I did not mean to imply that I had experience with lightening of the front axle
of the Odyssey by increasing the tongue weight. I did mean to suggest that we haven't seen any problem with our 7-8% tongue weight.
I'm certain we could go to a higher tongue weight and the Odyssey would handle it.
We have driven the Cabot trail a couple of times without any issue, a really nice trip. There are so many of these wonderful places.
We have decided to head up that way this spring, returning to Newfoundland. This usually gives us a little time in Nova Scotia. As we age in our travels we tend to stop at favorite places, partially because we like than but also because it triggers memories of extended trips, admittedly there is comfort in the familiar. (Already looking forward to McGregor's in Pictou and the Clucking Chicken on the Cabot Trail).
