Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are on the road more often than not and want to invest in the top-of-the-line system
  • Often encounter strong crosswinds that push you off the road - this is hands-down the best at eliminating trailer sway
  • Have a trailer with 1,000 lbs – 1,400 lbs of tongue weight

No, if you:

  • Have limited space on the frame at the nose of your trailer
  • Are close to maxing out the amount of tongue weight your tow vehicle can handle - this will add about 100 lbs
  • Have only had occasional or mild issues with your trailer getting pushed around and can't justify the price tag

If you're checking out the ProPride 3P system, chances are good that you're experiencing pretty bad sway. Maybe it happens every time your rig catches wind or you get passed on the highway. You may also have a hard time steering because of the effort it takes to just keep your setup on the road.

You've probably already tried moving weight around in your trailer and feathering the manual override on your brake controller in the moment. You may have even installed a weight distribution system with some type of sway control, but nothing seems to work.

The ProPride 3P hitch might just be the solution you've been searching for. This system will take the white-knuckling out of towing so you can actually enjoy your adventures.

Proven to Eliminate Sway

The ProPride 3P is designed with Pivot Point Projection technology that simulates the experience you'd get if towing a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer. It does this by moving the pivot point of your trailer from the hitch ball, where your coupler connects, forward toward the rear axle of your tow vehicle. This drastically improves the stability of your rig and keeps the trailer firmly in line behind your truck.

Towing with the ProPride 3P Weight Distribution System

In order to project the pivot point forward, the ProPride is built with a hitch box and yoke that encases your trailer's coupler to lock out certain movements. When a force, such as crosswinds, tries to push your trailer out of line, this setup prevents any rotation at the hitch ball. The unit still allows the trailer to pivot at the ball when your tow vehicle initiates a turn, though, so navigating with the ProPride is seamless.

How the ProPride Compares to Other Hitches

Many sway control hitches use steel-on-steel friction to reduce sway, forcing your trailer back in line only after sway begins. In addition to being reactive rather than proactive - meaning that these steel spring bar brackets can only correct, not prevent sway - this type of sway control is often very noisy.

The pivoting and pendulum-like movement of the ProPride system, however, makes it far more effective than other sway control systems on the market. This hitch is able to prevent sway from occurring at all, rather than simply correcting unwanted movement after it's already begun. And it's able to do this quietly, with no scraping, screeching, or popping as you tow.

The ProPride outshines other systems as well, including those that also claim to prevent sway. Jim Hensley, the designer of the ProPride 3P, also designed the Hensley Arrow back in the day. The 3P is his newest take on that older hitch, and it's engineered to eliminate many of the problems customers were experiencing with his previous designs - it's sturdier, won't warp, and doesn't require drilling for installation.

Hitching Up with the ProPride 3P

One of the best things about the 3P system is that it stays on your trailer, which makes hooking up quick and painless when compared to standard weight distribution systems.

Standard systems require that you unhook and remove everything each time you finish towing. And then when you're ready to go again, you have to grab the super-heavy shank with the system head - unless you leave that monster in your hitch because of how awkward removing it is - and insert it back into your receiver. Then, once you're hooked back up, you have to reinstall the spring bars, jack your trailer up, and snap the bars into place (which can be dangerous). And if your truck and trailer aren't looking level, you might have to take it all apart to adjust the washers in the system head or to swap out links on the spring bar chains.

The whole thing is a real chore.

Once you've installed the 3P system on your trailer, though, hitching up is easy by comparison. Just insert the adjustable shank into your hitch and back your tow vehicle up so that the stinger on the shank is within 2" of the receiver on the ProPride head.

Hitching the ProPride - Inserting the stinger into the receiver

Raise or lower your trailer with your tongue jack (sold separately) until the stinger of the adjustable shank is centered with the receiver on the head. Then slowly back your tow vehicle up until the stinger inserts into the receiver.

While the trailer and truck should ideally be level during hitching, some terrains make it impossible. ProPride can hitch up on uneven terrain or at odd angles. The main unit can pivot left and right, and the shape of the stinger helps seat it in the hitch. Once the stinger is inserted, the over-the-center latches will need to be secured. Then you're ready for your journey!

Helpful Tips for Hitching:

  • Try warming your truck up for a few minutes before hooking up. This can prevent it from lurching, making hitching smoother and easier.
  • Using a bit of silicone lubricant (sold separately) on the shank can help protect the powder coating on the ProPride when you hitch up.
  • Adding a little dot of white paint to the top of the stinger and to the inside of the ProPride receiver can help you see it better in your backup camera as you reverse toward your trailer.

Weight distribution jacks adjust independently

Occasionally, depending on how your trailer is loaded, you may need to adjust the weight distribution jacks on this system. These jacks are what connect the spring bars to your trailer. And they are easy to operate with the included 3/4" ratchet (but you can use the 3/4" adapter on your drill too). Where other systems require unloading the tongue weight by raising the trailer end of your rig with the tongue jack, these weight distribution jacks let you easily adjust the system with or without tongue weight simply by ratcheting the jacks to raise or lower the spring bars.

High-Quality Construction

Spring bars stay on the unit

ProPride has reinforced components for durability. The steel is also pretreated to prepare it for a powder coat that resists chipping and corrosion. The spring bars are mounted into the main unit with custom bushings for a perfect fit that allows minimal movement.

Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.

To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.

Eliminate trailer sway and ensure a level, stable ride with this premium sway control hitch with weight distribution. Provides the same level of control and smooth towing you would experience with a 5th wheel. 2-5/16" Hitch ball included.


i took a while trying to decide on the Propride hitch. $xxxx is a lot of money for a hitch, but I tow my horses thousands of miles a year, and their safety always comes first. It took me about 8 hours to install the entire hitch, and that includes taking the shank apart 3 times to get the height correct. I found the shank height measurements were basically a starting point. It was too hard to plan for the sag in the truck without actually hooking it up. The quality and packaging of the unit was first rate. The instructions were good but the videos on line really help, especially the videos that show how to hitch up. It took a few tries, but once you figure it out its easy. Just don't forget to release all the pressure from the jacks when hitching and unhitching or you won't get anywhere. The hitch looks confusing and intimidating at first, but it's really not. My trailer ended up within a half inch of being level, and the adjustable jacks that control the amount of equalizer leverage are just brilliant. You measure your original truck ride height, then just adjust the jacks until its the same as it was. Perhaps that explains why it feels so good towing. Its possible my old weight distribution setup was not set correctly, but this one is. It feels amazing pulling the trailer now. I have a 2022 ford f450 with a 3200 pound camper on back, and use the Torquelift super hitch with the truss extension. This combination of the super hitch and now the Propride are the best I can get, and it works.


I wouldn’t even consider a different hitch to pull my camper with!!!

  • Minimum Clearance for Installation of ProPride 3P Weight Distribution Hitch
    I reached out to ProPride and found that the # PR97QR requires the tongue (top of coupler) to have a minimum height of 18” when the trailer is measured level front to rear. According to ProPride, the 3P sits approximately 11” from the bottom of the coupler once installed. The # PR97QR has a tongue weight range of 850-1,400 lbs, so as long as your loaded tongue weight is somewhere in the middle of that range this will work well for you.

  • ProPride 3P Weight Distribution Hitch w/ Sway Control for 2" Receivers Hitch Lock Recommendation
    The best way to lock the ProPride 3P Weight Distribution Hitch w/ Sway Control for 2" Receivers # PR97QR is going to be with a locking hitch pin like the etrailer hitch lock part # e98882.

    Thank you for the kind words and for reaching out! You are correct that neither Air Lift or Firestone (Ride-Rite) make an air bag kit for your 2022 GMC Yukon at this time (December 2022) but that's actually okay because a weight distribution hitch (WDH) system will do a better job at leveling the load and giving you more control. Air bags will level the system but the weight will still be pressing down at the tongue while a WDH actually distributes the loaded tongue weight of the trailer...
