The 3P hitch is the most advanced trailer sway eliminating, Jim Hensley hitch design on the market. It's industry leading design and innovation is second to none. The quality of the workmanship and service behind the product draws rave reviews from customers across North America.
The standard 3P hitch package includes a 2" hitch bar. If you wish to upsize to fit a larger receiver you click the button above for the size.
The main unit comes with a 2-5/16" hitch ball installed. A 2" ball is available for smaller trailers.
The total weight of the 3P hitch is 195 lbs. This is approximately 75-100 lbs more than most conventional hitches so that is the difference you will see in hitch weight.
To figure the model you will need you should estimate your loaded HITCH weight. Tongue weight is not hitch weight. Tongue weight is the force the trailer applies to the hitch ball. Hitch weight is the tongue weight plus the weight of your equipment. It does not hurt anything to pick the 3P model that exceeds your estimated hitch weight as most dry tongue weights are heavier than listed by manufacturers and the higher 3P model will give you more top end capacity in your weight distribution.
The number on each 3P model indicates the weight distribution capacity of each model. For example, a 3P-1000 can adequately distribute UP TO 1000 pounds of loaded hitch weight.
Fixed shipping rate of $215 applies to continental 48 states only.
Shipping to Alaska is an additional charge.

I've started RV/camping with an EAZ LIFT 48058 WDH with chains and a removable sway control bar. I didn't know what I was doing. This cheap WDH didn't control weight distribution with the chains, and I also had to remove the sway control bars to back up. It didn't even do a good job managing sway as well! I finally upgraded to an Equal-i-zer 4-point WDH as it seemed to be the gold standard for friction-based hitches. While it improved my tow experience, I was on a mission to fix the sway since it still happened. I installed Timben SES bump stops, new Bilstein 5100 shocks, and an add-a-leaf spring. They did help with stability, but with windy conditions, I would still get sway. Since I was on vacation trying to relax, I finally was over it. I want my trips to be enjoyable. When I started camping, I initially put off Hensley, and ProPride hitches due to the cost and thought people were ridiculous for buying them. The ProPride is the upgrade to the Hensley. Even though my travel trailer was within the limits of my truck, it was either upgrade to a bigger truck or give ProPride a chance; I tried the expensive hitch and installed it. The install took some time but was worth it. Tow has been completely eliminated, and it is no longer an ordeal -- I can finally relax while towing! Definitely worth the big pile of cash.
Towed my 32’ trailer with a 1 ton truck with all the bells and whistles via standard hitch and expedition with the P3 installed. The expedition with P3 towed significantly better (except for gas mileage of course) than the 1 ton truck thanks to the P3. Will never tow larger/heavier trailers with any other hitch regardless of tow vehicle! Customer service is outstanding and any setup struggles are easily dispatched. Piece of mind is worth every penny.
Since owning our 25' Airstream trailer we have put about 12000 miles on it - the first 8300 miles with a "common" weight distribution hitch and the rest with a ProPride 3P. We decided to spend the money as we really like our very light F150 truck but didn't like the tension we felt driving with lots of semis or cross winds (or both) and the sway we had to always be ready to compensate for. After switching to the ProPride hitch we find ourselves driving with a light touch on the wheel even in a herd of semis with a cross wind. We barely can feel most semis and a cross wind feels just like the truck is in the wind but not towing. The description folks give of the truck and trailer feeling like a single unit has proven very accurate. We have decided that the money was well spent. The only downside is that we still have some learning to do about connecting the hitch on uneven ground but that will come.
At this point I am satisfied with the P3 hitch. Installation was very strait forward and easy. Pulled my RV approximately 200 miles with wind gust reaching 35-40 MPH. I felt like I was in control the entire trip. I also weighed my axels to verify my set up. Front axel was just over 4k, rear axel was just at 5k, and tandems on the trailer were 10.5k. This tells me that my set up with the hitch is good. I would recommend this hitch, especially in situations where you are pulling a large rv like mine. Jayco Eagle 39' 9" over 10k.
