2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Weight Distribution System Recommendation


Looking for a hitch compatible with a weight distribution system for a 2022 Santa Cruz, or a weight distribution system compatible with the factory hitch.


Expert Reply:

The great thing about weight distribution systems is that they are universal so as long as the trailer hitch is rated for a weight distribution system then you can definitely utilize one. The aftermarket hitches for your 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz aren't rated for weight distribution but when I took a look at the online owner's manual for your vehicle it did mentioned weight distribution so I recommend reaching out to your local Hyundai dealer to get a little more information on the factory hitch to make sure the one you have installed is safe for this application.

When looking into purchasing a Weight Distribution (WD) system you want to find one with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer, which you can use part # e99044 for, along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer.

Since your Santa Cruz can tow a max of 3,500 - 5,000 lbs the Blue Ox TrackPro # BLU36FR is a great option for you. This has a tongue weight range of 200 lbs - 600 lbs which will be right in your wheelhouse.
