ProPride v2 WD Jacks

I've been informed that ProPride has developed a new version of the WD jacks. They call them v2 (version 2).

Looks like they have some definite benefits. One being it gives more room to open the door of the front storage compartment.

Has anyone purchased and installed the v2 jacks?

I went on their website, and sure enough. But it doesn’t give an explanation as to how they are set up. But it would be interesting to see how they work.

There is a video that explains how it works and how it differs from V1.

I’ve purchased them but they are back ordered or not yet shipping. I’ll report back after install.

Itís a youtube video. If you do a search you can find it. It really looks like a major improvement. The door opens completely; no problems. Also adjusting the hitch looks much easier.

Not ready to spend the money right now, but I could see it as being something to do in the future.

It's a $500 upgrade. I think I'll just continue to wrestle with the 3/4 opening on the front hatch.

$350 for a retrofit set. $250 if you ordered early and sent your originals back.

I have purchased a pair, but not yet received them. I ordered as soon as Sean Woodruff made the product announcement on the ProPride users Facebook page (gotta love that $250 deal!), hoping they would provide better front locker access. I could always cancel the order before it shipped if I learned otherwise.

They then showed them off during the very next episode of ProPride TV, where I asked if they fit Airstreams any differently. I was quite happy to see them demonstrate the jacks on an Airstream in that episode. Click on this link to see the demo.

How were you made aware of this special early order price. I don't see it anywhere on the PorPride website?

Just curious!

For what it is worth I donít have front storage and the v1 jacks work perfect and trouble free.

I can however appreciate the frustration for those who cannot fully access under bed storage in the FB models.
