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.

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.

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.
John M - 08/04/2022


by:

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.


Comments
After one year the hitch still is working great! I did some minor chain adjustments to my original setup and it works better now I went one link tighter
Edward - 08/27/2022


by:

The hitch came very quickly and was well packaged. I was surprised to find an upgraded chain tool and 20k lbs ball already attached to the hitch. The reason I have four stars was there was not option to select a longer shank length. So, $[XX] dollars later I was able to get an extended shank for my 3/4 ton truck.




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:

This is our second Blue Ox system, and we love it. It really holds the trailer tight behind the truck. The service from e-trailer was outstanding - I had an issue with my order (part my fault and part theirs) and they resolved it quickly and efficiently. They are so knowledgeable!




by:

Installation was easy trailer handles wonderful with this setup. Always been a believer in the Blue Ox equalizer hitch and integrated sway control.




by:

The Blue Ox SwayPro 1500 arrived today. Ordered online from eTrailer on Tuesday and delivered to West Michigan on Friday. FAST! etrailer service and support is always First Class. While heavy, the Blue Ox WDH was in perfect condition. The quality and appearance of the Clue Ox is great. The hitch is powder coated and very clean. I was impressed that Blue Ox has totally upgraded the chain latch wrench. No longer that flat piece of metal. The new wrench is a plated, heavy duty socket wrench. Much like a wheel lug nut wrench that is made especially for releasing the latches. Our new TT was delivered to our dealer while our state is in lockdown. There it sits until May 1. I will update review after install and first trip.
With all the changes in the world... very happy to purchase a product Made in U.S.A.




by:

No matter what product you end up buying from etrailer your going to be impressed by their customer service. I purchased the SwayPro Blue Ox BXW1500 for towing a trailer with 1000lbs of tongue weight when empty using a 2018 Nissan Titan. I have never been able to actually level my pickup before with other hitches that I’ve used. I can now level the pickup and trailer to within 1/2”. The BXW1500 was very easy to install. Hookup is simple and easy. When towing the hitch works silently and offers very good vehicle control. The parts of the hitch that you handle have no grease on them. I would recommend theBXW1500 for anyone experiencing truck squat while towing or is tired of a noisy hitch system.




by:

Have only used it to drive 15 miles from my trailer dealer to home, but I think I'm going to like this WDH. It seems to do the job, is relatively easy to use. The dealer I bought my trailer from mounted it for me, they'd done many before so it went quickly.
Some hints I'd learned from them and discussion forums - use the trailer jack to lift the front of the trailer/back of the truck to make it easier and safer to install or remove the chains. Use a long breaker bar with a 1" socket for the same reason - the extra leverage over that with the tool supplied with the hitch helps. I painted the chain link on each side that the dealer hooked to so I could get the tension back the way they had it. Will have to see how that works out in the long run, may have to adjust up or down.
FWIW, I measured the distance from the ground to the top of the front and rear fender wells on my truck before and after hooking up the trailer with the BO Sway Pro. The front ended up exactly where it was before, the rear dropped only one inch with 1000 lbs of hitch weight. I'd say the WDH is doing its job!


Comments
Ive replaced the 1 socket with a 26mm socket, as it fits better. Only snag we are running into is that the u-bolts that hold the chains to the arms are being bent and worn down from occasional ground scrapes. Ive purchased a pair of the little u-bolts and four self locking nuts from e-trailer, so Ill be prepared if they ever do rub or break off completely.

by:

As a RV transporter I highly recommend this weight distribution hitch. The first time I used a competitor’s hitch, the pins that held the bars in the head failed. Not going to happen with a Blue Ox.




by:

I couldn’t be happier with this product. It’s everything I was looking for I needed.




by:

I've driven over 11,000 miles this year, through snow, rain, and gusty winds and have no troubles with this hitch system. Just love it. The finish has chipped off, and in those areas, rust is developing. Otherwise a very good product.


Comments
Hi Douglas, Thanks for your feedback! With the powder coating being chipped off, I would recommend cleaning the rust off and applying a rust resistant paint to the bare metal. This will help prevent the rust from spreading. I have attached a helpful article that goes into better detail.

I have both an Equalizer and this Blue Ox hitch. I purchased the Blue Ox after I complained of a poor ride with my travel trailer to the dealer. They recommended Blue Ox instead. Frankly it didn't improve the ride at all. Worse, the bars hung so low that they scraped on every speed bump. However this was exacerbated by the way I had to set it up to make the ride at least tolerable. I have now changed travel trailers and tried both hitches on the new one. The new travel trailer sits significantly higher and rides much better. I don't have the problem of the bars hitting the ground. The ride also seems much better then when I use the Equalizer. The final problem I have with this hitch is the that saddle that holds the chains seems to stick very frequently and requires that I release the pin and force it to release the chain with the provided wrench - resulting in frequent minor injuries. Not sure why this happens but I'm getting better at forcing the release with no injuries. Just irritating.




by:

First I have to recognize and thank the excellent etrailer customer service. The etrailer team contacted me immediately to address an order issue, and did so quickly. The BXW1500 arrived in a timely manner, and the only issue was the shipping/handling by UPS. The box was rather beat-up, and the chains were hanging out, but all of the product was intact and we had no issue with install.

The ride is significantly better than the previous hitch from the dealer (R3 Recurve), and I have noted improved distribution across the axles at the scales. Previous setup was a lesser bar rating, and we determined the tongue weight and cargo was at the higher end of the bar. As such, we chose the 1500 lb TW bars.

The BXW1500 material and build quality is quite impressive, particularly in comparison to the previous hitch.

Vehicle and trailer is: 2015 Silverado 1500 with Max-Trailering Package and a 2020 GD Imagine 2800BH.

I replaced a broken old Eaz-lift hitch with this one on a 10k cargo trailer. The difference in ride quality is night and day. Well worth the step up in price. I feel like I'm driving a Cadillac compared to before. Set-up was easy, instructions were clear and concise. I greatly enjoyed not having to set the angle as it is built in. (Less to adjust, less that can go wrong/break).

I do a lot of backing up at sharp angles as I use my trailer for food deliveries in tight spaces behind small restaurants/stores. I've not had any issues with this hitch while doing so. My load weights also vary greatly from beginning to end of day (full vs. empty). It is as smooth empty as it is full. The bars have a broad tongue weight rating range which works great for my application!

I've not had it long enough to comment on long-term durability, but it is built tough and engineered smart. I expect it to last as long as I do. You get what you pay for. Great product!




by:

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE BLUE OX SWAY PRO!!!!! SUPER FAST EASY INSTALLATION & SET-UP. HOOK-UP & DISCONNECT TO TRAILER ARE A BREEZE. RELIEVE TENSION ON TORSION BARS A MUST WHEN CONNECTING & DISCONNECTING. TOP QUALITY CONSTRUCTION, MADE IN THE USA!!!! NEVER TOWED BETTER THAN WITH THE BLUE OX. THANKS E-TRAILER FOR SELLING SUCH GREAT PRODUCTS AT SUCH GREAT PRICES.




by:

For Etrailer, A+ for excellent customer service as usual! Shipping was very quick. Regarding the hitch, I think this one is going to be a real winner. Installation was quick and easy. Anyone with basic tools can easily install and setup this hitch. The only thing most people won't have is the 1 7/8" socket needed to tighten the nut that secures the ball to the hitch itself. You'd also need a torque wrench or impact wrench that can achieve [specs]. Instead, I just took it to a local shop. It took them two minutes and they didn't even charge me.

After installing and setting up the hitch, I took measurements of the height of the truck's front fender both hitched and unhitched. It was exactly the same, which as I understand is ideal. Without any weight distribution, the front of the truck rises about 1/2" when you drop the trailer on the ball.

I haven't towed with the new setup yet, but I expect it to do really well based on what I'm seeing so far. I'll come back and update after my first trip next week.




by:

The 21ft toy hauler tracks perfectly and there is little to no sway when being passed by a big rig on the highway! This is a great hitch.




by:

Best weight distribution solution on the market, in my opinion. I have owned a Blue Ox system for many years and haven't had an issue yet - been all over the country and have towed in many different conditions. I have owned other systems (friction based - way too noisy/loud)... this system does its job and does it quietly!! highly recommend Blue Ox!




by:

We were very lucky all the parts were in the box.




by:

Fast shipping! Everything was accounted for. Product is very high quality and does the job!




by:

First one was super easy to install, although it is absolutely heavy. Adjustment was easy. Attaching and detaching to the trailer is easy. I am at the maximum towing capacity of my truck, and this hitch works. No sway, no lift in the front. The back does squash down quite a bit, but I have a 100% stock suspension; no airbags.

My hitch was stolen. Someone broke the lock and removed it. I quickly purchased another one.

This would have been a 5 star rating, except for the shank of the second hitch. There seems to be too much powder coating on the shank. Even with some persuasion, I am unable to put the shank into the receiver. I submitted an issue to etrailer and look forward to hearing from them soon.

I have had nothing but great dealings with etrailer and when I had to purchase the second hitch, I went straight back to them.




by:

Easy and accurate ordering process. The item arrived ahead of my expected delivery date with everything as expected. I'll post an additional review after I install the hitch and give it a test drive.




by:

After making sure of weight distribution in trailer and checking to make sure hitch is correct on and proper set up I don’t feel the built in sway control works as advertise. I would like to add a sway control device if possible.




by:

Easy to setup and adjust mounting brackets. Distributed weight well. I have noticed a little sway on our 38 ft trailer but nothing of concern yet. I like this system over the old sway bar system. I would recommend this product.

  • Does Weight Distribution System Fix Sway that Starts at 60 MPH
    The type of sway you described is actually caused by the location of the cargo in the trailer and can't be resolved with a weight distribution system. What you need to do is move cargo weight as far forward in the trailer as you can to increase the tongue weight and the sway should stop. A WD system is great at stopping and preventing sway that occurs from heavy wind gusts but it will not compensate for a cargo loading issue.

  • Will Weight Distribution System Fix Trailer Sway on 2017 Grand Design Imagine 3150BH
    Persistent trailer sway actually does not get fixed with a weight distribution system as a WD system can only minimize sway from passing semi trucks or high winds. If you are experiencing a sway that starts at a certain speed and basically doesn't stop till you slow down the issue is most likely not enough tongue weight in your trailer. You need 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight as tongue weight and to have the trailer sitting as level as possible for the sway to stop. Sometimes...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for an Equipment Trailer that Needs Rise of 6-3/4 inches
    You wouldn't need a weight distributions system designed for an underslung coupler. Instead you would want a standard WD system with a shank that can do 6-3/4 inches of rise. The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution # BXW1500 that you referenced can do up to 10-3/4 inches of rise so it would work well for you in that regard. This system is designed for a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs to 1,500 lbs. You will need to verify that your tongue weight falls in that range.

If you find that you need more rise or drop than the existing shank can provide, Blue Ox does offer alternative shanks which I have linked for you.

The lighter system # BXW1500 is rated for a maximum tongue weight of 1,500lbs so you have already maxed out this system before you added any weight to it.

  • Correct Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System
    When connecting a weight distribution system you're not always going to be able to get completely back to unloaded stock height. The goal is to try and get as close as you can but it's not always realistic and your numbers aren't too far off so that's not the part I would focus on.

    Your tongue weight is a bit too light for a 1,500 lb tongue weight Blue Ox weight distribution system like part # BXW1500. This kit has a tongue weight range of between 1,000 and 1,500 lbs.

    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System, part # BXW2000 we carry is designed for a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch.

  • Availability of Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution with Shorter Shank
    Glad to hear that you found a weight distribution (WD) system that will work for your application. If the WD shank that comes with the Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW1506 is too long for your towing setup then the Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW1500 should be a perfect fit! This is the same exact system just with a small WD shank that gives you a max rise of 8" and a max drop of 2". Attached is a review video of this system for you to reference.

  • Blue Ox Sway Pro for Airstream Flying Cloud 28 and Ford F250 with Tongue Weight of 1,300 lbs
    For your tongue weight range the correct Blue Ox Sway Pro would be the # BXW1500 but you would need a drop ball mount shank to allow you the drop you need. For that you would need the part # BXW4002.
