Is this right For you? Product Expert Lindsey S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Grease zerks in the head make for easy maintenance
  • Basic, bar-style friction sway control will help push your trailer back in line when it sways
  • Everything's included, even a pre-torqued hitch ball

No, if you:

  • Chains don't provide much tension or stability, so sway is still bound to occur
  • Round bars don't provide as much ground clearance as trunnion, so you won't want this if you tow with a van or low-riding car
  • Can't reverse, use in inclement weather, or pair with surge brakes because of the friction sway control
Keep your trailer in line with this system that uses a telescoping bar with friction pads to correct trailer sway. Built-in grease zerks in the head provide simple maintenance. Includes an adjustable shank and pre-torqued 2-5/16" hitch ball. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from CURT.

Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more 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.


Friction Sway Control

The included friction-style sway control unit reduces trailer sway caused by winds, passing traffic, curving roads, or sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install the unit, simply mount the ball-and-plate assembly to your trailer's frame with the included self-tapping screws, and attach the sway control ball to the head of your weight distribution hitch. Then attach the bar to both of the balls and secure it in place with the included clips.


Forged Steel Spring Bars

The round spring bars are made from forged steel, giving them a distinct advantage over typical cast steel bars. Forging is a process where thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is more resilient to impacts and is stronger in terms of shear strength. Simply put, these spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.


Built-In Grease Zerks

Built-in grease zerk on the Curt weight distribution system head assembly

The system's head features 2 built-in grease zerks so that you can easily lubricate the spring bars without having to remove them from the head assembly. The grease zerks are located on each of the shafts that encase the spring bars. Simply use a grease gun (sold separately) to inject grease into each of the zerks.

Had to buy a longer drop shank, but this setup made towing my 34' enclosed across country safe and easy. Great product. I would buy again if i needed a weight distribution and anti sway for bumper pull trailer. Leveling and anti sway is great

Overall this is a good weight distribution hitch. I had a previous hitch but I needed a higher rating so I got this one. I stuck with the curt brand because I liked my old one so much. I have towed my campers from Ohio all the way to Texas, Florida, Colorado, and Maine. I will have to say I will stay with the Curt brand but there are a few things they could fix. PROS: easy assembly Torsion bars are easy to put in Very sturdy Sway control works like a charm(no creaking eitber) CONS: Hard to pull on the release for the torsion bar Very small notch where the chains sit and they keep slipping when i try to pull the chains up for tension

Great cutomer service. I was missing a few items and it was addressed immediately. I will use etrailer for all my towing needs!!

Works as expected, nothing over and above normal. The first time I used it one of the spring clips that retain the torsion bar in the sleeve broke and I was directed to buy a repair clip. Not impressed!

Pretty pathetic service from etrailer. Order place on Aug 25th with ETA of the following Friday (1o days). But nope, I wait. It finally (and supposedly ships) on Sept 7th (13 days later). On Sept 14th I received a confirmation that my items were delivered, but nope. Not to my house anyway. Avoid these folks if you want something to arrive when they say it will arrive.


Comments
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

This thing shipped so fast! The box was almost completely destroyed when it arrived, which is no fault of etrailer, curt should just invest in heavier duty cartons to ship their products in. All pieces were still there though and is exactly as ordered. As far as the weight distribution hitch itself, it's a great hitch and works beautifully. I personally use 2 anti sways to get the most out of this hitch since it's able to utilize two. One of the best budget friendly weight distribution hitches on the market.

Great hitch. It was easy to put together and it handled our trailer well.

Couldn’t be happier with this product. Works as advertised. I was told by some people that I would get what I paid for, meaning I needed to spend $500 to $600 to get quality, not in this case. I tow a 30 foot camper with a Dodge Ram 1500 with no issues at all. I wish I had a picture of the truck without the weight distributor hooked up....it’s not good!!!

Product arrived super fast. Customer service was on point! All parts were accounted for. I have not towed with it yet but will write another review once i do



- C17063
by:

It performs as expected. Took alot of the sway out of the trailer. Kind of bulky to rig up and the trailer frame rails don't provide adequate room to place the sway bar receiver. Does work well once setup.



- C17063
by:

Perfect,as described,fast shipping.Box extremely heavy and I can see why some of the boxes get damage during shipping.No fault from etrailer, maybe Curt can make it a two box shipment to lighten the weight per box. Excellent product.

I was very happy with my overall experience. The product arrived a day early and suits my needs perfectly.

I This hitch will work great on a 4 inch trailer frame. I had to go and buy longer chains to get this hitch to work on my 6 inch frame trailer. The chains that came with the hitch were to short for a 6 inch frame. Other then that, it works great.



- C17063
by:

Don’t know what I was thinking not having one of these. My 1971 Avion pulls so easily with this I sometimes forget its back there. It’s a must have. The weight is balanced between the tow vehicle and the trailer and the anti sway bar is a much needed added bonus. If you don’t have a weight distribution and anti sway bar you are asking for trouble. These are trouble preventers.



- C17063
by:

The hitch works as intended. All in all I would buy again. As far as weight distribution hitches does this is one of the nicer ones I have had

I am very pleased with the weight distribution hitch. The paint still looks good. The product performs just as described. I can haul six horses plus tack, hay and feed with no issues. I drive a ford lariat F150.


Comments
I am still very pleased with the hitch. The clips that hold the brace bars up are not a very good design. I have rigged them up a couple times so I can use the load leveler.

The hitch was exactly what I wanted. It worked perfect and was easy to put together. E-Trailer was great to deal with. I ordered it and it was shipped the same day. One happy camper!!

Load leveling hitch and ball was as advertised, at the lowest price I could find anywhere (online or locally). Super durable heavy weight construction that made pulling large trailers a breeze without swaying, and level with vehicle even while using a standard 1500 Suburban with eBrakes. Delivery was quick and painless.... I couldn't ask for anything more from an online purchase than what I got from etrailer.com I would definitely purchase from them again for any product I need.

Easy to install and works great. Set up on 1/2 ton pick-up puling a 7,000# travel trailer. E-Trailer has a lot of great information on how to choose the right product and install it.

At the last minute I ordered this hitch to use with our new toy hauler, hoping it would arrive on time. etrailer said it would arrive on Friday, and we planned on leaving on a camping trip on Friday afternoon. I had it shipped to my office and it arrived as promised. Arriving home, my wife watched as I installed the hitch and reconnected the van to the trailer. Everything went smooth, the hitch worked flawlessly, and we are once again a satisfied customer. Thanks etrailer.

Product was delivered as shown in add. Box was a mess all torn up but all parts were intact. Installation instructions were complete and easy to understand. Very satisfied with complete process.
