Description

The ProPride 3P hitch is the most advanced trailer sway control hitch available for your towing needs. Jim Hensley hitch, the man who revolutionized hitch performance with his old Hensley Arrow hitch 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.


Details

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.

  1. GREAT PRODUCT "Worth Every Penny" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2017

    I find it easy to hook up by myself. I am still working on the exact jack height for my vehicle and load. I am towing a 30' Airstream with a QX 56 Infinity. The car handles the trailer with ease and no sway or porposing.
    I have only towed the trailer about 20 miles , but road was had some rough spots and large hill. I pulled the trailer up the hill at 60 mph and had 3 semis pass me with no sway or movement.

    Thanks to ProPride


  2. Well worth the effort. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    Installed the hitch myself to make sure I was familiar with the equipment. Follow the instructions and take your time, well worth the effort to do it yourself. Took me about 3 hours. Took my first drive with a stiff cross wind. The hitch passed with flying colours. Looking forward to some long trips on our bucket list. I tow a 32ft Surveyor with a Ram 1500 diesel. After a couple of cycles the hitch and unhitch is no issue at all. Highly recommend this hitch.


  3. New Airstream with ProPride 3P 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st May 2017

    To start, Sean is first class to deal with and fully supports his product. Highly recommend the product and the company. I purchased a new Airstream Flying Cloud 25 that I plan to tow to Alaska through Montana fly fishing across the country, hence the ProPride 3P and have not been disappointed. Easy setup and at times towing between NJ and central VA I'd forget I had a 7300 lb trailer behind me. This is the hitch rig for me for both highway and backwoods towing.


  4. complicated but worth the time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2017

    It adds a bit of time to your set-up/tear down process, but it is completely worth the time (and money). We tow a Fury 3110 toy hauler with an F150 and even with semis passing, the sway is not an issue.


  5. new experience 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2017

    We just had the new hitch installed yesterday at our dealers. First one for them, but after about 3 hours we looked good.
    Home to dealership is about 150 miles, and towing our trade to them was the usual slow, long, but uneventful trip with our 29 ft box trailer and standard hitch with wd and sway control; some really bad concrete pavement-a lot of bucking between truck and trailer.
    We left the dealer ship with a new 25 ft flying cloud, and the propride 3p connecting us, and within a mile, I was impressed!
    The ride is smooth, bucking minimal, no sway movement at all, and no noise on tight turns.
    How much change is attributable to the Airstream,and how much to the hitch, I don't know, but the trip home was a completely improved experience, and at about 10 mph avg faster!
    Thanks


  6. No More Sway 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2017

    We tow a 30 foot 2017 Jayco travel trailer with a 2016 Dodge Durango. Before we purchased and installed the ProPride 3P Hitch, our first trip on the interstate highway was very nerve racking and scary. We could not drive over 65 mph without the trailer swaying and many times had to drive under 60 because of a little cross wind. Every semi-truck that passed us caused major swaying. There were a few times we had a very close call nearly hitting a truck. After installing the ProPride 3P Hitch, the difference is amazing, like night and day. Recently drove on the interstate with approx. 15 mph cross wind with NO problems. Was able to keep up with traffic driving 70 mph, passing and being passed by semi-trucks with NO swaying. We are so happy we decided to install this amazing hitch system. Thank you ProPride for designing and building such a great product making it safer to tow our trailer.


  7. 4P. Add in Perfect to the name 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2017

    I pulled a new 34.5 OAL toyhauler first with a regular hitch and then I did the same with the 3P hitch. I took the trip in fairly high winds 15-20 down Interstate 40 and then up the famous pig trail in Arkansas. Never a wobble, never a bounce, never a fear. The trailer tracks perfectly even on curves tight enough you can read your own license plate. To top off this great product I have to say that the customer service that I have gotten from this company beats any I have received from any company I have dealt with.


  8. The effectiveness of this product cannot be overstated 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2017

    The effectiveness of this product cannot be overstated.

    I have a 2016 Toyota Sequoia and a 2016 Windjammer 35'. From the very first towing the coach was squirrelly. I added the generator onto the real of the coach and the trailer sway when passed by trucks and large vehicles was unmanageable and speeds above 55 were just downright dangerous. The sway was so bad the anti-skid mechanism on the Sequoia would activate.

    I researched and found the ProProde 3p. Of course, the price left me speechless for a day or two but after reading all of the reviews about its effectiveness and amazing service given by Sean, I decided to order.

    Immediately I wanted to know if I needed any accessories so I wrote Sean. He responded immediately and suggested the 3 piece extension kit, which it turned out I needed.

    My product arrived in about 3 days. I installed as per the instructions. It took about 3.5 hours as I was really taking my time.

    From the very first test drive it was amazing. NO SWAY AT ALL. The coach tows better, corners smoother and turns a little sharper. Amazing.

    As one review I read said, if you can in any away afford the purchase, do it. You will have amazing results.


  9. Great hitch. Learn from my mistakes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2017

    Wanted to share my experience with the Pro-Pride 3P.

    My truck: 2016 F-150 with a 3.5 L Eco Boost, 3.55 rear end, max towing package and a 145 inch wheel base. It has a curb weight of 4890 lb, towing capacity of 11,600 lb and a GCWR of 16,900. Truck is stock other than Air Lift ride control air bags.

    My trailer: 2017 Jayco 338 RETS. Dry weight 9130 lb. GVWR 11250. 40 ft from tongue to bumper. 12 ft high.

    When I bought the trailer I knew I would be pushing my truck to the maximum capabilities. I wasn't concerned about the weigh as one search of You Tube will show videos of similar trucks pulling 14k loads up steep grades without difficulty. My concern of trailer sway. With the trailer outweighing the truck better than 2:1 when fully loaded, the large surface area inherent in a TT and my short wheel base I knew sway could be a huge issue.

    After a lot of research and reading the endless debates on forums I decided the 3P was right for me. I placed my order and had boxes on my door step in just a few days.

    From this point it was a comedy of errors on my part. Being mechanically inclined I casually read the directions and got to work. Install was a breeze with simple hand tools (though I did have to borrow a torque wrench).

    (Below assumes you have a working knowledge of the hitch components)

    Because I am pushing my truck to capacity I had to apply a lot of force to the weight distribution bars to distribute weight properly. I had installed my stinger level with the ground the so force of the WB bars caused the pivoting portion of the hitch (hitch head from here on out) to be nose down. I did not notice this detail before my first test drive.

    Thinking I was good to go I took the truck and trailer for a drive. The sway was HORRIBLE. Because the hitch head was not level with the ground it wanted to ride at either extreme of its range of motion. When driving the force of the truck's forward motion kept the hitch head in the proper place but if a gust of wind hit the hitch head would move to one side then when pulled back to the center would over compensate to the opposite side because it wasn't level. This had a pendulum like effect and made the truck nearly undriveable. Additionally when turning at low speeds I heard a loud clunking coming from the hitch. (More on this later.)

    I got home from the first drive thinking the 3P was utter crap and my wife was going to kill me when I told her we needed to buy a diesel pick up. However I remembered from all the forum reading I had done all the praise heaped on Sean at ProPride for his customer service. I called, left a message and had a call back in 20 minutes. He immediately knew what the issue was and said I needed to lower the angle of my stinger so that once I applied force with the WD bars the hitch head would be level.

    I did as instructed and ran into my second problem. When coupling the truck to the trailer the hitch head must be at the same angle as the stinger. To accomplish this you raise or lower the WD bars to achieve the proper hitch head angle. In my case this was not possible. My trailer has a 6 inch frame and the ball coupler is mounted to the bottom of the frame so even using the top hole of the linkage bars and lowering the jacks all the way down I was unable to get the proper angle to hook up. I disconnected the WD bars from the linkage bars and was able to get the proper angle for coupling by manually manipulating them. I took another test drive with the hitch head riding level and all trailer sway was completely eliminated. However I still had the clunking noise coming from the hitch when making low speed turns.

    After getting home from test drive two I turned my attention to the clunking. This was when I noticed I had installed the yoke upside down. (Yes, I'm an idiot) The hitch head would knock against the upside down yoke when making turns. The damage to the yoke was significant. Fortunately the hitch head suffered only cosmetic damage. By this point it was late in the day so rather than call I emailed Sean. I told him about my problems coupling the truck and trailer as well as my yoke damage. Sean replied early the next day. He said he would make longer linkage bars to help me get the proper angle while coupling and would send out new yoke arms. He charged me only his cost for these pieces and I was thrilled.

    Again the parts arrived in a few days. I installed them and was able to hook up the truck and trailer without difficulty. There was one final piece of drama when my WD jack broke. It would turn freely without raising or lowering. A final call to Sean (which he answered immediately) and he told me I sheared a pin in the jack. Turns out using an impact gun to raise the jack is a bad idea. One trip to Lowe's and 59ยข later the problem was fixed.

    I then took a 4 hour trip to Louisiana which was my first time to use the hitch with it working as intended. As others have said the hitch does eliminate sway but it doesn't put you on rails. I was still moved around a bit by wind gusts and passing 18 wheelers but at no point did I ever feel out of control of my vehicle. I was driving on a very windy day and the best description I have is it was like minor airplane turbulence. Wind gusts would move the truck and trailer in tandem and at first it was a bit nerve wracking because I kept waiting for tail-wag-the-dog sway. But it never came. After 15-20 minutes of driving I became used to the new feeling of my vehicle towing with the 3P and it was a pleasure.

    Conclusion:

    Most of the forums I read agreed the 3P is a superior hitch to the Reese Dual Cam and Equal-i-zer. After all the 3P eliminates sway whereas the others only dampen it. The debate revolves around whether the 3P is enough better to justify the cost. Whether the 3P is worth the cost will vary depending on your tow vehicle and trailer though if you have the funds I would recommended it under any circumstances.

    What I can say with confidence is in my case I couldn't have towed my trailer without a 3P. As manufacturers keep increasing the towing rating of half ton trucks situations like mine will became more and more common. To anyone trying to maximize the ability of their half ton to tow a travel trailer a 3P is a must.

    Finally, not enough can be said for Sean, his patience, responsiveness and customer service.




  10. There Are Trailer Hitches Then There is ProPride 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2016

    I have pulled bumper tow trailers for the last forty years and fought trailer sway with all the different trailers. I just purchased new Surveyor RBS243 travel trailer and am towing with Ford F-150 Eco. Purchasing the ProPride hitch is the best investment I have ever made for towing. The hitch performs better than I could have imagined. It would be nice to have a YouTube video showing the hitch being installed step by step.
