Well said !

But ... although I have not experienced any sway issues with either of my 25s or 20 connected via another wdh brand, I would really like to experience the P-P hitch for myself ... so many forum members have spoken of the virtues.

You won't really appreciate a ProPride or Hensley until you get into a situation that would normally scare you with another hitch. . Even in that case you still might not appreciate it, unless you got in that situation knowingly. If you did not intend to get into a scary situation, you probably wouldn't even know you would have been scared without it. Does that clear it up?

Conventional hitches -- dependent on TW and hitch bar tension for antisway -- still only have a few hundred pounds of resistance available. That our TT type is well-designed makes this enough most of the time. But it can be overcome.

The VPP hitches don't need TW to enable resistance force as that is not needed.

I'd ask if someone will let you drive theirs. But it would be even better to follow them through traffic to see how the vehicles are locked together, so to speak. Buy one or not, the "action" of the hitch speaks loudly . . . the harder the lane changes the more impressive it is. The longer and heavier the TT the more impressive. Etc.

Watch how your TT re-centers itself during the completion of a lane change. Vary it up so you've a good idea of the duration of that action. And watch a VPP. There is NO re-center. One has taken the double pendulum of a conventional hitch and reduced it what a 5er or GN experiences: a single pendulum.

There is no substitute.
