I have NEVER seen this before! How cool!!! Makes me wish I still had my old Beetle! I saw another video where they found one of these trailers at the back of an old scrapyard and managed to rescue it. Would love to know how that turned out!

No sure Raz.... you don't hear a lot about the Ridge towing 5er's. My bet would go on the Holden V8 car/pickup vehicle. All that G8 performance would no doubt shine through even with a small Scamp 5er attached.

Hi: All... At risk of being shot down...my take on towing with a Ridgeline is lack of wheelbase. The rear axle is to darn close to the back of the cab, at least for a 5th wheel!!!

Hmmmm.... Interesting looking, but $30,000+ for a used "kit car"??? Somehow I think that a better choice for a TV can be made. .

Yup, I bet you are right. My Nissan WB is 126". You went to the long bed with a WB of 140" to get the clearance for your Escape. The Ridgeine is only 122". It will be interesting to see what Honda does next. Raz

Another potential issue with the Ridgeline towing a 5th wheel is that it has a large lockable trunk in the bed that would have to be addressed. The spare tire is located in the trunk. I guess the spare could be relocated to the bed.
