  1. As some of you may of may not know the 2017 Ridgeline is what I would call on the border line of being able to handle the Oliver Elite II. The Ridgeline is rated at 5000# tow weight and 600# tong weight. It's GVWR is 6019#, the door plate also says GVWR Front 3131# and Rear 3229 so not sure if you add the two together, or just use the 6019# figure. I guess my dilemma here is my 2017 Ridgeline only has 11,500 miles on it and I hate to trade it off so soon and with that few of miles on it. We don't overload our trailer and we carry very little water on board as boondocking is not to our liking, plus we will not have solar panels and extra batteries on board, thus cutting down weight for our style of camping. I would think with our trailer lightly loaded and what we carry in the Ridgeline including ourselves we can stay under the 6019# weight. That's why I say, we are close to the max limit, I have yet to find anyone that pulls an Oliver with a Ridgeline, but have read about some that use the Tacoma as a tow vehicle with good results. I have in the past pulled a 14' utility trailer loaded with two UTV's weighting around 4000# plus the trailer and the Ridgeline has handled it what I would call favorable conditions. I guess I could start out with the Ridgeline and it doesn't workout, I can always upgrade to a 1/2 or 3/4 ton pickup. What do you think. Trainman
