Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


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.


Unique Features of Blue Ox SwayPro

Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other weight distribution systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.


Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.


Built-In Tension Stops Sway

Blue Ox SwayPro System with Built-In Sway Control Hooked Up

The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

I’m not very happy with my purchase. The weight distribution hitch I purchased does not fit on my trailer. There is a welded support bracket right where the hitch bracket is supposed to go 29 inches back on my trailer. Can the bracket go further back or does it need to go right above the chain? I’ve attached a photo of my issue.


Comments
Yes this blue ox weight distribution system part # BXW1006 does require the brackets to be positioned 29 inches from the hitch ball. Since you have a support bar where the bracket does need to be positioned this weight distribution system will not work for your trailer. I recommend the equalizer system part # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$825.00
. The sway control brackets on the equalizer system can be positioned 27 inches to 32 inches back from the coupler. It handles tongue weight from 700 to 900 pounds and will still allow for backing up. It also includes the 2 5/16 inch ball and shank.

I really like the hitch as far as function and design. My only complaint about it is when spending almost $800 dollars for a piece of equipment you would think it would at least come powder coated rather than painted over poorly/un-prepped metal. The paint is flaking off tow bars in multiple locations and you can see it was never properly adhered. However this is still a mostly cosmetic concern and I am still very pleased overall with the hitch so I still gave it four stars.




by:

This PROSWAY hitch awesome! Set up was easy and the towing experience was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this product. Also, George at e-trailer made sure that we had the hitch in time to pick up our new toy hauler! Thanks for such amazing service.

This set-up is great for a lifted pickup. The BXW gave us the right amount of adjustment for our lifted Dodge 2500!


Comments
Working perfectly!! This is so easy to connect We see others struggling and thank goodness we bought the Blue Ox!!

Exactly the one I need. Quality good as expected and delivered quickly.




by:

Works pretty well. The hitch ball mount sticks out pretty far in the receiver, so some of you might expect to need longer safety chains.




by:

Using it on a RAM 2500 towing a 8000 pound 25 ft Airstream. No sway at all. I like the simplicity and ease of tensioning sway bars. Paint finish could be more durable and mine has rusted, but functionality is not impacted. Would recommend.




by:

Had to replace this hitch due to ineffective sway control. Although, some issue may have been with a new lightweight trailer with low hitch weight.




by:

etrailer was very helpful with my purchase they were able to answer all my questions and good follow up When my order was delivered. The product is excellent installation was easy with good instructions and YouTube videos. Tested
Tonight towing my 30ft travel trailer and
It worked flawlessly no sway smoother ride very happy.




by:

The product is exactly what was described. Assembly and installation was easy. All parts worked perfectly. The only reason for 4 stars is that the packaging was inappropriate. Box was literally falling apart. Delivery person could barely get it to the house as parts were beginning to fall out. Thankfully nothing was missing, but packaging for shipping needs improvement.

Fast delivery with great tracking info. Product arrived in perfect condition.

Came as described. I have not installed it yet.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a good system, though it can require some tinkering when hitching up. Sometimes it's super easy (connect the bars to the receiver, loop the links to the clamps, and rotate until it clicks into place, done!) while occasionally as the ground varies one bar may resist getting loaded and you have to find a level spot to adjust it. We have found the need to change frequently which link its cranked to. In fact, a couple times I've gone to our standard setting but later had to pull over and crank a couple extra links tighter to keep the sway down. That said, it fit all the criteria for the weight range, frame mount points, etc. and has worked over multiple trips and several hundred miles so far.

I would say the powder coating has been pretty durable, there is a bit of rust developing on the clamps where there's been contact with the chains for one year. But the bars, links, and receiver are looking fine overall.

Overall, it wasn't the first model we had our eye on but it fit the situation and we are fairly happy with how it all turned out.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I have used my Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item #BXW1000 now for the past year towing our Airstream 27FB with a Ford F150 over 5000 miles and six weeks of road trips.

For comparison, I had used Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control hitches on three prior travel trailers over eight years - including a prior 27FB.

For comparable levels of weight distribution, I have found:
1. The sway control with the Blue Ox is more of a dampening of sway - making it tolerable, while the Reese seemed to eliminate the sway from starting in the first place. A noticeable difference with crosswinds and passing semis at highway speeds.
2. Tightening and loosening the torsion bars with the supplied wrench and rotating cam of the Blue Ox is more stressful and unpredictable than using the lever pipe and lift bracket for the cam of the Reese. I bought a longer torsion bar and socket to replace the supplied wrench which helps (see photo).
3. While the Reese torsion bars and cams require routine topical application of grease, the Blue Ox torsion bar swivel attachments (see photo) require a grease gun to keep lubricated which is a nuisance.
4. Routine wear on the paint of the Blue Ox cam (see photo) adds rust as a maintenance problem that I didn't have with the Reese systems.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


The blue ox pro weight distribution looks extremely well built. However, When I ordered the kit, I believe it said it did not come with a ball. So I ordered a ball. I now have an extra ball that I don't need. UPS delivered the box and the box was crushed, two holes punctured into the box. Fortunately for me, all the pieces were still in the box. Past that, I'm excited to pull my trailer and see how it does.


Comments
This is included in the product description: System includes head assembly, adjustable shank, spring bars, lift chains, rotating lift brackets with handles, reducer bushing for ball shank, pin and clip, 2 and 5 sixteenth inch hitch ball, and all necessary hardware.

After a year, the hitch assembly is incredible. You dont know how well it is constructed until you see other hitches and the thin material used. I would buy again in a heart beat.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I bought the blue ox weight distribution hitch as an upgrade from my original weight distribution hitch that I purchased from Harbor freight. What a difference!


Comments
Game Changer. I love my Blue Ox WDH. It has worked flawlessly since I purchased and installed it on my trailer. I have towed my 30 foot travel trailer in all kinds of weather including windy conditions and the hitch works great. I used to tow a 22 foot travel trailer with a Harbor Freight WDH, and that trailer would sway without an additional and noisy anti sway bar. The Blue Ox doesnt need one, and even though my new trailer is 8 feet longer, it does not sway much at all. Not only does it keep my 8500 lb trailer straight, it is easy to hook up. I dont dread hooking up like I used to.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I had a question about a "used" version of the BXW1000, so I jumped on the chat with customer service and they were able to answer my questions about what "used" was considered (in this case, damaged packaging/cosmetic defects, nothing structural and the hitch was not used and returned used for resale).

I also asked if all the parts would be in the box, and of course the answer was yes.

I recieved the hitch in very short order (and I received order/shipping updates). The outer box had a good amount of clear packaging tape, but was intact. Upon inspection, the hitch looked (as it was) brand new, and the only blemish I noticed was some overspray from the paint in two of the threaded bolt holes, which was easily removed with a small screwdriver.

Thanks to etrailer for a very smooth ordering/shipping process and to your excellent customer service representatives!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


After much research, I chose this Blue Ox. Liked this style over the others for it's simple use and less clips to lose. My issue was the rear of my KIA was sagging allowing the camper nose to drop. Which in turn made the camper sway. Very simple installation. The object is tweaking it to get both the tow vehicle and camper level and to line the chain up with the bracket mounted on the frame of the trailer/camper. We've taken it out on 1 short trip so far and it has definitely been an improvement. It is quite heavy, but just about all brands are. Read others that said the ball was not included..... mine was! Very pleased with my decision.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I specifically asked what bars to buy and answered questions about dry weight, tongue weight and max trailer weight. I was steered to 1000 lb bars even though that was not even 10% of max trailer weight when 12-15% of max weight is the typical range for tongue weight. I ended up replacing with the next step which was 1500 lb bars. You gave me the wrong answer and it cot me another set of bars and left me no way of recovering what I spent for wrong bars. Bad advice=bad customer service. The only reaso I gave 2 stars is you delivered on time to my rv dealer as instructed.


Comments
Depending on the total tongue weight of the trailer you will want to a weight distribution system where your trailers loaded and unloaded weight will fall into the range of the bars. This system has a tongue weight range of 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs. The next system up will be part number part # BXW1500
Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 15,000 lbs GTW, 1,500 lbs TW

which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs - 1,500 lbs.

This W/D hitch does everything it is supposed to do. It was very easy to set up and my new trailer tows like a dream. Just a hint-- I mark the chains with some paint so I know where to set them.

Towing a 29ft Keystone 7000lb trailer. A LOT quieter than the solid bar style hitch. Easier to set into place too. Takes a little getting use to when attaching the chains in the proper direction and releasing them. Great weight distribution. Fairly good sway control. Happy with the purchase.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


The performance of what it is supposed to do, Weight Distribution and Sway Control, is great.
The parameters which is will be able to be installed on your particular setup is cumbersome and usually involves buying alternate parts. V Nose Trailers also provide challenges (alternate parts). Recommend having a shop install it on both the trailer and vehicle so they work out the exact equipment needed.
The overall longevity of this product -- when left on the trailer -- is leaving me wanting. This equipment does not like to be left in the weather. You will want to uninstall it, clean it, lubricate it and store it in a controlled environment. Oxidation is strong with this equipment.


Comments
You will definitely want to grease the 2 grease zerks inside the head assembly often. As well as lubricate any moving part that is in the elements. For more rust prevention tips, see the attached help article:

Easy installation after purchasing a couple of specific tools: A big adjustable wrench, a Torque wrench and a 1 1/2 socket to be able to remove and reinstall the hitch ball.
Easy to follow instructions.

  • Is 1" of Rear Sag on 2012 Ford F-250 Okay When Using Weight Distribution System
    From everything you've said it looks like you have a properly rated and set up Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution (WD) System, like part # BXW1006. You want to shoot for as close to stock height as possible for your tow vehicle but it's basically impossible so the best case scenario is getting it within an inch which is what you've accomplished. Have fun camping and if you have any other questions just let us know!

  • What is the Correct Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for a 2019 Grand Design TT
    The correct Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for you is most likely part # BXW1006 which is rated for 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs of total tongue weight. This system was chosen based off of the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer. The total tongue weight is composed of the loaded tongue weight of the trailer and the weight of any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. This system in particular also comes with a longer shank which will most likely be needed...

  • Does the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System Count as Tongue Weight
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW1006 weighs around 95 lbs. It will actually become part of the vehicle's frame once installed therefore does not count towards tongue weight capacity. Please keep in mind that this system is designed for a total tongue weight of 750 - 1,000 lbs. The total tongue weight of a towing setup is calculated by adding the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer to any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

    For a Blue Ox weight distribution system the part # BXW1006 would be a great option for the unloaded tongue weight you mentioned since by the time it's loaded up it would be up into it's range of 750-1,000 lbs. If you wanted my favorite recommendation though it would be the Strait Line part # RP66084 which has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs and features best sway control at preventing sway before it starts.

  • Recommended Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for 5000 lb Travel Trailer
    The 570 lb figure you mention is the dry tongue weight, but in order to choose the correct weight distribution system for your needs you'll need to determine the travel trailer's tongue weight when it's loaded up as it would be when you tow it, complete with gear, propane, water tanks, etc. You'll also want to add the weight of anything carried in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle to that figure, which is the amount of tongue weight you'll be asking your W/D system to handle. I'll...

  • Recommended Replacement Shank for Blue Ox Sway Control With Larger Rise or Drop
    To use the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1000 with a vehicle that has a different height, you don't need to replace the entire system, you just may need a longer shank for increased rise or drop. I recommend using the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 12" Long - 9 Hole Adjustment # BXW4003.

  • Weight Distribution System With Sway Control for a 3500 Pound and 7000 Pound Trailer
    I have a solution for you, but the system for the 7000 pound trailer will be too rigid for the 3500 pound trailer, and cause the trailer to lose a lot of performance. Prior to purchase you'll want to verify your trailer's tongue weight to make sure that these systems are appropriate for your applications. I've included a help article about finding your tongue weight so you can verify your weights. However, Blue Ox's weight distribution systems are built so that you can swap trunnion arms...

  • Recommended Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution for Towing a GVWR 7,475 Trailer with a 2017 Ram 2500
    When determining what rise/drop you need for a towing setup you just take the height from the ground to top of the inside of the receiver on your tow vehicle and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler (when it is level). In your case it sounds like you need a drop of 3-1/2" with a max of 5-1/2" if you were just measuring to the top of your trailer coupler. The Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW0756 you referenced actually has a max drop of 7" so it would allow your towing setup to...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Sway Pro System For 7700 lb GVWR Toy Hauler
    Total tongue weight is what you determine a weight distribution based on. This includes the loaded tongue weight of the trailer that is typically 10-15 percent of the GVWR as well as any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Based on the information you gave, the best Blue Ox Sway Pro system for your application is the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # BXW1006. This will give you the adjustability you need for...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for V-nose trailer and Short Pole Tongue A-Frame Trailer
    There is not an easy bolt on option for your short pole tongue into A-frame or V-nose trailer. You will need to do some frame customization to ensure a proper fit on each trailer. There is not a system we carry that will work without customization of your frames. For the most economical option, I recommend the Pro Series Weight Distribution System # 49570 with Friction Sway Control # 83660. The friction bar of this system needs to be mounted 24 inches back from the center of the hitch...

  • Blue Ox SwayPro VS TrackPro Weight Distribution System
    I would recommend that Blue Ox TrackPro # BLU77FR simply because it does not have lift chains like the SwayPro # BXW1006. Both will do a great job but the TrackPro will have a little less movement because of the absence of drop chains. Blue Ox is a popular brand and most other competitors are around the same quality if not a little less.
