19' Escape, Honda Ridgeline

I'm curious if anyone tows a 19' Escape with a Ridgeline (mine is a 2018). By the numbers, it works, but my travels take me up and down the mountains from Kansas to northern California. On the flats, I'm pretty sure there isn't a problem - up and down the Rockies, Sierra's and Trinity Mountains - might be another issue.

Anybody have experience with this?

TIA

Hi Rick,

I am not really in the market for a new vehicle, but I enjoy researching pickups for our next tow vehicle. We currently have a Casita 17 that we tow with a midsize SUV with a V8 that is rated to tow 7,500 lbs. I am a Honda Ridgeline fan. I look forward to reading this thread as it applies to your Ridgeline and the Escape 19.

Take care,

Dean

I have a 2007 Ridgeline and I towed a 17' Boler from Vancouver to Winnipeg and back - never had a problem with anything. I do have electric brakes on the trailer. The Ridgeline will easily tow your 17' Escape - without a transmission cooler! Relax and enjoy!! Dave and Bernice the Boler

I tow a Escape 19 with. 2019 Ridgeline and it works just fine in the mountains of Oregon, you may experience a slow down with very steep grades but it’s manageable, at least you will be faster than the big trucks. The Ridgeline is a very comfortable vehicle to travel in and I highly recommend it.

Thanks Larryf. That's just the type of feedback I wanted and was hoping for. We leave tomorrow for California. Going to be a fun month (I hope!).
