Why both? I've found roof rails entail a lot of work to keep stuff rain proof, decreases mpg, and lifting. wouldn't a light weight trailer fit the hauling needs better than roof rails?Hi,
I would like a tow hitch on the Odyssey I am considering purchasing. I have gotten mixed answers from the dealers. I will not tow often, but may tow a boat/trailer 2-3x a year that is around 3500 lbs. Is there any difference aside from aesthetics and the cooling with having an OEM vs aftermarket tow hitch (such as install at Uhaul)? The OEM Honda is anywhere from $900-$1500 vs Uhaul, which is around $300. What have others done?
Same question about roof rails. Should I get them installed at Honda or do it myself? What about the racks? I can probably easily do the racks myself, but the rails may not be as easy.
