We have a '99 Odyssey (150,000 miles) and it tows our canoe/kayak trailer without any problems. The trailer weighs only about 500 lbs. and we probably haven't loaded it down with more than about another 400 lbs. or so. Have carried two tandem canoes, a cataraft frame, and a deflated 14' raft on the trailer, with the cataraft tubes, dry box, cooler, and gear in the van with two of us, going down the Interstate at 75-80 mph without it feeling like it was straining. I keep wanting to get rid of the van, but it keeps doing everything I want it to do (except for having higher ground clearance). Have shuttled nine people with nine kayaks on the trailer for a short distance. Other than ground clearance and the lack of all-wheel drive, the Odyssey has everything I ever need. Except, of course, the coolness factor.
