Was checking out the Propride 3P on the Propride site and saw the guarantee I pasted below. At $2,000 cheaper I'm temped to try the Reese Staight line /duel cam sway first before dropping the $$$ on the P3. Any first hand experience withe the Reese straight line... Out there?


Purchase Reese hitches with confidence backed by the ProPride Towing Comfort Guarantee!

If the Reese Straight Line Hitch with Dual Cam Sway Control does not provide you with the towing stability you desire you can apply 100% of the purchase price toward purchasing a ProPride 3P. We have you covered for total towing comfort and stability.

The risk averse person in me would carefully parse that “guarantee”. In fact, you COULD apply 100% of the Reese purchase price toward a ProPride. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get your money back from Reese for that purpose - it may just mean you’ll outlay that cash (again) to another company.

Most major brands are likely fine. All have their pros and cons. Know what you’re trying to accomplish, why, and which product meets those objectives best.

Spend the money once. Happy camping!

They are betting you will not know the difference, most won’t.

Only if you have towed with them BOTH will you know.

I have towed with them and will not tow without my ProPride.

When comparing products / bids. The cheapest will ALWAYS be the most expensive in the end.

Reese on my 2006 25' AS worked fine 2.5 years we towed. 2008 25' AS had an Equalizer which broke while backing; one of the stabilizer bars twisted. Dealer in Phoenix had a SwayPro from BlueOX in stock so I went with that. Worked great for the 2 years we had that AS. With our new 2014 25' AS, we went with SwayPro again...no issues for the 3 years we had that AS. I was very happy with the performance over 3 years, keeping the 25' AS in line even in very scary swerving maneuver caused by "wreck-less" driver changing lanes and trying to pass me on the right; I was going 65mph...the SwayPro did it's job along with the F150 sway control; maintained control.

Fast forward; we have had our 2017 28' AS 15 months now with a SwayPro...very happy with the ride and stability. Lots of choices out there...I like the BlueOx. You need to understand the set up and how it works compared to other WDH with sway control options...there are many choices, as you may know; also lots of opinions.....

Need advice on the best anti-sway hitch.

Reese and ProPride are two totally different companies.

I have a ProPride and flat will not tow anything with an A-frame and ball hitch configuration without one.

I’ve got a Hensley on my 29’ and am interested in what you like better about the Reese. I find with the Hensley, the WD doesn’t make much difference as it did on the smaller Ford Explorer that I used to pull with.

.....for one thing with the Hensley, you had to be at the same level ,sideways and length ways...to hook up..real often I had to drive the pickup up on blocks. on one side to be level .....we park at a lot of places where the ground is unlevel every which way..now at a fairgrounds...it is unlevel every direction..no problem hooking up with the Reese..we have 7800 on the axles and 10050 on the ball...17 2500 ram...6.7...went to Nova Scotia, 3200 miles now drifting home....

I had problems with it originally, then got used to using the tensioners on each side to twist the head left, right, up and down. Usually worked, although there were a couple times I had to get pretty radical, including one time totally dismantling the hitch to attach it to the TV. It is a lot different from hooking up my boat trailer. Thanks for your insight. The HAHA is original to the AS so 25 years old, so looking. Hope you enjoyed NS. Drift careful.
