I've searched the forum and couldn't really find what I was looking for. If this information is already on the forum, please point me in the correct direction.

We have a 2005 Honda Odyssey EX. I installed a Hidden Hitch trailer hitch. Here's the link - http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hitch/Honda/Odyssey/2005/87479.html?vehicleid=2005201302

According to Hidden Hitch and the sticker on the hitch, this is a weight distributing hitch up to 5000 pounds.

We are interested in a 17 foot Casita travel trailer.

1 - Can we tow this with our Odyssey?

2 - What else would we need to do to the Odyssey to make it ready to tow the Casita? I'm looking for an ordered list of things I need to start working on.

3 - Are there any drawbacks to towing with the Odyssey?

This is all new to me. I stayed in a camper a lot as a kid and want my kids to experience the same thing.

Thanks in advance for the help.

There are several threads on towing with 05's that will show up in a search or two...Lots of comments about handling, capability, performance as well as the utility and need for AT and PS coolers with any hitch installation.

If you could provide me with some of the correct search words, I'll be glad to look. I didn't find what I was looking for when I searched. Thanks

search the poster named Bigfoot, and search "towing", "travel trailer", ATF cooler, PS cooler, hitch installation, brake controller & installation
i've towed a 3500lb boat with my '06 but not often, pulls up a ramp strong
