Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are impatient with making fine tune adjustments and would rather have a head assembly that you just bolt on and go
  • Have a trailer with 600 - 800 lbs of tongue weight and need either 8" of rise or 2" of drop to level your set up
  • Drive through areas with high winds where you'll need maximum sway control
  • If you're looking to improve trailer sway but it isn't your top priority
  • If you'd rather not have to listen to loud metal grinding noises during your trip
  • If your total tongue weight falls outside of its 600 to 800 pound range
  • If you want to reduce trailer movement at a more economical price

No, if you:

  • Would be bothered by having to readjust the bracket hardware on the trailer side a couple times a year
  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns
  • If you want to drastically cut down on anxiety during your trip
  • If reducing trailer sway is a top priority
  • If you want to back up the trailer with the system still attached
  • If you're looking for a system that's made in the USA

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 of 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, and it also gives you the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


Blue Ox weight distribution system

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 towing 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 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.


2 Types of Sway Control

The TrackPro features 2 different sway control technologies to provide the best towing experience possible.


Positive Caster Keeps Trailer Centered

Blue Ox TrackPro Positive Caster

The TrackPro is built with a positive caster angle - pointed toward the rear of your trailer - to help stop sway before it even starts. This is the same technology that vehicles use to stay centered on the road. When you turn a corner in your car and let go of the steering wheel, the wheel automatically corrects itself and returns to center. This is caster taking over. Likewise, the TrackPro features a positive caster angle built into the hitch. Working in tandem with the tapered spring bars to create a self-centering force, this caster angle helps to keep your trailer consistently centered behind your tow vehicle, even during high winds and sharp turns, resulting in a smoother towing experience.


Steel-on-Steel Friction Corrects Sway

Blue Ox TrackPro Steel-on-Steel Friction

While this system does its best to keep your trailer in line, the TrackPro is also able to correct sway should it occur. Unlike many traditional weight distribution systems with chain-style setups, the TrackPro uses steel brackets to hold the ends of the spring bars, and therefore your trailer, in place. While chain-style setups do a good job with weight distribution alone, they aren't really designed to limit sway, so they typically allow a good amount of side-to-side play.


In addition to better holding the trailer in line, these brackets create friction with the spring bars to combat sway that might occur in heavy winds or following sudden maneuvers. When this type of sway happens, the tapered ends of the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. This friction limits the movement of the spring bar, which minimizes further side-to-side movement of the trailer. The steel-on-steel friction that occurs with the TrackPro's spring bars is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars that weigh multiple tons, so you know it'll be highly effective.


Fast, Easy Setup

Blue Ox TrackPro Hitch Head

Many weight distribution systems require you to manually adjust the pitch of the hitch head by stacking washers. This can be a tedious, trial-and-error process where you have to unhook your trailer, disassemble the head to add or remove washers to get the desired tilt, put it all back together, and then determine if you have the correct placement. If the pitch still isn't right, you have to do it all over again.


The TrackPro removes all of that hassle with an easy-to-use hitch head that has the required pitch already built into it. Whereas other systems require washers to help achieve the proper tension in the head, the positive caster angle built into the TrackPro ensures the proper pitch, so there's no need to manually adjust the tilt. 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 rise or drop for your setup. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed.

I bought this in April '22 for our new trailer. The second day of our trip to Alaska, one of the Retaining Keys with the cotter pin fell off. It was while hooking up to our campsite that we saw it was gone and the spring bar bar had been free of mooring. Luckily we had a C Bolt and duck tape to hold the one sway bar without the retaining key and taped up the other to make sure it didn't fall off on the rest of our journey. When we called Blue Ox they sent two day to AK the two packages of the retaining key w/step. These turned out different than the ones that came on the TracPro and are thicker and shorter - I think these were suppose to come with the TracPro WD/Sway and should have been in the package when we got it. There is too much play between the sring bar and the L Bracket with the Retaining key that was in our order. Pictures for reference. If you order the Blue Ox TracPro, call make and sure you get the correct Retaining Keys with it, you should not have to buy them separately.

Hello, The weight distribution seems to work fine. We took our traveler trailer on 2 trips since purchasing the trailer hitch and all the accessories. The sway is just frightening. We have not had any real wind, this was in May and July of this year. But super scary, and when a tractor trailer passes us, even just one, forget it. We are towing with a big Ford Expition also. I would not recommend this model. It was expensive and we will have to figure out what we are going to replace it with. Gil


Comments
Excessive sway may indicate that the trailer is improperly loaded. As a guideline, the tongue weight should be 10-15 percent of gross trailer weight. If it is not, redistribute the weight accordingly. If you encounter continuous sway or swaying that does not dissipate quickly, adjust the load. I however, do not know your trailer or weights so you may need a biggerstronger system. If you let me know what you are working with I can get you a better system.

I used this twice and then purchased another brand, it did not fit my rig properly. In order to put the arms on the brackets (that are on the trailer) I had to raise the rear of the truck very high. Not fun or safe.


Comments
Using a trailer jack to lift the truck and trailer up a bit to take tension weight off the bars is often an easier way to put them on.

by:

Reliable beast of a hitch. Gives a smooth, sway-free ride with my 28’ trailer towed by a shorter Dodge Durango.




by:

The unit was delivered in about a week, all parts were there, and the instructions were easy to follow. I haven’t pulled my camper any real distance besides moving it around the house but looks like it leveled everything out.

One thing that was more annoying than anything was that the 2 5/16 ball came installed on the unit. According to the e-trailer experts the recommended hitch was 800 lbs tongue weight and 8000 lbs bars. My camper has only a 2” hitch which comes on the 600 / 6000 lbs rated hitch. So I had to remove the installed ball and buy a 2” hitch. Not a deal breaker but it would be nice to have the option to have a 2” installed for those of us needing the heavier bars but the smaller hitch ball.




by:

I went through 3 other weight distribution units before I received this blue ox .
It is very simple to install and worked very well so far . We have use it to tow a 23 ft trailer over 10 times with zero issues. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good WDH




by:

after one year i can say the improvent over distribution and sway is remarkably better than the "chained" system I had. Blue ox is easy to hitch up and very easy to disengage once you were at your destination.




by:

It went on fairly easy. It weighted more than I thought it would, I have had other WD hitches and it is the hardest one that I have used to hook up the trailer with. the tool to install the weight bars is very hard to use. I have not driven it on the high way but I think it will help my sway problem.




by:

Quality of material is good. would not recommend or purchase again due to difficulty of installation and use.




by:

We're so glad we spoke with Jaime B at etrailer when we were looking for a weight distribution hitch with anti-sway. She recommended this hitch for our new Grand Design Imagine XLS 17MKE travel trailer. It arrived much sooner than expected and I found the installation to be very straight forward. The quality of the product, materials and fabrication were top notch. I was fortunate that the brackets cleared everything and so I was able to finish all but the test drive in about 2 hours. Highly recommended. Thank you Jaime B!




by:

Wow!! What a difference in the tow.The Blue Ox Trackpro leveled my truck and camper out like they should be and the tow is like night and day. I would highly recommend this product to anyone




by:

I was told to purchase Blue Ox WDH from a friend. It seems to be very well built easier to attach and back up with still attached to trailer. Also seems to be smoother/quieter then other brands. It must be because of the load bars shape.




by:

On your web site I compared several different weight distribution with sway control hitches (good selection) and picked the Blue Ox TrackPro rated for my trailer. I watched your install video and before and after install demo on the test track, very impressive. I purchased, installed, did a test run and so far I’m very satisfied. Can’t wait to take it on a trip.




by:

My experience started off with a total failure by the shipping dept. Box completely blown out on both ends, and parts rolling around loose in the UPS truck.So my parts got beat up, management offered me 15 bucks for spray paint. Which they can keep. Assembled my hitch, amazed by having all the parts, despite the delivery. Great hitch, engineered well..




by:

Best investment I have made in my trailer other than the trailer itself. Works great




by:

Ordered for our 2017 Toyota Sequoia. The quality of the unit is quite impressive. Quality castings, machinings, powder coat paint, and welding. Also, really like the ease of setting it up.
Prior to placing the order, I had several techniacal questions related to hitch height and the selection of the capaciy of the hitch. The tech staff at etrailer were superb! Thanks much from a first-time WD hitch user.




by:

After much research, I feel I made the correct decision with this WD Hitch. The service department impressed me 100% with their assistance and patience with all my questions and advice between different models.




by:

No problems with this product. Little or no sway evident. A little noisy at times but I understand what’s happening.




by:

I called with a idea what I wanted . Stacy was more then helpful in getting me what I wanted. I asked for fast shipping and I received it a day earlier then I had hoped for. Every time I make a purchase or ask for help etrailer exceed my expectations. Thank you very much




by:

The 70 lbs plus Blue Ox Track Pro arrived in good shape but the cardboard container was pretty tore up. I’m not done installing the hitch. I had to move my propane tanks forward and remount. I’m well pleased with the components and the instruction manual.




by:

Arrived ahead of schedule. Took 1 hour to install.will try it out tomorrow. Have purchased from etrailer several times. Always great service.




by:

Poor packaging. The hitch bar was falling out of the package. Need to strap the package to prevent the box from falling apart.




by:

Very Satisfied with both product and se rvice.




by:

Great hitch.




by:

very easy to install
