My answer to this question is if I ever went back to a travel trailer again I would never tow it without one, or the Propride version.

Yes the hitch works. I currently use a ProPride towing a 35ft Flagstaff VLite with Ford F150 Ecoboost 5.5 ft bed. I towed this trailer approx. 7K miles in high winds and in the mountains. No sway issues.

If you do a search on hensley or pro pride you will see that people are very happy with them.

Yes, the Hensley Arrow works as advertised. Sway is eliminated. Hensley sells reconditioned (like new) hitches from time to time. New hitches have a lifetime guaranty.

I've had mine since the mid nineties and have moved it from each trailer I bought, I consider it one of the smartest investment I ever made, there is no sway to control it works great.

We just bought a one year old ProPride for $1200 on Craigslist, and after all the reviews I've read, can't wait to install it. We are towing a 2012 Grey Wolf 28bh with a 2007 Durango (Hemi) and with the D's short wheelbase the Reese dual cam just didn't cut it.

If a guy that knew how to fabricate and had time , I bet he could build a hitch like the Hensley or pro-pride. And save a bundle .

I get how well they work for sway control one question I really haven't seen addressed was WD.

If you have a heavy TT say around 10K with a 1400LB hitch how well do they do with the transfer of the weight?
