pics!!My pilot didn't replace anything. Bought it for $300 to turn into a camper. Criteria was that it:
Was clean and not rusted out and didn't smell like an ashtray
had a lot of room
did not have many problems even though someone junked it
its sorta off road capable
and if you rip out the second and third row seats building a bed is pretty easy and very functional, I'm 6'3" and I still fit inside with another person both completely stretched out.
the way the 1st and 2nd gen pilots are built there is also alot of storage under the bed if you build it how I did.
honda also seems to build pretty dependable stuff.
so really you could say that it replaced a hotel room.
