Mine is labeled PRO series from Plymouth, MI. Guess that's the brand.

My first was a Blue Ox Sway Pro. Worked fine but a bit of work. Next was a ProPride which turned out to be an expensive PITA. Replaced it with an Equalizer and it's a snap to hook up. The TV is a dually, so I might have a different opinion of all three if it was just a SRW.

What did you find difficult about the PP if you don't mind me asking. I've had an HA and a PP and think they're both a snap. Granted, with a big dually you probably don't need one, but im just curious. After using this style for so long, in the vast majority of cases I think they're just as easy or easier.

Back up cameras on the TV really help.

Hitching up wasn't the problem, that was much easier than it looks. The shape of the front end of my Eagle wouldn't allow proper placement of the hitch on the A frame, that is, to be mounted as far forward as necessary so that the jacks could clear the body if cranked to the needed height, even after having moved the propane tanks plate forward to the tongue jack. The J hooks became L hooks, continuous adjustments were needed. Chains were suggested to replace the jacks, if I recall correctly, but having paid over $2k for what was supposed to be the best, I had had enough and chose not to begin rebuilding it. It's sitting in my barn if someone wants it..

Old thread/poll revival as I had not voted before. I am currently using a round bar WDH with a reese friction bar but that will be set aside and replaced with a Propride 3P. I ordered it the other day and will be installing and setting up as soon as it arrives. I hope to not have to deal with sway again!
