Sorry alittle bitter here.. lost my CR-v in a divorce and got stuck with the pilot.
I know, pilot cost 15K more but......
Ok pros.
Smooth ride,EXL- Nav - Nice feature, nicer heated seats, more room, has all the creature comforts... Towing within the 4500 lbs is definitely nice... do not even feel the trailer behind it.

Cons over crv
Handles like a overgrown old station wagon, non reponsive...... sucks in the gas... window sticker says 17mpg I get 15 city. perhaps better tires will help, but before I invest... gonna do home work and just sell it if I can not get it to handle better on the road..

-insurance is cheaper
-better off road, (smaller, lighter, shorter wheelbase)
-more covered cargo area, (under the picnic table)
-easier to change the cabin filter
-easier to change the tranny fluid
-split tailgate/rear window

Pilot Pros, (CRV cons):
-more front seat legroom
-seats 8, (significantly wider and a little longer)
-rides better
-more power
-tows more
-more cargo room
-rear heat/AC
-rear diff lock

Lol, I'm looking for a less costly solution. I think my parents will get it anyway. They are the ones that wanted to know.
