If you can get the Hensley/pro Pride I would do it. I really like mine. Hensley doesn't honor the lifetime guarantee of you buy it used. Unless you cough up $500 to them. At that point you're better off dealing straight with hensley. Keep in mind it is very heavy so if your close to maxed on tongue weight be careful.

i too bought the 26rr and after some research settled on the anderson hitch.we have used it 8 times this year and it worked well for us .the hitch is not hard to set up, we set ours up at the dealership where we purchased the trailer and the dealer had never seen this hitch either. youtube has some very good videos on setup and use of this hitch.it took a little adjustments but all said and done set up was done in 1/2 hour .by me and another guy.just make sure to torque everything to spec.you should have no problem and you will be amazed how quiet it is

26RR

Finally got around to checking my hitch. Pro Series 800 lb round bar. Sells for around $290. My 26RR sets at 24 inches, my 3/4 Chevy at 24 1/2 inches chains on link 7. I am grossed at about 6800 on the trailer w/800 bike and gear and about 6500 on Chevy. Have about 2000 miles so far this trip with no problems much of it two lane roads. No need for a sway bar (Have one setting in truck). Guessing at about 700 lbs tongue weight. I had to move bike back to front wheel over rear axle to attain that and run with waste tanks empty.
I like the towing set up but do not like the couch/table setup. Fine if you need a second bed but with two people a waste of space. Not much I can do on the road but a major overhaul is in the cards for spring. I am thinking a fold up dinette like in the WP22. Already have the Walmart folding table, the fancy one that came with it stayed home. I am interested in ideas others may have for opening up rear space but leaving toy hauler ability.

You can look at what I did under pimp my 26rr for the back area. I really like it now. I re arranged the seats to have sort of a sectional In the back and also moved TV back, now it's more of a living room. We use TV trays for table. Here are a couple pics more on that prior threadClick image for larger version

The pvc poles remove so the bench can fold up these prevent you from pushing against screen. Works really nice.

I know your down south right now. We are going to be at Kissimmee rally in two weeks if you are going to be there you can get a first hand look.
