Late reply here, but we installed a receiver on our 2006 Odyssey since that's apparently the only way to go. We carry three bikes on our Hollywood Sportrider without a problem. The hitch is definitely heavy duty... 70 lbs empty, so it and three comfort bikes puts us at about half the allowed Class III tongue weight.
We have no trailer, so I didn't install the other Honda-recommended parts (tranny fluid cooler, power steering fluid cooler and air dam) since they would have added hundreds of dollars to the overall cost. If we decide to pull a trailer, we'll just add them as needed.
