Please send pix to Robertcook3hotmail.com
You mention the Tekonsha Prodigy Brake Controller. I assume that you use this because the camper your are pulling (pop up? box size?) has brakes.
Our camper is 10 foot box with no brakes on it.

#9 of 13 2009 Odyssey trailer hitch and light
Aug 19, 2009 (5:32 pm)
does the 2009 EXL Odyssey have a trailer light harness already on the van or does it need to be installed? What experience do people have with installing trailer hitches or getting them installed after market? Just got our Ody and want to put on a hitch for a pop up tent trailer. can this be DIY?

I added one to my 2007 EX-L and I am not a mechanic. The instructions that come with the hitch (google it) provide very good and detailed illustrations of each step. Very easy to do. The scariest part is taking off the bumper but it is amazingly light and not a big deal to remove. One person can do it but would suggest 2 people so it does not hit the ground. You may also need a second person to hold the hitch in place while you bolt it on - or do what I did and prop it up with some wood. The wiring harness is also ready to plug into the car. The biggest recommendation is to cut teh bumper conservatively. If you follow the template exactly, you will cut too much and you will see a gap b/t the hitch and the bumper. cut a few inches less and go by trial and error to fit it around the hitch. It will look cleaner.
