Which Sway Control System For 14000lb Trailer With 2100lb Tongue Weight


I have a trailer that weighs about 14k lbs and has 2100 lbs of tongue weight. Can you recommend a sway control solution?


Expert Reply:

That is a lot of tongue weight for a 14k lb trailer! You are right at the top of the normal range of 10-15% of the trailer weight.

For you setup I recommend the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes - 1 to 4 Axles # 335TSC-1000 which uses utilizes your trailer's electric brakes to correct sway when it occurs.

I included a video of the Tuson # 335TSC-1000 for you to take a look at.

If you are looking to add a weight distribution system I recommend the TorkLift SuperHitch Everest Weight Distribution System # TLWD1000 due to its tongue weight rating of 1500lbs-3000-lbs. The TorkLift # TLWD1000 can be used with the Tuson # 335TSC-1000 or a bar style sway control system like the Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems # 17200. You will also need an adjustable shank # TLM9010 or # TLM9011 and a hitch ball with a 1 1/4 inch shank like the # BWHB94004.

I included a video of the TorkLift SuperHitch Everest # TLWD1000 for you to take a look at.
