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 have 2 trailers and had this on a 34 foot travel trailer that weighs 9200 fully loaded. The weight distribution and sway control was subpar at best. My husky centerline rode better and controlled sway and weight distribution. Had to put this on the smaller of our travel trailers because it didn't do the job.

Have been using this hitch for one year now. We have had zero issues, it is easy to use. Satisfied!

@William We're glad to hear your # BXW2003 Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution hitch is working well for you!


by:

Significantly better than the one the RV dealer sold us with the camper. 2000# hitch handles the 39 foot toyhauler flawlessly. Lots of adjustment ability with it.



by:

Very nice product. Extremely heavy duty and powder coat finish is great! Thank you e-trailer for the videos and for getting the product out the door quickly.



by:

Haven't opened the product yet, but etrailer's service was phenomenal. It took less than 5 minutes to order the product, and within an hour of the purchase I got an email saying the hitch had shipped. I was expecting a delay with the current events taking place, but I was shocked to have the hitch on my porch the very next day.



by:

Very well made easy installation seems to work well on short test drive will know more when I travel the Interstate highway

Fast shipping. Exactly what I wanted



by:

The individual I worked with over the phone was extremely helpful. The shipping was rapid. Have not put it together so obviously not used as yet. From the appreciated service received I have every reason it will accomplish my goals.

Haven’t done a long trip to compare away control. Just installed. Cons first: On an Airstream Globetrotter 25 FBT, it is impossible to get a socket in between the A frame and the battery box to use a torque wrench to measure 40 lbs when tightening the jam bolt. Plus it’s a square bolt head. But it’s only 40 lbs, so we hand tightened hard. Also, when tightening the jam bolt, the chain latch thingy (I’m tired. It’s hot out there!) moved a bit so either hang onto it really well or move it a bit before tightening down and it will move right back to its 29 inch place.

Now the pros: The whole assembly weighs far less than the equalizer we replaced. Installation was easier. No washers so once the hitch head height was determined, we only had to torque once. If we need to adjust weight distribution, we move the chain. My husband compared the two installations like this: “This was junior high math while the equalizer was like college calculus."
And, FWIW, the front and rear end difference in height for our truck and trailer was way more accurate than we could get with the equalizer. Well, maybe we could have, but we would have had to adjust the hitch head and the washers.
The cherry on top was that it was very quiet turning and backing up.



by:

Shipped as promised. Came with everything. Installed per excellent instructions.
Works very well on 21 chevy tahoe towing 6000lb 25 ft travel trailer.
Works as advertised. Havnt been in crosswinds, but trucks passing and meeting, hitch has good control. Load leveling works excellent.



by:

The Blue OX weight distribution hitch is the way to go. With the sway control built in it makes the system more manageable and easy to use. The bars are straight instead of an L for easier storage and the chain tensioner is much easier to load then the typical system that requires going over a high center. I bolted the tensioners to my frame but the standard mount works fine.



by:

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.

Bought a 30’ enclosed race car trailer with 1.5’ extra height and pulled it back from Dallas, Tx. with my 3500 DuraMax with no weight distribution hitch! It was not a pleasant drive. I weighted the tongue when I got home and came in at 1650# empty. Got this hitch, BX2000, loaded trailer with car, tools, fuel, generator, and did not re-weight tongue but estimate to be at least 2k. Pulls completely different! Sway is almost nothing. My old trailer was a 50’ goose neck which pulled better but was much heavier and harder for the truck to pull. This hitch will make the difference in a heavy tongue weight bumper pull trailer

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.



by:

This Blue Ox sway control hitch has works well on our trailer. It's heavy, but easy to hook up and use.

My only complaint is with the external finish. The finish on the bars began to flake off almost immediately. Other areas are also showing signs of surface rust.

That said, it does the job it's intended to do, with ease



by:

I have been using the Blue Ox SwayPro WD Hitch for 1,500 tongue weight on our 30' Arctic Fox travel trailer for one year now. No regrets as this hitch has been an easy to setup and use and it seems to do it's job nicely. Due to the height of our trailer's hitch I ordered a Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank to use with the SwayPro and the pair work great together.



by:

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.



by:

I had the unfortunate experience with having your new airstream 20' taken out by a hydroplaning car last month. The airstream rolled right and on to its side, and the hitch released keeping our Suburban from rolling. The stabilizer bars and chains maintained the trailer connection and eased the stop with the rear tires of ground. The hitch bent the receiver on the truck, and the only damage appeared to be one " sprung" spring bar. A good result from a bad experience!
