We love our 184BH. The TV problem isn't really an issue with sitting it on the counter. We can put it away pretty easy.

Very nice TV solution for the 184BH! Love it!

If someone could share experience towing the 184BH and 154BH with a minivan, I would like to read your comments. We do some 500-600 miles trips in the summer, so towability is a concern for us. Thank you!

If you minivan's engine is anywhere near 175 HP I would think you'll be fine. My Ram has the smaller engine and towing is great. Also I take into account that the motor has over 170k miles on it so the actual HP is less than when it was new.

I have an old 15" LCD TV that I've been using in mine, but it has no digital tuner so I have to always tote that box with it also, which sucks because the TV has a 12V input in addition to AC power. I think an under the counter TV is a great idea!

Is there a mount that fits nicely above the counter in our kitchens? I found this but not sure if it latches for travel:

We tow the 184bh with a minivan. About 6 trips up steep mountain roads with no issues at all. Here is my thread. Hope it helps.

I also mounted a 24" tv on the wall in the same spot as xkuzme1. We used the iPod to watch movies.

I pull my 184 with a Jeep Wrangler (2008 Unlimited) with a 3.8 liter V6. I pulled it straight over the Rockies at 11,000 feet. Preformed flawlessly!

Thanks for the replies! It seems that our Odyssey will work just fine with these. We finaly went with the 154BH to play it safe and love the floorplan too. Can't wait to have it next week! ...but will have to wait until spring to go camping, snow is comming real soon here! Plenty of time to plan next year upcoming trips!

The Thick: Do you use WDH with your Odyssey?

We did about 6 trips without WDH. There was a slight squat in the rear but it handled just fine. I just recently installed a lightweight WDH from reese. It drives the same but completely eliminated the squat in the rear. It's more of a pain to hook up but i think it was worth it. Congrats on the purchase!
