I owned a 2008 Ridgeline before we moved up to a 2017 Ridgeline and I can say that you must have one exceptional 2009 to get the fuel mileage that you get. Myself and three other friends who own...

Guys don't worry, this Ridgeline is just what I have now to pull the Casita, if we decide in the future to upgrade to the Oliver, I'm sure the 3/4 ton pickup will also be included in the upgrade. I'm...

Remember the Ridgeline has a two way tailgate, you can open it like a door and get it half way open when hooked to the Casita, thus giving me access to the trunk in the bed with no problems. For me...

We try to maintain 65 mph when towing the Casita, at times we may creep up to 70 and then down to 60, but that's probably because I don't use my cruse control and my foot tends to wander on the...
