Just bought a 19ft Champion and need something to pull it! I'm in the market for a truck in the $4k-$8k range that has proper towing capacity. Or, I'm willing to trade an '03 Pilot w/116k miles. Let me know if you have any options.

Tow it with your pilot. Pull a zx250 with a ridgeline and a pilot all the time. I prefer my truck but your current vehicle will do the job fine

It would put me at about 80-90% towing capacity and I'm wondering if the Pilot would last. At this point, it may be worth the risk.

Theyre a far cry from a towing monster. Compared to my duramax its a huge difference. But it does get the job done. If you're worried just pop it in 3rd to keep it out of o/d and take it easy. If your trailer doesn't have brakes get some on it and you should be fine.

It does have brakes and I am just a mile from the bridge. Probably not a bad solution until I find something more long term. I guess I'll go pop a hitch on the ol' Pilot.

Apparently trucks with 70k-90k miles are a hot commodity.
