I believe the Ridgeline has a 5500 tow rating, where as the Pilot is only 3500.

Honda begs to differ.

Another source confirms that 3500 is the capacity, but 4500 is for boats only.

Now I will say that a TM is probably more in line with a "boat" than a normal travel trailer due to it's lower wind resistance.

I'm not familiar with the model Pilot the OP had but I agree with you that there are many different tow ratings available for different vehicles. The 4Runner varies from 3500 to 6500 as well. Without knowing the years and options we really can't comment on a vehicle's rating right?
