Also where is the best place to get pricing from, to compare?
Thank you so much. kepami3
My wife and towed an X17Z with a 2009 Honda Pilot, rated for 4500 pounds. For the most part, it was just the two of us and our mountain biking equipment. The Pilot did very well and we didn't have any issues even when we towed from NJ through the Rockies into Colorado and Utah.
That being said, we always watched our weight in the TV and the trailer. The CCC for the trailer is only about 400 pounds, so I would not recommend towing with the water tanks full. You will get between 8-12mph with the Pilot while towing. We kept the speed at 62 maximum. Also, we used a WDH and I would not recommend towing the X17Z without one.
PM me if you have any questions for me.
