Have a 2014 28'(3 slide) rear kitchen Solaire 247(5900# dry). TV 2014 tundra 5.7 crew max/ 5.5'bed.A new reese w/sway-800# rated. It pulls, stops fine until certain trucks(cant predict which) or a sudden gust cross-wind causes loss of control up to a couple of seconds=that's 2(two) too many for this cowboy! Pulls/controls easily @ 60+ mph until either incident occurs-both at the same time results in the above mentioned situations.
I have a Propride 3P. TV is a 2013 F150 SCrew, Ecoboost, 4x4. TT is a 2015 Puma 31-RDKS, 34.5' long, dry weight (yellow sticker) 7952. Fully loaded we are probably just over 9K. We picked the camper up from RVW in Lakeview, OH, and pulled it over 1000 miles on the trip home. The hitch worked beautifully. The Propride has an adjustable hitch head and will work with most stock height pickups. The Hensley hitch head is NOT height adjustable.

Call Sean at ProPride and he can explain the difference between his product and the Hensley. I have the ProPride and could not be happier. No sway period. Easy to hitch and unhitch. Talk to Sean about the price difference you may be surprised of his answer. Always remember that you have an expensive tow vehicle and now a costly trailer, why be cheap on what connects them together.

As an owner of a 4Runner be cautious of the weight on the vehicle. The dry weight should be added to the estimated items inside the camper ( most use 1000 lbs) the add propane weight (80 lbs) then occupants in the tow vehicle. Not sure of the max weight on the Tundra but just passing some info along.

Happy Travels

Just wanted to update everyone that we did pull our camper to Tn from Iowa on vacation with NO problems, NO sway and NO bouncing!! Our problems are taken care of and we had an awesome 10 day vacation

Thanks for everyone's help! Don't know what I'd do without this group!!
