As it stands right now, it looks like I'm going to have two Hensley's and a ProPride. I only have two Airstreams. For the moment, it looks like the ProPride is going to be the only "plug & play" hitch (should have it the middle of next week). On the Hensleys, I am going to have to do some fab work to use one as Hensley was of no help. I would like to run one PP (on my heavy-tongue 28') and one HA (on the 30' Classic) just for the experience but should have no use for the second HA. One of the HA's has a 6" drop hitch bar and the second, I'm not sure on the drop but will know soon.

You'll be first in line to get the second HA once I figured out what to do to make the first one work. If it turns into more trouble than its worth (fabbing for my application) and the PP works good, I may have two HAs up for grabs and just get a second PP. I have no real strong feelings for or against either hitch...I know the concept is good on both...its a matter of construction that will sway my vote.

As a side note, when talking to Hensley, the fellow (Terry) mentioned that Hensley will buy back a hitch...kind of weird but I suspect after shipping, you'd have enough money to take your family for breakfast at Waffle House assuming a small family.

I'll keep you posted. Hernando is where the trailer is located....Southaven...that's a pretty good ride for an oil change, huh? Any excuse to ride, as usual.

ZB, sorry-- learning to pack the wheel bearings is just not my idea of a great time. Not saying that it shouldn't or couldn't be someone else's idea of a great time.

My idea of a better time is dropping off the Bambi at the AS dealership service dept. and peeking into the new models; or dropping it off at our town's one RV service centre and doing something in town while the guys deal with it.

We also know that do-it-yourselfers can cause some real problems, like our neighbour's friend with a brand new RV who didn't winterize it properly.

When we first got the Bambi, we were under warranty for a year, and a lot did go wrong then-- which the dealership fixed for free. When camping we often asked other RVers for advice or assistance. We got over the initial timidity and humiliation very quickly. Many RVers seem to be retired blue collar folks. We've made some old guys feel useful and proud as they showed the newbies how to do something or how the whozeewhatsit works.

We do enjoy honing our camping skills, and taking the Bambi to fun places like western National Parks and BC lakeside campsites.
