Looking at photos on ProPride's facebook page it looks like the WD bar jacks block the access to the propane tanks. Is this a big hassle? I appreciate any and all info on this hitch on the Windjammer series. Thanks
Saw this earlier on the mobile app but haven't had a chance to respond until now. We're pulling a Windjammer 3008W using the ProPride P3 (PPP3) hitch and a huge upgrade from the EAZ Lift that the dealer set us up with. Even in heavy winds the trailer is well mannered. The most Semi's will do is give you a gentle nudge but well controlled. I too had talked to Sean about the PPP3 on a v-nose and tried using the old Snap Up brackets with chains when we first got the trailer for the reason as to not block the doors for the propane tanks. However, without the WD towers and the solid connection rods, it was difficult to hook-up some times because the hitch wanted to move from side to side too much. The chains simply don't hold it in place like the WD towers do.... Yes, you need to unbolt the towers when you need to get to the tanks, but it's a fairly simple and quick process. Takes me about 5 mins to do both.
Had to look up the floor plan on your Windjammer 2809W, and like the fact it has the slide for the master bedroom.
