Well we did it! My name is mike and we are a family of 4 with 3yr old and 6 month old. We live near Atlanta and two days ago I drove 6 hours, smiled for an hour during my inspection, hitched up for an hour (hensley) and drove home getting back at 4 am.
When my 3 year old woke up I told her to go look out the window for a surprise. She went to the wrong window and yelled "A Christmas tree!" I hollered for her to look out the other window and she yelled "Its huge!, mommy look! A camper!".
Pulling a 29' 89 excella with a 04 yukon denali for the first time (in the middle of the night, with a torrential rainstorm for 2 hours of the drive through south GA) was a bit intimidating. The weights were all acceptable up to a 32 footer and a full yukon, I installed a prodigy p2, have the towing kit and plenty of power, but man that 29 footer looked big next to the yukon.
My hat is off to hensley though, as well as the previous owner who spent the money to put the hensley on. This hitch is phenomenal. I was ready the whole time to do the accelerate + manual trailer brake procedure to stop a sway, but it quite simply never swayed. Not even one time over the 6 hour drive did I feel a sway, even though plenty of occurrences like trucks and wind gusts should have made it sway.
Next, thank you so much to this community for teaching us! The search tool has been very, very rewarding!
We look forward to meeting you all. Starting with the north GA gathering.
