Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Weight Distribution Pole Tongue Adapter - BXW4023

Hi, there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Blue Ox pole tongue weight distribution hitch adapter. This is going to allow you to mount your weight distribution system with the over-the-frame style brackets onto your straight tongue trailer. So, it's basically going to adapt your straight tongue trailer into more of like an A-frame trailer so that your brackets will mount properly. And you can use that weight distribution system to then, obviously, help keep your trailer in line.

This will work with tongue widths from three and three-quarters of an inch to four and a half inches. It will also work with tongue heights from three inches to six inches. So, make sure that that's going to fit your application. It's also going to have a maximum tongue weight of 2000 pounds. So, again, make sure that's going to work for you.

But overall, I think this is going to do a great job of making sure that your straight tongue trailer is still compatible with your weight distribution system, so you can keep that trailer in line. This is made here in the USA, so you can trust it's made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. So, if you do have that straight tongue trailer, you're wanting to add your weight distribution system, this is going to be exactly what you need. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com.

Thanks for watching..

The item fits on the Ice Castle but it’s as far forward as it goes and still 4 incytqo far back. It will work but not as it should. It needs to be tappered to match the parallel bars.

Great product! Exactly what I was looking for to use with my hitch extension for my boat trail and camper set up.

Attachment is less than inspiring but hasn't come off so...

  • Adding Weight Distribution and Sway to a Straight Frame Boat Trailer
    For your Magic Tilt Boat Trailer you will need a Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter # BXW4023. This will bolt around the Pole frame with a width of 2-3/4" to 4-1/2" and height of 3" to 6". It will then allow you to use a weight distribution hitch that utilizes over frame brackets. I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW0556. This system will allow you to back up your boat trailer without removal and will not interfere with the surge...

  • Recommended Weight Distributing Hitch for Pole Tongue Trailer with 500 Lb Tongue Weight
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW0550 is a great option for a trailer with 500 lbs of tongue weight. It has industry leading sway control as well as weight distributing properties. It can be installed on a pole tongue trailer using the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter part # BXW4023 so long as the tongue is between 2-3/4" to 4-1/2" wide and 3" to 6" tall. This system is completely bolt-on with no modifications required. The pole tongue adapter...

  • Weight Distribution & Pole Tongue Adapter Recommendation For 7k - 8k Boat & Trailer
    Thanks for the photo, and you can use a pole-tongue adapter on your trailer, so long as A) it is not a swing-away tongue (which it certainly doesn't look like your trailer has but I do need to mention) and B) you are able to position the adapter approximately 29 inches back from the center of the coupler, and I can't quite tell from your photo if you can mount the adapter at that position. So I do recommend checking just to verify, and if you can, the best option for your boat and trailer...

  • What Sway Control Adapter Do You Recommend for My 9 x 7 ATV Trailer?
    For a great sway control accessory for your straight-tongue trailer, I recommend the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter # BXW4023. The Blue Ox adapter fits tongue widths of 2-3/4 inches - 4-1/2 inches and heights of 3-6 inches. As far as the actual sway control system, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution systems. However, without knowing the total weight capacity that you need, I need to know the tongue weight capacity of your trailer with loaded cargo....

  • Sway Control Option For Straight Tongue Trailer
    There are a couple of options to add sway control to your boat trailer with a straight tongue, but pole tongue adapters are not compatible with friction sway control bars because they don't allow proper turning clearance. So that leaves a couple of options for you, the easiest and most economical of which is an electronic sway control unit. This is only compatible with electric trailer brakes, which I assume your boat trailer does have because friction sway control is not compatible with...

  • Recommended Wight Distribution For Boat Trailer With 1200 lb Tongue Weight
    Woah, that's a pretty heavy boat! Weight distribution systems are typically rated by the range of tongue weights they can cover. If you've positively confirmed the as-loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your boat to be 1200 lbs (see linked article which explains how to determine this), then the # BLU27FR Blue Ox TrackPro you'd looked at would work great for you. The # BLU27FR is compatible with trailers having tongue weights ranging from 1000-1300 lbs. You'll also need a pole tongue...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter and Blue Ox Weight Distribution that Can Be Used B and B Deck Over Trailer
    The Blue Ox Pole Tongue Adapter part # BXW4023 does fit your frame dimensions and capacity so it would work well with the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW2000 which has a 20k capacity like you are wanting. The clamps would then go over the top of the pole tongue adapter and clamp to them. Then for a cushioned weight distribution shank you'd want the part # 325-GH-1302 for if you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch.

  • Weight Distribution With Sway Control Set Up for a Pole Tongue Trailer
    Adding weight distribution to the pole tongue on your 2018 Hymer Touring GT travel trailer with a 3200 lb gross trailer weight rating and a 300 lb tongue weight requires a pole tongue adapter. The adapter allows you to use weight distribution by giving the arms somewhere to attach on the trailer side. I recommend the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter Item # BXW4023. It offers a 2000 lb max tongue weight and fits 2-3/4" to 4-1/2 inch tongue widths. It is also a steel...

  • Weight Distribution With Sway Control For 7,000 lb Trailer & Blue Ox Pole Tongue Adapter
    We can get your 7,000 lb GVWR trailer set up with a weight distribution hitch and sway control that will work superbly with the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter # BXW4023. I did want to mention that with an aluminum trailer you will want to contact the trailer manufacturer to make sure weight distribution can be used, as not all manufacturers of aluminum trailers allow it. Assuming you get the go-ahead, with a 7,000 lb GVWR your loaded tongue weight will be in the...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter For Using A Weight Distribution and Sway Hitch With a Boat Trailer Surge Brakes
    Yes, the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter # BXW4023 can be used to install a weight distribution system on your boat trailer that has surge brakes. You will need to make sure that the weight distribution system that you are looking at is compatible with surge brakes and attaches to the trailer frame with over the frame style brackets. A system like the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW0550 has these brackets and is compatible with a surge brake...

  • Recommended Pole Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution System on a Boat Trailer
    I spoke with my rep at Blue Ox and checked Reese's website both the Chain Hangers you mentioned item # BXW4023 and the Reese item # RP58393 only work with chain hanging type weight distribution systems. Since you were looking at the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control item # BLU47FR which has an 600 lbs - 800 lbs tongue weight range, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control item # BXW0756. This system will be better suited for you boat trailer....

  • Pole Tongue Adapters Available for Weight Distribution Systems
    If you didn't want to go with an Equal-i-zer weight distribution system you wouldn't want to use their pole tongue adapter but we do have the Reese option part # RP58393 which allows you to use a Reese system and we also have a Blue Ox adapter part # BXW4023 as well. Basically you need to match the brand of pole tongue adapter to the brand of the weight distribution you go with. If you can get me the tongue weight of your trailer I can then help pick you out a system that would work well...

  • Compatibility of Weight Distribution Pole Tongue Adapters with Surge Brake Hydraulic Trailer Coupler
    Which weight distribution system were you planning on using? Chain-suspended type weight distribution systems don't work with surge couplers, because the tension on the chains inhibits the movement of the actuator making the brakes less effective. If you're using a system where the spring bars contact brackets that attach to the trailer frame like # EQ37140ET or the Blue Ox TrackPro # BLU27FR that don't use chains, the system along with a pole tongue adapter like the # BXW4023 you'd looked...

  • Compatibility of Fastway FA94-00-1000 Weight Distribution Kit with Blue Ox BXW40 Pole Tongue Adapter
    As shown in the provided photo, the Blue Ox # BXW4023 pole tongue adapter clamps around the trailer frame, and won't require any drilling into the frame of the trailer. The adapter will work with the Fastway # FA94-00-1000 weight distribution, but the side plates of the adapter would need to be drilled to accept the frame brackets of the Fastway system. Blue Ox states that their SwayPro W/D systems are compatible with their SwayPro, but as you've found they don't always work very well...

  • Weight Distribution System and Pole-Tongue Adapter Recommendation for 9,500 lb Boat Trailer
    For your application I recommend going with the Curt MV Weight Distribution (WD) # C17057 instead of the Curt # 17302 because the part you mentioned is only rated for up to 1,000 lbs tongue weight while the MV I recommended is rated for 1,000 lbs - 1,400 lbs tongue weight. Since you take into account the loaded tongue weight of the trailer with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your Chevy Silverado this would be a much more safe option. In my experience boat trailers tend...
