You're recommending a trailer that will exceed the Ridgeline's towing capacity!
If the Ridgeline's towing capacity is only 5000lbs, why would you recommend a trailer that's DRY weight is already at the Ridgeline's max?

OP would never be able to tow that with a Ridgeline. I'm surprised you would even suggest it.

Thanks re "Need Advice On Buying A Travel Trailer"

I truly want to thank all of you who have responded. Lots of very good information and advice. You have really helped to educate me regarding my desire to go from a motorhome to a trailer. Since my Ridgeline is rated at only 5000 lbs, I realize that I need to downsize big time and we are okay with that. The "boss" and I don't RV as much so I feel confident that we would be able to adjust to a small trailer (now all we need is the go-ahead from Milly our 15 lb dog). At least now, thanks to this forum, I am now armed with a bit of knowledge.
Thanks again for all your help; there is strength in numbers--- Rob

Rozinbag, how about something like this Geo Pro G19FBS?

The website claims an unloaded vehicle weight of 2962# so Id think a loaded and ready to camp weight of a little over 3600#.

If you could live with downsizing that much, check around here and some Rockwood dealers to see if you can determine what it would really weigh. Figure on 600-700# above the weight on the sticker on the side of the trailer.
