Plenty of smaller trailers using the Hensley. There are quite a few posts

on the Ultimate Users Thread.


The light weight and single axle are just two

good reasons for seriously considering the investment. Plus a lot of owners

will trade up and take the haha with them. 16' to 34' you'll never have to

puschase another setup, plus the lifetime warranty to the original buyer

is another good incentive.

We tow our beloved 25' Excella with a Hensley. It's worth every penny we spent. I promise not to cry like the lady in the HaHa PR video though (but I agree with her).

I do not cry but I smile.
The only thing I didn't expecting is that the hensley make my drive harder on gas as I happen to figure out that I drive now at 70mph and I was used to do 60mph...
So I have to slow down

Dufferin,

I may have missed it, but what are you using as your tow vehicle?

Cheers,

Doug

Can a newbie figure out how to install the Hensley? Should I buy and have a dealer install it? Are there any discounts available? Or is it 3,000.00 period?
Thanks
Dennis

My thoughts towards it were simple: If it did what the company claimed it could then I was sold. If I weren't impressed, I'd have gotten my money back for it.

I was (and am) impressed. I was sold on the performance of "locking together" the TV and TT into a single unit. I had to be careful of not initiating a few lane changes as early as I might have (in construction) since the trailer so exactly follows (and my rig is so long). More a matter of mindfulness.

My belief, as a truck driver, was if the truck is right, then all else can be dealt with. So far as is possible the rig needs to be ideal. Then one can deal with road condition, traffic, weather, fatigue, the need to be on schedule and the rest.

I've put the cart before the horse to some degree in needing to modify my truck suspension (and, likely, the WD bars) before I can say I have this one "right".

I have the confidence that I can snake my way at speed around obstacles (not just hope I can). The hitch is NOT the weak link once one has a Hensley. If the TV can do it (manuever) so can the trailer.
