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.

It's easy to figure out because there is only ONE of you...

Personally, I find this impossible to believe, both about the hitch, and about Sean. I've been using a ProPride hitch for an estimated 65,000 miles, on three different trailers, with three different tow vehicles, and I have yet to have a problem on the road. I've even been thru one hair raising even where I believe the ProPride prevented me, and our friend behind us, also useing a ProPride, from having a major accident. (Check the ProPride site for my story.)

I have had one issue with a bent bar, that by the way is not manufacured by ProPride, and Sean took care of it right away at no cost to me.

Slicer, I simply do not believe you have given the ProPride, or Sean a fair shot with your towing issues.

SLICER,
I will advice you allow Sean to help you figure out how best to maximize the use of your PP. He helped a lot of us when we didn't even have his signature PP then. Whatever type of hitch you call him on, he is ready to research it and help out without pushing his PP down your throat. That speaks volume and I hope you will reconsider Sean's offer to help set your system up and enjoy your investment. As you are already aware, PM usually works better than open forum ."Happy streamin"

FYI - No affiliation whatsoever with PP company or owner/s.

Thanks for clarifying.

A good product should stand on it's own, and I hope this guy spreading BS isn't indicative of the direction the Hensley company, as a whole, is taking.

Time will tell... but I'm grateful they have competition.

What's the term for tossing a completely unsubstantiated grenade?

Three posts, to boot.

When I advocated for discussion to debate these hitches; it was with the intention one would provide at least some details.

Perhaps you are having difficulty expressing exactly, what the problem is you’re having with the hitch? I noticed, from your avatar, you are "currently looking”... maybe the problem is you need a trailer to hook the hitch onto?

Might explain why it’s sitting in the garage? Not sure ProPride can help you there...

I am sitting here sniggering at the "doesn't work" comment. All of us who have been towing our Airstreams with the PP must be either stupid or delusional. Maybe my trailer has been following my TV using powers of magnetic attraction or a scifi tractor beam.

Going downgrade

I've read not all, but several, posts on this thread and I didn't see anyone address the PP hitch's actions when heading down a 6% (or greater) slope. When I'm heading north on I-5 and coming down the "Grapevine", I sure wouldn't want any unexpected activity from my hitch!!

Any comments on this aspect?

I've not been on that particular stretch of road with our trailer, but I have towed with the ProPride for several years, and well over 50,000 miles, thru the mountains of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah several times, and one Alaska trip, many passes over 11,000 ft., and have never had any "unexpected activity".

Can you explain exactly what you are calling "unexpected activity"?

I'm looking at what little I can see of the dual parallel linkage and wondering if there's any chance of the trailer going 'over center' and ending up alongside the "stinger".

Don't know if there "any chance", but I can tell you in my experience it hasn't happened to me.

The tow vehicle controls the angle the hitch can go to, not the trailer.

If the hitch is not set up quite right or there is a little too much slop in the bearing adjustment, you can get a little off center nudge.....it is known as the "Hensley bump". But it is geometrically impossible to come around the sides of the links.

If the hitch is set up properly and the trailer brake is adjusted properly, the Hensley bump can be eliminated. I only experienced it once, until I got everything set up right....and it is no big deal when it occurs.
