I don't have a TT so I don't have the propride hitch but what I do have is a 5er coupled to the Hensley BD3 in the bed of my truck. Been using the BD3 for two years and wouldn't want to tow without it. A bit on the high dollar side but worth every penny. Hensley makes excellent products.

I have had my Hensley for a long time now, it's on the fourth trailer now and doing very well, I have never owned a Pro-Pride but understand it does just as good a job as my Hensley. I could not imagine towing with any other type of set-up, but, to each their own.

Another question for The Manufacturers and Owners. I would love to know about backing up with this hitch. Especially "slalom" backing, where you have to turn the trailer one way, then another, to get it into a spot. I have to do that to back it onto the side of my garage.

It backs up just as a normal hook up without the noise of some friction sway control types.

No problem backing up, I have to do a zig-zag to get into my space beside the garage, hydro thought it was a great idea to place a hydro pole and guy wire where I could have backed in straight.
