Moving up from a Toyota Van pulling a pup to a SUV pulling a 30' TT, I decided to go with a ProPride 3P Hitch system to keep my family safe on our weekend trips and on our annual 2000 miles round trip from Montreal to Myrtle Beach.
Knowing my manual limitations, I had my RV dealer do the installation. Problem is that his tech did an amateur job and I finally completed the installation myself (although paying for 3 hrs at $135/hr). At least they had already done the "major" modifications that consisted in moving the propane tanks and the battery.
It has now been over 2 months since I have my new TT and the PP3P and I still have 2 unresolved issues:
1- The weight distribution jacks are made for the wide 2 3/8 in frames while my Wildwood XLite has a 2in frame, causing the jacks to move and bend the side of my trailer's frame. Sean promissed to send me some shim plates a couple of months back but still hasn't acted on his promise...
2- The bottom of the drop hitch bar occassionnaly hits the pavement on uneven turf. My SUV sits lower than the trailer so in order to get a 2in raise, I reversed the hitch bar. The way the adjustable hitch bar is setup, I have bottom part at only 4in off the ground. Currently inquiring on either cutting off the excess or on maybe getting a stinger made by Hensley, if its compatible.
All in all, great product that does do what it promises: NO SWAY. But its still needs some improvement before I can tag this as the "perfect" hitch system... I also have some concerns on their customer service. A lot of emails have gone unanswered (ignored).
If I had to redo this, I would most probably go the Hensley route instead, especially now that I know I need a 2" offset. I guess I just expected more for the money I dished out...
