Now I look forward to being a part of the community Once we find one that will work for the family, is labeled correctly and be able to be towed with current vehicle (2014 Jeep Geand Cherokee Overland V8 5.7L HEMI).

The effort spent now will definitely pay off once we take one home.
Good luck with your search!
IMHO, you would do well to visit the scales and get your current weight. Comparing that to the Front/Rear GAWR for your vehicle will give you a much clearer picture than looking at the Max Towing numbers.
The difference between the Rear GAWR and the rear axle weight from the scale is how much cargo you can add to the rear which is where most of the tongue weight winds up. Divide that cargo number by 0.15 (15%) and you will have a decent idea of the MAXIMUM TT weight you can tow. In my experience you will overload the rear axle before you get to the Max Towing number.

Thanks for answering back...talk soon!

We used a WDH with the Pilot with no issues.

Happy Camping!

So many people with thoughts and input about trailers, towing etc which is really great...wonder what we used to do before the Internet?? Not worth thinking about.
Would not give the WDH a second thought had Honda not recommend it.....still on the fence, think I will give it a try for a couple of trips and see how it goes.

Thanks for the reply.
