ProPride P3 Trailer Sway Control Hitch

Title: Add New - Airstream Trailer Classifieds - Airstream Trailers For Sale
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

ProPride 3P Trailer Sway Control Hitch with 1,400 pound weight distribution bars:


Purchased new in 2017. Includes spare parts, original manual and installation instructions. When new, the hitch sold for $2,645.

Probably most here are familiar with the ProPride and the similar Hensley Arrow hitches, but if not, in a nutshell they use "pivot point projection" to make it seem as if the hitch point is over the tow vehicle’s rear axle, and thus tow a bit more like a fifth wheel and have no sway. They also do weight distribution, but the PPP is the main feature.

This ProPride 3P Trailer Sway Control Hitch was purchased and put in use in July 2017. I have only towed the trailer in dry western climates, with no winter towing. No accidents or issues with the hitch's operation. I did try to make a U-turn once in an inadvisable place (so the issue was with the driver!), which slightly bent the Adjustable Hitch Bar (this is the part that goes into your tow vehicle's receiver and is separate from the main part of the hitch). But I had it straightened at a shop (see Hitch Bar top view photo), and the hitch tows fine.

I also had the Hitch Bar Hitch End modified to suit my truck's height slightly better. The Adjustable Hitch Bar fits a 2" truck receiver, but ProPride sells a 2.5” hitch bar receiver end (

The weight distributing bars are 1,400# (I used this with an F-150 and Airstream 27' FB International). ProPride also sells the bars in different weight ratings, if 1,400# is not suited for your combination.

For more information, see ProPride’s frequently asked questions page ( or the extensive AirForums thread (

I'm selling this hitch because I changed from an F-150 to an F-250 *and* I do quite a bit of boondocking. I don't "need" the PP quite as much with the F-250 (although it would still be very nice!), and it can be slightly tricky to use in rough terrain (hitching and un-hitching in "rugged" boondocks). For mostly highway and "normal" campground use (with occasional boondocking), it's a marvelous hitch.

LOCAL PICKUP—I can meet you in the Parker/Lake Havasu City AZ/Kingman AZ area (or maybe Las Vegas/Phoenix/eastern Los Angeles - just check in with me on those as they are a bit further away). Cash sales only.

SHIPPING—total weight is about 230 pounds. This would be split into more than one box. I will drop it off at the local UPS store and they will package and ship it at buyer's expense. (We can work out details.) It would be shipped from western Arizona (Parker area).
