Guys, there has been, I believe, a long history of mud slinging and bad feelings with the "divorce" of the folks involved in this invention. I think we should let failure reports on public forums speak for themselves.....not much either way.

Oh, I thought this was a thread about the PP and Arrow design

If you want to put a moderator hat on, how about providing a link to some of that 'discussion'?

I always put a great deal of weight on negative statements made by business people about their primary competition.

The pros and cons of the two hitches has gone on for years - both are very good products and do their jobs well...

Can you imagin, someone with a multiple personality disorder shopping for one of these...?

Sometimes I think there may be some of those people here?

The good thing about Hensley and ProPride is that they are expensive enough that you better be happy with whichever you have.

Is it so wrong that I love my Hensley?

I can't help it, that's how god made me.

Actually, I'm going to start actively lobbying my representative for legislation to mandate that everyone must submit to using a PPP hitch.

Hensley Pride!
Pro Pride!

I have watched this thread (and others on this subject) for a while now. Sometime I will post about the reasons I changed from an Equalizer to a ProPride hitch as the process was an interesting one. For now let me say that after the first time I towed with my new ProPride hitch I knew I had made the right choice. All I will say for now is Wow!

The only bad advice I got from the dealer when we purchased new was on what hitch to buy!

I chose ProPride in the end as Sean was simply amazing. From no additional cost custom mounts (had to get around my modified battery box) to much question answering he was just the best.

The difference is simply amazing!

My experience with the PP hitch and the company management has not been good. The hitch doesn't work and it sits useless in my garage. Can't send it back and can't get a response from management.

What do you mean, "It doesn't work?" This sounds like the problem is you, not the hitch.

I just towed about 500 miles in the gusty crosswinds last week and I could drive one-handed where our caravan leader, with many thousands of miles of towing, could hardly stay on the road with a conventional hitch. The PP paid for itself on that one trip.

I replaced our Equalizer hitch with a ProPride and could not be happier with both the help I received from the company with a difficult installation (resolved with custom jack brackets at no additional charge, thank you very much!) and with the resulting improvement in towing performance over the Equalizer.

I could not be happier!!!

Can you describe the problem you are having? May be the folks that own the hitch on this forum can help you with your problem. I have had nothing but good service from the Propride company and the hitch works great.

Don't flame the messenger. I've never even seen a PP, in person.
Not flaming, but of course Terry told you that...

Just as a factual note... I hired Terry and ran the company for 10 years. I wonder why I didn't see all this testing and prototyping of the 3P design while I was there. As I told Terry in an email, many times, he becomes more and more comical as the years pass.

Just a note of advice... once I am threatened I am done with you. You can read account after account, in many different locations around the internet, about the effectiveness of the ProPride 3P hitch. Your statement that it doesn't work is false. You can send letters to Good Sam, you can call, you can send emails, you can... do whatever you like. BUT, as you can see just about anyplace you want to look, you are going to be lonely in your threats and demands. We bend over backwards, until we're looking forward again, and then I just can't help you and I have too many good people who appreciate everything we do that deserve the time.
