I was very tempted to get the Odyssey to replace the VW TDI being recalled/ bought back, but we looked around and Connie test drove all of the vans and we decided on the 2016 Town and Country. We got a used one with 7800 miles that was on a guaranteed depreciation plan with Hertz in Orlando.
This van had the running gear, heavy duty radiator, electrical
system and transmission cooler, but not the hitch and wiring.
I found a deal the hitch and harness for about $225 OEM.
The thing I like is the stow and go seating that drops all of the seats below the floor and a sheet of 4 x 8 plywood or the moral equivalent will slide right in.
Mileage is not quite as good, but we get 28 mpg on the highway with me driving. of course with lead foot Connie driving it is less.
We are hoping we will be as pleased as you are with your Honda, we will see.
I am also looking at the Camco EAZ Lift R3 Recurve weight
distributing hitch rated 400 lbs. It is hard to get one with the 2" ball as they are not commonly stocked.
The T & C is rated 1800 lbs for straight ball pull and 3500 lbs with the weight
While this is in the data with the hitch it is not spelled out in the owners manual, just the 3500 lb rating and 400 lb ball weight
