Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch with Sway Control for 2019 Vikiing 17FQS


Hi, I am interested in purchasing a Blue Ox weight distribution sway bar hitch but wasnt sure what model I needed for our travel trailer. It is a 2019 Viking 17FQS. Dry weight 3277 tongue weight 370. I believe the loaded weight is 4280. Thank you!


Expert Reply:

You will want to choose your weight distribution hitch based off of the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, and you'll want that weight to fall towards the middle of the prescribed range for the WD system. Because your 2019 Viking 17FQS will have a loaded tongue weight of at least 428-lbs I recommend using the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank # BLU36FR, which is ideal for trailers with tongue weights between 200-lbs and 600-lbs. This system uses steel on steel friction to provide sway control that works to prevent sway before it starts, so it's going to provide better sway control than chain hanger systems with spring bars.
