I have one more question for you hensley arrow or propride 3p owners. I have noticed some pictures of these hitches installed on tt's and it goes right where the lp tanks go. Has anyone had a problem with this? I may be over thinking certain things but sometimes things turn up more problems. Please let me know!

Hensley

I can not speak to the 3P since I have the Hensley. But I have not have any problems yet from my Hensley install. It is a simply matter to remove either of the two "struts or shocks" (I do not know the correct term) when I need to refill my propane bottles. That is the only time that they are in my way. I can access both of my compartment doors with the Hensley in place. I hope that this helps. If you need me to take some pictures of my install for you just let me know. Which I have the V-Lite which is a V-type nose on it so this may be different that some of the other Hensley/3P owners.

Happy camping.

ProPride 3P

Neither the Arrow or the ProPride 3P interfere with the propane tanks.

If you'd like to see photos of various rigs with the 3P hitch installed you can take a look at the customer photos on the Facebook page -

You do not need to have a Facebook account to look at the photos.

Sean, With my current Reese Dual cam WDH I am using the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank to reduce any shocks that the TT might cause to my truck. Do you have anything similar in your setup?

No, I like as little movement between the tow vehicle and trailer as possible.

Has anyone used Hensley Cub Anti-Sway Trailer Hitch for small trailers. They priced it out for 1395.00 for everything. Planning on up grading my hitch. Thanks for the input.

I bought a used Hensley (18 mos. old) and will not tow with anything else again. As for the hooking up, once you do it a few times and mark your bars, you will be hooking up in under 2 minutes tops!

Well bought the Hensley hitch today. They are running a sale for the first 100 people this year. Get 300 dollars off the hitch. 99 dollars for shipping. 60 day money back. Won't start the time till April. Will have to try it and see.

You will never regret buying or owning a Hensley hitch. We had one for our TT and then traded it in for the BD-3 for our 5er.. Worth every penny spent. Click here:
