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.

After many unsuccessful tries with our previous WD hitch by our dealer and myself I knew there had to be something better to control the sway and allow better control. Found Sean and he went out of way to make sure I had exactly what I needed and was available for questions during installation and after. I was very hopeful the 3P would help my sway issues else my family camping trips were going to be limited to within a few miles of out house. Since installation we have made a few trips and I can honestly say the 3P not only "helped" with the sway, it eliminated it all together. It has given me back the confidence to tow and the control I was wanting. Thanks to ProPride we are enjoying adventures I would have otherwise not attempted. Great American made product that does exactly what it says it will. I would recommend the ProPride 3P to anyone towing a trailer and if you your on the fence on whether to buy one or not, ask Sean for my number and i will be happy to tell you about all the great things the 3P will provide.

I initially had my ProPride installed by the RV dealer with the purchase of a new trailer (27'). Leaving the dealership, the trailer towed OK, but was not as stable as I expected. Once at the RV park, I reviewed the hitch installation instructions myself and re-worked the hitch accordingly (the instructions are great!). I found several issues with the original install and corrected them -- what a difference towing on our next trip! Now, there is no sway at all and the rig tows great! I have towed many trailers and this ProPride is easily the best hitch I have ever used. My experience clearly indicates that setup matters quite a bit and that if the instructions are followed, a great towing experience will result.

We took our first trip with the Pro Pride hitch.
Absolutely no sway. We cross Kansas on I-70 where the wind is always blowing either north or south. I was completely relaxed, no white knuckle driving. It was amazing. No holding on with both hands and fighting as a simi rolls by me.
Pricey? Yes. Worth every penny? Yes. What is your family's safety worth?
Thanks to Sean and the Pro Pride team for an amazing product.

I have a PP3P hitch and just drove 1200 miles to/from Eagan, Mn to Custer SD, 800 of those miles in at least 20 mph head/crosswinds and never once did my sway alert go off. Before the trip, with an Equal-i-zer, it went off 3 times in a 30 mile trip in much lesser winds.
I cannot recommend it more highly.

First I would like to thank Sean and his team for their patients with my almost every day call to check the status of my order. Unit final arrived with a personnal call from Sean to apologize for the delay. Installed over 2 of the hotest days in Florida. The test drive was on a 35 MPH windy day and when my copilot remarks about the improved ride you know that Sean has got it right. We leave for our 2500 mile trip north 8/2/2016 and will leave a follow up somewhere during the trip. Thanks again, Hank & Juli Parsons, Florida

I had truly scary incident while towing my travel trailer to the beach last year. After I returned I related the story to a service tech at my local RV place. He suggested that I look into getting a Hensley hitch. After some research and a few more white-knuckle driving experiences I settled on the Pro Pride 3P. However, it took me over a year to actually buy the hitch. The biggest reason for my hesitation was the cost of the hitch.
Sean was more than helpful throughout the whole purchase process. He quickly responded to all of my emails no matter what day or time I sent them. During installation he went above and beyond even texting me diagrams of how to set things up. Installation took me a little over 5 hours, but if I was to have to install it again I could dramatically reduce that time.
We just returned from our first trip with the 3P and I have to say, “Why did I wait so long?” I no longer tense up when I see a tractor trailer rig approaching. The trailer never once felt uncomfortable during the whole trip. My trip was only a total of around 500 miles, but when you are white-knuckling it that is a long ride.
The hitch does everything they say it does and it does it well. If you have any concerns about the safety of your current hitch set up and you are considering buying a Pro Pride 3P. Go ahead and pull the trigger. I can definitely say that it was money well spent.

I'm driving a Tundra pulling a 32' hitch-to-bumper toy hauler 8500 lbs loaded. The Tundra has a 10000 lb. towing rating, so I figured that it would be OK when we purchased the trailer. Unfortunately with my initial towing experiences that wasn't the case. I was using the Blue Ox sway Pro and the trailer was swaying quite a bit. It was so bad that with crosswinds or large trucks passing the truck's stability control would keep kicking in whenever I got close to 65MPH (decelerates and brakes automatically).
I spent a lot of time making adjustments to the Sway Pro and even went to heavier spring bars. More tongue weight might have helped but 13% was my limit as verified by a the scales at a truck stop so I couldn't go heavier on the tongue or I'd exceed the Tundra's weight ratings. It was a real white knuckle driving experience, so bad that we seriously considered selling the trailer a month after we got it and just taking the depreciation loss as a lesson learned.
Before giving up on the trailer we decided to try a ProPride based on all of the favorable reviews appearing on the 'net. I installed it myself in about five hours with a lot of that time spent relocating the propane tanks. Since there are a few bolts that need to be very tight I picked up some large sockets and a huge breaker bar at a local discount tool chain (HF) and that made the job easy.
Just got back from our first trip with the ProPride installed and the reviews are right, the 3P hitch totally changed the towing experience for the better. I was driving this past weekend in very windy weather with no sway at all. If we still had the Blue Ox I'd be lucky to go 50-55 MPH. But with the ProPride I was just cruising along at 65 MPH with no issues. I even had to keep an eye on the speedo because several times I'd be creeping up on 70 without noticing it and didn't want to go above the trailer tires max speed rating. Surprisingly a lot of the time you couldn't feel any effects from the wind. Then once in a while there would be a nudge and a small steering correction would be all that was needed. In other words if the wind started to nudge you out of your lane you'd just steer against it back into place, no back and forth like with the old hitch.
If you're on the fence about whether the ProPride really works and is worth it, my opinion is to get it and you won't be disappointed.

I have a 28’ Winnebago RV and tow with a Ram 1500. Our last weight distribution hitch included a friction anti-sway bar that when tightened to the extreme could never prevent the suction effect of passing trucks or the noticeable sway and lateral forces to the rear of the truck in gusting wind conditions. We managed a winter trip to Florida and back watching defensively in my rear view mirror for approaching semi’s and making frequent steering corrections to avoid sharing lanes with them. Driving required a great deal more “two hands on the wheel” focus than I care for, but was manageable enough until I encountered a 40 MPH crosswind in central Illinois that resulted in the most extreme trailer sway I have ever experienced, and near loss of control! I couldn’t get off the road fast enough!
I determined to find a better option before leaving on a cross country trip to California. With 35 days of advance reservations, any sidelining delay due to wind conditions was not a good option. After extensive research and a couple phone conversations with Sean, I decided on the Propride 3P. I was impressed by the reviews and the claim that sway would be eliminated completely, although I confess to some skepticism of that claim.
Having spent most of my working years in manufacturing quality control I tend to obsess when it comes to design and workmanship. Propride met my expectations fully from the foam packaging to the components and assembly. Welding, critical to the strength of a hitch of this complexity, is of top quality!
Now, after 6,300 miles and 35 days, I have towed with the Propride in nearly every possible road, weather, and traffic condition from hairpin turns on two lane mountain roads to mountain passes and desert driving where flashing signs warned of dangerous crosswinds. I can honestly say that the Propride 3P does totally eliminate trailer sway! The strongest of cross-winds that slowed others to a crawl or off the road to wait it out caused no sway, and amazingly, no need for sudden steering correction or tense “two hands on the wheel” grip! To my delight, there is absolutely no suction effect created by passing semi’s. No more lane sharing.
I can best describe the effect of high winds as something one might feel driving a bus or a van. It can be felt, but minimally, and control is as though you are driving a single unit. In the worst case, I was unaware of the extremes of wind conditions unless I observed its’ effect on other vehicles and vegetation, or encountered crosswind warning signs. For safety alone the Propride 3P is worth every cent!
Thanks to Sean and the Propride team for an excellent product that makes our towing safe, and a pleasure! I am a believer and unsolicited salesman to RV’ers who notice my “fancy hitch” or engage in conversation about those awful winds on the road!

Just finished a 3,400 mile pull. What a difference between this time and last. No sleepless nights due to close calls. Biggest problem was remembering trailer was back there.

Everyone that tows a travel trailer has stories about there hitch. Some good and some scary. I decided to eliminate scary. I've towed trailers for 20 plus years and understand all the weight considerations that need to be done to safely tow. All this done by the numbers and we still have expireanced 3 sway incidents that went beyond white knuckle. Two differant trailers. Last time the wife said no more RVing. PROPRIDE enters the picture. It's true...NO MORE SWAY at all. What a great hitch. Installation was not hard at all if you know which end of a wrench to use. Follow directions and if you don't understand something, Sean is a phone call, Email or text away. I know this for a fact as I have done it. Hooking up is easy, review all the videos on you tube and you won't have issues.
We are now planning a trip to S. Dakota this fall and my wife said she will help with the driving (that in itself is a huge testament about this hitch). Thanks Sean for a great product and over the top service.
