Width of Blue Ox BXW0556 SwayPro Weight Distribution System Chain Hanger Brackets


A couple questions... 1 Are the chains required to hang perfectly plumb or is there so wiggle room to the 29inch dimension from center of coupler? I may have issues with brackets for Propane tank and battery 2 What is the width of the brackets that attaches to camper frame?


Expert Reply:

According to Blue Ox, in order to achieve the proper weight distribution performance, the chain hanger bracket would need to be installed no more than 1 inch fore or aft of plumb.

The portion of the frame bracket that passes over the top of the frame member measures 4 inches in width. At its widest point, the portion of the bracket that abuts the side of the frame member is 5-3/4 inches.

Blue Ox does offer a separately-available under-mount lift bracket as part # BXW4020. The bracket sits atop the frame member, but doesn't wrap all the way around, which might work for your application.

I've provided a photo showing these dimensions.
