Default Towing with 03 Odyessey

Looking at pulling a house trailer rated at 4100 lbs. The
books says 3500 lbs but I was told that this van is capible of much more.
It's not the pulling weight but rather the ability to bring it so a stop
within a certain distance?
Any advise me on this as I don't want to void any warratee. Yes I have the
transmission cooler installed by Honda.
thanks, dave

i would say if stopping is the only concern, you should have
booster brakes put in your van. My parents have a 95 windstar
and they are towing a trailer with 3000lbs, up here you have
to have the brake booster by law.

Its that little box that hooks up to the trailer brakes, costs
about $100 to have installed at any trailer shop.

If stopping is the issue you are not going to address it with anything you
can do to the van. What you can do is use a trailer with electric brakes so
the van braking system is not over-loaded. Not sure, but I'll bet that is a
helluva lot more than $100.
