Pro Pride Hitch

All,
Looking at buying an XLR Viper bumper pull at 34' and 9,000 lbs empty for pulling with the Burb in my sig. I have read about the Hensley Hitch and the Pro Pride hitch, and have decided to buy the Pro Pride hitch as I'm near capacity on the 3/4 Burb in terms of stability. Anyone used a Hensley or Pro Pride hitch and care to share their experiences. It seems the only downside to these hitches are their cost. I am looking to use a Pro Pride hitch and Tekonsha P3 for towing up to 11,000 lbs in the trailer loaded.
Any feedback appreciated.

Thanks

11,000 pounds PLUS 9,000 empty weight??? or 11,000 combined? If it's the former, you are clearly way over weight.

Premis,
I am talking a 9,100 lb trailer that loaded will not exceed 11,000 total lbs.

I think my 480LE with Heath's TCC locker in the ECU Reflash, as well as a shift kit should handle this load, I will monitor Trans Temp but have been told it seems to stay low. Thanks for sharing, your trailer is almost exactly the same parameters as the one I'm looking at.

Re: Pro Pride Hitch

You will love the hitch...... It marries truck and trailer..... No sway at all...... Can still get a little push but every thing moves together
