Availability of Articulating Weight Distribution Shank


I was wondering of there is any type of weight distribution hitch that will work with Lock and roll hitch setup? I need and articulating hitch but would also lime to use weight distribution also and Im not sure its even possible. Thanks in advance

You wouldn't be able to use an articulating coupler setup for a weight distribution hitch, because there would be no provision for mounting the spring bars to the hitch.

We do offer shock absorbing shanks, such as the Gen-Y # GY54FR which offers up to a 6-1/2 inch rise or drop. The shank won't allow for side to side movement, but it will definitely limit the transfer of road shock from the trailer to the tow vehicle.

There's also a cushioned weight distribution shank that will help limit shock transferred to the tow vehicle, but to a lesser degree than the Gen-Y unit mentioned above. The # AMAC1 allows for a drop of up to 3-3/8 inches or a rise of up to 6-5/8 inches if used with a round bar system like the # C17062 you'd looked at.
