Of course you also need the correct TV setups as well. 😁🏁
+1. I have the ProPride, which is very similar to the Hensley- designed by the same guy, just a newer rendition. I found the ProPride to have benefits; others are die hard Hensley fans. With this being said, you'd have infinitely fewer stories of people hating towing a TT and dropping big money to go to a FW if they had tried a HA or PP. They are expensive for a reason- they work. Every time, all the time.

The tow rating difference between the two is 2K or more, depending on configuration.
