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.

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.

At the beginning of this camping season we upgraded our camper. We went from a folding trailer (Trailmanor 3023) to a full size 30' trailer (Surveyor). We have been towing the Trailmanor for two years with just a wdh we never had any problems.
When we first picked up the Surveyor the first thing we notice was how much it was swaying on a 45 mph zone. When we got home I knew that we need to upgrade our hitch. After reading most of the reviews on this site the decision was made. We need to invest the money to keep our family safe. I contacted Sean via email and he responded right away with a recommendation. We got the one with the 1400lbs bars. We have been on 4 camping trips so far this year. The last trip was a 500 miles round trip to the beach. After we got home I asked my kids if they noticed any difference between towing the bigger camper compare to the smaller Trailmanor, they asked me if that was a trick question because it felt the same.
After hearing so many people talk about the white knuckle experiences on the highway when a tractor trailer was passing them I was still a little concern when the first few trucks passed us on the highway, but after they went by I realized that we stayed right inline, it was no different that pulling the smaller trailer.
One thing I wish is that our camper be little higher. The Surveyor is lower than most campers so the when going over a speed bump we need to go supper slow so that the bars don't hit the ground. People in the campgrounds always stop when they see that I am towing a 30' trailer with a Dodge Durango. They can't believe that such a short wheel base vehicle can tow safely with no sway. I always point out to the hitch and give all the credit to the ProPride.

My friend and I each just bought 3P hitches to put on his 25’ Airstream and my 26’ KZ Spree. This company and specifically, Sean, were unbelievable to work with pre-sales, during installation, and post-first 3P trip. Sean is always accessible by phone and directed us clearly through the whole process of purchase and installation.
My wife and I recently were on a long trip on I-81 (tractor trailer alley!) with our original weight distribution hitch and spent most of my time looking in the side view mirror for tractor trailers and buses approaching us on my rear hip and then white knuckling through the experience. Once we switched to the 3P hitch, that whole issue is now in the past! My friend is equally satisfied with the entire experience dealing with Sean and with complete product satisfaction.
Best decision we’ve made for our travel trailers and will never return to a conventional hitch and weight distribution system!

I bought my ProPride in the Spring of 2009 when I bought my trailer. We take 5 or 6 camping trips each season. When a semi truck passes, it is no different than when driving without the trailer, just a gentle press to the side as the semi's air dam passes. Gusty wind causes no problem.
I had a blow out at 62 MPH on I-25 just North of Walsenburg Colorado. My Wife and I heard a loud bang followed by loud scrapping. I looked in my passenger side rear view mirror and saw items from our kitchen cabinets falling out and bouncing down the road from the hole in the floor of our trailer. There was absolutely no pulling or sway from the trailer even though we were dragging an axle on the highway at 62 MPH. I was on an overpass and had to drive another quarter mile to have room to pull over. I gently applied the brakes and pulled over. Nothing felt different during the emergency. No pull. No sway. No problem controlling the tow vehicle or trailer. The only reason we knew there was a problem was the loud bang and the loud scrapping noise.
We were next to the guard rail on an overpass when the passenger tire completely separated. What would have happened, what could have happened, if I had decide to save money on my hitch? If the trailer had pulled us to the right we might have tipped over the guard rail and fallen off the overpass or at least severely damaged our vehicle and trailer sliding along the guard rail. Thanks to ProPride, that didn't happen.
My wife is comfortable towing because it feels no different than just driving. I am so glad I spent the money to get the best hitch on the market today. It is worth every penny, I know from my experience. If you are on the fence, learn from my experience. Get a ProPride today! Thank you ProPride. Thank you Sean for making a top quality product and for all your help.
