bambi or a 19 foot Bambi. The manufacturer says the truck can pull 5,000 lbs with the tongue weight of 600 pounds. The truck is a 250 HP, 3.5 V6, the wheel base is 122 inches, GVWR 6,050 lbs, GCWR 10,085 lbs and the truck has a tow package, the truck seats 5 adults.
We know that the 16 foot Bambi is 4200 lbs and the 19 foot is 4500 lbs. Can anybody tell us if the truck can pull either one of the Bambi's comforablely with no trouble. We would be driving on mostly flat plains, but wonder if we decide to go up mountains or big hills; would the V6 engine have enough power for this. I fell in love with the Bambi and don't want to go to anything else. Anything you say would be greatly appricated. We are new to the camping scene.
We are both retired and want to enjoy traveling hopefully with a Bambi in tow.
