Honda Ridgeline

Does anyone pull an Airstream with a Honda Ridgeline?
I own a 1978 25' Airstream and need to know from all you experts!
Any Comments would be appreciated.

How much does the Airstream weigh, and what is the towing capacity of the Ridgeline?

We've been towing our 16' - 3500# AS with the Ridgeline. Never a problem even at 10K feet on winding roads.

I've been towing our 22' Safari Sport with our '06 Ridgeline all through the SW for the past 6 years without a hiccup. Full weight is just over 4200# with 436# on the ball. I'm afraid your 25' is just over the recommended max which is 5000#.

Actually a 1978 25' Airstream is around 4,000# unloaded and unmodified. Here's a reference from Airstream website, weigh to be sure.

It would be tight if the Ridgeline is rated for 5k and the trailer is over 4k. Add people, luggage, gas, anything else into the equation and you are probably over the 5K. Do people tow vehicles that they are overweight on without problems? Sure, but its not something I would recommend especially if you get into some sort of accident and they start asking questions afterward. Your call.

The OP hasn't been back since he posted this. Maybe he read his owner's manual, and saw where he can't use weight distribution at all with is Ridgeline, whether the trailer is within his weight capacity or not. Since the Tradewind has a pretty high tongue weight, and I am sure there is a maximum tongue weight for the Ridgeline, that should pretty much settle his question.
