44 PSI made a huge difference on the P rated tires, but I still had a few moments. Already ordered my 2nd sway bar and optimistic it will help.

After you add the 2nd sway bar you will definitely notice a difference and when you go to a LT LR D or LR E tire you will notice a difference also.

I gave up and bought a Hensley hitch, its expensive but everyone says it stops the problem. Tired of adjusting every thing every time I change the loading or weather. I pick it up tomorrow, let you know....

Well I did it, drove there empty, barely able to do 60 mph dancing in the wind and the passing of trucks, both hands white knuckled on the wheel. 2 hours later Dennis at Hensley had it installed, I hooked it up (it can be done with a little knowledge) and away we went. A few miles on the highway and I was one handing it drinking my coffee. My wife mentioned that I was much more relaxed and doing 80 mph. I slowed down of course and enjoyed the rest of the ride. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Next stop was used trailer land if it wasn't fixed. Amazing what piece of mind $2500 will buy you.

Isn't it a tremendous difference, I would never go back to towing without it.

+1. I have the ProPride, though. I actually ruled out a V-Nose trailer that my wife really liked because I couldn't use the ProPride.

I bought a used HA and towed a 31' TT weighing 7300lbs with an 2010 F150 145" WB. It towed every bit a good as my current 28' 5er weighing 9000lbs does behind my 2500 CTD. Expensive? Yes but if you're doing a good amount of towing over the course of a year then it's well worth it.
I bought mine for $950 and sold it for $900. Could've easily got $950 but didn't want to haggle.


Congrats on your purchase.
