I'm sorry but the learning curve on a Hensley is like learning how to have sex. Once you finesse the technique of fitting your stinger into a 2" box, you can do it all by yourself.

OK, that sounds weird, but those of you in the know understand what i mean.

That's pretty doggoned close to the feeling.

When I first got back to RVing, after a four year break, relearning the Hensley meant 20 minutes of trial and error and cursing. Now I get it first try, about 85% of the time. I still curse anyway.

I have had a Hensley for Lucy from the beginning. We have now towed Lucy with the Hensley for over 100.000 miles. We have hooked up with the Hensley hundreds of times. There is a bit of a learning curve with the Hensley, but it's not launching rockets.

The towing experience makes it worth the expense and effort. We have never has a single anxious moment with the Hensley. There is no sway, period.

This being said, if I were replacing Lucy's Hensley today, I would seriously consider the ProPride.
