Well, I also have the H/A. Had I known (and waited but two months) that the more adjustable, improved-design ProPride would be available I'd have rigged up a used Dual Cam as the temporary substitute. I'm more likely today to go to the Pullrite for the next trailer.

Some things, like the best hitch and trailer disc brakes are worth far more than the dollars applied (especially compared to depreciation on any of these vehicles, TV or TT; something that gits ignored on discusssion of "value").

There's nothing quite like a '34 behind a long wheelbase pickemup. Once hitched I was at 63' in a 65' limit state.

FYI -- the GM 3/4 ton Duramax (ie 2500HD) has an integrated exhaust brake.

I have never owned a GMC, but neither my 2005 Chevy 2500HD Duramax, nor my currently owned 2007 Chevy 2500HD came equipped with an integrated exhaust brake. I thought it was an option in more recent model years. Is it now standard equipment?.

We moved from a 1968 24' Trade Wind to a 1994 34' Excella 1000. We loved our vintage Trade Wind but the 34' Excella is sooo nice. The rear bedroom is great. I am glad we already had a Ford F-250 diesel as the 34' trailer really needs a large truck to pull it and the torque of the diesel is a plus. We have a Reese WD hitch and the most comfortable tow speed on the interstate is 60 to 65 MPH.

According to the GM brochure (at least for 2011) the 2500HD diesels all have the integrated exhaust brake as a standard feature.

I don't know about the integrated trailer brake control (which works great) or the stabil-a-track features....these might not be standard.
