Love it so far, driveway camping tonight!
We used to have a 17Z and towed with the Honda Pilot. We used a WDH, though. I know the Pilot doesn't recommend a WDH, but towing a trailer without it would tend to put a huge tongue long on the hitch. Do you have airbags installed to keep the Pilot level during towing?
Since it was only the two of us, we used to put the bikes in the back of the Pilot -- take the front wheel off and the seatpost, and they stack up nicely with some blankets between them.
