This 2000 Honda Odyssey has been a delight to tow. Easy hookup Stowmaster 5000. Will sell w/out towbar if you already have your own. If you want me to deliver we can most likely arrange that, and if you need help I can get your lights set up.

You probably already know that Hondas make the only easily towable automatic transmission vehicles (AFAIK). The factory recommended procedure is simple: before towing and once every 8 hours shift the transmission from N to R to D and back to N, let it run 3 minutes, and you're done! No troublesome driveshaft disconnects, no removing the driveshaft (as if that were even practical on a front wheel drive), no trailer to muscle around or find a spot for, no auxiliary lube pumps. Park the Mothership at the exclusive WalMart campground and five minutes later you're unhooked and headed downtown to the museum or to visit your kids in that residential area where the Big RV won't fit.

The Odyssey has low miles (127k), runs beautifully--no check engine light on, power everything, cold air conditioning, autosliding doors on both sides, the rear bench super-easily folds into the floor to make the rear like a covered pickup (you can fit 4x8 plywood sheets in there even with the middle seats still installed). There is a 7" TV screen that folds up into the ceiling and a DVD player under the driver's seat. Both work, but we never used them. It would only require connecting the already installed wires into sound. No complaints at all with the vehicle--we're only selling because we're now towing a Toyota Sunrader that affords extra space and can sleep all of us in a pinch for medium range hauls while die$el is so expensive.

Yes, these transmissions tend to go out just past the 100k mile warranty whether you're towing or not. Happened to us too, but the new transmission has only 15,000 miles on it, replaced at the Honda dealership, so you're good to go for a long time.

Currently located in South Carolina, but can probably deliver just about anywhere.

$6,000
