Hensley = Haha?

Why is the hensley hitch referred to as haha? It kind of sounds derogatory,or am I just reading too much into it?

No, it's just an acronym for Hensley Arrow Hitch Assembly.

I believe 2airishuman first referred to the hitch as the "Hensley Arrow Hitch Apparatus," or haha, in posts some years back.

2air presently tows with a ProPride hitch which he refers to as his PP.

I suppose either moniker could be construed to be somewhat derogatory.

I don't think that either name is looked upon as derogatory by anyone in the trailer towing crowd. Both of these products are rather highly regarded.

Thank you. Prior to changing over to a MH, we towed using a Hensley for six years and 20,000 miles. It was wonderful to say the least. So, I'm glad to hear that haha is an acronym. I now also understand the PP moniker.

What the???

MH, MOHO, SOB, DW, TPMS, GPS, 4G, A/T, ABS, M/T, S/O, IMHO, IIRC, YMMV, GYM oops that ones a swear word somedays. This could be it's own thread, oh wait, I bet it already happened, oh you guys know more of them than I do.

I honestly didn't know the formal name of the HAHA, now I do.
