Trucks are heavy duty vehicles and have heavy strong frames designed to haul heavy loads. They are also geared for the work they are designed to do any have matching horsepower and different rear end gear ratios than the family people hauler.
Honda makes great people haulers but they have yet to produce any real trucks.
The Ridgeline is not built on a truck frame. It is a suburban wanna-be truck.
When it comes to Honda the smaller the engine and vehicle the better the result.
I recommend the Toyota products over all others. Their engineering goal is high at 300,000 miles without any major system failures. GM, Ford, Dodge care more about profit and saving money on production than long term durability.
Spend your money on proven quality. Determine the weight
of your dream travel trailer fully loaded for the road first....then select the truck with the tow rating that will pull it while having the best reviews for dependability.
No one ever accused GM of building dependable long lasting vehicles. Maybe that is why they are in and out of bankruptcy.
It is your money spend it wisely!!!
