Dang, Steve, that's a weird camera angle. With the shadows I first thought something broke and the whole thing was laying on the ground!

Ha! thats some funny hitchin'!

I wonder... did the ProPride cause this?? Nah.. It was probably a poor repair from a tire tearing up...

I noticed a little 'looseness' in the beltline when we purchased from caretaker #2. I ask him 'what is this?" He said he never noticed... In pictures he sent me, I could see some movement of the aluminum in that area... but hey, this is a long, long trailer!

Now, if after this repair the problem resurfaces, then I will pull bellypans and FIX the problem.

Awaiting the delivery of my new '15 Classic (probably early Jan). My new ProPride arrived yesterday in the usual perfectly wrapped boxes. It's going to serve as "weight" in the bed of my Ram 2500 until the trailer arrives. Sean hits it out of the park in service and responsiveness!

I assume you mean the vertical part of the stinger protruding upward? If so, then yes...I do it when using my van as the receiver mouth is tucked forward of the rear bumper edge. Works fine. You only need an inch or so of exposed "drop bar" to attach.

Agreed - that is how I have my rock tamer connected and it should work just fine on your also.
Cheers

Yep, me too. A strong intellect, abundant common sense and outstanding sense of humor. When he posted on a subject, even the most grandiose of Airstream snobs knew to shut up and take a lesson from the master...

Question HuH?

There are three kinds of folks in this world:

1) Those that make things happen...

2) Those that watch things happen...

3) Those that wonder what just happened...

Count me in catagory 3) on 2Air...What happened, cause I must have missed something?

The manual tells you the procedure to determine height as well as the size of the bolts. The stinger is adjusted by sliding it up or down the bracket (or depending on the installation instructions, up or down in the bracket) and tightened with 3 sets of bolts.

Someone with a manual handy can give you more details...good luck!!

We drove all the way down to Florida only to find out that the seller didn't install the hitch. I was pretty irritated but did my best to keep cool about it. The ProPride was sitting in the box just as I had drop shipped it to him.

I brought down some wrenches and sockets and ended up installing the hitch myself. The instructions are crystal clear and just took my time. Most of it was actually enjoyable until I got my finger jammed in the main head 😜 (youch!!!) oh... And also the part where I thought I lost the couplers!!!! (Pre-installed in the head).

First of all I'd like to say that most business owners can learn a thing or two about excellence from Sean. If you've dealt with him than you know what I'm talking about -- He is simply incredible. His responses to my questions were almost instant. Like I had him by my side for the install.

I'm glad I installed it, as I have a better understanding of how the parts work with one another.

A few people came to chat about the hitch as I was installing and found most of them had no idea what it was. A few tried to tell me it was overkill, but I'd rather have a safer, more comfortable tow with our half ton truck.

I also learned that most of my neighbors are super cool and helpful. Especially our neighbor next door who has super-human strength and helped me torque down the yoke bolts.

All and all, I'm glad it worked out this way and so psyched on our airstream as it's much nicer than we anticipated. Looking forward to our first tow!
