What do you have? Depends on what you are towing and what you are towing with (shameless plug for putting your trailer and TV information in your tag line).

I'd grab it for my rig even though I like to use Equal-i-zer. Especially if I intended to move to a larger TT in the near future.

Currently have a 25ft. Dutchmen and the TV is an 06 Chevy 2500HD diesel. February we are going shopping for V Lite 30wfkss which will be in the 35ft. range.

I would absolutely buy that used Hensley. 35ft is a long trailer and the 30wfks can be loaded fairly heavy.

Hensley and Propride are purportedly the best at eliminating sway - just do a search on the forum for user's experiences. The price is right, too.

I'll add that you can likely sell the Hensley for the same price or better come spring if you do not end up getting the new trailer. There's really no downside to picking it up now.

I have been towing my 31 ft long 2901ss for over a year with my used Hensley and wouldn't trade it for anything. I would say buy it quick before someone else does at that price.

You won't regret this purchase one bit, especially at that price. I first pulled with a Blue Ox Sway Pro and the wind would have it's way with my long trailer, tossing it to and fro. Now that I have my Hensley even towing across the plains out west this past summer with VERY high winds we had no trouble. Congrats on the purchase. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions on how to set it up.
