Click the arrow for a short video on how the 3P eliminates sway.
The ProPride 3P hitch is the most advanced trailer sway control hitch available for your towing needs. Jim Hensley, the man who revolutionized hitch performance with his old design, has improved and enhanced his new design for your extraordinary towing experience. With easy installation and use you'll experience towing stability and safety unmatched by any hitch available.
The ProPride 3P main unit consists of two 3/4" thick links that project the pivot point of the trailer forward to near the rear axle of your tow vehicle. By not allowing the trailer to pivot side-to-side on the ball trailer sway is eliminated.
The ProPride Yoke keeps the main unit hitch ball from pivoting in the trailer coupler which would allow the trailer to sway.
Heavy duty weight distribution jacks allow you to distribute your tongue weight with precision and ease.
The 3P adjustable hitch bar is designed for any tow vehicle and trailer combination now and in the future. It includes a bar tilt feature to compensate for hitch receivers that are not parallel to the ground. This tilt allows more efficient weight distribution for varying hitch receivers.

This hitch is everything it is reported to be! Big trucks don't bother us now! I am very glad we purchased the ProPride 3P hitch. Installation was a little challenging due to the location of the propane tanks and the break-away switch on the trailer but that only slowed me down a little. The directions provided were complete and clear and you have to follow the order of steps or you will back up and do them correctly the second time. Thanks to Sean for his discussion with us. He did not try to sell anything just answered questions and provided factual information. Great hitch; great company to do business with.

We bought a ProPride for use with our 28 foot Airstream, towing with a GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. The hitch was installed by our Airstream dealer. True to its promises, the ProPride makes being passed by a semi in the adjacent lane into a complete non-event. The initial tension bar setting made by our Airstream dealer was a little "bouncy" but, as he suggested, adding a bit more tension brought it under control. We have heard stories of people having difficulty hitching up. On our first trip, we hitched up three times, in three different locations, with no difficulties. Hitching up is a 5-minute operation. This is an expensive product but, for us, it has delivered 100% on its promises.

Finally getting around to write a review, something I don't usually do as I buy a product and expect to do as advertised.
First let me tell you what I have, I own a Ram 1500 (yeah I know low payload numbers) and a 29 ft Kodiak TT. After purchasing the two I soon realized that I was pushing the payload limits mind you never over but near. Went on the web and came across Airstream forum and so much was talked about the ProPride that I started to read more and more about how people were very satisfied. Soon after, I called and email Sean about my set-up and came to the conclusion that that Propride was for me as I didn't need the recommended 13-15% tongue weight to 'help' control sway, even though 10-12% is ok but being at 10% wasn't enough to control sway properly needed more TW! I now can be at minimum of 10% and with the Propride 'eliminate' sway altogether.
So far went on two trips using the Propride first trip fairly windy and trucks passing by No sway! At first I started preparing with two hands on the wheel ready to counter steer when trucks passed then realized I didn't have to, it took a few times before I broke the habit of counter steering.
Now I can drive with confidence knowing my family and I are safe and not dread each time I encountered cross winds and trucks.
Thanks Sean and the Propride team for an excellent product and helping me get my order in time.

After owning 2 major brand WD units and just not being super happy with the results. I read that there was a better hitch but was scared by the price. I finally bit the bullet and from what I can tell there are no regrets. There is no more trailer sway or suck in when a truck passes. Trust what you read in the reviews and safety for the family can't have a price.
True one of the hitch brands I ran did a good job and most people say they are great. All I can say is they don't know what great is until they tow with a Propride. What you thought was a great tow was in reality just acceptable.

I recently installed the ProPride 3P 1400 on my Grand Design Reflection travel trailer. After reading the instructions several times it was not a big job to install. I only had one problem as I inadvertent had the receiver upside down. The torsion bars were only about 3 inches off the ground. I called Sean and he asked me my hitch height and trailer height and what height did I set the receiver on. I told him the numbers and he told me no big deal just turn the receiver over. I did this and it all worked fine. I have not taken it for a test run yet as I need the extension kit which is on order. I plan on taking a 800 mile trip shortly and I am confident that it will perform as advertised and sure beat the devil out of the Equalizer I had. That was a nightmare as I towed over 2500 miles with white knuckles. Never do that again. I thank Sean for a quality made product and have every confidence it will perform as advertised.

The installation was about 3 hours spread over a week or so. I pulled with the hitch over the weekend in heavy winds thru several canyons with wind socks pointing straight out. I felt only a slight push with No trailer sway at all.
I tow with a GMC Sierra All Terrain, 6.2L engine, crew cab. My trailer is made by KZ, 26 foot box Spree, Kitchen in the back.
The Equalizer Hitch that came with my trailer is no match for the ProPride 3P. Great investment in my family's safety.

This is my second ProPride. This one is on a 2015 Airstream Classic. Setup was easy, did the install myself. Only issue was I needed shorter set bolts for the the jacks, supplied bolts were to long. Battery box interfered and changed to 2.5" bolts and remainder of setup was fine.
It was easy to dial in the jack adjustment. Checked the setup by doing a couple of passes over the truck stop CAT scales and ballpark settings were spot on.
Tows like the trailer is welded to the back of my GMC Sierra 2500 Duramax.
If you want the best and only buy one time then the 3P from ProPride is the WD Hitch to buy.

First trailer, first hitch. I figured I'd learn from others, research as much as I could and go with the best. This brought me to the ProPride 3P hitch. Installation was very straightforward and easy if you have any kind of mechanical inclination, it took me a very comfortable 5 hours (including breaking for lunch). Hitching and unhitching is a bit of a learning curve, but once you've done it a few times, it's quite easy. I have only towed it around town, but I made sure to take it on the freeway on a windy day where there were gusts up to 90 Km/h (Approx. 56 MPH for my American friends). It towed exactly as advertised. For those of you who don't want to put a price on your family's safety. this is the hitch for you.

So I did a ton of research on hitches for about 2 months. What I really looked for where people who had say the equalizer hitch and then went to the propride hitch. People raved about how different they were. Sean's customer service is above and beyond and we are very appreciative on this. To bad other companies don't take a page from Sean's book. We drove our camper home last night with the new hitch and it was great. It did take some time to get used to how to unhook the hitch but we got it and learned the trick. We are very satisfied we made this choice. Thank you Sean for your help.

Before we purchased our first Airstream, we researched everything including the hitch system. We pulled our new (to us) unit 750 miles home using a hitch that came with the trailer, and knew that we wanted to get something better. We ordered a ProPride, pulled with it for several thousand miles and can't say enough good about it, but the best way to describe it is "you don't feel wore out after a day of pulling". We just purchased a new Airstream, and ordered a new ProPride for it.
