  • Hate the rigid ride you can get with other hitches that have built-in sway control
  • Want a really easy-to-set-up system with everything included
  • Have a trailer with 500 lbs – 800 lbs of tongue weight

No, if you:

  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns
  • Have a lifted truck and need a decent drop
  • Put your gear through the ringer and need super-heavy-duty parts that will stand up to the abuse

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.


Integrated Active Sway Control

The TruTrack weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved primarily thanks to the specially designed system head.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings in Detents

On top of the trunnions, there are spring-loaded ball bearings that rest in detents built into the underside of the head. As you travel down the road normally, these ball bearings help to keep the trailer in a straight line by applying pressure inside these detents.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings out of Detents

When sway occurs, the trunnions move inside the head, causing the ball bearings to come out of these detents. When this happens, the ball bearings ride along internal grooves in the head as they work to return to the detents to snap the trunnion back in place. This action effectively returns your trailer to center.


TruTrack Spring Bar Bracket

Additional sway control is created by the spring bar brackets. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also permits a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Allowing the spring bars to hang freely also minimizes the tension described earlier. This limits your system's ability to hold your trailer in line behind your tow vehicle.


Not only do the brackets on the TruTrack work to constantly hold your trailer in line, but they also supply friction to force it back into place should any sway occur. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Forged Steel Spring Bars

The TruTrack's 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, the TruTrack's spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.


Simple Spring Bar Setup

TruTrack Spring Bar Install

The support brackets of the TruTrack easily clamp onto your trailer frame to provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars on the brackets during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar onto an L-shaped bracket. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.

Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW - C17499

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (466 Customer Reviews)

Built-in, active sway control keeps your trailer in line by using specific tension points and steel-on-steel resistance. System head is adjustable so you can easily achieve the proper tilt.

by:

I've been using this hitch for a year now and I don't think I will ever use a different one. Upgraded from a chain type hitch to this one and immediately noticed a difference. No more white knuckles. I feel comfortable driving everywhere with one hand on the steering wheel. My hitch is the 8k and my TT gross is 77k. The only drawback that I've seen is that you have to watch hitting the trailer during very sharp turns. I will be purchasing the trutrack again after upgrading my travel trailer.




by:

This TRU Track is great no more sagging, No more trailer swaying and the trailer response and control is outstanding.




by:

Curt Weight distribution and anti sway hitch arrived a day before scheduled delivery. It was doubled boxed, and there were no missing parts. Good job etrailer. Some reviews reported missing parts because of the heavy weight breaking the box.


Comments
Great. We have traveled over 12,000 miles with this product, and we still have a smooth ride.

Price wasn't terrible, assembly and installation was pretty simple,instruction were great. I have a 2019 ram 1500 with a 2 inch lift. Camper is a 27ft dry weight is 5900 lbs with a 600lb tongue weight. Pulls like a dream. I can cruise at 74mph with little to no sway. When hit with a gust of wind, the weight distribution/sway bars correct the sway very quickly. Very happy with the setup. Called customer service to track the package delivery as I recieved the hitch ball the day before the hitch setup arrived. She was extremely friendly and was able to track my other package very quickly and give me an eta. Great experience all around




by:

This is my first install and use of a weight distribution/sway control hitch and it was a straight forward and easy process to do the install. It's been great to use and the ride near on my Tacoma is very smooth with a trailer close to my trucks published tow limits.




by:

Installed it this past Saturday morning, for a new, larger/longer trailer that swayed a bit with my older chain-link equalizer system. Like doing anything the first time, it took awhile longer, figuring things out and having tools laid out. It would go much faster next time! Good instructions, got the set-up pretty good the first go-round (height and weight distribution and vehicle/trailer proper levels), did have to adjust it two more times to get it perfect. I do mean perfect. Got to the point adjusting height and loading on the equalizing/sway bars only took 15 minutes start to finish! Fine product, out on the road it worked great. The sway I had with the old chain-link equalizers was all but gone. Glad I spent the money for better safety!


Comments
Has worked as expected, performed well. I pull a 31 travel trailer with a 2018 Dodge Durango The match-up of pull vehicle to travel trailer is on the edge of acceptable and this set-up keeps it where it belongs, and on the very rare occasion, pulls it back where it belongs. 1000s of miles with no issues. I WISH they made a product that maintained friction and reduce some of the noise when turning sharp.

Does a great job of keeping the trailer in-line, behind our truck. It did take some time to install and some getting used to. It does make noise when making tight turns but overall I have no real complaints!




by:

This works good




by:

Hitch was as expected. Sometime gets a little noisy from friction. One of the holding clips that holds the sway bar to the hitch broke and I’m concerned about losing it. Need to find another one




by:

Fantastic. Had a Reese trunion bar system for many years with a friction sway control. Worked OK but was missing something; Had bouncing with some sway. Just felt sloppy going down the road. Trailer is 5500 lbs with 650 lbs of tongue weight. Set this up per instructions. measuring front and back of tow vehicle and couple height. Hooked everything up and it is like a dream towing now. So glad I mad the investment in this system. Tow so nicely with no bounding and no sway. One system does everything and very well. Takes some time to set up with measurement and all but not bad. Al in all a great system and would recommend it!




by:

Seems like a quality product, but do have a few issues.
1. The ball detent angle should be adjustable such that the bars center in alignment with the trailer frame. Each change results in about a 15 degree total angle change, so what happens is the left and right bar forces are working against each other with both balls out of detent while driving straight. The system needs finer adjustment so the balls can be in detent while driving straight.
2. Would be nice to have more than one bar choice, especially for a car hauler. Being able to swap out bars would allow setup running heavy and light without doing a head adjustment. With solid mounted bar hangars, it would be nice to be able to add some more spring tension without breaking out an impact. Due to this issue, I would say this sway control system is more suited to a trailer running a constant weight (travel trailer) rather than a trailer with a wider weight range (car hauler). Option B would be to give a second, lower tension shelf for the bar to be put on while running lighter. I may end up modifying my bar mounts to do this.




by:

It does the job well! Our tow vehicle could handle (Ram 2500) our travel trailer (26' 6k) decent without but it makes our trips less stressful when it comes weather and traffic.




by:

Well I wish I had purchased the next size down. We pull a 4,000 lb trailer with 400 lb+ tongue weight. my thinking was, after we got the trailer loaded with all of our camping junk we would need this heavier hitch. This thing is a beast. it's very heavy. that said, it has plenty of adjustment to get your rig level, it also seems to take any sway out of the trailer. So, just give it some real thought before you add more weight to the back of your tow vehicle than you need.




by:

etrailer customer support is excellent! I talked to Nick a couple of times before ordering a weight distribution hitch for my travel trailer. I received the hitch two days after ordering but unfortunately there was some shipping damage so I refused the shipment. The next day etrailer processed another shipment and two days later I received the hitch which was in excellent condition. I would highly recommend them because of their excellent service and support.




by:

Just installed a week ago. Went on easy but instructions could be better. Etrailer videos made install a snap and only took 40 minutes. Make sure your hitch ball has a 1 1/4 “ shank as anything smaller will need an adapter. Makes my 33’ trailer sit and ride like a dream.




by:

Wow what a difference this made in my F150 pulling our Forest River Wildwood....it’s heavy duty and meant to last...the packing was excellent and service with etrailer.com was perfect...great people to deal with




by:

Best unit for its purpose ! Grease daily with some Lucas White Lithium grease and you are good to go. Amazing how the sway control works. Well built. Better grab it with both hands due to its weight!




by:

Just installed my curt weight distribution system on my truck. My truck use to slump terrible, where actually my chains would drag the ground and with my curt weight distribution system it is now perfectly level. I’m pulling 4600 pounds with my tractor and 20 ft trailer. Could not be more happy with the system and etrailer gets a big thumbs up for their help in getting me the right system and for their excellent customer service.

I like it.
The guy at the RV lot hates
them because it a bit more work to install than the kind with the two chains. So what.

I wanted certainty. It's slight overkill for my 28' RV but slight overkill is okay.




by:

Product is as advertised. The trailer feels more stable when towing, both sway and bounce. I bought it for bounce, because I have a 1500 and tow a KZ 18’ travel trailer and I cart about 1800 pounds of tools in the back of the truck.

The set up was simple. If you are not very handy it might take a little time, and get it with the ball already installed. I had to weld mine on, because Harbor Freights ball was 1” shank, and I needed it for the next day.

Thank you.
Joseph




by:

Heavy duty quality product at a great price. Following the direction it will take between 30 minutes and several hours to get setup for the first time. After that its ready to go in a just a couple minutes.




by:

Well worth it. The truck sits way more level and handles as if there wasn't even a trailer attached. This is my first weight distribution hitch so it took a while for me to set up but it wasn't too difficult.




by:

easy ordering, on time delivery

Wonderful service and products.

  • Where to Install the Mounting Brackets of the Curt TruTrack # C17499 Compared to the Hitch Ball
    I spoke with my contact at Curt who said that the ideal location for the brackets is 28" on your frame from the hitch ball for the Curt TruTrack # C17499. He did say that they designed this Weight Distribution (WD) system so that you have a little more freedom in where you mount the brackets due to propane tanks or other accessories so there is a little wiggle room in the exact location.

    I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17499 that you are installing on your trailer. He said that you can install the support brackets 6 to 6-1/2 inches from the end of the spring bar without issue. This is perfectly fine to do. The ideal bracket position is 4 to 6 inches in from the spring bar but going a bit over the 6 inches is much better than going below the minimum because as you mentioned, you can start to run into the risk of...

  • Does Weight of Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution Hitch 17499 Need to Be Factored In
    When doing your math on trailer tongue weight (TW) you do NOT need to include the actual weight of your selected weight distribution hitch, such as Curt's TruTrack # C17499, because this weight is essentially suspended between the vehicle and trailer. The TruTrack is rated for total TW of 500 to 800-lbs so it would be ideal for an actual effective TW of 650-lbs, which is in the middle of its effective range.

  • Can Weight Distribution Systems Help with Towing Trailers Close to Your Hitch's Max Towing Capacity
    If you're looking to improve your vehicle's towing capacity with a weight distribution system, there are two things you need to keep in mind. First, your hitch needs to be rated for a WD system. That is to say, though you can use one of these systems with most any hitch, that won't necessarily increase the hitch's capacity.
