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. Now ordering a second one 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2017

    I have been thinking about writing a review for a long time and finally getting to it since I am going to be ordering another ProPride P3 hitch for our new trailer – I originally intended to transfer the hitch to our new trailer but the buyer of our old trailer has decided he wants the hitch after towing with it. Years ago my wife and I were returning to Missouri from Colorado in March on I-70 with a strong, blistering cross wind from the north. We driving our car (not towing anything) and were catching up to a Suburban towing an Airstream. An 18 wheeler passed the Suburban/Airstream and they lost it – started swaying, first onto the right shoulder, then across both lanes to the inside shoulder then off the highway to the right jack knifing – the Suburban rolled but the Airstream stayed upright. It seemed to happen faster than you can read this. Everyone in the Suburban was ok; they all were belted in so only bruises and scrapes. But seeing firsthand the results of trailer sway made a lasting impression on my wife and me.

    So three years ago when we purchased our first travel trailer I knew I wanted something to eliminate sway. After Internet searching, reading reviews, etc., I decided to purchase a ProPride P3. We have a 2010 F-150 XLT SuperCrew 5.4L with towing package and purchased a slightly used 2012 Jayco Jay Flight 28 BHS travel trailer (overall length is around 31 ft). Trailer is 5,400 lbs empty and has a gross of 7,500 lbs. We normally tow with minimal water & empty holding tanks so the trailer weights in at about 6,400 lbs with our usual load of “stuff”.

    Since purchasing the trailer used in August 2014 we have put over 6,000 miles on it including one 4+ week trip out west to Yellowstone, Tetons, and Colorado, etc. We have never experienced any sway even with strong cross winds on I-80 and I-70 and passing big rigs – nothing, nada, no sway period. The truck and trailer act as one unit; if you do have a strong gust of wind or a passing rig, the truck and trailer move as one to the side just like the truck would without a trailer being towed behind it. This hitch just works as advertised.

    I talked to Sean before buying the hitch with a couple of questions and followed his recommendations on what to order. I had the trailer at the local Jayco dealer when we first bought it and had one of their mechanics help me install it. If my memory is correct we installed it in a little less than 2 hours, first time working with a ProPride hitch for both of us. With two sets of hands, it was a straight forward task and we didn’t have any problems or questions, just had to read the instructions closely.

    As I mentioned before, I had intended to transfer the hitch to our new trailer but our friend & neighbor who is purchasing our old trailer has decided he wants it. He and his family used the trailer twice for short weekend trips to a nearby campground to see how his wife & kids like it (they are upgrading from a popup trailer). At first he was unsure about hooking it up compared to the old popup with a regular ball hitch. This last weekend they were camping next to his parents (also in a travel trailer) and when getting ready to leave he hooked it up faster that his dad. That was his third time hitching up the ProPride and he was surprised he was quicker than his dad. So now I have to order another ProPride for the new trailer – go figure!


  2. Works as advertised 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2017

    Have a 2016 F-150 Super Cab and a 6.5 foot bed. I tow a 30' Airstream Flying Cloud. Before the Pro Pride hitch it was a white knuckle experience, the sway, the hobby horsing and getting pushed around by the 18 wheelers was terrible. Now I just sit back and enjoy the ride. I never would have believed a hitch could make such a difference. The customer service given during the installation was fantastic as well. Thanks for a well designed product.


  3. Relax! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    Very happy with the service and communication with ProPride. A month before a 1200 mile trip I had saved up enough to purchase a 3P hitch system. Sean assured me he would be able to get a hitch shipped to me with time to spare for setup and testing. He did and I was given his personal cell number if I had any issues with install or setup. As it was the included directions were all I needed. Installation is straight forward if you are at all mechanically inclined and have access to the tools needed. Took me maybe 3 hours on a very hot day with "Beverage" breaks.

    Now onto the towing experience... Hooking up to the trailer was easy. Just set the coupler height to match the stinger height on the truck, square up truck and trailer and back in. (My rear view camera made it a one person task, hooked and ready to go in 5 min) I took the truck and trailer over to get weighed and at first really did not notice much difference. Slow right angle turns seemed a little different. I feel like I can turn a little later and a little sharper. I set the jacks at the scales to return the weight to my front axle that the trailer removed. Turned out to be a six inch rise on the jacks. The place where this system shines in the Freeway and higher speed two lanes. I have a 37 foot trailer with a rear kitchen that has always been "Tail Happy". I have had to use the trailer brakes occasionally in the past to get it back in line. So towing it WAS always a little nerve racking. Not any more. No push and pull wag from passing big rigs. We (Wife and I) felt comfortable enough to use the cruise control while towing for the first time. Never felt once in 1200 miles that the trailer was driving the truck. We even encountered a strong gusty cross wind for about 300 miles. The rig ran straight and true. Now I have read about some feeling the gust or push from passing rigs would move both truck and trailer together with this system, but perhaps since we had a combined weight of 16,200 pounds, I never really noticed more than a little "bump". (Maybe that's what they were referring to.) Our setup is a 37 foot Keystone Cougar travel trailer and a 2016 Nissan Titan XD 4x4 tow vehicle. Actual ready to camp scale weights: Trailer, 9,100 lbs. Truck, 7,100 lbs

    So, my opinion, if you can save up the $$ and would like to relax some while towing, purchase this system.

    Now...Anybody want to buy a gently used Blue Ox Sway Pro?


  4. The ProPride 3P is Awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2017

    After I purchased my first travel trailer, I had instant buyer’s remorse as I drove it home from the dealership. Being a total newbie, I allowed the dealer to sell me a bigger trailer than I should have gotten (a 35’ Keystone Outback at 7200lbs) being towed by my old Lincoln Navigator. The dealer also sold me an overpriced standard weight distribution hitch that they installed and adjusted for me. Coming home from the dealership, driving down the expressway in fairly high winds, I couldn’t drive more than 50-55mph without feeling excessive sway that had me totally stressed and white knuckling the whole way home. I was almost sick to my stomach about my purchase, knowing I could never feel comfortable towing it to where we really wanted to take it. After voicing my concerns, a friend told us about the “Hensley Hitch,” and how it had dramatically changed their whole experience, so I looked it up. Honestly, at first look, the price tag kept me at bay for a while, however, after thinking about it for quite some time, and reading the overwhelmingly positive reviews on the ProPride 3P’s performance, I decided that this was probably the only realistic option I had for ever being able to enjoy towing with my setup over longer distances. Sean was top notch, and awesome to work with, as he provided a level of customer service you rarely see these days. After receiving the hitch and flipping through the installation instructions, it looked intimidating to put together, however by taking things one step at a time, it turned out to be much easier to install than I anticipated. Just 2 days after install, we took our first 500 mile (roundtrip) trip to northern Michigan. After a little bit of tweaking with the amount of pressure I was putting on the weight distributing spring bars, I got the ride setup awesome. Coming back home, we drove south in consistent and gusting crosswinds from the west, and I was able to comfortably drive the speed limit, passing other slower moving RV’s, and semi’s, and sometimes even forgetting I was even towing a trailer. The ProPride 3P is truly a remarkable piece of engineering! Not only did it destroy the sway, it also eliminated my anxiety about towing long distance.


  5. Can't put a price on safety 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    After a white knuckle trip in high cross winds with my previous hitch I decided I needed to upgrade my tow vehicle. Then I did some research and found the ProPride 3P hitch and, after many reviews, decided that would be cheaper than a new truck. I must say after two trips now I am extremely pleased with my purchase. No sway from wind or passing big rigs. Rock solid feel and nice level tow. I was afraid that it would be more difficult to hitch up but found just the opposite; it is easier! I think the cost is little to pay for my families safety and my peace of mind!


  6. Works as expected 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    Two trips so far (over 800 miles total). I use an 2012 F150 to pull a lightweight toy hauler that is 32 feet long and 12 feet high. There were long stretches in each trip where I would've been topping out at 55mph due to heavy cross winds using the Reese Straight Line hitch (which I consider a really good weight distribution hitch). I was able to comfortably travel at 65mph with the ProPride 3P hitch. I also found it much faster to hook up to and unhook from. I am very happy I made the switch.


  7. Extremely Happy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2017

    So after finally carving out enough time to install my new Propride Hitch and actually tow with it, I must say that it is everything folks say it is. It is a dramatic difference from my Husky Centerline. It essentially turns the tow vehicle and the trailer into one unit. No more feeling like you have a “tail” back there.

    Considering the cost of the hitch and the all the research I did, I was expecting great performance and was not disappointed at all. Where I am most impressed, and why I am writing this, is the customer service. Sean at Propride was fantastic. I was installing my hitch very early one morning and he was quick to respond to text messages with small questions…on a Saturday! Yes, Sean provided me his personal cell number when I purchased the hitch…I have never had another company owner do that. Eventually I ran into an issue where the standard linkage for the weight distribution jacks wasn’t long enough because of the way my coupler is welded to my frame. Spoke with Sean and he literally dropped what he was doing, went to his shop and fabricated custom linkages for me that afternoon. Then, on top, overnighted them to me so I would be able to get them installed before our trip the next day.

    I really can’t say enough about his efforts to make sure that I was set up correctly and had everything I needed. Superb hitch and customer service to match, well done Propride!


  8. 2,500 MILES OF "NO" WHITE KNUCKLE DRIVING 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2017

    I needed something better for towing my new 36' Outback camper with my new Dodge 2500 pickup. I had made two short trips pulling camper with the standard weight distribution and sway control systems and based on that experience I was not looking forward to our cross country trip from South Carolina to Idaho. Began my research and found two that I did more in depth looking at. When I called and talked with Sean and my questions were answered with a high degree of professionalism I was sold on the ProPride 3P hitch. They jumped through hoops and delivered my hitch prior to the Memorial Day Holiday, as promised. During the install I had a couple of questions and contacted Sean, who walked me through the issues. Took about 4 hours to install by myself. It took a little practice to learn the hook up processes and the tricks to make it easy and after a couple of test runs and unhook, hookup practice sessions my wife and I began our 5 week adventure. I can testify that I had zero white knuckle driving concerns. we drove through mountains, deserts, high wind, lots of truck traffic and I did not have issues with sway at all. I was totally blown away by the performance of the equipment. It does exactly what they claim it to do. It does not completely eliminate sway but what sway you may get is in line with your vehicle and it acts as a complete unit, not the trailer swinging back and forth, but the whole unit being pushed by the wind, which is totally manageable. I should have had this system years ago, would have enjoyed the road much more. We are half way through our journey that has taken us through Branson, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, and now Idaho. We have driven through the Black Hills, Tetons and now the Rocky Mountains and I have just had no issues with towing. My wife is now the official set up person for hookups and we now are hooked up ready to travel quicker than my old system.

    If you want to eliminate "white knuckle" driving, I would highly recommend ProPride. They do what they say, they answer question promptly, their service is better than any I have seen and their product is second to none. I now feel safe pulling a 10,000# trailer anywhere and in any situation, Thanks to ProPride.


  9. Best Product On The Market 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I purchased this hitch to help control sway on a large toy-hauler that travels throughout the region to special events. The tow vehicle (donated) was just on the edge of too small to safely control the trailer. We avoided highways whenever possible.

    With the new hitch, it is a night and day difference. Sway is gone, and the weight distribution system is far superior to the former setup that was also sized for this trailer. I would suggest this system to anyone towing a large trailer.


  10. 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
