"Baby Hensley" ?

Question: What is a "baby Hensley" ??

Tow: Silverado 2500HD (awesome...)

Hitch: Hensley Hitch on our 2004 30' Classis (also, awesome)

Just acquired a 2016 25' Flying Cloud (RBT)

Considering...
a) move present Hensley from Classis to FC (not a challenge, I've done a field replacement of a Hensley before)
b) leave present hitch on the Classic for its new owner to enjoy and acquire either...
- another Hensley as-is
- ProPride
- rumors of a "baby Hensley" but that nick-name turns up nothing as neither Hensley nor ProPride seem to set a different-product class/category except hitch selection by weights. So if there IS such a thing... specifics ???

They call it the Cub. But its for trailers under 6000 lb and 600 lb max tongue so really a 5000 lb max Airstream.

Edit: Ah you beat me to it Richard.

If I were in your place I would let the Hensley go with the trailer and price your trailer accordingly. Go for the updated Propride hitch.

If you keep your Hensley, it would be worthwhile to contact the company and see what spring bars they recommend for your new trailer.

A 25' trailer is best served with 800-1000 lb bars.
